Our Web Design Process
We collaborate with each client to define the scope of the project and explore the client’s vision and goals. A project creative brief is then completed with the client to offer additional insight to the user experience (UX) design team. A usability review related to user personas, audience, workflow information architecture (IA) and navigational structure analysis are all part of our discovery process.
Custom Web Design
KAINOTOMO offers 1-3 custom graphic user interfaces (GUIs) developed by our award-winning user experience team. Designers draw inspiration from the client’s logo, color palette, mission, vision, and comments from the creative brief, research, meetings and years of industry experience.
Web Development / Content Integration
Once the user interface is approved, KAINOTOMO begins building the custom responsive website using mobile first development techniques. Content supplied by the client, or from our professional copywriting team is then integrated into the website. Additional functionality and customizations are implemented at this time, including jQuery animation, dropdown menus, interactive photo galleries, Joomla! and more. A fully functional demo is sent to the client for review at the end of this process.
Site Enhancements & Beta Testing
KAINOTOMO continues to work closely with the client to make enhancements to the content layout and site structure. We also engage in extensive beta testing and editing throughout this phase to ensure all functionality is meeting our high level of performance. We benchmark all of our new websites with Lighthouse.
Final Review and Website Launch
Client completes a final review and approves the website for public launch. KAINOTOMO employs the latest search engine optimization techniques to ensure top rankings.
