The next phase looks the design elements such branding, logos, colours, user experience (UX), the sentiment and goals of the website. We then create the information architecture and sitemap. At this stage we would include wire-frames and mock-ups of website home page and internal pages.
Then we move on to content, tweaking and editing existing or creating new content always keeping SEO in mind when creating content.
Once this has been achieved, we implement front and back-end development, code and build the website. The website is built using content, images and calls to action to promote engagement and conversion.

The client provides a number of services within the construction industry so we had to create a mobile responsive website to showcase these services.

We created the website, carried out keyword research and SEO, organised procurement of the domain and search engine submission.
PortPromos provide a range of display and merchandising products and offer on-site visual display marketing services for promotions and events. Our objective for this project was to create an engaging website which showpieced their product range and services. We started out with a thorough exploration process to fully understand the client’s objectives and goals. From there we started our design process, this started with the architecture which we developed initially from low resolution wireframes. Following this we developed a styleboard and visual mockups – this enabled us to give a visual understanding of the theme and style of the website before we started development. The website was built from the ground up which gave us complete flexibility and control on how the website would look and feel. We carried out keyword research, SEO and submitted the website for indexing. We integrated the website with social media accounts and provided our client with a management strategy.
