The process of web design

What do we cover under website / web design. Main groups of steps.

Planning and research

Every project can be different from another, and every project must be explored in details before making any further steps. Collecting content and information, Competition research, etc. are some of steps that we cover at the beginning of work.

Schemes, drafts and mockups

Great web design starts with graphical design and multiple combinations and variotions of theme, colors, fonts, forms, images, etc. It is important to define every aspect of design at this level so that web development goes smooth.

Web development

Structuring and organizing web pages, filling in content and styling. This is moment where all drafts and mockups are converted to well structured code. First thing here is responsive web design so that website can adopt to different devices and screen resolutions.

Testing and more testing

Testing and debuging, making everything perfect. After graphics and web design are finished and we have so called "version 1" done, we have to make sure that everything works as expected and that means to test browser support, all device types , etc.

Support

When project is finished and up and running, only one thing remains and that is of course - support. Whether you've noticed some error or you need help in updating the content of the website, we are at your disposal
