Web Design Process & Features
I will do a full analysis/assessment of your current site including areas that could be improved or changed. I will go over this with you in the consultation and provide a copy to you.
I’ll send you a list of questions that will help guide the changes to your website and allow for my initial analysis to become more in-depth.
1 Hour Consultation
We’ll go over the assessment of your website that I’ve prepared in advance, and look at the questions that will help guide the changes to your website. Most importantly, I’ll get to know you and your business so I can get the best sense possible of what you’re looking for.
I’ll research competitors, help you find your target market and ideal client, and analyze your Google Analytics (if it’s already set up).
I’ll organize your pages through a sitemap. This involves determining your navigation/menu, interior pages, and getting a sense of what will go on each one. It’s vital to have your content organized in the best way possible so it’s easy for users to navigate.
I’ll create a skeleton of your website with wireframes. They allow me to gather a sense of hierarchy, what images will go where, and what written content will fit where. It’s the basic structure of each page and aids in the design process.
WordPress Set Up
If you don’t have a website or it’s on a different platform, I can recommend a host and set up your site for you on WordPress.
I can improve your written content to better fit your audience, or create it if needed. I’ll also read over all the content to ensure there are no spelling mistakes or grammar errors.
I’ll show you rough design elements on up to 4 initial style tiles. This will give you an idea of how the website will feel and look in terms of colours, fonts, buttons, and textures.
I’ll create up to 2 design mockups of what your website will look like based on your choice of style tile(s) or combination of them. These design mockups will closely resemble how the corresponding page on your actual website could look.
Throughout these steps you’ll be providing your input so we’re on the same page. If you’re not happy with any of the style tiles I’ll get back to the drawing board until I’ve created something you’re happy with. With the design mockups, you’ll not only choose which one you prefer, but can make changes or suggestions to the design until you’re happy with it.
AODA Compliant (Accessible)
For Ontario, by the year 2021, many business websites must meet AA level compliance. I’ll ensure that your site fits the criteria (through both design and build) and is therefore accessible. Even if you aren’t required to be compliant, having an accessible website has it benefits, one of them being that more people can reach your site.
A premium WordPress theme will be used and customized so that the designs I create will accurately be reflected in the build. I’ll add any necessary plugins and/or custom CSS. Using WordPress will make it easier for you to manage your content.
If this is a redesign, I’ll create a staging site so there’s no down time between the design process and the new site going live.
Your website will be fully responsive, meaning that it will both work well and look good on desktops, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. The design and build will adapt to any screen size.
I’ll make your site visible to search engines and boost organic traffic by applying techniques to place your website higher in the search engine results.
Before going live, I’ll test your website on multiple screen sizes and platforms to ensure it will work across devices.
I’ll send you instructions on how to maintain your new WordPress website. We can also talk about having me maintain it for a monthly fee.
