Website Design

Design is a very subjective subject. At Electric Bricks we understand this. We work closely with all our clients to make sure that their website meets their vision. We bring our understanding of marketing and our decades of graphic arts and design experience to advise and guild you, so the final product not only meets your expectations, but achieves the most important objective – helping you grow your business.

Sound challenging? It can be. But this is what we do – every day.

No cookie-cutter themes or shortcuts here! We are true graphic designers. Everything we do starts in Photoshop, the way it should. Long before we ever write a line of code, we’re designing your site to reflect you and your business in a way that builds confidence and trust in your brand.

And we make the process as simple as possible, guiding you at each step and making sure no milestone is missed. Here’s an overview of our site design process.

Project Kick-Off

We meet with you, whether in-person or remotely, to discuss your business, your goals, and your ideal client.

Asset Aggregation

We gather the initial building blocks – logo, images, corporate color scheme, etc. If these items don’t yet exists we can help.

Sitemap & Content

We help you determine what content the site will need and the most logical, effective way to organize it. We can also help you write compelling content to truly make your products or services shine.

Competitive Review

We evaluate your competition, both large and small, to see what they’re doing right, what they’re doing wrong, and develop a solid marketing plan.

Design Comp Development

Based on your input, your likes and dislikes, and the assets we’ve collected, we design two potential design composition candidates. Using Photoshop, we illustrate how your branding and marketing message can be seamlessly blended into a web design that will be uniquely yours.

Content Writing

Written content gets developed for all critical landing pages.

Design Comp Review

We review both design comps with you, taking the time to explain the rationale and advantages of each. While neither is a right or wrong choice, it’s nice to have options.

Staging Site Development

Using the outcome of the design comp review and what we learned during kick-off, a staging site is built. This is where specific functionalities are incorporated. If you have one, your existing website stays up during this process.

Content Population

This is where it all comes together. Written content and images are worked into the staging site and the navigation is finalized. It’s looking like a real website now.

Staging Site Review

Time to look it all over. We go over everything with you, making sure that we didn’t miss anything and it all works as expected.

Move to Production Server

The final approved staging site is migrated to the production server, we point your domain name, and your new site is LIVE!

Training

While we take care of all the boring stuff, like backups and software updates, we teach you how to add and edit content on your new website. Trust us, it’s easier than you think.
