Web Design

How It Works

The process of creating a website is similar to other forms of communication. The stages will appear extremely similar if you have experience creating a creative brief, a public relations plan, a communication plan, or a new product. The following steps will illustrate how it works at a basic level and are similar to the ones followed at the web deisgn Johannesburg team Cocopine Web Solutiuons.

Step 01

Research & Design

What are the site’s two or three explicit, quantifiable goals that should be met? The Web team can concentrate on what will have the biggest impact and advance the organization thanks to clear goals. Whom will the organization need to reach its stated objectives? The majority of businesses communicate with a variety of groups, including shareholders, internal audiences, suppliers, partners, and/or government authorities. Demographics, psychographics, brand perceptions, audience demands, online goals, and habitually carried out actions are all included in audience profiles.

Information Architecture

Wireframes for each page are part of the site architecture, along with the sitemap. By establishing the site’s main navigational structure and considering all of the important pages, you can be confident that you’ve taken into account all of the important pages on the website. With the use of wireframes, you can see exactly what will be on each page in great detail. The wireframes serve as a reference for determining the hierarchy of the material on the page even if they do not depict any actual design elements.

Step 03


Once designs have been accepted, it is time to complete the page designs, generate new material, edit existing content, produce movies, slideshows, podcasts, and other media for the website, and begin coding the HTML and CSS.

Choosing the format for your material is the first step in content planning. Visual representation of some ideas will make them stronger and may call for an infographic or movie. Some content could work better in plaintext than others. A blog post, an essay, or an eBook can be the best format for those. Finding out what kinds of material have already been produced on your topic will help you learn a lot.

Step 04

Launch, Measure, Improve

The site will be put on a production server just before it goes live, accessible exclusively to internal audiences and anybody you share the link with. Testing is essential since there will unavoidably be problems that must be fixed before the site goes live. Nothing damages a brand more than a website that is not functional, contains typos, or has broken design components. At this point, it will be necessary to examine the website on several platforms laptops, tablets, and mobile devices as well as several browsers (Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer). We’ve tested the website, reviewd and approve it, and are now prepared to launch.
