I’m Alice, the Senior Designer here at Pillory Barn.
With over seven years experience in the industry I’ve worked on a variety of web projects – from e-commerce sites to bespoke booking sites. Having a strong online presence is one of the most important things for your brand, and your strongest marketing tool. I’m lucky enough to work alongside a great team of designers and developers who have the tools and expertise to level up your website. Here’s how we do it…
Step 1: UX & Sitemap.
A workshop session to establish the requirements of the site from your audience’s first impression to the end goal. From this we create a detailed UX map, sitemap and User Journey flows to help establish the structure of your site and inform the design.
Step 2: Wireframes.
Outline foundation, structure and hierarchy of website elements. Begin to think about flow and design.
Step 3: Design.
Create a prototype design exploring the look and feel of the overall site. Include examples of responsiveness by creating mobile and desktop versions.
Step 4: Development.
Turn the prototype design into a functional website. Front-end coding for CMS and page types, navigation and special functionalities.
Step 5: Content.
Populate test-site with approved content including text, image and video. This is also the stage where SEO should be considered.
Step 6: Testing & Launch.
Final tweaks are made including validation, accessibility, UAT & cross-browser/platform testing. Final reviews & search engine submission.
Your site is live and on the internet for people to discover. Now get it noticed and keep it motoring. That includes considering how SEO can increase traffic to your site and keeping the CMS, plugins and security up to date!
