The Website Design Process
Creating a website is a multistage process. We believe the more you understand about these stages the smoother the process will go and the happier you will be with our service.
Below is the step by step guide to creating a web site for your business.
1) We have an
agreement? Let's start designing!
You agree, JK Digital Solutions agrees, paperwork is signed and received by us. We then start the actual design process. We prefer to meet you face to face to discuss your design requirements, as this is the most important step of the web design process. We will discuss every last detail of your needs from the size and style of the site to what you would like your domain name to be, eg. www.yourcompany.com.
To ensure your domain is not lost to someone else
during the design process we will register it at this
stage too. If you do not understand the smallest of
points at this stage PLEASE ASK FOR CLARIFICATION! Miscommunication
and false expectations do NOT move the design process
forward in a productive manner. At ANY time please contact
JK Digital Solutions about any concerns, questions or
comments you have about your project. We are only too
happy to help.
2) Collecting Your Materials
Text, print, copy, brochures, products, pictures, product weight & cost... we need it ALL to get your site going. The more you provide us with the better.
3) Mockup Sites
and Sample Layouts
The fun part - JK Digital Solutions puts together a mock web site made from your specification, for your company to look over and discuss. At this point we're trying to narrow down exactly what you're looking for in terms of design and layout. Your feedback is essential in the Web design process and is welcomed at any time.
4) Site Architecture
Navigation is one of the most important parts of your site. Site architecture is established at this point to insure your visitors don't get lost on your site. We use text links, graphic menus and buttons with rollovers to accomplish this.
5) Working with
Resizing photos, photo optimization, color sampling (for people who want to match a corporate color to their site design), product weight & pictures and similar tasks are all done during this phase of the Web design process.
Project Design / Look & Feel
Based on your feedback from the mockup site(s) a design is established and used for your Web site.
Layout Of Site
Based on your feedback from the mock-up site(s) a layout is established and is applied to your Web site.
8) Home Page
Starting with your home page, the main page, we start building your Web site. After this part is completed and approved we move on.
9) Sub Pages
The sub-pages (based upon layout and design from 7, 8 & 9) are now worked on until completion.
10) Web Site
Completion and Debugging
JK Digital Solutions is part of a community of over 250 professional Web designers from around the world who test each others sites. All these designers have different browsers, computers and connections - the only way to test your site for optimal performance is to have a wide sample of testers with various set ups.
11) Site goes
Your site is published for the world to see! You can now start advertising your site, telling friends, business acquaintances and publish print material.
12) Search Engine Submission
JK Digital Solutions submits your site to search engines. Ensuring your site can be found on search engines such as Google and Yahoo means a steady flow of traffic will be directed towards your site and increase the awareness of your business.
Throughout all these stages we'll be with you every step of the way.
