The Discovery Phase On The Project Scope

  • Who is going to be using the website?
  • What is the aim of the website?
  • What words or phrases do you want the website to be found for?
  • What do you hope your customers will get from the website?
  • Are there competitors that the website has to compete with?

Your website will have built-in SEO prior to launching.

We do speed optimisation on your site which is a ranking signal with Google. We then test the results in GTmetrix the recognised resource for site performance testing. It’s also important for mobile users and voice search.

"Our aim is to make the whole process frictionless and a pleasant experience for our clients. You will find that we don't need too much direction in knowing how to bring your website to launch with the most effective strategy for your industry type. We communicate with clients in a common language that will resonate and be easily understood and without too much technical jardon."

Discovery Phase

At the start we look to find out what the goals of the website are, who the target market is? and what content is needed to support this.

The discovery phase works both ways it gives us the web development agency the information from the client on the aims of the site, competition, digital marketing and other aspects. The discovery phase also gives the client insights into our process. We tend to avoid using too much technical jargon whenever possible and instead look to spell out the results in a language that is conducive for understanding and continued discussion back and forth. The whole aim is to get clarity for both sides on the expectations of the project and overall scope.

WordPress Redesign

Here is a step by step process on how we approach an existing WordPress website that is getting a complete redesign.

The first step is to back up the existing WordPress site, this includes backing up the database and the site files. In other cases, this may not be necessary if the old site has no importance in terms of traffic and ranking. In this case, we will simply take appropriate content from the front end to use as a reference for the new platform. For backing up a website database we request access to the PHP MyAdmin panel. Most hosting providers have this utility in relation to WordPress.

The second step we take is to look at the cached URLs of the existing site and take a record of these. The URLs can be assessed for rank value and those that are significant are kept in place on the new site provided there is no domain name change.

A third step can be a transfer of hosting over to a better host provider. In cases where the current hosting provider of a WordPress site is holding back on the site performance and future functions than a transfer are initiated on the recommendation. We can guide clients on how this process. Generally, this is a straight forward affair and time-wise can take a day or two for a.ie domain and typically five days for a .com to transfer over.

Creative Page Layout

Designing For Mobile, Tablet & Desktop

One of our strengths is that we focus equal attention to mobile and tablet design as we do for desktop.

We have exacting standards when it comes to mobile display. It’s not just good enough to be mobile friendly anymore, a site needs to maximise its effectiveness for small screens.

Aspects such as how visuals display on mobile are important. For example, we look to use pairs of images for desktop display so that they fill the screen area. These images can be 1000px wide and 1100px in height, so together they work well on the desktop to fill the screen and create impact while adding more visual value to the section topic.  So when the images are displayed on mobile they get stacked and because of the dimensions, most of the screen area displays the image. The result is a higher impact visually on a smaller screen. This is just one aspect of many we pay close attention to in the responsive design process.

Designing For Mobile Devices

WordPress Commerce

Business who need to sell online without the need for a dedicated full featured e-commerce platform such as Shopify or Magento can use instead the cart and checkout functionality that WordPress supports.

There are numerous advantages to adding e-commerce functionality to a WordPress site especially when the platform already exists. It can save time and possibly reduce costs on getting a dedicated e-commerce site. While we will always advocate using platforms such as Shopify for solely specific online selling, there is scope for using WordPress to sell online. We will be adding more information on this in the near future update.

Wire Frames

Wireframes are a great way to simply map out how the site will work, what expected pathways the user will go along and how the page content is sectioned up in line with user expectations.

Mapping out the site pages with wireframes allows us to communicate the site architecture to the client that provides clarity without any design elements acting to distract from the expected navigation pathways.
