It is essential to create a positive initial experience for new visitors to ensure they return. Furthermore, it is essential to maintain a clean and efficient environment for those who work there. Additionally, it is essential not to underestimate the value of repeat customers by letting the space become disorganized
At the start of our process, we come together with our strategists to recap goals and ask questions such as the purpose of your business, what services you provide, and who the website is intended for. We take notes and then commence with an SEO and content audit of your website and those of your competitors. If necessary, we will assist you in creating brand guidelines to ensure everyone is on the same page about your business and purpose before we start building.
As an experienced web design company, we go through your content audit with you, create a basic sitemap, and then carry out a full sitemap. This is an effective way to begin to think about the elements that will be included in your new design and how visitors can navigate through it for a fulfilling experience.
We have a thorough understanding of your content now, and it’s time to begin the process of applying it to the new space. To do this, we will bring in a user experience (UX) designer, who will act as the architect. They will use the sitemap to create wireframes, which are the prototypes of every page and menu on your website. The prototype doesn’t contain any color, similar to a structural blueprint. This is to ensure your focus is on the functionality of the new design, rather than its appearance.
The layout of your new website design is different from that of your current one, so it will take some work to make sure the two match up. You may have increased your range of services or products, undergone a rebrand, or decided to produce more content to optimize conversions and SEO.
By incorporating the sitemap and prototype into the renovation, it often becomes apparent that there are rooms lacking sufficient content or with outdated content that doesn’t mesh with the updated space. Yes, this is quite common. Our web design company together a WordPress content prototype tailored to your approved UX designs. This block-based system is an efficient way to collect the content necessary for your new website. Further, we can assist you with locating images, editing, writing, and SEO advice as we are dedicated to providing excellent service.
By combining your brand guidelines, the initial research, and a separate brand kickoff meeting, we can determine how you would like people to experience your website, what lasting impression they should have, and your business’s overall personality. This information is then used to create mood boards. These provide previews of color palettes, typography, imagery, and CTA buttons.
Using placeholder stock images and Latin copy, the mood boards are typically applied to the UX design of your homepage so you don’t get too preoccupied with the content you’re still gathering. After it’s approved, all other pages of the design will be presented for your review. You can now see what your new web design will look like!
At this stage, the expert developers in our web design company write the code from your approved designs to build a personalized website for your business and its content.
This entails filling the new site with all the information obtained from the content prototype, as well as any direct transfers that can be completed, like exporting a WordPress blog and then importing it to the new website.
