How Our Web Development Process Works

Design

Design

Drawing from your requirements, the design of the website is created bespokely in Photoshop by one of our designers. We’ll work closely with you during this phase, exchanging ideas until we arrive at the final design for your website. Factors such as the organisation’s brand and target audience play a key part in developing the overall visual style of the site. By the end of this first stage, we deliver the design of the website and all subsequent pages in PDF format to be signed off. 25% of the overall cost of the project is due at the beginning of this phase.

During this web development phase, the graphic elements from the final prototype are used to develop a digital version of the approved PDF design. You will receive a testing link to view the design and a framework for the website’s operation on our staging server (To note: this is not the completed website. Some backend development will not yet be in place so not all functionality will be available).25% of the overall cost of the project is due at the beginning of this phase.

This is the phase in which the website functionality is developed and content populated as outlined in the proposal. For Ecommerce websites, this means adding products, and set up of shipping and payment capabilities. In the case of website redesigns, content may be sourced from the previous site where applicable. If copywriting or new content is required, this will also be developed at this stage.25% of the overall cost of the project is due at the beginning of this phase.

Testing & Launch

Testing & Launch

Phase 4 - Testing & Launch Before site launch, testing will be carried out in staging in order to ensure that the site functions as per requirements, as well as testing for website interoperability and mobile/browser considerations. In the cases where search engine optimisation is required, this will also be performed during this phase. CMS training can be provided in advance of launch if required, to ensure that you are able to update your website’s content with ease.The final 25% of payment is due at the end of this phase, and the project is signed off to go live.

Fast, efficient & accessible web development.

Having a fast, well-coded, accessible web site creates an enjoyable online experience and helps improve rankings in Search Engines.

We are skilled at ‘hand coding’ web development and don't rely on applications to write our development code and we implement performance best practices to keep our sites fast so they are loved by search engines and users.

Using modern technologies like HTML5, CSS3, JQuery, PHP and MySQL in our web development to enhance user experience and functionality, we can create interesting visual effects that will engage users.
