Website Design

We design and develop modern web solutions with a professional design using the latest technologies and trends to both existing and new clients based in Dorset.

Our team started building functional, yet creative websites in 2010, since then technology has come a long way and so has our team. The AUO Design team are a family of Graphic Designers, SEO Specialists, UI/UX Experts, Social Marketing Wizards, Web Development Masters and Branding Gurus.

Every website follows our 7 phase development process ensuring that no key step is missed along the way, by the time a website has been launched it would have been reviewed by every member of our team to ensure that it ticks every box.

Our 7-Phase Website Design Process

Analysis

STEP ONE

The creation of all good websites starts with an understanding of the clients and their requirements. We start by gaining an in-depth idea of the website purpose. We identify the goals of the site along with the audience it is going to target. After gathering the necessary information, we analyse it to get the data we need for the next phases.

Target Audience

Planning

STEP TWO

The planning phase involves collating the data gathered to develop the basic blueprint of the website. The sitemap is developed in this phase along with the structure of the website. The technologies that will be utilised in the development and design of the site will also be determined in this phase.

Design

STEP THREE

This phase starts off with the development of the wireframe models. The visual style is planned out and incorporated to ensure an aesthetically pleasing appearance of the site. However, focus is also given on the usability of the site so as to simplify the user interface and make it intuitive. Effort is taken to ensure the best possible overall user experience as well.

Content

STEP FOUR

The usefulness of a site greatly depends on the content it provides. As a result, copywriters are brought into the project to develop content for the various pages of the site. Care is taken to ensure that the content is not only unique and original but also provides something of value to the visitor. Along with the text, photos and videos are also incorporated to enhance the visitor’s experience. All content undergoes optimisation not only for SEO but also for the readers.

Copywriting Original and Unique Page content
Photos and Videos of Business or Services
Offsite Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Development

STEP FIVE

This is the phase in which the site is finally developed with the chosen technologies such as HTML and CSS. Databases and other essentials of the site are created as per requirements. Finally, responsive design is incorporated to ensure a seamless experience for mobile users.

Testing

STEP SIX

Once the site is completed, it undergoes rigorous testing. Apart from technical testing, the site’s compatibility with various browsers is tested so that everyone can access and view the site as intended. We recently added a new review stage to our design process, using the latest in AI technology we run your website through Poe (attractive.ai) and ensure that your site is as user friendly as possible.
Finally, we ensure that the site fulfils the purposes for which it was designed.

Browser Compatibility
Bug Testing
Third-party Feedback

Launch

STEP SEVEN

Once the site has been tested and errors rectified, it is deployed. Visitors start pouring in. However, the site may still need further work post-deployment. It is monitored for any bugs and issues that affect its usability or experience. The site is maintained and regular updates pushed so that the issues are rectified as and when they crop up.

Monitoring
Website Maintenance and Updates
These phases take into account the complete lifecycle of a website enabling you to enjoy your peace of mind.
Your site will be able to keep your visitors coming in and transform them into paying customers.

Michael and his team manage and maintain our e-commerce website (Steel Work Southern). They're always a phone call or email away when we need them, we regularly need products altered and bits changed and they're fantastic. The way that they're handling this pandemic demonstrates how much they care about their clients, they've cut our hosting costs to £0 during everything thats going on and reduced the alteration fee to something like £5 an hour which shows that they're not all about money. I cannot recommend them enough!
