1- Collecting Information

The first step for any successful website design and development is collecting information such as:
What are the goals of the website? Who is the audience? Who is in charge of content, images, copyright?

2- Planning

The next step is planning. Planning is the main step before starting the designing of the website which includes:
Final Analysis of collected information, project chart, creating a sitemap for all the pages and their relationship, define type software, and database.

3- Design

The design starts with following the planning information and building the wireframe and design elements. Then we create a wireframe and mockup. After our clients review and approve the website, we jump to the next step.

4- Development

At the development stage, the program coding starts. After defining the framework, testing, and analysis the website, the content will be added. After final testing for functionality and making sure the link works, the testing site is ready for pre-launch.

5- Website Launch

Run final testing across browsers, upload the website to a live server, and check for functionality again.

6- After Launch

At this point, the website should have full functionality and all documentation should be available. This is the final step of the project.


Many clients require maintenance for their website which includes hosting and adding content or images.

Website Design Tips:

Multi-Device Layouts

In the modern day and age, every successful business needs a good company website to help attract and inform clients. Maintaining a clear web presence can be hugely important. Having an attractive and functional website design can go a long way towards helping a company achieve this. If your company website design is not up to scratch, you should consider redesigning the website to make it better. Designing a new website may not be a complicated process if you follow these tips:

Do not make your website design overly complicated. Although it may be tempting to try to add lots of crazy features, if you are a small business owner, many of the people who are visiting your website will want to find out clear and concise information; they do not want to spend a long time searching for it. Quirky features may go out of fashion. While big businesses can afford to regularly redesign their website to keep it up-to-date, smaller businesses cannot afford to constantly redesign their websites. A clean, simple design is timeless.

Every section of your website should be clearly labeled and the website design should be void of circular links. Many web users find it very frustrating to be led round and round in circles on a website. Clearly labeled sections (such as “rates” “contact us” “about us” and “products”) will help website users find out what they need to know.

Make sure that all of your contact details are easy to find and include links to any social media profiles that you have, such as Twitter and Facebook. These will help your customers or fans connect with you, and will help you increase your web presence even more. Make sure that all email addresses and phone numbers are up to date because you will lose business if clients cannot get in contact with you.

If you are planning on using any bright and eye-catching colors in the website design, make sure that any text which is written on the website is clearly visible. Website users do not want to strain their eyes attempting to read the information which they are attempting to find out.

Although it will be slightly more expensive to make, consider creating a slimline version of the website as well, especially for people who are using the site on mobile browsers. As more and more people are surfing the internet on mobile phones and handheld tablets, websites need to be adapted to make them as easy as possible for mobile users to visit.

When your new website design is complete, get a website usability expert that can analyze your website to see whether it is stylish and functional. A website usability expert will be able to offer you impartial advice on whether your website is appropriate for use by the general public. It is hard for someone who is not impartial to be able to do this because they will already know how the website is supposed to work.
