Over the last 15 years, websites have become increasingly important for every kind of organisations. It’s now the cornerstone. Not only of your marketing activities, but of your whole business strategy.
At Enigma, website creation is one of our core expertise with over 100 projects. There have been big websites and one-page websites. There have been publicity websites and conversion websites.
We have encountered lots of tech. We have witnessed how Content Management Systems and component-based webdesign took over.
Usually when a website project starts, people create a huge word document and they put everything they want to do in their website inside the document and then this document goes around and everyone add a little feature into it. And it become something that is very difficult to eat, it's like sort of a big “mille feuilles” and, -thank you- the problem is, it's only the company's expectation and not the user need. And we always need to focus on the user and the way to do that is to do a user experience workshop.
So let's imagine: we have to build a website for James Bond, well this is quite easy because we know him, we know his job, we know what kind of drinks he likes, what kind of car he drives, we even know the kind of girls he likes. The thing is, usually people don't ask us to build website for James Bond.
And that's why we have to do user story workshops to try to get to know the users. We first start by doing persona then the user story and then we transform them into the wireframe. And to do all that, we put all the stakeholders in the same room: a designer, a user experience specialist, a coder and a strategist. We've run more than hundreds of those workshops and what is fantastic is every time the end result is surprising and different from what was planned. And that's because we start building website for the users needs and everyone agree on what's next do: that's because it's collaborative. But I think, that’s another video.
How we create websites
Of course, every client is unique. As should be every website. So we always start from scratch with every new project. However, we do follow our own website creation process which goes in a few steps.
- User story workshop
- Wireframes (functional webdesign)
- Visual webdesign
- Technical development
- Content integration
Website Creation Sprint
The whole process typically goes about 3 months. To go faster, we invented our Website Creation Sprint process. It allows for a release in under 4 to 6 weeks. It implies an intense involvement by the client, though:
- availability of the client’s project team
- fast-lane validation process
- content creation done in parallel with the design and technical stages
