What we do
You know exactly what you want and your mind draws a clear picture of all steps to be made. Even in this case it is necessary to spend some on communicating this vital information to us – your contractors. We will listen to you, ask some clarifying questions, structure all gathered information and give you our answers whether we are able to make your idea a reality and how we suggest it should be done.
At the beginning of any project we look into the most important aspects that can be analyzed, we perform qualitative and quantitative research through surveys and testing. Using these techniques we come up with key issues of development process.
Experience has proven that it is extremely difficult, if not – impossible, to meet all feasible interests of all user categories. However making the product user-friendly for a specific group of users that has a specific goal is more than real. That is why it is so important to determine and describe the target audience.
On the basis of all the data collected we compose the terms of reference (technical specifications) for the project. It is a document that describes in detail the main “expectations” of the product and brings them closer to the “reality” of the final solution.
Visual representation is without doubt one of the best ways to showcase the future of the product. In rare cases graphs and descriptions can be a worthy substitution for a working model – the prototype. With prototypes we can easily demonstrate our point to the customer and at the same time our client can see a specific visualization of his idea. At this stage we often detect errors, inaccuracies or incorrect assumptions made during the stage of analysis or TOR compilation. Interface design stage helps to evaluate project architecture and structure, perform interface usability assessment.
Prototypes can be done in pencil on paper, drawn using graphics tablets or specialized software that provides dynamic interaction. The choice of technology depends on various factors – the complexity of design, customer requirements for granularity, existing time constraints.
While interface design is all about consistency, convenience and comprehensibility, graphic design is the embodiment of beauty, aesthetics and style. Without doubt even the simplest to use product can be beautiful and tasteful.
Our designer draws the future website layouts, building on prototypes, which were created in compliance with the rules and requirements of ergonomics. On the one hand, bounds set by the prototype narrow designer’s creativity; on the other hand, it enables full devotion to design without the necessity of thinking about the arrangement of the elements, their aims, benefits and usability.
In order for a beautiful picture made by graphic designer to become a website first the layout must be converted into HTML – or simply “made up”. At the same time line by line the code is written – programmers are hard at work. Website functionality depends entirely on the quality of this work.
Often website development is associated with programming – which is only one stage in the complex process of website creation. The rest of the stages are either referred to programming or omitted altogether. Under this approach, specific processes and tasks that require relevant professional work, knowledge and experience are assigned to programmers and that inevitably affects the final quality of the product.
Testing is an integral stage in our understanding of the website development technical process. Before the release we make total and thorough website audit – we look for errors in texts, incorrect display of icons and illustrations, incorrect location of the menu items, we make sure all functional elements operate seamlessly and much more.
Our goal is to provide our client the final version in its best possible state by looking into every corner of the website and by checking its every detail.
