I'd Like a Website, so what happens now?
Well, the first step is to discuss
exactly what the purpose of your website will be, its ‘raison d’être’ if you like. If you run a business, it would be handy to know a little background about it, what you do and who your clients are. This gives us an idea of who will be looking at your website, what they expect to see, and how they are going to arrive there. You may already have a fairly good idea of how you want your website to look; it may be that you have a logo or theme you wish to be prevalent throughout the site. In this case, the more material and vivid descriptions you can provide the better.
Once we have an idea of your aims, we normally produce a series of mock-up designs and wireframes where appropriate, modifying and refining them according to your feedback. When you are happy with the looks and proposed functionality, we begin work on the nitty-gritty, developing the code for your site in standards-compliant XHTML and CSS, integrating it with any content management system etc. as necessary. The templates will be uploaded regularly, so you can see your website at each stage of development.
