We build websites for our clients that are strategic, creative, engaging, reinforce your creditability, communicate your message effectively, and turn prospects into profits for your business.
Website Design for Interior Designer Firms
If the website for an interior designer or architect looks unprofessional and sloppy, how can a potential client trust you to design or build their home? Many won’t and will simply move on to a competitor that has taken the time to have their website professionally created by an experienced website designer. In this day and age, it’s crucial to have a website for your business. And, when you are in an industry that relies on aesthetics to attract clients, such as interior designers, home builders, general contractors, or architects, a beautifully designed and functional website is even more critical.
Website Design for Financial Service Firms
Financial service businesses have different demands for website design than other kinds of companies. A website for a financial services company must balance security, compliance, customer experience, messaging and branding. That takes finding the right web designer with experience. A financial service website can make all the difference in how a customer or prospect feels about your brand. A website should let a user find what they need but also steer them in the direction you want them to go. The journey through the sales funnel should be intuitive.
Website Design Process.
Step 1: Brief
The purpose of the brief is to convey an accurate project definition to the web agency. The client needs to explain their business, their target audience and the goals of the website – is it to wow a young visitor with exciting imagery and modern videos? Or is its function to allow no-nonsense online shopping for an average parent?
Step 2: Planning
Through research and brainstorming sessions, Juniper will outline ideas and concepts for the website that would fit the client’s specifications. An important part of this is usually the information architecture, which basically defines how the content will be structured throughout the website and how a visitor will access it.
Step 3: Design
This is the step where the website starts to take shape. The web designer will now have all the data needed to start working on the actual look of this project. Depending on the size and scope of the project, we select several pages to be designed and shared with the client, along with a style guide for the overall website.
Step 4: Development
Once the designs are approved both internally and by the client, we move into development. WordPress is generally our content management system (CMS) of choice – along with about half the internet. It’s mobile friendly and, most importantly, easy for our clients to update and maintain post-launch and into the future.
Step 5: QA & Testing
Quality Assurance is a vital role after development development is complete. At this stage we test everything internally, and allow the client an opportunity to test the site fully before launch. This allows us to pinpoint specific issues directly on the live (staging) site, and keeps the testing phase of work as efficient as possible.
Step 6: Launch
Finally, we flip the switch and the website is live! We make it sound so simple but it’s a refined process that ensures both a smooth launch and smooth handoff to the client for ongoing management. With all clients we run through a comprehensive content management training, demonstrating how to update content and manage the site internally.
