Our project managers share tips for a smooth web design.

Starting a web design project can be a daunting task.

Here are some top tips from our project managers as you embark on your DC web design journey.

A fresh DC web design can be a great way to clean house.

Look through your current site and see if there is any content that is obsolete or needs revising. Start by thinking about your organization as it currently is, and where you’re looking to grow.  Once you have considered what’s changed since you last revisited your website content, create a list of obsolete pages, or any content that does not align with that mission, to help create a clean slate and to ensure your digital strategy is clear and consistent.

Have open lines of communication about key deadlines for your DC web design project needs.

Project Managers are here to help ensure your project runs smoothly, and that includes meeting deadlines for key dates.  Whether it is a mockup, a beta site, or a hard launch date, keep us in the loop, and we will work with you to make sure we hit target dates for your website redesign launch!

Make sure to reach out if any web design terms or requests are confusing.

Do you like parallax images? Negative space? Need a taxonomy? Don’t worry if you don’t understand these terms. We are here to show you examples and guide you through the redesign process, and it’s our job to clearly communicate each piece of the website redesign to you in a way that you understand.

Try to keep your team relatively small when it comes to web design feedback.

There is no worse feeling for our clients than when the design stage of the project is nearing completion… only to have more people suddenly get involved and have differing opinions. Keep your stakeholders in the loop but try not to get the whole office involved for a more streamlined (and less frustrating) design experience.

Look for web design inspiration that is relevant to your needs.

The design stage is exciting, but it can be hard to communicate the exact style you’re looking for. Feeling stuck? You don’t have to love an entire website to like certain elements. Be on the lookout for segments that inspire you. And don’t forget to ask for help! For example, if you’re a law firm, we can suggest looking at consulting firms, accounting firms, or other professionals in a similar field to help you find a design that suits your aesthetic, as well as your content.

At the end of the day, communication is the key to successful DC website design projects.

Our team is here to help you build the site your team dreams of. We’ll guide you through the process, step by step and phase by phase, so that your project comes together quickly and seamlessly.
