Our Three Step
Process for Web Design
Get to know you! - Where are your website and company now?
Most Boston web design companies try to avoid meeting with you. We believe this approach is a mistake because you are the decision makers, and your input is critical to the success of your web project. A meeting should aim to further the web design company’s knowledge of your goals, brand, and how you wish to portray yourself to your website visitors. Some of the most important things we consider include who your potential customers are, as well as who your competition in the field is. We want to create a website that will outshine your competitors and bring in new business. This study of your company and industry helps select appropriate colors, imagery, and symbols that will make the most significant impact on your target market. Since meeting with and getting to know you are critical steps for a successful relationship, we make it our top priority.
Document your goals and the business needs of your website.
Gathering requirements up front saves everyone time and money and improves quality. We are committed to making sure your final solution meets all of your needs. By documenting your needs before we start, we can meet all your needs, instead of retrofitting missed requirements into the solution. We will work with you to document business requirements and ensure a mutual understanding before the coding phase begins. Therefore, our approach to website development and design aims to confirm our understanding of your objectives and streamlines development by minimizing change orders.
Create your website - On Time and Budget
Once we have clearly outlined what your company aims to achieve through our website development and design services, we will get to work! The best thing you, as a client, can do is to make sure you make your expectations clear to us early on. That way, your project will be completed quickly, on budget and produce a result we are sure you’ll be thrilled with!
Reach the widest audience in the most accessible way
Our team uses responsive web design techniques and standards.
Responsive web design is the creation of dynamic websites optimized for all internet-enabled devices, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Whatever device you are using, a responsive web site will adapt for a fantastic user experience. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about excessive zooming, panning, and frustrated users leaving your website from a bad experience.
It can be a challenge to create a different design for all devices. There was a time when companies needed two websites for their businesses: one for desktops and one for mobile devices. Now, this is considered an unacceptable practice. Today, users have a variety of devices to choose from since the use of mobile technology has grown exponentially. Complicating things further, computer displays are typically in landscape orientation, while mobile devices can be rotated to show websites in both landscape and portrait orientations. This means that designers and developers have to design for those differences. In this scenario, a responsive web design approach becomes the most practical.
Industry Standards and Accessibility
Our website designs use Cascading Style Sheets and design standards based on W3C standards.
W3C develops specifications, guidelines, software, and tools to lead the Web to its full potential.
We strive to design websites and web-based applications that are accessible. “Accessible” means that the websites we design will be available to a wide range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, as well as those with learning difficulties, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech difficulties, and others. To learn more about W3C, visit https://w3.org.
It is not always affordable to make a small business website accessible. However, when budgets allow, we follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0 and 2.1) published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
Strategic Partners for Accessibility Web Design
Boston Web Designers understands that working with the right strategic partner can allow us to focus our time, attention, and resources on our core competencies allowing us to exceed your expectations. Accessibility testing is one of those areas that require expertise and specialized technology. For this reason, we work with a strategic partner to assist with accessibility testing and certification for your website.
Insights from our Blog
Is Boston Web Designers the right web design firm for you?
Boston Web Designers is the best at what we do as we favor a team-based approach. Our team consists of both graphic designers, as well as front design professionals. Because people with both front design and graphic design skills are difficult to find, you should be wary if your website designer is working alone. For this reason, you need a team of designers working together who will make sure the job gets done right.
Responsive Graphic Designers
Grid-based layouts are a crucial component of great Responsive Web Site Design. A good graphic designer should be able to create grid base graphic design layouts. Most websites can easily be broken down into rectangles like headers, sidebars, and footers. These are the key building blocks for a responsive website. Thus, it will be imperative that you hire a graphic designer who knows how to work with a grid-based approach to design.
Responsive Front End Developers
After completing the graphic design for your website, you will need to consult with a programmer and a front end designer who can create responsive design layouts. Ideally, you will want them to create a responsive layout that conforms to an individual user’s screen size. In other words, make your layout and content scaled to fit as much screen real estate as possible. Once completed, you can use this responsive design checker to see if your website is responsive before you make final payment and launch your site to the world.
Once you find a good web design firm, ask them for examples of responsive websites they have created.
