The very first step to approach our design is to gather all the inputs/requirements from the clients end. Then we study the feasibility of the requirement and also suggest one final input to achieve that goal. For this, we need to have a good understanding of the project.
Once all the inputs are finalised, We create a wireframe of the website/application. We discuss the same with the client , do the required changes, if needed. After that, a final mockup design is created which is based on the wireframe. We also do design tweaking until the client is happy and satisfied.
After the designing phase, we work on the functionality of the application. This involves writing valid HTML / CSS code that complies to current web standards and maximizes the functionality. The website designer also works hand in hand with the developer to make the designing changes, if required.
After the code is developed, it is tested against the requirements to make sure that the product is actually solving the needs gathered during the requirements phase. It includes complete functionality testing of the forms or other scripts, as well testing for last minute compatibility issues.
This is the final phase where the website is moved to its domain name. During this phase, the security subject matter experts review all the security risks that were identified in previous phases to ensure they have been fixed. If it runs without any flaw, then it is considered ready to be launched.
