Headless Website Development
Cutting edge websites that deliver for you, your customers, and search engines
Headless Websites are trending right now and rightfully so. It gives you the flexibility to design robust and elegant websites without compromising security and speed. We can ensure strong security with the flexibility to design dynamic or static websites using Gatsby or Next.js and with CMS including Sanity, Strapi, Prismic, Bloomreach, WordPress and others.
We've included some of the technologies we work with below, this is not an exhaustive list as we are comfortable working with most technologies in this area.
From development to marketing, we help you build your business and amaze your customers.
Discovery & Planning
The discovery and planning phase focuses on finding out about the current situation, this will include the current web presence, business and business structure, and the current customer acquisition process. We also run analysis tools as well as reviewing analytics to ensure we have a full picture of what is happening. We will also review competitors in their approaches to the market.
Sitemap & Wireframe Creation
Once we have analysed the current situation we will start building the sitemap including page structure. We will review this site map with you, building out a clear structure, at this point we will review development timeframes based on the complexity of the structure.After the site map is confirmed, we will progress on to building wireframes for the main pages. These will give you a clearer concept of page structure, and we can check the page elements are in the right order, and whether we need to add or remove elements to a page.
Once the site map and wireframes have been agreed we will start populating wireframes, building out a full design, and prototyping the website. The wireframes will be populated with imagery and dummy content, and prototyping will give an indication of flow and user experience.
Using Figma you will be able to see the progression of the designs as they are built out, feedback is vital for us during this phase, with regular meetings and the ability to make comments through Figma directly on the designs.
With all the work from the previous three phases, we will have a clear plan for the development of the site. Throughout the development, we continually check coding quality with software such as Sitebulb, Sort Site and W3C checks. During the early stages of development, there might not be much to see, but as the site starts to come together, we will have a staging environment for you to review.
QA & Testing
Although there will be continually reviewing the code during development, as we near the end of the development phase our QA and testing department will start reviewing the code and design, ensuring both structure and quality of coding is exemplary.
We will also work with you, utilising tools such as BugHerd to enable us to work together ensuring every element of the website is ready for launch.
Launch & Post Launch Support
Once everything is complete, we can work through the deployment of the new site. Whether it is through our hosting or your own, we will help you with the configuration of the DNS, and ensure that the transition is smooth. Once the new site is live, we will test everything to ensure it is working as expected. After deployment, we will be there to help you through the early stages, whether it is bug fixes or training on the system, we will ensure you have everything to get off to an amazing start.
