Exceptional websites start with Lithium intimately understanding your requirements; there are no shortcuts for genuinely knowing your business and the ultimate goal for your website.

Once we have mastered what you need, it is time to start mapping out how we are going to make it happen. We will map out the structure of your site, defining cover pages, indexes, sections and pages including their flow and relationship to each other. We will create a living breathing document (functional specification) that sets out in detail the things your site must do, how it will do them and how we will monitor what it does.

This document will include an SEO framework for keywords and phrases to be used throughout your site so that you organically rank on Google as best as possible.

We will get our creative ideas flowing which results in us quickly mocking-up your site, often referred to a wireframe. Choices about page layout, font type, size and colour palettes are usually already settled as completed as part of a brand guideline document we produce for you. We will research, test and identify what works best to communicate your website’s goals to your chosen audience.

We will review the wireframe with you and refine it before committing to the full build and until we have your approval.
