Going online

Before we even begin to development your website, we need to establish exactly what your requirements are. A design brief is an understanding between a client and designer, rather than a formal document between two parties. We do a lot of research before starting a website and do require as much input from you as possible. The more detailed the brief you give me, the better chance of fulfilling its requirements. We can arrange a meeting, but if that is not possible, we can easily communicate by phone, Skype and email.

The preparation

To prepare for our chat, we will ask you a few things:

  • Whether you have a domain name or website already;
  • The goal behind the site;
  • To send any material you may have: logos; images; textual content;
  • To send any links to web sites that you like and why you like them;
  • What budget you have in mind;
  • Whether you wish to be able to update the site yourself.

All of these are just to give us some idea of what you require.

The process

When we have a better idea of what we are trying to achieve. We will send you a written proposal in PDF format outlining what the site will consist of, an estimated price and a sitemap of the structure of the site. Depending on the budget, we will send you 2 / 3 graphical layouts of the design and how the site will look. When you have chosen a design, we will start to build the site.

The site build

Once the web site home page is built and tested it in various browsers, we'll upload it to the Digitalplot web site for you to take a look at. We'll discuss any minor changes and then sign off the website template. we'll then ask you for the content for your web site (text and images).

The final result

When you're happy with the test website, we'll upload all the website files to the web space that the domain name sees and your web site will be finally online.

Throughout the process, we'll guide you and when the process has ended, be there to offer advice and suggestions.

Please call us on 0208 749 9229/07921 142084 or email at annie@digitalplot.co.uk if you have any queries or would like to set a date for your free consultation.

We look forward to working with you and helping your web site become everything you hope it to be.
