Service: Custom E-commerce Design & Development

It all starts with design

Your e-commerce website is the first impression people see of your company and products,

A well-designed website does more than just look good. It conveys to your users a sense of professionalism and dedication to promoting an image that is in line with your brand. You wouldn't have a storefront that was dated and hard to navigate or else customers wouldn't buy anything. The same is true with your website and as the world wide web matures, this is becoming more and more important.

Our e-commerce website design process is simple. We start with a blank canvas. We meet with you to learn about you and your business. We discuss your branding consistencies, between print and digital mediums. Once we have a better understanding of your brand and vision we start the visual design of your new website. This is either a static mockup design, showing how your site will look on a variety of screen sizes, or an interactive visual mockup using a very cool user-experience platform. At A3 Creative Solutions, we take pride in creating custom, beautiful, e-commerce websites that are clean, responsive to work on all devices, and user-friendly. Our process focuses on the user while satisfying your business needs and objectives. Whether you are building a simple 5-page website, an e-commerce site, or an online magazine, your company needs an intuitive, informative, and efficient website. Our complete package of web design and web development services cover everything from the initial planning, to search engine optimization, to final implementation and testing, making your website equally valuable for your visitors and your company.

Our initial consultations are always complimentary. During the initial discovery session, we'll get to know your tastes and likes, and discuss our process with you.

    Creative Design

    Our e-commerce platforms are rooted in brand and digital strategies that drive e-commerce through culture and storytelling. Our focus on creating a more human ‘path to purchase’ provides an honest base for our experiences that drive results.

    We utilize an amazing wire-framing tool for lo-fidelity and hi-fidelity prototyping through to production. Our UX / UI design process is focused on the customer experience ensuring that every interaction reflects your brand and delivers greater value.

    The function of development isn’t simply to ‘make things work’. We design alongside development, resulting in a better user experience, which is at the forefront of our ambition in everything we create.

    Development

    After your website page designs have been approved and content has been received, we will start on the development and coding of your new website. We only utilize the latest modern framework and ensure that W3C standards are met. During each stage of the development process, we will ensure that we are testing, and re-testing your websites responsive design on all major devices. Furthermore, we will integrate all modern organic SEO standards.

    Search Engine Optimization

    We spend a great deal of time making sure your website is Search Engine Optimized (SEO). From Schema Markup to Google Page Speed insights, we ensure your new website is fully optimized for amazing organic search. Furthermore, we create each page on your website semantically and properly organized for accessibility and www standards.

    Go Live

    Right before Go-Live, we will ensure all pages are proofed and tested on all devices and integrate your staging website into a production-ready environment. Our team will finalize the hosting solution integration and test all necessary workflows. Furthermore, we will integrate all post-go-live Search Engine integrations (i.e. Google Analytics, Bing, etc.)

    When we partner with you, we team up for the long term. From UX enhancements, to design updates and bug fixes, we continue the relationship long after launch. The work is never done.

    Typically all of our website plans include training for your team. We want to ensure you feel confident and know how to use your new website's administration area.
