What Is Website Design and The Development Process

Blog Post Written By An AI Robot

Creating and launching a website can be an exciting process. Whether you're working on your first website or are just looking to improve upon your existing website, the design and development operation may seem daunting at first. However, if you use this step-by-step guide, you'll have an excellent starting point from which to create and develop the website of your dreams—or even improve upon your existing site!

1) Planning

A critical first step in any project is planning. We'll need to plan out what we want our site to do, how we're going to build it, who will be responsible for various tasks, what code we'll use, etc. Planning is essential for websites because there are so many little decisions that add up to a lot of work in the end: what color scheme are we using? How should assets (like CSS files) be named? Where do we keep these assets? Who is going to maintain the integrations after launch? In the consultation stage, we handle all of this to ensure we acquire every desire and scope the project properly.

2) Build

When building a project, you have to consider what is possible and what isn't. Anything is possible with web design, but budget can affect what the final product comes out as. You need to know your goals for your website before development begins to stay on track. Once that's set, you need initial blueprints to remain consistent through the development and delivery of your site. This ensures quality code even if things change during development or when the website is delivered at launch.

3) Launch

Launching a website is the most exciting time, in my opinion, as many months of work come together. As we move through each phase, there are usually new tasks and new ideas that pop up or need to be changed based on feedback or priorities. It's not uncommon for this to happen, and we ensure total satisfaction by making sure you're 100% happy with your website before we end the development/launch phases.

4) Maintain

The last step with operating and owning a website is maintaining the website you just put so much time and effort in!   There are many elements to keep up-to-date on your website, including: search engine optimization, social media management, and content updates. Maintaining your website will ensure that all of your hard work has not gone to waste.
