How To Create a Successful Website : The Definite Step-By-Step Guide

Before you sit down to start creating your new website, ask yourself very clearly exactly what it’s intended to achieve. Some sites are built with e-commerce in mind, others as an extension of a wider branding effort or as a call to action for people to contact you. The intention of the website has to play a part in every decision you make about its design. If you have a clear vision from the outset, you’ll be building on the firmest possible foundations… Your website has to be designed and built in such a manner that any visitors, once they clicked through to the site, will want to stay around and explore. Here are some of  the techniques you can use to ensure that your new website is a success.

OMdeSIGN agency designs and develops an innovative online platform for art lovers across the world

Exhi turned to London based web design agency OMdeSIGN to develop and launch an innovative online art-lovers platform

exhi-ipad

Exhi is a bold and innovative concept, created to offer a unique interactive portal to some of the world’s leading galleries, museums and exhibitions. The distinctive aspect of Exhi is that, with a few small exceptions, the reviews contained within the site will be written and uploaded by the users themselves. The aim of the site is to create a vibrant, accessible online community, created by and for art lovers and offering the chance for users to discover art recommended by people like them. Above all else the site needed to be accessible, fully responsive and visually appealing, showcasing the art in question and making it simple for users to interact across a variety of platforms and via all devices.

When creating a site centred upon the world of galleries, museums and art works, we realised that everything had to be built outward based upon the aesthetic of the site. We created that aesthetic by working from scratch and starting with the logo. It had to capture the ethos of the Exhi community, which is one of timeless elegance, taste and sophistication. As the demographic of art lovers is one which cuts across all age ranges the logo and subsequent branding needed to cut through to everyone who caught sight of it. To that end, it was designed to combine a clear and uncluttered sense of expertise with an obvious accessibility.

Once the logo was in place it was used as the foundation of the rest of the website. By using plenty of white space we created a site which provided the perfect backdrop for the art work and exhibitions under discussion. The other key demand was that the site be truly responsive, working just as effectively across the full range of mobile devices. Our team of experts ensured that this was the case, delivering an online presence which loads quickly and smoothly no matter how it is accessed, and which invites exploration and interaction.

The last point was the one which makes Exhi genuinely unique. It presents a view of the sometimes elitist art-world in which the ordinary gallery-goers are the stars of the show. The site is designed to encourage visitors to upload and access reviews opinions and recommendations. By making it easy to search and find by genre, artist or exhibition, Exhi will democratise the world of art and create a thriving and growing community of like-minded people. OmDesign made this possible by designing and building a site which could be used quickly and easily whilst on the move, and which has the capacity to grow and change as the Exhi community does.

Your Essential Checklist before launching your website.

In the excitement and rush to launch your new website it can be all too easy to overlook some very important things. Drawing on our extensive web design and development experience, we’ve compiled a simple at-a-glace checklist to help you optimise your website before you go live.

The design and build stage

Text font and size – ensure all text is clear and easy to read with good line spacings. Large text and plenty of white space works well on the web.

Contrast – today’s screens show up subtle differences in colour, so make sure your design and text complement each other and enable maximum clarity.

Consistency – this is vital across your entire site so that users don’t get confused or fed up. Consistency also makes you look professional. Buttons and links should be obvious, while headlines and sub-headlines should be consistent in style, size and colour.

Coming Soon – it’s a good idea to include a ‘Coming Soon’ page to encourage users to bookmark your site. But make sure it’s just as impactful and well designed as the rest of your site.
