Branding, Identity & The 3 Phase Design Process

Branding, identity & the 3 phase design process

We work alongside you from concept to completion using our three phase design process of review & revise. We like to remain flexible, but aim toward a method we have formulated over the years that we think best serves everybody involved in the design process.

We will work with any ideas that you may have for the design of your website. Please contact us to discuss using the Contact Form, or our fill in as much as you like of our Website Brief, to help define your requirements & objectives, alternatively feel free to call us on (+44) 0745 333 6400 to discuss

Phase 1

Careful consideration and clear communications! overall design layout & navigation/menu system

In phase 1 of our the website design process, reviewing the first design draft is the time to look closely on the initial development result of yours & our ideas combined. Then point out things that you absolutely do not like, things that you want to keep as part of the finished design & to tell us of any changes you would like us to consider & make if possible. We have found this to be a crucial point in the design process. Complete 'back to the drawing board' decisions are made here in Phase 1 where they will not incur you extra charges, before moving on to Phase 2 which we do on your go-ahead.

Phase 2

Review and revise - minor adjustments & alterations, refining graphical elements within layout

In Phase 2, on receiving your feedback, we make any adjustments and alterations we have discussed to the agreed overall design, for you to review again, (in the unlikely event that there are more minor adjustments we can slip in phase 2.5 for you)

Here is the best time to be sure that we have achieved a design and navigation/menu system that you are happy with and on your approval, we then move onto Phase 3.

Phase 3

Refine and complete

We will at this stage, have reached the design that you are happy with. Now we continue with further development, refinement & testing until your new website is ready to launch.

A new website, whether it's an online initiation or a redesign, even if your previous website was working well, only helps keep people interested & provides the opportunity for a launch, which can be synchronized with a special incentive to existing & potential clients to come on board. We will advise on this.

 

Tech talk

We prefer to create our websites using Joomla because of its bespoke design potential and the abundance of applications, features, and upgrades that are developed to integrate with the Joomla infrastructure. Joomla developers have their finger on the pulse. Our websites are what are called data driven websites, a data-driven website uses data from a database to dynamically assemble web pages using live data from a database and uses a database management system called My SQL. Database driven websites such as this are dynamic and allow for live, real-time interactivity and great content management systems for both behind the scenes developers such as us and front-end managers such as you the website owner.
