Waukesha Web Design Experts

A Quick-Guide to Social Media ObjectivesWe’re not usually inclined to tooting our own horns, but sometimes it’s refreshing to sit back, look around and reflect on all the cool stuff we’ve been able to do. And lately, we’ve been able to do a lot of websites.

Side note: Have you ever wondered where the expression “toot your own horn” comes from? I wonder things like that all the time. I couldn’t resist looking it up. According to the Reporter-Herald based in Northern Colorado, the expression is an American one, and can be traced back to 1776 in the “Warren-Adams Letters”: “I think modesty is highly overrated as a virtue — my motto is ‘Toot your own horn lest the same never be tooted.'”

Now you know.

As I was saying, we’ve done quite a few website designs and redesigns this year. From the beginning stages of mapping out a site map, to the final stages of running SEO tests and preparing for site launch, designing websites is a fun endeavor, no matter the industry. We’ve had a chance to refine our skill, becoming true Waukesha web design experts. If you’re wondering what goes into a RedMoxy web design process, read on. We’re about to pull back the curtain.

Waukesha Web Design Experts: The Process

What goes into a Waukesha web design? Strategic planning. World-class site map. Exceptional imagery. The perfect font. Powerful headlines. Stunning visuals. Strong paragraphs. Clickable CTAs. A practical path for visitors to follow.   User-friendly functionality. In short, it’s an intense attention to detail that goes into a premium web design.

Generally speaking, though, there’s a simple five-step process that we follow with each web design and web redesign. The five-steps to website success are: discovery, design, development, testing, launch.

1. Discovery

This is the first stage of the website redesign process. It’s a stage of meeting together, talking through goals and ideas for the new site. Here at RedMoxy, we try to understand what you’re really looking for in the site.

We’ll also develop a site map outlining all of the pages you envision for the website. It’ll give you a better sense of how the site will function even before we hand you a design.

After the Discovery stage comes the Design stage. This is the fun part! We’ll design some options and show you the comps. Then, we watch for your feedback. We’ll change an aspect of your design, show you the new comp, and use your feedback to change another aspect of your design. Once we have the final “OK,” it’s off to stage 3…

3. Development

This stage is when the flat, static website design becomes a functioning website. We’ll give you a beta link to play around with the various pages, forms, databases, etc. of your new site, and once that’s perfect, the site is ready to launch.

4. Testing

In this step, you can kick back your heels and relax. We’re working out the final kinks so that we can move on to step 5…

5. Launch

It’s ready! We hit that big red button and launch your new website. The web design project is officially finished.
