The Macromedia Flash Player offers the ability to significantly extend the richness and interactivity of your website. When used tastefully, a Flash movie can really enhance the quality of a user's experience in terms of web design. Projects that use Flash can be multimedia learning modules, interactive product demonstrations, and data-driven applications with rich user interfaces.
A critical step in the design process is having real people give feedback about a website's structure, message and content. By conducting usability studies at different stages of the web design and development process, potential problems can be identified early and re-evaluated before too much work, time, or money is invested. A usability study can be as basic as a open discussion with potential users or as detailed as an observational study of real users interacting with your website.
Search Engine Optimization
Earning a high ranking in search listing engines is a complex interaction involving dozens of factors. Anything from the title of your website to the specific words you choose in your text can determine how a spider indexes your page. Our goal is to maximize
the website's chance of being listed in the searches you care about.
Content Management Solutions, Greater Toronto Area
Most modern websites are dynamic entities, rich with content that changes over time and without regular
maintenance, your website begins to show its age. What you need is a quick and easy way to remove old material from your website's pages and post fresh content without the costly process of hiring a designer each time.
Having worked with many web design clients over the years, we are well aware of this need and have given special attention to providing workable content management solutions. Whether your pages are statically designed with plain HTML, or dynamically generated from records in a database, we give you control over your website's content by implementing content management solutions.
Depending on the size of your website, our web development process may include the following steps:
a- Preliminary Interview
We arrange a free one-hour consultation to discuss the client's needs and generate project ideas.
Based upon the preliminary interview, we create a proposal describing the website's audience, a review of similar websites, a description of existing content and content to be developed (text, photos, and graphics), a structure diagram, a schedule, and a cost estimate.
c- Appearance Draft
We go through at least one round of appearance drafts (web page illustrations to show colors, fonts, graphic elements, and layout possibilities) to determine the look and feel of the website.
d- Research and Design Plan
Large projects of our clients in York, Peel, Durham, Halton and
Toronto may require researching the needs of a particular target audience, developing business ideas, or researching technology options. The result is a design plan outlining research results, graphic design specifications and business strategy.
e- Collecting Content
We collect existing content and help the client develop new content for the website including taking photographs, writing and editing text, and creating buttons and graphics.
f- Usability Testing
For large and complex websites, at various stages of the project we conduct usability tests to make sure potential website visitors understand the purpose and features of the website and find it easy to use.
g- Online Draft
Once a final design has been agreed upon and all the necessary content has been collected, we create an online draft. Clients can review current work online.
The project is officially launched. The client receives a CD copy of all relevant work and the website is made publicly accessible on the Internet.
