Our Web Design Process

There is no right or wrong process to design a website. It really depends on what we agree to deliver, or the scope of the project. The main reason why the scope matters is two things, Time and Money. We prefer fixed prices because it gives both parties, you as our customer and us as your web developer to have a common understanding.  
Consultancy

The process begins with a two-way consultation to identify what you want, why you want it and how we can help you achieve your goals. We need to discuss and determine the markers for success so we can ensure that your new website not only makes a difference for users, but reinforces your business ambitions.

 

Scoping

The fundamentals of our website designs derive from exhaustive competitor analysis, evaluation of your current website and scoping of the functions we will utilise and the website content management platform on which we will build. From these, we can formulate a detailed plan for what will put your new website above and beyond the industry standard.

 

Planning

Powerful machines that stand the test of time aren’t built without blueprints.This is the stage at which we finalise our web development plans by documenting all your new website requirements, drawing up the site map and assessing the necessary functions for your new website.

Design

We’re not just a web design agency; we’re an all-inclusive digital agency, so our web designs are as fixated on beauty as they are on usability. We collaborate with our dedicated Design team to ensure that the eyes and mind of every kind of visitor are satisfied with the overall user experience.

 

Development

Using an appropriate combination of Waterfall and Agile development processes, we implement the solutions that will transform your web presence. All code is version controlled and adheres to our defined coding standards, which means that more than one of us can work on it at any one time.

 

QC & Go Live

Following a careful construction process, we test everything from the foundations to the decorations in a three-stage testing procedure.Our website developers run through the site with a fine-toothed comb, our internal testing team gives it a rigorous review and a crowd-sourced third party testing team provides an outsider’s evaluation.

What is involved in designing a website?

The structure of a website is coded by using a coding language and it is widely known as HTML. HTML coding is used to create the structure of the website and to display content. Each web page contains its own HTML coding structure with a unique page name commonly known as a URL. Similar to painting a house, after creating a structure, the aesthetics are added by using the CSS coding language. Each HTML web page can extract design elements from a single CSS file. The separation of structure from aesthetics (design elements) means, changes can be applied consistently through out all pages by simply editing the CSS code in one file.

The design and development process gets to another level of complexity if a business requires the content to be self-managed. The self-managed content requires a separate interface to be used to create and edit content without the users having to use HTML coding language. Providing the ability to self-manage a website is commonly known as having a Content Management System (CMS) for a website.
Similar to a Microsoft Word document, a content management system will allow a user to create and/or edit content easily from a user-friendly interface. Once saved, new content will be automatically published to the website, making it the ideal solution for regular user interaction. Regular updates to a website and rich content are loved by search engines, as it helps users with useful information that are current and relevant.

There are several different options available for a Content Management System. Based on licensing requirements there are free (open source) platforms as well as paid platforms offered by companies. At HELLO PEOPLE we use free platforms not because that they are free, but they also are the most widely used platforms in the world. WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal are names that you hear often, and they are leading the way in open source content management platforms powering millions of websites.

Mobile Friendly Website Design

How does a mobile friendly website work?

In a nutshell, a mobile web design uses the standard navigation buttons provided by the mobile phone manufacturers while automatically resizing its screen to fit the width of the mobile device. This is commonly known as ‘responsive website design’. If you want your customers to use their standard mobile and tablet features while they access your website, there are a great number of factors to consider. From loading times to font sizes, to understanding which bits of your website visitors may want to access when they’re on the run, mobile responsiveness means thinking carefully about every aspect of a visitor’s mobile experience.

Here are some of the key considerations when developing a mobile friendly website:

  • Graphic with significant loading times must be kept to a minimum to speed up their mobile experience. If required, there are methods to skip large image displays on mobile devices.
  • Mobile websites are built to adjust to any screen size. There’s no need to spend precious time zooming in, zooming out and painstakingly navigating a page.
  • Menu links are clear, even without the hover or mouse-over feature of a desktop computer. The standard web based menu will get converted to a mobile compliant drop down or select type menu.
  • Key information is as accessible as possible via mobile. This could mean careful analysis of mobile visitor flow, a slicker mobile menu and an alternative mobile site architecture.
