Web Design: How We Do It


Production Of Brief: An initial meeting is used to define the requirements of the project and to produce a brief.
Research: We research your business requirements, come up with ideas, identify competitors and so on…
Time scale Estimates: Based upon the brief, we estimate the time involved to complete the project. This includes a full cost proposal, project plan and site plan.


Information Architecture: How the website will navigate and how the information on the website will be organised is decided upon. This is based on the website plan outlined in the previous stage.
Visual Design: A mock up for the look and feel of the site is produced. This design is then refined in an iterative process until the final design is agreed upon.


Website Production: The final design is then built based upon the mock ups from the previous stage.
Website Development: All programming and development work is done and integrated with the front end design of the website. Clients have access to the web development server at all times.
Ongoing Testing: The work is constantly tested as part of the web development process.


Final Testing: Once the website is complete, it is rigorously tested and any bugs are ironed out.
Website Launch: The final website is uploaded to the live web server and launched.
Support: Plainsail Solutions provides an online support and website maintenance solution.
Marketing: Any agreed online marketing activities are executed.
