Web Design for the real world

Pixelhaus Studios are a full service web design company based in Bournemouth covering Dorset and the UK for design, build and digital marketing. So what do we mean by 'real world'? Before we start any website design project we take the time to fully understand your business. We research your brand, strategy, products, services and most importantly your customers so we can create an end result that is tailormade to you and your needs.

Our Process

Every website (and indeed customer) is unique but there are common aspects to every project:


planning

Planning

We will discuss with you what your goal is from the project. Anyone can design a pretty website; eye candy if you prefer. But unless clear goals have been defined for the purpose of the website you will not see the return on your investment.

Examples might include to increase enquiries about services, an uplift in sales, reducing bottlenecks in a sales pipeline or increasing traffic from mobile users.

web design features

Features/Design

We will choose an appropriate content management platform that is best suited to your needs and then specify the functionality that is required.

WireframingDepending on budget we may choose an appropriate theme for your site and customise it or alternatively we will design from scratch; in this instance we may provide wireframe layouts as part of the design process.

implementation

Implementation

This is the stage of the project where the designs or chosen theme are implemented in code. This can take time but generally the site will be online on a test domain so you see progress as it happens.

Testing

Once built and nearing completion we test it on different devices and browsers, making sure it works as expected including on mobiles. Usability testingAny changes that are required within the design and specification brief will be carried out. Changes that go beyond this would be chargeable.

wordpress training

Training

Depending on the choice of platform for your site, we will train you or key members of your staff in the relevent aspects of managing it. This can either be done in person at our offices, at your place of work or via remote screensharing.

website launch

Handover and launch

When the site is ready to launch, we will make the necessary changes to the server, redirect the domain name and set up any required email addresses. Additional works usually include setting up 301 redirects, implementing google analytics and webmaster tools.
