Our Process

Ensuring you have a fantastic project experience matters just as much to us as the quality of the final product we hand over.

Our process framework not only ensures that all of our projects run smoothly, but it also gives you ample opportunity to be as involved in the design & feedback process as you’d like to be.

Discovery

First, we take the time to fully understand your objectives so that we are certain we are starting from a place of unity and know what direction is best suited to the needs of you and your business.

Planning

Taking influence from the discovery phase, we will work with you to produce a plan of action. Typically, we’ll construct a low fidelity wireframe to help us bring clarity to what information is to be presented and to establish where new content may need to be produced.

Design

Once a wireframe has been established we can turn our focus towards the look and feel of your website.

By working in this way and thinking about the content first we not only expedite the design process by working concurrently to build content and copy, but we ensure that we have a solid foundation for design based on functionality first.

Depending on the complexity of the project at hand, we will create full website mock-ups to clarify our design before developing the site itself. For simple projects, the design and development process can be combined, saving time and enabling you to get a hands-on look at your site as it’s being built.

Development

The development phase of the project sees us execute our plan; we make sure you are always kept in the loop and able to be as hands off or as collaborative as you want during the entire process.

We take care behind the scenes to ensure that best practices are followed. Our websites are optimised for all devices and are developed with user experience and SEO in mind. The invisible parts of a website are often where corners are cut, we pride ourselves on making sure things are done correctly and our quality control throughout the process.

Launch

We don’t leave you in the dark after a website is up and running. We will always provide you with training so you get the most out of your new website.

We offer a selection of ongoing support packages that cater for a variety of needs across all sizes of businesses. This ensures our process of refinement continues long after a project is launched using real world feedback to gain valuable insight into how visitors are using your site.

You also have access to a range of SEO specific packages should you want to invest in keyword driven content to drive organic traffic to your website.

Google Business 5 star reviews vector

Wilkes Wood built my new website and I couldn't be more pleased. They were excellent to work with… I was very informed throughout the entire process and they helped me learn the website so now if I want to make any changes I can do it myself. If I had any questions along the way they got back to me in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Wilkes Wood to anybody in need of a new website.
