In the beginning stage of developing a website, we take a step back to provide a blue print for a business. In order to cater to the individual, we take a series of instruction and methods from previous projects to implement new projects with a better outcome. We like to start with UI for the reason being it is easy to establish before prototyping. We establish a solid plan based on necessities for the business, for example with their color scheme, navigation, and layout. We review the description of the project, where we start figuring the structure of the website but frequently we ask where we start. Either on the Interface where customers would like to see, or the prototype stage what the business would like to use. This is where UI/UX is important to understand the roles, where as they could get mixed up and confused. I provided a bullet list below to help understand the different roles and what to target as a designer.
User Experience (UX) Focus:
- Competitor Analysis
- Product Structure/Strategy
- Content Development
- Wire Framing
- Development Planning
- Coordination with UI Designer(s)
- Coordination with Developer(s)
- Tracking Goals and Integration
- Analysis and Iteration
User Interface (UI) Focus:
- Customer Analysis
- Design Research
- Branding and Graphic Development
- User Guides/Story Line
- UI Prototyping
- Interactivity and Animation
- Adaptation to All Device Screen Sizes
- Implementation with Developer
Now that you have seen the difference on web design for both roles. It’s time to take the next step of the introduction of the business project. Development is a bit scary for designers but essential if the project wants to be a success.
Let me give you the perspective of our company Gibson Design on building the foundation. We assert design trends happening in the moment to encourage audiences to be familiar to your site. We take understanding from major design companies such as Google’s Material Design to core specialists such as Adobe and their projects. After the research is applied to an understanding we start sketching designs of the website with Photoshop CC 2019 making sure we get the layout to appeal to the business and consumer telling their story to their customers. As soon as the tedious process of approval are over, we start developing the framework where we see if implementation is an issue and find solutions. Additionally, we see how we can grow as a company with our client. Interactivity with data captured from the sector and taking advantage of the source is also an additional step often forgotten. We test the site to be up to par with our standards and other website standards, while catching last errors we may find along the way. We approach the end of the life span of our creation, and we are happy to say we have a successful project.
As you could see, at Gibson Design we constantly use interfaces and experiences for a well rounded approach to every project. We give Laredo the designs, development, and enthusiasm for business commerce. We take care of your business and always on good hands.
