Our Web Design Process: Crafting Success, Step by Step

At Excalibur Press, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive approach to web design. While the following outlines our typical process, we understand that every project is unique. As such, our steps can be tailored to suit client needs and budgets, ensuring flexibility without compromising on quality.

Step 1: Discovery & Research

Our journey begins with an in-depth consultation. We delve into understanding your business, its goals, and the target audience. This foundational step ensures the website aligns with your brand’s objectives and resonates with its intended users.

Step 2: Strategy & Planning

Armed with our research, we craft a clear roadmap. This includes defining the project’s scope, setting timelines, and outlining key deliverables.

Step 3: Design & Wireframing

With a strategy in hand, we move to the design phase. Initial designs and wireframes are created, offering a visual guide for the website’s layout and functionality.

Step 4: Website Development

During this phase, we transform the design into a working website. Using the latest web technologies, we ensure the site is responsive, user-friendly, and compatible across devices. Additionally, we integrate basic SEO practices to ensure the website is optimised for search engines and user engagement.

Step 5: Quality Assurance & Testing

Before the website goes live, it undergoes rigorous testing. This ensures optimal performance across different browsers and devices, guaranteeing a consistent user experience.

Step 6: Launch

Once thoroughly tested, the website is launched. We oversee a smooth transition, ensuring your digital presence is established seamlessly.

Step 7: Training

After the launch, we provide guidance on managing and updating the website. This ensures you’re equipped with the knowledge to maintain its content and features.

Step 8: Hosting, Maintenance & More!

We offer reliable hosting solutions to keep the website accessible at all times. Our team is available for ongoing maintenance, ensuring the site remains secure and up-to-date. Additionally, we can assist with setting up services like Google Workspace to further streamline your digital operations.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it typically take to build a website?

The timeframe for completing a website can vary depending on the project’s complexity. However, a standard website typically takes between 6 to 10 weeks from conception to launch. This is contingent on receiving all the required information from you, including text and images. For more details on what this involves, you can refer to our web design process outlined above.

While we offer flexible payment options tailored to the specific needs of each project, a typical website project is usually paid for in two instalments, which is an industry standard. A 50% deposit is required to initiate the project, with the remaining balance due upon completion.

Absolutely, yes. When you work with us, you’re directly in touch with the local team responsible for building your website. We believe in full transparency and accountability, which is why all our work is done in-house by our Belfast-based team. This ensures seamless communication, quicker turnaround times, and higher quality work.

In contrast, some agencies that outsource their development work can face challenges such as salespeople overselling capabilities or not being fully aware of technical limitations and workflows. This can lead to projects going over-schedule and over-budget, and often results in end products that don’t meet the quality or expectations initially promised. We’ve even had to step in to rescue clients who have faced such issues with other agencies in the past.

Yes, we provide ongoing maintenance and support services to keep your website secure and up-to-date. Our pay-as-you-go rate is £40 per hour. However, if you opt for a bundle of over 5 hours, the rate is reduced to £30 per hour. Please note that these rates are exclusive of VAT.

Absolutely. We understand the importance of being able to make updates to your website without always relying on external help. That’s why we build our websites with user-friendly content management systems and provide training to help you manage your site effectively. Our aim is to empower you to perform basic updates and maintenance tasks, such as adding new content or updating images, on your own. Of course, we’re always here for more complex issues or updates you’d like to make.

Absolutely, all our websites are designed to be fully responsive, ensuring an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices—from desktop computers to tablets and smartphones. A mobile-responsive design not only improves user experience but also has a positive impact on SEO. Google uses mobile-first indexing, meaning that the mobile version of your website is the one that will primarily be used for ranking and indexing. Our approach involves using flexible grid layouts, responsive images, and media queries to adapt your website to the device it’s being viewed on, ensuring a seamless user experience.

Yes, we offer tailored packages that can include a combination of our various services to meet your specific needs.
