Website Designers also work on the Search Engine Ranking Reports. It is important that SEO is included in their design works as this is what helps your website to rank in the search engine results. There is no point in having an aesthetically pleasing website if no one can find it. This is why it is important to work with a Web Design Gloucester company to ensure that all the elements you need inĀ  a website are designed correctly.

Working with the designer will initially start with a consultation where the client explains what they need and what are their objectives for the website. In turn the designer will begin by browsing websites that are relevant to the client’s business requirements, using a mockup version of the website in question. This allows the designer to get an idea of the look and feel that the final website will have.

Next, they will design the layout or user interface. They will focus on the key features and functionality of the pages of the website, such as the layout, the navigation and functional aspects of each page. A graphic designer will then create the images that will be used within the layout, and any additional artwork or visual images that will be displayed on the landing page, if any.
