Are you in need of new websites for yourself or your business but don't know where to begin? If so, read on! In this article we take a look at the different stages of new website design to help you begin to clarify your requirements and start the journey into website ownership.
Before you can find a suitable website designer to create your new website you first need to clarify the purpose or concept of your website. What do you need the website for? Is it to promote your business online, is it a personal website which informs users about you or your hobbies? Thinking carefully about what you expect to do with your website, and what you expect your website to do for you helps you to begin to understand the type of website design which your new website will need.
After you have carefully clarified and noted down the concept for your new website, you can begin to create a website design brief to send to potential website designers and website design firms. Your ideal website brief will be clear and focused, and any potential website designers reading should understand exactly your website design requirements. For further information about writing the perfect website design brief, take a look at our blog post Website Design: How to get what you want.
Professional website designers and website design firms will be able to recommend the ideal type of website design which best meets your requirements based on your website design brief. Although there are numerous specialist website design styles (business card websites, portfolio websites, creative websites etc) available, websites will fall under one of two "types" - Static or Dynamic.
Now that you have a very clear idea of the ideal website design for your new website, and a basic understanding of the ways in which new websites can be built and designed you can start to find suitable website designers to manage your project.
