For a website to be effective and aesthetically pleasing, the creation process must begin with proper web design. Web design is what sets your site apart from your competitor’s out-of -the-box template site. At ITI, creativity is at the heart of everything we do, but nowhere is it more evident than in the visual impact of the websites we design. Architecture, functionality, and proper SEO practices are all extremely important to a successful website; however, all is in vain if the website appears ugly or unprofessional. With the internet becoming increasingly competitive, it’s critical that your website’s first impression be a good one – it’s the only one you’ll get!
We approach each website design project with the same 5 step process:
GOALS AND PROJECT ASSESSMENT
We meet with you to determine what your needs are, and what you want your website to achieve. With that information, we’ll work with you to establish the features and pages required for the website, and the content and information we’ll need to begin the process.
RESEARCH AND DESIGN
We’ll conduct research within your industry, making determinations on important design elements to include, and looking for ways to you gain a competitive edge among your competition. We conclude this phase by creating a design mockup of the website, which will serve as our visual guide when adjusting color and layout, creating pages, and adding content.
During this step is when text and image content is added, and the website begins to take shape. This phase makes up the majority of the project time, but is expedited if your content is supplied beforehand.
STYLING AND TESTING
Once all of the content is in place, work begins on the website’s visual styling. This ensures that the website looks great and functions correctly across all devices, from desktops to smartphones. Following the styling phase, the website is rigorously tested to resolve undetected issues and make sure the site works properly.
FINAL REVIEW AND PUBLISHING
During this phase, you are given the opportunity to look over the site and request any last changes you might have. Once you’re satisfied with the site and have given your approval, the website will be published and made live.
The WordPress development platform is popular worldwide because it’s easy to use, highly supported by developers, and flexible enough to create any type of website, from personal portfolios to business and ecommerce. As of 2019, over 24 Million websites have been developed using the WordPress platform, and the number of active installations is growing each year.
WordPress is the only development platform with an expansive network of developers and support, robust security and SEO features, and a high degree of customization to create the exact website you want. Out-of-the-box solutions like Wix or Squarespace offer quick and attractive ways to create a website, but customers are often left frustrated at those platform’s inability to grow and expand alongside their business. With WordPress’ developer and support networks, your website is only limited by your imagination.
