Smart web design process
We build outstanding web designs since 2008
Ecommerce Design Process
Where does successful web design start? As any other project, web design should begin with a step-by-step plan. If you go directly to the design itself without the prework, the whole project risks failing. Make all the details and responsibilities clear from the beginning and avoid missing deadlines, raising costs and declining results. Web design is more than creating an appealing interface. It consists of brainstorming ideas, researching the market and competitors, designing information architecture, creating wireframes, building a prototype and then assembling it all together to get the best result.
The BelVG team does not leave goals unattended. We always make sure to set up a clear project vision before moving forward. A concrete plan and the scope of work definition are the key points of our design strategy to prevent unexpected issues that may influence the budget and deadlines in the future. The BelVG team cares about the clients and their websites and delivers design solutions that attract and boost visitor-to-customer conversions.

#5 Interactive Prototypes
How can you be sure that a website will work well with the new design? Here you need interactive prototypes to test the existing functionality with the new interface. Our web designers understand that a prototype allows a business owner to see in advance how the final product will look. There are lots of reasons why interactive prototypes are a must: it helps designers and business owners to agree what is in and out of scope, to think over the investment and to test ideas regarding structure and layout of the future website. The BelVG team uses interactive prototypes to let a website work the way a business owner needs. Our designers will run a website through a few rounds of testing until it is clear that everything works just right and it is time to go to the next web design stage.
