How I make websites
Every web project is different and has its own unique set of requirements and objectives. I try my best to tailor the design process to suit the project’s individual needs. Often, my websites undergoes a creation process similar to the following pattern:
We could start by discussing your needs, so that I can get a picture of what kind of website you’re looking for. Once we have established that, we can lay out an overall idea for the site, and look at the practical stuff, like time schedules, domain name, prices and deadlines.
The Design Phase
Next, I’ll turn to my digital drawing board, starting researching and designing. Soon after, I’ll typically provide you with a design proposition - a mock-up that represents an idea of how the site could look like. We’ll use this to discuss if the project is heading in the right direction, or if something has to be tweaked at this stage.
The Coding Phase
When the look, contents and functions of the site are well defined, I’ll start coding to make it a working, interactive and functionable site for the web. Among other things, this phase includes:
- making the site responsive, i.e optimize it for use on both desktop, tablets and smartphones
- making it work well in all modern browsers
- optimizing it for search engines (SEO)
- integrating it with Wordpress as content management system
The Handover Phase
At last, the final website will be uploaded to your chosen domain. You’ll be handed over the passwords you need and instructions on how to easily update and maintain the site yourself. Thanks to the Wordpress CMS, you’ll be able to do that without knowing anything about web coding. Still, if you need more guidance, or help maintaining the site, we can figure out a plan for that, too.
That's roughly it! Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
