Web design refers to the design of websites that are displayed on the internet. It usually refers to the user experience aspects of website development rather than software development. Web design used to be focused on designing websites for desktop browsers; however, since the mid-2010s, design for mobile and tablet browsers has become ever-increasingly important. A web designer works on the appearance, layout, and, in some cases, content of a website. Appearance, for instance, relates to the colors, font, and images used. Layout refers to how information is structured and categorized. A good web design is easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and suits the user group and brand of the website. Many webpages are designed with a focus on simplicity, so that no extraneous information and functionality that might distract or confuse users appears. As the keystone of a web designer’s output is a site that wins and fosters the trust of the target audience, removing as many potential points of user frustration as possible is a critical consideration.
In the first phase of creating a website with the client, we try to gather as much information that is relevant to the project. The first step is actually the most important. It includes a detailed introduction to the business of the company for which the website is working.
When designing a website, we use ready-made templates that we further modify and harmonize with the visual identity of your company. We opted for this way of working because it significantly speeds up the process of creating a website and reduces its price, but not quality. We usually offer 3-5 different design styles.
This phase depends on your request, ie whether you want a static website or a dynamic website. In short, content is initially entered on a static web page during design, and the client does not have the ability to add and edit content, while dynamic web pages do. The "tool" for editing and adding content to a website is the CMS system.
Many skip the website optimization phase, so we will try to raise awareness of the importance of this step in website development. Users search the Internet every day with countless websites. Those first few web pages that appear on search results (Google, Yahoo. Bing, etc.) usually grab all the attention of users.
Now that the website is ready, testing follows. First of all, we like to know if our design code is up to standard, so we test the entire website in a W3C validator that goes through our HTML code in detail and reports any errors. Then we evaluate the program code, making sure that we do not hide any "Bug".
Once we are convinced that everything is as we imagined, delivery follows. On the day of delivery, there is no need for changes because the final version of your new website has been available on our test server for several days. So that day your new website is just uploaded to our production server, the domain is redirected and the email messages are synced. It takes one to two business days to deliver a website online.
