Before we begin any project, we carry out an in-depth research on the kind of industry client runs/works-for and focus on understanding our client’s goals to guide us in developing the most original, functional and cost effective design solutions.
Our Design Process involves the following key steps:
1| Start of the project
AAN works closely with each client to define the primary parameters of the project, to identify the targeted audience and to tailor the solution to a specific industry.
AAN gathers some data from the client, the Internet and other sources to become familiar with the company's products, range of services and competition. We also research the potential technological difficulties and limitations.
In this phase, we design an abstract model of the site which includes: Structure, Look and Feel, Content Architecture, Layout, and Functionality. The client reviews the model to approve the design and acknowledges the designer incase of any major changes he/she desires in the production like color theme change, structure etc. Once the abstract model has been approved and Production phase has been commenced any major changes will be charged separately.
After signing off the design concept, we initialize full development of the website. Graphic design and contents implementation of major functional elements such as search engines for example takes place during this phase.
5| Testing & Implementation
We test the site / templates on common browsers such as Internet Explorer 7+ and Firefox 3+, and if necessary, make minor changes. Client takes a look of his/her project on AAN Server first. Once the final payment has been made, we upload the project onto the client’s server and perform usability and functionality testing followed by the commercial launch of the site.
6| The work is ready
We don't stop here. After the site is fully functional, we provide complete support to our clients including improvements with the latest technologies and any required updates for an affordable monthly fee.
