Crafted the User Experience
Before starting the design & development, a Pre-Project Website Design Checklist was sent to the client. Our team, in consultation with yours, did an in-depth analysis as per the scope of work and related supporting documents, such that each process linked to the final preparation of the website was clearly understood. A comprehensive, detailed brief, guiding document for the project was provided by the client. We went over the guidelines, examined the documents our client had sent and, researched the competition.
Created the user interface
Based on the requirements and concepts, the HOME PAGE design was worked out depending on the reference sites shared. The UI included visual, interactive elements of an interface, including buttons, icons, spacing, typography, color schemes, and responsive design. The design was approved in the first go with some minor alterations.
Developed the website
Once the home page was finalized and approved, the inside pages were developed, on the similar lines based on the sitemap of the project. The elements designed in the previous steps were utilized to code on the site to make it function and run smoothly.
