WEB DESIGN PROCESS
We aim to understand your business by researching your business and market to give us a better understanding of what you’re all about and what your customers want. Our web designer carries out research on your products, services, details of your company along with your local area in which you are targeting your services. We research your competitors, what they have done well and what areas might need improvement. Further to this, we will learn who your target audience are, how they might better find you online, what search words they use to find what they are looking for then create a strategic plan for your website design.
Wireframing is an important part of web design process. Wireframes demonstrate the website structure, hierarchy and content layout of a website and how the information on a website will flow through its pages. Wireframe design is a collaborative process enabling clients & our web designer to step back and consider the bigger picture before adding colours, text, images and illustrations. Wireframes let you review prototypes earlier in the website design process, provide feedback, test ideas and preserve time for the web design phase and fine-tuning.
Deciding which colours will work best for your WordPress website design is an important decision, one that can make or break the website’s user experience. The right colour palette can set the tone and mood of your website. It can, literally, transform a website from boring to vibrant and engaging. The wrong colour palette however could drive users away by conveying the wrong message or giving off a bad user experience. Our web designer will create colour palette suited to your business or use an existing brand style guide.
The reason that typeface and font choice is so important for your brand or company is that you want your fonts to evoke positive emotions and provide easy readability at the same time. Choosing a font that has a certain feel may not fit with your industry if it’s too casual or too modern. When you look at financial advising, you want your brand to be taken seriously by the consumer. Therefore, your font choice should reflect this sentiment. We select the ideal font combinations for your web design or we can use an existing brand style guide.
05. Images & Video
Photographs on a website can tell a story and can be used to illustrate a point. They give people an idea of what the product is like and the benefit they may gain from using that product or service. Images such as these also help people visualise an item, which means they’re more likely to go ahead and buy it. People respond emotionally to images on your site, which makes them important components of an effective website. Images can be sourced from a photographer or Adobe Stock or similar image library chosen by our WordPress web designer. Speak to a web designer at our London office to discuss your project further.
06. Illustrations & Icons
Web Illustration can be anything from simple cartoons reminiscent of the olden days, the big cowboy eared mouse, or even something more complex, like a series of icons representing your products or services. The advantage of using illustration in your web design is that you have a way of connecting with your customers on a much more personal level. We can create illustrations or our web designers can customise illustrations and icons from Adobe Stock or similar illustration libraries.
07. Responsive Design
As smartphones and tablets become more prevalent, web designers and developers face a new challenge: designing for all screen sizes. Responsive web design is the solution to that problem. It’s the practice of building a website that is flexible and can fit into any screen size without losing content or layout clarity. Also known as mobile-first development, responsive design aims to serve a single website to users with different devices, platforms and browsers. We design all websites using Adobe XD to create and present responsive website designs that are uploaded to an website for review and feedback.
01. Theme & Plugin Selection
The WordPress theme is selected and custom developed to fit the functionality requirements of the website design files.WP theme selection will differ from a recruitment or bookings websites depending upon the various other functionalities it comes with. We select the plugins to suit your website needs. We tend to use the most popular plugins available to ensure compatibility and future updates and support.
02. WordPress Development
Our developer integrates the web design files in to the selected WordPress theme along with all required plugins. Elementor Pro is a fast and very flexible page builder that works seamlessly with the WordPress. We use this to setup page and post templates which are configured to work responsively on mobile, tablet and desktop computers. External applications are integrated and tested to ensure compatibility with all installed plugins. We have a high focus on code quality, cross browser testing and data security.
03. Content Population
Content is the most important part of every website. We ensure text and images are populated in posts, pages, image galleries and WooCommerce products efficiently. For websites with a significant amount of content such as news sites, we use an application to automatically populate the website to ensure consistency and to save time. Our WordPress developers can also import content from another website using our advanced content migration tools.
04. Quality Assurance Testing
Our Quality Assurance Testing is the final protocol we follow to ensure the best results with your website before launch. We know how important it is to have a great user experience which is why we choose to run a visual check for any design errors, missing content, correct colours and fonts used, images and icons sized correctly and cross browser tests to ensure the website displays correctly on all devices. We run a set of performance tests on all new websites to ensure they run at optimal speed. We employ a number of best practices throughout the planning and development stages which dramatically improve performance across multiple devices, browser types, and connection speeds.

Security is of utmost importance to our clients so we ensure website installations are secured on multiple levels. Our WordPress developers use enterprise-level hosting from WP Engine which is universally considered the best hosting for WordPress.
WP Engine detects threats and blocks attacks to your website and can be secured with multi-factor password authentication requiring an administrators mobile phone to gain access to your files.
We integrate your website with Cloudflare DNS to provide DDoS mitigation, Bot management and provide further performance and security enhancements.
Our developers configure your website to work with advanced caching and a CDN to significantly reduce web page loading times.
WPEngine web hosting is based in London with a CDN that has several global server locations to deliver assets faster as they are closer to your international website visitors. Images, CSS and JS files benefit from the performance enhancements due to the CDN reducing your web page loading speed and increasing your Google PageSpeed score.
All hosting we provide includes an SSL certificate. This ensures data transfer is encrypted between your WordPress website and your website visitors.
Google recommends all websites use an SSL certificate which will improve your website’s rank on Google.
We can import an existing SSL certificate or use a specific SSL certificate if required for a higher level of security, ideal for WooCommerce websites.
Your hosting is automatically backed-up daily with copies retained for at least 30 days.
On demand backups of your website can be made which are useful if you need to make updates to plugins or add new functionality.
Previous website backups can be restored within minutes from within the WPEngine dashboard.
A staging and development server is also available which also provide daily backups.
Our developer optimises your websites to ensure only the required JS and CSS files are loaded per page.
Unused files are often automatically added by WordPress plugins and themes causing web page bloat and can significantly slow down your website.
We identify those redundant files and prevent them from loading throughout the site.
Code is further optimised by minifying and combining files which enhances loading times further.
Images make up the majority of a web page size and have the biggest impact on page loading times.
We created several images sizes to ensure the correct size is derived to the device it is being viewed. This allows for smaller image file sizes to be delivered which can greatly speed up your website and reduce data usage.
Images are also compressed with no visible loss of quality which can reduce file sizes by 50% or more.
