Overview

In Phase 3 of the Client’s Guide to the Web Design Process, we cover the “Design” phase. In this phase, you will learn the why and how behind each step in designing a website.

From the client’s perspective, there isn’t a ton of work to do during this phase. Your main job will be to review your web designers work and provide feedback. However, before your website can be designed, you should make sure your designer is following a professional process. This will increase the likelihood of a successful website build.

In this section, we’ll show you where you can find resources for web design inspiration so you can communicate with your designer what you want. We’ll also break down why your designer needs to provide you with a web design brief and website wireframes. Finally, we’ll cover best practices for common web pages and give you a roadmap to brainstorm content for your website.
