Steps to our Chicago Web Design Process
The following are the high-level steps in our web design process, involving many people on our team who are focused on gathering the best insights for your needs, determining the ways that your audience wants to be engaged with, and packaging it all into an intuitive, attractive, and effective website.
Before the first wireframe is mocked up, before a word of copy is written, and before even a general idea of how we want to execute your Chicago website design, we will go through a rigorous analysis phase in order to understand your customers, their buying habits, their online behavior, and what the market looks like in terms of competition, traffic, and more. Once we have done a deep-dive into all of the most important aspects of your online presence, we will take this information into a series of brainstorming sessions in order to start to develop a winning strategy.
During this phase, your input will be valuable to help us contextualize your customers, the values that they have, and why you are the right business to help solve their problems or meet their needs. Chicago web design goes well beyond making a pretty site: it takes a lot of research to get it right.
It can be easy to want to dive headfirst into site design without considering the overall strategy of our execution, such as goals like traffic, conversions, and more. We will take the time needed in order to customize a strategy designed to provide you with the metrics and engagement that you expect. We will identify a variety of conversion types, such as signing up for a newsletter, scheduling a call, or purchasing a product, and then begin to develop “funnels” intended to help your visitors along their journey and finally take the action they desire.
Once we have developed a strategy with clear, actionable targets and goals, then we will be able to move forward with the design phase of our project.
User experience design (UX) and user interface design (UI) are two important design principles that overlap but are uniquely different and important. A website’s UX is the type of experience that your use has when they are on your website. Are you looking for an entertaining website or a simple and informative one? We will use our analysis, as well as your in-depth understanding of your customers’ habits, to determine an appropriate and effective experience for visitors.
User interface design worries less about the “mood” of your site and more about the actual interface that a user must navigate once they have arrived on your page. If your target conversions are for a user to contact you for an appointment, then it is important that the UI is designed in a way that allows for simple contact. If you have multiple target conversions (which is common), then each funnel will need to be considered individually.
Once we have laid out the wireframes and nailed down the UX/UI of your site, we will then go into the approval phase where you have final approval of which design elements are used and which are replaced. As you can see by just the few steps listed above, there is a lot that goes into designing an effective site. However, your approval is one of the most important pieces of the entire project.
