  • Plan Creation 
    • Based on your audit and research, create a plan for the refresh. This should include information architecture (how the site's pages will be organized and linked), a content strategy, a SEO strategy, and a rough idea of the new design.
  • Design
    • Start the design process with wireframes, which are basic sketches of each page's layout. Once approved, these can be turned into more detailed mockups, and then into a final design. The design should be responsive, ensuring it works well on all device sizes.
  • Development
  • Content
  • Testing
    • Once the website is built, it needs to be thoroughly tested. This should include functionality testing, usability testing, performance testing, and testing on a range of devices and browsers.
  • Deployment
    • After testing and final revisions, the website is ready to go live. This should be planned carefully to minimize downtime, and it's often done at a time of day when traffic is low.
