Web design focuses on two key areas: User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX). UI design refers to the visual elements and interactive components of a website (the pretty bits.) UX design is the overall experience a user has while interacting with a site. I aim for high-quality designs that are accessible to all users.
Key stages of web design
My website design process is made up of four key areas. Planning: - gather information on your business - understand how you currently advertise your service (what is or isn't working) - define the key goals for the website project - understand who your target audience is - setting out a timeline for the key milestones of the project
Wireframing: - planing out the basic blueprint of a website - focuses on structure and basic layout
Visual design: - using Figma (web design software) to transform wireframes into interactive designs - designing for the key breakpoints of a website (desktop, mobile and tablet) - planning spaces for additional content (text, icons and images)
Additional content creation: - support in finding images, improving written content and designing icons - adding the additional content will finalise the designs
A common question I have is: what if I am not happy with some of the design choices? Hopefully this will not happen, you will work with me from the beginning and be regularly updated on the design process. Any things you don’t like can be flagged and changed. I can also work on multiple designs until you find one that fits.
How long does web design take?
The website design process can take between 5 working days up to a few weeks, depending on the size and complexity of a project. Contact me to get a more accurate time-frame for your website.
