Take a look at our brief 1, 2, 3 website design and development process…

01

Identifying the purpose and main aims of a website and gathering as much information about your business and your customers at the very first stages will help shape the landscape for your project, set a direction for planning and help keep costs down. Typically you might also look at the basic customer journey – what information do you need to get to them and how quickly. What are the primary goals for the website? To generate sales, easy access to information, latest news / regular updates?

02

After planning, comes the initial design, layout concepts, content collation and copywriting. Design looks at how the website will look and be mapped out including the user experience (how easy or pleasing a website is to use across all aspects of the entire website creation process) and the user interface (visual layout of the elements that a user might interact with in a website). Critical to the success of any website is good content. Keeping things clear and concise is key.

Development, testing and deployment. This is where the website is actually built in HTML, CSS, perhaps using a CMS such as WordPress with a database and customised template. This stage is where all the design assets and elements as well as the agreed copy can be added to the website. There should always be several rounds of testing a website for ease of use, accessibility, feedback and bug fixing before deployment.

Think of a new website as really just the great beginning of a journey…

After deployment and official launch there’s always regular work to be continued including monitoring performance, ongoing updates, feedback and fixes as well as a future vision timeline for the development of the next generation of the website. These are all critically important factors to consider when budgeting for your website, as they can sometime be forgotten. Websites and social media can’t be left alone or forgotten about after launch! Effectively, they are never really finished until deleted – they are only ever started and developed.

Exactly how much work a website will be after launch and into the future depends on many factors. There are significant advantages to keeping your website updated. These include things like maintaining functionality, accessibility, security, keeping content fresh and accurate and improving search engine ranking. Keeping your content and site updated also helps to ensure repeat visits and offers an easy way for people to stay in touch with what you are doing.

‘Creative Bytes enormous help in developing the Biblefresh website was invaluable. The final overall design was almost completely based upon Creative Bytes initial design ideas. Creative Bytes developed some of the CSS and assisted in the WordPress/PHP development.’
