Step 1: Site Goals Review
The first step in designing and developing the Gatta Homes website was to review the site goals. Brand Vision worked closely with Gatta Homes to identify their business objectives and understand their target audience. The web design team also conducted research on industry trends and best practices to ensure that the website design was aligned with the latest standards. This step helped to set the foundation for the website's overall design and development.
Step 2: User Persona
To ensure that the website design catered to the target audience's needs, the web design team created user personas. The user personas represented the ideal customer that Gatta Homes wanted to attract to their website. These personas helped to identify user needs, behaviors, and preferences, allowing the design team to create a website that catered to the target audience's needs.
Step 3: Sitemap Creation
Once the user personas were created, the web design team developed a sitemap. The sitemap served as a blueprint for the website's structure, outlining the different pages and their hierarchy. This step helped to ensure that the website was easy to navigate and that users could find the information they needed quickly.
Step 4: Sketched Low-Fidelity Wireframes
The web design team then sketched low-fidelity wireframes, which served as a visual representation of the website's layout and functionality. This step allowed the team to test different design concepts and identify potential usability issues before moving to the next stage.
Step 5: UX and UI Design
Based on the wireframes, the web design team developed the website's user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) design. The UX design focused on creating an intuitive and user-friendly website, while the UI design focused on creating an aesthetically pleasing and consistent visual design.
Step 6: Mobile Design
As mobile devices continue to dominate internet usage, the web design team made sure that the website was mobile-friendly. This step involved creating a mobile-first design, ensuring that the website was optimized for small screen sizes and touch-based navigation.
Step 7: Figma Prototype
To provide Gatta Homes with a tangible representation of the website's design, the web design team created a Figma prototype. The Figma prototype allowed the client to preview the website's design and provide feedback on its functionality and aesthetics.
Step 8: Front-end Mobile Development
Once the Figma prototype was approved, the web design team moved on to front-end mobile development. This step involved coding the website's design into a functional website that was optimized for mobile devices.
Step 9: Plugin/API Implementation & Optimization
To enhance the website's functionality, the web design team implemented various plugins and APIs. This step involved integrating third-party tools and services into the website to improve its performance and user experience.
Step 10: Hosting Setup
After the website design and development were complete, the web design team helped set up hosting. This step involved configuring the website's hosting settings and ensuring that it was optimized for performance and security.
