My Web Design Process: Ep. 1 - Getting To Know Each Other [Video]

Web Design

Are you considering building a website for your new business or redesigning an existing website to help you to better hit your targets? Find out all about my web design process from start to finish.

Very rarely do people like change, so it's no surprise that launching or redesigning a website can be a daunting experience. That's why I wanted to share my web design process from start to finish – to help demystify the website design journey for small and medium sized businesses.

"Having a solid, industry-standard web design process can be invaluable when working on a project."

Since last year, I've been working as a freelance web designer and brand strategist with SMEs in Ireland and one of the things that has become clear is that having a solid, industry-standard web design process can be invaluable when working on a project.

In my very first YouTube video, I dove into the process of creating Prism from a strategy, professional development, and pandemic point of view, speaking with GCN's Lisa Connell & Stefano Pappalardo to understand the impact of the website for their audience.

Now, I'm planning to shed some more light on the web design process to help SME owners, managers and marketeers understand what to expect when working with a designer or developer on a project.

After studying the web design process from world-renowned design educator Ran Segall at his Flux Academy, I've developed my own process that guides my work with web design and development clients which I detail in the YouTube video below.

My Web Design Process - Extra Tip

As a client looking to hire a web designer, some of the things you should prepare for your first call include:

  • A summary of what your business does and how it does it
  • Who your target audience is
  • What problems you or your customers are facing with your current website
  • Why you think these issues are happening
  • What you would like to achieve by redesigning your website
  • When you would like your website to go live

If you can prepare this information in advance of initial contact, it should help your web designer understand your situation and tailor a package to your specific needs.
