Web Development Process

1 Discovery & Analysis
I research other companies similar to your own, and your user profile in order to come up with the goals of the design and creative strategy.
2 Information Design
I will provide you with an initial set of mock ups (wireframes) that match your user profile and requirements for your web-site. The mock ups will include how users will navigate and interact with your site.
3 Visual Design
After your acceptance of the wireframes of the site layout I move forward to create the final visual mock ups. After I receive your feedback I make revisions if required and supply you with new visual mock ups. Once we are all happy with the content we move on to the next stage.
4 Technical Design & Coding
After the design is finalised and accepted I will hand code your site in XHTML, CSS and javascript and check the site across a number of browsers.
5 Content Management System (CMS)
By creating a WordPress web-site you will be able to include a blog or latest news section and update your content yourself. You will also be able to personally add pages to your site by using a Webblog software (content management system). WordPress is my CMS of choice as it is easy for you to use and is the preferred choice of the majority of qualified web developers in the market place. Meaning you will not have to be reliant or tied to one webmaster. I carry out this part of the process once the initial technical development is complete.
6 Content Entry
You are to supply me with your final text and pictures that is to be included in your site. If choosing to have a CMS the additional cost of the software can be offset by entering your own content. Clients often find that they make many revisions to their text content while refining their site in the run up to launch. Although I do these as quickly and cheaply as I can, many clients are on a budget and prefer to avoid inevitable extra costs and delays so they are happy to make revisions themselves . Once the revisions are complete and you feel you would like make use of a professional proof reader I can arrange this for you at a very reasonable rate.
