Proposed Website Solution

Your new website will be designed and developed to your exact specification and orientated towards creating an ergonomic and user-friendly experience. We will specifically be looking to make the site as accessible and as streamlined as possible, with a modern look and feel. The new construct will promote your organisation in a professional manner, with a clear structure and continuity that will look to strengthen your online presence.

Key areas which we’ll be focusing on throughout the design process:

MOBILE-RESPONSIVE DESIGN

Your site will be designed to react for optimal viewing on mobile, desktop and tablet devices. This ensures that its compatibility with the Google ‘Mobile-Friendly’ update.

SERVICES

The website will place emphasis on the portfolio of services available and utilise the best in class navigation to ensure visitors are easily able to find the information they are looking for.

CALLS TO ACTION & ENGAGEMENT

The site needs to be designed with clarity and encouragement for visitors to interact, view services and contact you for further information.

Content Management System

A simple, easy to maintain content management system will be incorporated to provide control and management of the new website content, pages and property portfolio.

OVERHAUL OF EXISTING DESIGN

A simple, easy to maintain content management system will be incorporated to provide control and management of the new website content, pages and property portfolio.

BRAND RECOGNITION

It is important to keep a clear understanding of brand recognition throughout the site (colour schemes, relevant images and a layout) which is lacking with the existing construct.

Our Web Design Process

Step 1Research

The first port of call is to understand exactly what it is you want and what your requirements, aims and goals are for your new website. This is to ensure we deliver not only what you want but what your customers actually want and are looking for. This ensures your website will deliver the results you’re expecting.

Step 2Brainstorming

Then our web team to map out a logical website structure and prioritise content accordingly. We will focus on delivering the ideal journey for each user which also integrates the aims and goals of your business. We then go ahead and create a specification document for the new project.

Step 3Design

Design is essential to the success of your website; as humans we see something and interact with it in order to fully understand it. The design of your website is so important as it represents your business and what you stand for and will therefore largely impact the customer’s decision to do business with you or not.

Step 4Build

Our approach to building your website is very much one of collaboration, flexibility and empathy. It can be challenging trying to design websites that meet both the clients and customer's expectations, something that we believe shouldn’t be made any harder by technical limits or a tough delivery process.

Step 5Test

One of the final parts of a new website is ensuring that it is tested thoroughly so that when it goes live it works perfectly. The two key areas that we focus on are usability and accessibility. Usability focuses on how users interact with your website and if there is anything we can do to improve it, and accessibility ensures that the website is accessible to users of all abilities.

Step 6Go-Live

Once we have fully tested the website and you are happy with everything we will deploy the finished version on our server. If we have developed a content management system for you we are also happy to provide training for your key administrators along with our user guide in order to ensure you are comfortable at updating the website yourself.

Step 7Support

We believe that supporting our customers after the website is complete is vitally important and something we pride ourselves on. We offer a 24 / 7 email support and ticketing support system to ensure any issues or difficulties you may have get resolved quickly and easily. All our projects are accompanied by a Service Level Agreement which covers any issues, bugs or errors that arise on the site including those that may arise due to the technical updates such as new browser releases.
