Effort Involved

When you approach an agency to design your website, you need to consider all of the above. Each of the above is a puzzle piece towards your online success. Website is, therefore, a very broad and unspecific term.

On this page, we want to specifically focus on the user experience facet of web design. Having a visual website that suits your business CI is very important. Many websites are designed with a completely different visual representation in mind, then the actual business. As a visitor, you, therefore, get an entirely different feel when you compare a website to a physical store. Think about this for a moment. Imagine your favourite local website and then imagine one of their bricks and mortar stores. Was there some unity involved? If the answer is “yes”, then they successfully conveyed the brand’s identity across platforms.

The above mentioned is something that every web owner should keep in mind when having a website designed. There are, however, implications. Designing a custom look for your website that suits bricks and mortar stores aren’t cheap. A designer will need to design interactive Adobe InDesign screens for every page on your website. These pages need to flow into each other in a logical way. Completing this task takes a lot of time and is labour intensive. It’s therefore, not a cheap exercise. Many clients don’t understand this concept and are blown away when they’re quoted for such a project. What are your options if the quote is too expensive?

Templating Sites

WordPress templating sites store millions of pre-made template that you can use for your website. Many web design agencies in South Africa use pre-made templates to build cheaper websites.

The reason why this is an economic solution is that they simply purchase a template for a few USD and they re-use that template for many different clients. This means that your website might look similar to many other websites out there as any agency globally, can purchase this template. If you’re in need of complete custom design and want your brand to look unique, you’ll need to invest some capital in having a custom website designed.

SwiftCom Web Design Process

Firstly, our team will meet with you to draw a complete flow of your website. Mapping all pages to each other and making sense of your website’s flow.
Once the design fact-finding stage is completed, we’ll move on to the wireframe phase. During this phase, we’ll lay out all the elements required on each page. The wireframes can be thought of as a floor plan of what the page should look like. Once you’re happy with the wireframes, we’ll move on to building the interactive design.
The interactive design is built in Adobe XD and allows you to navigate each screen of your website and see a real scale representation of what it’s going to look like. During this phase, it’s a lot easier for us to make design changes in order to satisfy your website design needs.

If extensive changes are requested during the coding phase, it’s a lot more difficult to make these changes and therefore, not economic.
Our design team will consult with you to understand your visual needs. During this stage, we’ll get a feel of how we should visually present your business. Our team will regularly have Zoom calls or in-person meetings with you to ensure we have all the required information.
Before starting with the interactive design, we need to be sure that all content is at hand. Each page needs to have written content to either explain the business process, product categories or product descriptions. If you don’t have the capacity to generate such content, SwiftCom’s premium content writing team is able to assist.
The final stage of having your custom website design is the coding phase. During this phase we’ll code the screens into web screens that are dynamic as required. We’ll construct a custom WordPress template for your site to make it look exactly like the design templates.

Once this stage has been completed, we’re ready to launch your website. Bearing in mind, you might need to set up additional other services like Google Analytics, Google AdWords, Google Webmaster Tools, on-page SEO, off-page SEO, etc.
