How the Website Design and Development process works
Understand how it works and learns every step of the website design and development process in this handy guide.
Good design, whether for a brand or a layout for the web, goes far beyond just choosing colors and fonts – it's made of the process. Each professional has a different way of working, but the main objective is always to develop a project that meets the needs not only of the client but of his audience.
Below, I've listed in order the process I use for the projects I develop:
It is the first step and the most important of all. Here, I seek to know about the company – who it is, what is its history, what is its purpose, what is its personality, who is its audience.
Is it a new company or has it been on the market for years? Where does the company intend to go? What is the feeling that the company wants to convey to its audience? WHO is your audience?
It is very important to understand these issues because the next steps will be based on all this information.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here, I do a competitor analysis. Who are? What do most have in common? Are there any elements of the area that are in common use (cliché)? By doing this research, I discover what other companies in the area have in common to be able to do DIFFERENTLY. At this stage, I also look for ideas and inspirations within the client's mood.
Time to put together a briefing and research and start writing down all the ideas I have. Here, on paper, I make some sketches of what I have in mind of how I intend to structure the project and the elements I intend to use.
Let's get your hands dirty! Here, I draw the layout. The best tool for me is Photoshop – but for vectors, I like to use Illustrator or Affinity Designer (but I think Illustrator is better and more complete). ⠀⠀⠀
Once the layout is approved by the customer, it's time to start the website development process and create the codes. All sites are developed on WordPress so that all content is 100% manageable by the customer – that way, it doesn't depend on anyone and any technical knowledge to modify texts and images in general.

What is the benefit of having a well-designed website?
When we meet someone, the first impression is the one that stays, right? With websites, it works that way too. Upon entering a very well-developed platform, we already judge you as a credible company, which invests in the best for its client. Everything must be architected in a homogeneous way, with accessible and intuitive information. In addition to facilitating viewing, the consumer spends more time browsing the site. Did you know that an incorrect layout, with wrongly arranged information and visually messy, causes depressing effects on what you are accessing?
