Successful web design: a simple process.

As much as I would love to let you think I have a magic wand, the reality is that a successful web design project comes from proven processes honed over more than 15 years and many many projects.

I’ve been using logical, simple processes with clients to help them understand, document and reach their goals since 2005.

Stage 1 – Preperation

Gain a more detailed understanding of where you are, where you want to get to and how to get there. Save time, money and achieve quantifiable goals.

  • Research and discovery
  • Digital asset auditing
  • Review of existing website
  • Establishing and documenting goals
  • Agree and document strategy
  • Create a draft site/content map

Stage 2 – Design & Build

Construct or redesign your WordPress website for a specific purpose and audience. We will both know what success looks like. No surprises.

  • All work carried out on private staging area
  • Live working and feedback sessions
  • Custom WordPress theming
  • Custom content type creation
  • Ecommerce (WooCommerce)
  • Accessible and standards-compliant

Stage 3 – Maintenance

Shielding your investment, monitoring its performance and extending its lifespan. Maintenance is cheaper than disaster recovery.

  • Changelog analysis
  • Risk assessed software updating
  • GDPR data purge and form testing
  • Technical optimisation
