Tigplant’s approach for graphical design is firstly, we go through the work that has to be done, then Tigplant sends a quotation. Lastly you approve and return the signed quotation to Tigplant and the graphic design will start.
Approach web design
Tigplant tailors websites to the customer, for that reason the development of a website usually starts with a conversation.
In this consultation we discuss topics such as whether you want to manage the content of the website yourself, or for Tigplant to manage your site, your budget, your ideas, your mission and who your customers are.
Depending on your wishes, we discuss the possibilities, timeline and costs.
Afterwards, we send a quotation. To approve the assignment, you send back the signed quotation. Then the work begins.
You need to collect and make an inventory of content for the website. Maybe there is material available from an older website, or perhaps text has to be written.
The content of the website is your responsibility, you will provide the text to Tigplant in a digital format.
Tigplant will read, perform content redaction and rewrite where necessary keeping in mind the search engines.
Photos for the website have to be of sufficient quality and do not originate from ‘Google’.
(3/6) Brainstorming about website
We plan an extensive meeting in which we discuss your vision and target audience. We combine it with a brainstorming session with you and other team members in which every idea for content, design, interaction, flow and functionality of the website will be put on the table.
In this phase there is no such thing as a ‘bad idea’. Every idea is encouraged, expressed verbally and written down.
Tigplant makes an inventory and categorizes the outcome of the session. Together we decide if the ideas are viable or not.
(4/6) Web design and prototyping
The information coming from the brainstorming session is the foundation for the prototypes.
Tigplant starts with creating a flowchart, which gives a good insight of how the navigation of the website looks and flows.
Then we make wireframes, which are simple drafts, without details, which visualize proportions between website elements and help to eliminate design flaws in an early stage, before there is any code or design involved.
Eventually Tigplant creates a visual protoype for a realistic impression of the website.
(5/6) Feedback on website prototypes
You give your feedback on the prototypes and if necessary, we will adjust the plans.
After approval of the plans, we continue with the final stage: the development of the website.
(6/6) Website development
The designs are complete, your content is ready and approved.
Now Tigplant starts building and coding the website.
You receive updates about the timeline and the progress of the development.
There will be some time reserved for testing and finishing of the website.
After deliverance of the website you receive an invoice.
