London Web Design Process
Top uses user centred development process, that means client involvement in the website design process is of paramount importance, however the way we work with our clients allows them to be involved as little or as much as they choose, depending on their own level of expertise and of course time restrictions.
Stage1: Research and Introduction
We are interested in thepeople we do business with. Therefore, the first step is to carry out a research about the company and give a no-obligation suggestions to clients on how they can design or improve their websites.
Stage 1: Analysis
If the client is happy with the ideas, a meeting between London Top Web Design and the client is arranged for an initial discussion and brainstorming about the website design, functionality, budget and timing requirements. This can be done in person or through email and telephone.
Stage 2: Proposal
The proposal is compiled by London Top Web Design, after collating the full client brief, which details web and graphic design ideas, amount of pages, self updateable sections, the final price, and the production processes required to achieve the end result, for large organizations/projects, we carry out risk assesment, develop a project plan, asses skillls and tools requirements. We liaise with our website designers to document the key phases of the project, timing and invoice plans through to completion.
Stage 3: Contract Signing
Once the client is satisfied with the London Top final proposal, a contract is signed to commence with website design.
Stage 4: Research and Analysis
Once a contract has been signed, London Top Research/Usability Team embark on thorough research and analysis, we benchmark (compare your results to your competitors), we research on your industry to find more information about your audience and targeted market. London Top Research and Usability Team then presents the information to the client in charts and diagrams before it is implemented. This will ensure that the website's architect is strong and is scalable.
Stage 5: Design and Development
London Top Designer and Developers get to work, several designs are developed, the client is allowed to choose, the concept is further developed ready for coding.
London Top is different unlike many design companies, London Top Web Design uses a combination of software engineers and graphics designers. Therefore depending on the kind of project we are dealing with; we choose a methodology (framework) that will be centredon the user or customer in this case
Some of the methodologies we use are; Feature Driven Development framework and SSADM. Out of these methodologies, we have developed our own methodology called G2G Methodology which is flexible and allows us develop application rapidly.
We then design test to allow us to thoroughly test a website. We do;
• Functionality Testing.Stage 7
This has to do with functionality of the system. Is the website doing what it was meant to do?
• Usability Testing
We have a group of people ranging from basic users who know nothing about information technology to advanced users who know all the intricacies of the web and computing to test the website. We note down their findings, criticisms and suggestions and we use these results to improve the system
The website is uploaded into the remote server so that people can view it online
Future Website Maintenance
You will have a password protected area so you can have the flexibility to modify the website text and images easily and rapidly yourself without any programming skills whatsoever. If you prefer our own professional website designers to make the changes
While developing the website, London Top Web Design follows a rigorous check list to ensure the website developed conforms with World Wide Web Consortium (WWWC).
