At DWH we can pretty much do anything when it comes to design and marketing. By far the most common way we get to work with new clients is when they need a new website. Let’s face it, in marketing its often when a company is faced with a problem (like updating or designing a new website) that an agency is contacted.
Web Design Coventry
We’re web design experts and can build some fantastic sites quickly and for a competitive budget. During the design and build process we work closely with clients to ensure the site meets business needs now and in the future.
The process is straightforward and no matter your experience in marketing or working with websites we guarantee the process will be uncomplicated and deliver the results you want.
DWH Project Process – Web Design Coventry
We have a tried and tested project management process to ensure that the project runs smoothly for everybody:
This is where we sit down and discuss the requirements for the project. Some clients give us a written brief and some clients we just talk about the project and take it from there. For most sites the discussion is pretty straight forward – we’ve been doing this for a long time and we can build compelling sites from a verbal brief. Anything a little more complex (so for example if there is a requirement for e-commerce functionality) we normally like to have a written brief. But don’t worry – you can talk to us and we’ll write one for you!
Sometimes during our initial discussions, we will give you an indication of cost. Particularly if you have some things you might or might not include depending on the costs. We will always put our estimate in writing and won’t do anything until you have seen, understood and agreed to the estimate
The project plan
Every project has a plan. This is a basic outline of the key stages to deliver the project and an estimate of the time it will take. Again, from our initial meeting we will already have discussed this, but we will formerly write it down as part of the estimate.
Once you are happy with the costs, timings and scope of the work we begin
We give you some designs for how the new site could look, how the navigation will work, how any additional functionality (such as e-commerce) will work. Between us we agree the strongest design, make any amends and agree on the version to develop.
Copy & content
Very often clients have all the copy and content needed. We’re happy to edit this, tidy it and add to it to ensure it is presented in the best way to your audience. It’s much easier to make sure all the copy and content is agreed before the website is built.
We’ll develop a working site that brings the concept to life and shows how the site will work and perform. Once everyone is happy we can put all the content into the site.
It’s always worth spending some time fine tuning, editing and correcting content. Things often look different on the screen so this is an important stage of the process.
New site live
New site is made live on the web. We handle all the back-end work so from the client point of view it’s a straightforward process.
Websites will be found more easily by your customers if you add fresh content. Blogs and new product launches are a great way of doing this. We can write blogs, source images and load them onto your site for a small monthly fee. So even if you don’t have an established marketing team you can keep your site up to date and attractive for your customers.
Client case studies – Web Design Coventry
New responsive website for Cheshire-based event caterers
We were approached to create a brand-new responsive website for Benjamin Lauren. We quickly established that their existing site was unable to take full advantage of their vast library of images, as it did not respond very well on mobile and tablet devices. After seeing these photos, we wanted to create a website that would bring the shots to life and let the food do the talking.
Working closely with Lauren on the project scoping, sitemap and wireframes, we quickly established a framework upon which we could begin the design process. This initial collaboration made sure that everyone knew exactly what was expected and helped the entire project to run smoothly.
The new site was designed and built in-house, which resulted in a fast turnaround time between receiving the brief and pushing the website live. The result is a fully responsive website which showcases Benjamin Lauren's event catering expertise, creating locally-sourced dishes that would leave a lasting impression at any event.
Responsive design for Coventry-based structural steelworkers
Trading since 1995, Steel Construction Ltd specialise in the design, construction and installation of quality structural steelwork for mainframe and secondary steelwork projects.
We were approached to create a brand-new responsive website for SCL. They also required a client FTP area to allow their customers the ability to upload and share blueprints and 3D renders directly with SCL.
Working with our web development partners, we designed and developed a brand-new website that retained their existing branding whilst bringing their overall look and feel up to date.
