Process

1. Understand the brief.

A website can only be built as smoothly as it is planned. That is why it is so important to make sure we both fully understand the brief. Sure you want a website, but what does this website do? What does it say about your business and what features does it have?

Many people take it upon them selves to create a full project brief without the help of their designer and the end result is unfortunately an impractical, confusing and over complicated website.

This is where I come in, let’s grab a coffee and chat about what your business wants from the website. From there, I can list features that can help, bounce design ideas around and help you understand how your website can extend your business.

2. Build the sitemap.

A sitemap is a simple visual representation of all the pages on your website. Building a sitemap can reveal overlooked pages and conflicts in information.

Having a clear set of pages allows us to group together relative information and simplify your website. Then we can start to design the experience your viewers will have.

a sitemap also helps me to give an accurate quote, discover necessary features and design an all round better website.

3. Layout the wireframe.


With a sitemap and a rough idea of content in hand, It’s time to lay all that information out into boxes. This box view is called a ‘wireframe’ and it is a visual representation of the content on each page.

A wireframe helps us to spot potential problems when moving around content. It shows us exactly what needs to be designed, what can and can’t be done, and what will look good..

4. Design.


Now it’s time to put all this planning to action. With the use of a wireframe and a sitemap I can start building a coherent theme to cater for every page.

Designing a good website is more than drawing a pretty picture. You need to take into account how this design will be perceived by the viewer? Will this design improve new or existing customer relations? Does it address the target audience? Is it practical? Can people use it intuitively? But most of all, I like to ask

does this design extend their business onto the web?

In a nutshell a good design is one that makes sense to all viewers, one that reflects the business visual identity and one that includes contemporary styles.

5. Develop.


Developing a website is the art of writing code to bring the 2D design to life. I mainly work with HTML, CSS & Javascript to create robust, efficient and smart websites.

I pride myself on writing good code that works across all browser and OS. Everything is simple, efficient and custom built from scratch. After 6 years of working on many unique websites, I’ve discovered many of the webs problems and have also found the solutions. I make sure every website I make is always a solution.

6. Launch.


So your website is built, tested and running fine? Then it’s time to launch this baby onto the net. To get a website out there in the inter webs you need to do a few things:

1. Purchase a domain (www.yourbusiness.com) -  around 1000 Rs./ INR  a year

2. Purchase hosting for the domain -  around  450 Rs./ INR  a year

3. Set up emails

4. upload all files and databases to the host and stitch them all together

5. Sit back and relax

Did you like the sound of step 5? I provide a launching service for all my websites where I take care of everything listed above and charge you less than if you were to do it all yourself.
