Website development process from the ground up

Creating a website is not often a big deal in these days. Build a GOOD or THE BEST website is. Because of many available tools, that help you make a website even for free, you may think it is about making it look nice and you are done. But it is not the end of the story.

What does a GOOD website mean?

Such a website has a lot of things a developer needs to take care of.

It has to be searchable

In other words, it must have a good SEO (Search Engine Optimization). It is made sure by right semantics, correct cascade of HTML tags, its headings, paragraphs, by correct use of these tags. For that, a website also needs finely written texts, described images.

Loading speed

A website has to have as little resources as it can. Resources are website's images, analytic tools, scripts, styles. In other words, it is everything you see and even don't see on a website and every single one lowers a final speed.

Following trends

Trends of making websites shift too often for any general tool to follow it. Good websites follow them when they are created.


These websites are prepared by experts on people's behavior. UX (user experience) and UI (user interface) are slightly different in reality and always work together. A website has purpose like purchasing a product, contacting your company or just anything you need from your web. UX and UI ensure, that every element on a website is in the exact position to lead a visitor to your goal.

Any of these points are not more or less important and follow them makes a website GOOD but also not useless.

Our colleges from Profit Visions Web has recently made such website and we show you the process in few screenshots and descriptions.

Development of Blue Fjord website

This website was remake of the original one, but we took it from the beginning. The reason was for the restaurant's complete change of style and needs for different goals.

A new goal was for visitors to find info about events in the restaurant. A secondary goal is to make reservations and find a way to it.

First, we simply drafted sections of the website on a piece of paper laying on the table. It was good enough. First of all, the website have to say what is going on, what it is all about. After that is a perfect place for upcoming events and one section after is a map and reservation, which a visitor finds easily as well and by that, the second goal is accomplished.

After it was clear it is the right layout, a more technical, detailed and better looking wireframe. The wireframe was a subject for the client to check out.

Within these two steps is accomplished successful User Experience - visitors are served a content to easily and quickly get where we want them.

Graphic design created after made it even more clear and that is the UI thing. Even graphics alone makes a visitor to understand what is going on. It is perfectly understood what is a booking form, where to find the restaurant. Every line, every symbol is used with caution.

In summary

All this takes effort, lots of it, actually. And the effort is not for free, or even cheap. It is for a reason to make those GOOD and BEST websites, which are not made to lay plank on the internet.

Even it is not simple and requires sitting quietly and thinking for hours, though, we build these websites within a week. Realized quickly and perfectly.
