Website development process

We accepted the challenge to develop a high performance, standout and contemporary website for this all-inclusive Managed IT Service provider. We also took care of mobile users and adapted the website to mobile devices so they could browse the site as comfortably as desktop users.

We brought all needed information to the forefront so users wouldn’t get lost in space and time on the site. First and foremost, we discussed in detail and highlighted the website’s purpose and thought through all the elements to achieve a good user experience. The next stage was prototype designing of the homepage and when the client approved it, we worked out the rest of web pages. Direct Line Development is scrupulous about all the project stages. As far as the website, it is lightweighted and includes 7 unique pages that we sent to our client for approval. The client gave the thumbs-up and our design team stuck to their displays designing mockups with client’s suggestions in mind.

The process of website design

Let’s take a closer look at the web design features.

Our team of professionals designed 2 off the wall homepage mockups.

First design version for Onward Techology SolutionsSecond web design version for Onward Techology Solutions

The first mockup included an interacting background where when mousing over the website page the pointer was flashlighted. All key information about services was placed to the homepage to reduce user search time. A simple structure and clear navigation make it easier.

The second mockup had subtle motion logo of the company. And all needed information was placed on the homepage as well so users could find it without leaving the page. Our designers shook up design with animated service icons.

We sent those mockups to our client and he liked both which made it hard to choose. We decided to help him and combined them. As the result, when you visit the website, the first thing you see is the animated company’s logo with the interacting background.

A subtle and smooth animation for every block adds to the website ambiance liveliness. It improves user experience and helps highlight the proper things.

The website’s color scheme was taken from company’s logo. These sharp colors represent the style of the company and showcase that they are dead set.on business they do.

This was such a fun project, everyone who goes to this website always comments on the interactive background and just the simplicity of the motion as the menu pops on the screen!

Well done on this design! The animated logo layered over the interactive background will definitely keep visitors engaged.

I love how simple yet complex this site is. The user flow is so straightforward in the sense that I always know how to get where I need to and yet at the same it is beautifully complex in its design of background motion and the logo experience.

This is always a fun project to show to our future clients. Most companies love the way the logo comes up and how clean the Design is. Once you get passed the logo it's extremely easy to navigate and find the information users are looking for. Great Job Direct Line Dev!!

An impressive design would be an understatement! The combination of elegance and complexity makes me coming back again and again.

User experience is definitely changing the game. People nowadays get impatient and expect a lot more our of their web experience. Nice website!
