Discover our website design process
We have a multi-phased approach to building digital solutions such as WordPress, Umbraco, or Magento websites.
We kick off our process with a discovery phase where we learn all about your brand and business needs. During this phase, we look at competitive benchmarking and complete an audit of your existing website, such as how it currently performs for SEO. Once the discovery phase is complete our web designers begin to analyse the site structure and architecture to complete a new sitemap and navigation. We will produce wireframes to prioritise and organise your content before creating high-fidelity designs. During the design stage, we apply your brand to the approved wireframes to create a gorgeous-looking website.
When the page designs are approved our team of web developers gets to work on bringing the designs to life. This can be a time-intensive stage of the process and can take weeks to months to complete depending on the content management system (CMS) and the number of integrations required. When the development has been completed the site is then rigorously tested across devices and browsers to make sure it is responsive, accessible and free from bugs. Once you are happy with the build and it's all signed off the website will be launched and made ready for the world!
We build lots of different types of websites
It can be easy to think of websites as a single monolithic term. However, there are a lot of variances between sites such as the distinction between a brochure site and eCommerce.
Our team of developers is not wedded to any one content management system. We assess your needs and recommend a content management system based on your business goals. WordPress is an extremely popular platform which many people have experience editing and lots of our clients use this platform. WordPress has lots of plugins and can offer eCommerce functionality through WooCommerce. Another popular CMS choice is Umbraco websites. The Umbraco CMS is one of our favourite platforms which offers great editing capabilities. eCommerce is also a large part of what we do and when it comes to larger catalogues and eCommerce sites we also offer Shopify and Magento development.
We also have a wealth of experience in software integrations which extends the functionality of your website. Many of our clients use a ticketing system called Spektrix and over time we have created a robust Spektrix integration that can seamlessly get theatre and arts organization sites online quickly and without hassle.
How to Choose a Glasgow Web Design Agency?
Choosing the right digital firm to work with can be a daunting task at first glance. Your digital presence is often the first place your potential customers will see your brand. So it's vital to make an excellent first impression. A good website design company will work with you to outline your goals, set priorities and help create a pathway to success. One of the best ways to assess a digital agency is to look at its portfolio of work. You can then get a really good feel for the work produced. You will be able to browse sites they have built in the past and may be able to read testimonials or reviews from previous customers. You should also make some time to speak with them. Most creative and development companies will offer a consultation meeting where you can outline your project and get a good feel for the people there and the solutions they offer.
How much should you pay a web designer in Glasgow?
When you are looking to hire a website designer based in Glasgow it helps to have a budget in mind. This helps to provide an accurate quote that will get the most from your budget and help the agency find a good fit for your company. Parachute works with budgets large and small and has web design packages which can be tailored around your organisation. Speak with our team of Glasgow Web Designers and find out how we can help you with both website design and web development and get you a great quote for your project.
How long does website development take?
The length of time it takes to build a project depends on a lot of factors such as the size of the website and the level of functionality required so that the website meets your requirements but also makes visitors to your website happy. A general build takes Parachute around 3 months to complete. If the website is a simple brochure site it will be faster, while more complex eCommerce websites will take longer to design and build.
