Website design is the core of all the internet marketing activities. Let’s see it this way, we see a post of some website on social media or google some services we want in a website and then finally go in there. Now, when we open the website it gets really important for the website to provide us with what we want and how can that website provide us with it. Here, website design is like the first impression we portray of our company to our visitors. If it doesn’t catch their eye, they’re not coming back.
In 1989, Tim Bernes Lee invented the world wide web (WWW). He founded and directs the world wide consortium (WWC), the forum for the technical development of the web.
Website design is a complex structure and it needs a specific planned approach towards it. We at Developers Nation are well aware of it and use the following steps as guidelines –
Analysis- Analysing the purpose of the website, what it has to serve, its goals and the kind of target audience required is the first work leading to a specified planned approach to developing the website.
Planning- Once the analysis is done, it gives the basis for planning of the sitemap, website structure that needs to be developed. The technologies that will be required for the execution of it.
Design- Finally, designing the website is done with wireframe models, proper visual style and usability of it. The design of the website is a window for the ideas behind the website. It represents the way that company wants to work, with what on hand and what to give.
Content- What is put up out there is shown through the content and so the content of it is based on its copywriting, photos and videos for a better understanding and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation).
Development- The work of HTML and CSS coding is essential here for an all round development. Database catering is essential too. It requires the most expertise due to its complexity. A high level of planning is required when development takes place.
Testing- Our work doesn’t stop here, to design and develop are not the only requirements. The website needs to be technically tested by checking its browser compatibility. Is the website fulfilling its purpose needs to be checked? With this, a constant monitoring of the website for its maintenance and bug fixing the possible difficulties.
The culmination of technology and arts:
Website designing resides with itself both technological science and art. With science, the technical requirements to build a website are required. Science help understands the purpose, goals, and target of the website. In this way business are supposed to be looked at and help plan the development.
Art comes when the content and designing are done. With art, the beauty of the content; it’s copywriting, pictures and videos become easy. Art helps writing and to picturize in a way that it means something to both the company and the clients and visitors.
Here, it won’t be wrong to say that art and science feed a platform together to get wonders made into websites.
