æ Sub@omic's Web Design Process Step 3:
The next step in the web design process is for Sub@omic to develop, with you or your agency, your requirements into a design architecture that will deliver the desired user experience (UX) In so doing, we get to understand the scale of your ambition and arrive at a base page count from which we can generate a price proposal.
The importance of the Masterplan cannot be understated. It will be the project work upon which our price proposal will be based. Getting it wrong at this stage will only mothball problems towards the end of the project; costing you time, money and causing unnecessary friction.
Sub@omic's web design pricing is based upon the number of web pages we write (the page count) and the complexity of these pages.
The output of this project step is very often a sitemap and some wireframe illustrations, both of which will be incorporated into the body of the Design Solution Report. The sitemap may be a hierarchical display of the pages and databases required (similar to a company organisational chart) or the sitemap may explore the website in the form of a mindmap.
As the Masterplan will form the foundation of a contractual specification, we will always work to ensure that this plan is clearly and concisely understood by all parties involved.
Because Sub@omic designs and develops bespoke cognitive websites from scratch, each line of code is written by us by hand, therefore, it's practical for us to write as little code as possible. Guided by the user experience (UX) we're agreed upon, we'll try and write the least amount of pages possible. Even though our websites are simply more clickable, it's good practice to minimise the number of clicks a user is required to make in order to get where they want to be.
