Our Process

Client & Magento Consultation

Before we begin creating a website, it is essential that we meet with you to discuss your needs and requirements. This was we can showcase your strengths and eliminate your weak points. An ecommerce website is one of the most important and influential marketing tools for a business, so it is essential that the design for your eCommerce website reflects everything your brand stands for.

During your client consultation you can discuss the ambitions and vision you have for your eCommerce websites and any key requirements you have. It may also be a good idea to provide us with the eCommerce stores and websites that you admire, as this will help us to get a better idea of your style and taste preferences.

Wireframing

The first step we will take when creating an eCommerce design is to create wireframes. These wireframes are blueprints that demonstrate where particular elements will be placed within the design of your eCommerce website. Wireframes are quick and easy to produce, permitting a better overview of the functionality and structure of your eCommerce website, prior to its design.

Once your wireframes have been created, we will walk through them together. Providing you with a clear picture of your eCommerce store with understanding of its functionality.

Design drafts

At this stage you will be provided with the design draft of your eCommerce website. This will allow you to get a clear overview of how your new website will “look and feel”, as well as how it will function as a sales channel.

Trust and Sales

No trust, no sale. It’s as simple as that.

It’s for this reason our eCommerce websites have certain key elements integrated into the design which successfully provide reassurance and encourage customers to purchase with confidence.

Clear, intuitive navigation
Overrides flashy eCommerce design features and is the heart of all successful e-commerce sites
Communication
At every step of the purchase process. So your audience feels at ease throughout their customer jouney
Security throughout
So that engagement with your product leaves customers feeling confident to to buy from you again

Consistent shop-front experience

We all want to feel like that we’re shopping in the store, but without taking the stairs.
E-commerce websites can and should be an exciting interactive experience which appeals to the senses, even though the product in front of us is, at least at this stage, virtual.

User-oriented design
Incorporating known experience from user-flow charts and thorough testing on all interfaces
Multiple payment options
Inviting customers from a range of environments to buy your products.
Intuitive user journey
Supports and directs at every stage of the purchase

At this point changes can still be made to your design. It will be completely up to you to provide feedback on the design and suggest any re-works you require. The web designer will then proceed to make the necessary changes, ensuring your design meets your full needs and requirements. Our designer will then present you with another design draft to review.

Once you’ve signed off the design, we will provide you with a timescale of how long it is going to take them to complete the final design and implement it on your website. This will enable you to plan any marketing around the re-launch of your new website.
