In my career as a designer and developer, I’ve had the opportunity to do this through coding, design, and UX, for some amazing clients.
Aside from web design, I am passionate about mixed martial arts, and regularly practice jiu jitsu and boxing. I also love listening to and making music.
When I begin a new web project the first thing I do is find out as much information as possible about the client, and what their needs and goals are. I also study existing websites within the relevant industry, and then develop a strategy for a successful project.
With a clear strategy in mind, I’ll then start working on the design. I create a wireframe first, a simple representation of the final layout, that maps out the user experience, including the placement of content, and the system of navigation. Then I will incorporate visual elements such as photography, and existing brand elements.
Once the design is established, I begin developing the website. I hand-code each website from scratch, and strive to create lean, semantic code that looks great on all screens, and in all browsers.
Once the website is developed, it is time to take it live. Before it is launched though, I’ll test the website on a test server to make sure everything is working nicely. This involves viewing the website on a variety of devices and browsers, as well as observing others using the website.
After the website is launched it can be optimized to improve it’s performance, based on user behaviour. By studying Analytics, a website can be tweaked to improve the user experience and increase conversion rates.
