How the process works

Enquire

You have already taken the 1st step to having your own website, and that was to find a website designer. The next step is to let us know that you are interested in hiring us as the designing firm to design your company website. You can do this by simply completing the form below.

Proposal

One of the website designers will respond to your request with a detailed proposal via email. Our response will also include a process guide to help you through each phase of the website design process. If we are a good match for you and your budget, the website designer will continue to the next phase as soon as we receive either a 50% deposit or a full payment.

Briefing

The guide that was sent along with our proposal will include a list of tailored questions that the website designer will need you to answer. You may send an email with your feedback along with any other information or images to the corresponding website designer. Your answers will serve as a briefing that will guide us to create an efficient website design for you and your audience.

Wire framing and site mapping

A wire frame is a rough visual representation of a user interface that uses simple shapes to organize content. It allows the website designer to work quickly and generate great ideas for intuitive layouts that will complement the flow of your information. This phase does not require any precision, colour, images or even text. It does however require that the website designer has a good understanding of what type of information will be on the website and how much of it there will be. After the ideas have been filtered, the remaining interface is digitized into a more refined, medium fidelity wire frame along with a site map and sent to you for feedback and approval by the website designer. The next phase will be built on this frame work, and it is your responsibility to make sure that we covered everything.

Compositing

Now that we have a good frame work to build from, the website designer will continue to design the your website by transforming the approved wire frame into a piece of art. During the compositing phase, the website designer will use the real dimensions, colours, images and text to design the actual look of the website. When the composites are complete, the website designer will email you a presentation that will illustrate how each core function of the website will display. You have the liberty of up to 5 rounds of revisions before any additional costs will incur. Once again, it is important to make sure that you are 100% certain of the look and feel when you approve the website's design. What you approve in this phase, will be the website designer's mark to reach in the next phase.

Prototyping

The first step of this phase, is for the website designer to transform the approved composite to an interactive prototype. You will receive a link from the prototyping platform that will allow you to experience the mood, layout and navigation of the website's design. The platform also allows you to collaborate in real-time with the website designer and discuss any changes.

Finalizing

During this phase, the website designer will slice up your website design so it can be rebuilt for internet browsers. Every image and every letter is carefully put into its place as the website is shaped into a fully functional version of the approved prototype. The website designer will test the compatibility and responsiveness for popular internet browsers and for different devices like mobile, tablet, laptop, and desktop. When this is done, the website will be uploaded to a demo server, and the website designer will email you the link to test your new website. Since the look and feel of the website has already been approved, this phase mainly serves to test the functionality and the overall experience of the website.

Launch

As soon as you are ready to reveal the website to the world, all you need to do is inform the website designer and as soon as any outstanding amounts are settled, we will continue to the grand finale with you. If your domain is not registered yet at this stage, the website designer will first proceed to do so for you (if you are hosting with us) and create all the necessary email accounts. The website will then be uploaded to its new home and when you are ready, we will register your URL so Google and other search engines can start to index your website.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you based?

We are a website design company in Rietfontein, Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa. Even though we are based in South Africa, you can hire us as your website designers wherever you are. Technology today allows us to easily communicate audibly and visually with Platforms like Skype and Teamviewer.

How long does it take to design a professional website?

With website designing it's really difficult to say, because it depends on the complexity of the website. Wire framing takes about 1 day. Compositing can take anything between 1 to 5 days. Prototyping takes another day. Finalizing takes about 3 - 5 days. Launching takes about 1 day, so you are looking at a minimum time span of anything from 6 - 11 days to plan, create, test and upload a fairly basic site. Sometimes it may be quicker and other times it may take a bit longer. It also depends on the complexity of the briefing and how fluent the correspondence is.

Can I host the website you designed with my own hosting company?

Yes, you can, and we will even upload it to your server and setup the database and email accounts. If you would like to host with a different hosting company than with us, then please just inform the website designer in the briefing process. Please note that even though the website is uploaded to your server and you are a rightful owner of a Webbric license, all source code is still subject to standard and fair terms and conditions under the Webbric license.

How many composites does the website designer design?

By default, the website designer only designs one theme, one template, while using different screens to illustrate the full extent of the design. If you would like more than one design so you have some options to choose from, we would be more than happy to do so, but you will need to let us know so we can include the extra designs into your quotation.

Do you do SEO and Social Media Marketing?

Unfortunately we don't, because we prefer to focus on the quality of the design and the functionality of the website. We would prefer to give you a 100% effort in what we love to do, because this is why we are good at what we do. Because we understand how SEO works and its importance, we developed a SEO friendly CMS platform (Content Management System) that does most of the basics automatically. For your convenience, we can hire and manage an SEO specialist and/or a Social Media specialist for your website if your budget will allow us to do so. They will then be able to focus on these types of marketing techniques for you, because that's what they love to do and why they are good at it.
