What You Can Expect During the Web Design Process

Web Development Phases

  1. Discovery Phase:

The initial phase of the web design process is perhaps the most important phase as it sets the foundation for everything that follows. This phase is an opportunity to help us understand you as a person, your company, your business needs, what makes your brand different and your buyer personas/target market.

This phase will include:

  • Discovery document/brand questionnaire
  • Kick off meeting with stakeholders
  • Business analysis/domain research, including competitor and industry analysis
  • Review of your current assets, branding materials and other applicable collateral
  1. The Site Planning Phase

The second phase takes everything we’ve learned in the discovery phase and we begin to formulate a detailed plan for your new website. This phase will also lay out integrations, access needs for integrations, content and how they will be implemented on your website.

This phase will include:

  • Site Architecture – Your planned site map
  • Site integrations/access document

3. The Design Phase

This third phase is when all the information gathered thus far is compiled and we can begin the design of your site. Your site will be built on a private subdomain and serve as a location to view your site, updates and progress AFTER the initial design is completed.

This phase will include:

  • Creation of all visual content
  • Creation of your website’s design aspects

4. The Content Development Phase

The content development phase may coincide with the design phase and may be done by you as the customer or by Ideal Digital based on findings in phase 2. The content should be completed to coincide with the site map and consist of the relevant information needed for each page.

This phase includes:

  • Gather/assemble all relevant content
  • Interview/Research
  • Create any necessary copy for the site
  • Shoot or produce necessary site media (photos, videos, .PDF, etc)
  • Creation of metadata for your site – (keywords, descriptions, SEO tags, etc)

5. The Building Phase

This building phase is the phase in which your site comes to life, designs have been fully implemented and functionality is established. All of the interactive elements including mobile responsiveness, navigation, custom .CSS, API integrations, custom programming, third party applications and everything else comes together.

This phase includes:

  • Finalize site updates
  • Add all content elements
  • Create and test static/mobile design elements
  • Develop special features, integrations and interactivity
  • Optimize site elements for SEO

 

6. The QA Phase

The QA phase is when our team and your team should fully use the website as an end user to ensure that functionality meets your requirements as well as the needs of your customers. If changes need to be made, document these website changes and send via email so that we can ensure all changes are made specifically as requested for full transparency into the process.
