Web Designer Steps

While the needs of each project and client are unique, here are the general steps your web designer will take to move you from beginning to launch for your website:

Phase 1 – Kick-off

  • Initial consultation to review your needs and goals
  • Information and requirements gathering
  • Industry or organization research
  • Review potential site structure, color and style preferences, images, logos, etc.
  • Create a timeline and develop tasks
  • Review and decide on a plan together

Phase 2 – Conceptual Design

  • This is a collaborative effort with your web designer to determine the design architecture, which includes the overall look and feel, page templates, navigation and links, logo, banner, number of pages, and type of content required for each page
  • A prototype of the site will be created in Photoshop for determining final layout
  • At this stage, all the design components will be approved and content created

Phase 3 – Site Development

  • This step is the actual programming of the complete site and incorporation of all the components, including: all pages, links and navigation, banner, logos, text, Google Analytics, etc.
  • As this step is completed, you can test the site and any refinements will be made
  • If search engine optimization is included in the project, it will also be completed
  • At this stage, the site will be approved

Phase 4 – Launch

  • Upload the site and provide a valuable tool for your customers or visitors

Post Launch Activities

  • Update and expand the site as needed
  • Conduct search engine marketing where requested
