A website redesign project is a great opportunity to refresh your online presence and improve the user experience for your visitors. However, it can also be a complex and time-consuming process, requiring careful planning and coordination. In this blog, we’ll provide an overview of what you can expect from a website redesign project, so you can prepare and make the most of this exciting opportunity.
A Comprehensive Assessment of Your Current Website.
One of the first steps in a website redesign project is a comprehensive assessment of your current website. This will involve evaluating the design, content, and functionality of your current website, and determining what needs to be improved. At Vibes, our web designer will likely ask for your input on your goals for the redesign, and conduct user research to gather information on how people are currently using your site.
A Clear Definition of Your Website’s Objectives and Goals
Once Vibes Design has a good understanding of your current site and the needs of your users, we will work with you to define your website’s objectives and goals. This will include determining what you hope to achieve with your redesign, such as increasing conversions, improving user experience, or streamlining your content. This step is critical to ensure that your redesign project stays on track and delivers the results you want.
A Detailed Design Plan
Vibes has a unique approach to designing your new site, where we offer a pre-development dynamic desktop mockup. This mockup, built on WordPress, will be a visual representation of the homepage and key templates. Our process skips the design stage in Figma and other design tools, but allows for creative exploration and consideration of new design trends. Once you approve the mockup, we’ll move forward with developing the rest of the website, ensuring it is functional and user-friendly.
Content Creation and Migration
Once the design has been developed, Vibes will start creating and migrating your content to the new site. This can be a complex process, as you’ll need to ensure that all your content is organised and formatted correctly for the new site. You may also need to create new content to fill any gaps or improve upon existing content. This is a good opportunity to review and revise your content, making sure it is up-to-date and relevant.
Testing and Launch
Before your new website can be launched, it will need to be thoroughly tested to ensure that it is working as intended. This will include testing on a range of devices and browsers, as well as user testing to make sure the site is easy to use. Once any issues have been resolved, your new site will be ready to launch!
Ongoing Maintenance and Optimisation
Your website redesign project doesn’t end when your new site goes live. Your website will need ongoing maintenance and optimisation to keep it running smoothly and to ensure that it continues to deliver the results you want. This will include regular updates and backups, as well as ongoing optimisation of your content and design to ensure that your site remains relevant and effective.
A website redesign project is a big undertaking, but it can be a highly rewarding experience. By working closely with our web designers, you can ensure that your new site delivers the results you want and provides a great user experience for your visitors. With careful planning and execution, your website redesign project can be a success!
