WEBSITES & APPS
Creative web design to stand out and
cut through the noise
User stories are a great way of documenting the functionality required by a website. They can be written from both the user and admin’s perspective so that both Yellowball and our clients have clarity on the elements which make up the website. We supply our clients with a core set of user stories and help them tailor/expand on these so that the project can be mapped out. These can then act as parameters for the designers, a roadmap for Agile project management and a project agreement.
Some websites require wireframing because of the complexity of the user flows or to demonstrate how particular elements would interact when clicked on. When wireframing websites we are able to give our clients a top level preview of the website’s layout and structure which can provide clarification prior to full designs being created.
The content of a website can have a significant impact on how it appears visually. As such, we always advise that designers work with signed off content (including images or video) to avoid any unexpected issues during the project. However, we appreciate that content is often hard to produce so we have in house wordsmiths and professional photographers that can help you out!
The design of the homepage will often dictate the design style used throughout the website. Menu structures and the method through which we display the most important content on the homepage also act as style sign off for the rest of the website, in turn providing regular checkpoints throughout the project. This is the first time you will see a full page design and is an exciting time!
Once the homepage design has been signed off our designers will then expertly craft the inner pages of the site. All of our websites are responsive as standard. Internet usage on mobile devices now accounts for more than 50% of total usage, meaning that the likelihood is your customers are using their mobiles to look at your website! Our designers and project managers will manage your expectations in regards to which designs will be most applicable to mobile and also what to avoid. It’s all part of the service.
Our web design process has been specifically created so that the right questions are asked at the right time in order to deliver a product that you are delighted with. Before we have even started to design anything we conduct thorough research, this can take the form of competitor and industry research and can also include questioning the client in regards to likes and dislikes of the current website, desired style of the website, intended functionality, preferred colours and target market.
User Acceptance Testing (UAT) or bug checking is the final stage prior to go live. This is where we take out the magnifying glass and inspect every element of the website and check every piece of functionality against the website scope so that we are both 100% confident the website will be a hit. The UAT process is managed in the same way as the whole process, with full clarity on requirements and development milestones.
This is the exciting part! All of the hard work comes to fruition when the website is sent live; the servers are ready, the domain settings have been adjusted and now all you have to do is wait for your brand new site. We understand that servers, domains and files can be confusing so we make sure that all of this has been organised well in advance of the big day.
Featuring ultra clean UX/UI and a high end luxury design, the website makes great use of the stunning imagery of Alice Lily Interiors’ partners and suppliers.
