Our Website Design Process

We utilise Design Thinking to create user-centric websites.

Here’s a brief rundown of what our website design process entails. 

We use a version of Stanford Design Schools’ famous Design Thinking process. The d.school process includes 5 stages Empathise, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test.

Empathise

Here we seek to understand;

  • Who your users are;
  • What they need to do on your site;
  • If you even need a website at all;
  • What motivates them to take action;
  • Your brand.

Define

  • We clearly and succinctly define the problems to be solved;
  • We take an inventory of your content;
  • Look at your market and competitors;
  • Uncover any functional requirements or integrations required;
  • Clarify your business goals for the website.

Ideate

  • Armed with the knowledge gleaned from the steps above, we start to create ideas.
  • Presenting this to you in the form of a site strategy and a design concept

Prototype 

  • Prototyping takes a number of different forms, at its most simple it is just wireframes. At its most complex, it’s fully working mock-ups that look like the finished website design. The prototyping we do will be adjusted to fit your budget. 
  • Prototyping allows us to test ideas before building the entire site. 

Test

  • We’ll test our web designs on a small group and see how people respond, adapting and changing the website design if we see roadblocks in the users’ journeys. 
  • Once all stakeholders are satisfied, we move into web development.

The design thinking methodology isn’t a strictly linear process. I
