Your Questions – Answered.

While every design project is unique to the client, there are three ways that we estimate a project’s length:

  • The amount of design work that must be planned and completed for your site.
  • Current workload and client base of our design team.
  • The amount of feedback, revisions, and more that are required.

Depending on the unique elements that your site may require, your new website may take anywhere from 6-10 weeks for full development. For sites that utilize eCommerce functionality and membership access, the process may take longer to implement.

Sideways Designs will work closely with you to develop a timeline and estimated cost for your project during our audit and planning process.

Every design process is unique and tailored to the needs of each client and website. Want to see more, and find out how we can bring your site to life? Contact our team today to learn more about our design process.

The Four Phases of Website Design

  • Definition

    Sideways Designs believes that a complete comprehension of your business model and distinct circumstances is the first step in creating a successful website. We work closely with you to determine your objectives and goals so that we can design a website that is precisely what you need.

  • Design

    We will continue to work closely with you as we start the initial design and layout of your website. We will then meet with you – in person or over the phone – to evaluate the design of your site. Once we obtain your approval of the preliminary design, we will then move forward to the development phase, implementing any alterations you might have to the design in the process.

  • Development

    Once you have approved the design, we will create the back-end of your website. This is where our extensive expertise comes into play. We will develop all the functionality and programming required to maximize your website’s benefit to your organization.

  • Deployment

    We will then have a final meeting with you – in person or over the phone – to review the final design and functionality of your website. Once we have obtained your authorization, we will launch your site so that it is live on the Web.

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Shopping for a Website

It’s important to have an idea of what you are looking for in a website before you start looking around for a web design company. Knowing what to ask for will help you to avoid unwelcome surprises in the future. Regardless if you are tech-challenged or tech-savvy, ask yourself the questions below to help determine what you would like the finished website to feature:

  • Site Functionality

    What kinds of widgets, tools or special functionality will I need my website to feature?

  • Content Management

    Will I be capable of editing my own website, and if so, will I need the ability to directly edit it myself?

  • Domain Name

    Have I registered for the domain name yet (i.e.

  • Customer Interaction

    If there is a level of customer interaction needed, how much and how do you envision this working for these potential customers?

  • Ecommerce

    Will I be selling a product or service?

  • Site Inspiration

    Are there existing websites that have design features or functionality that I would like my site to be inspired by?

Planning and Budgeting

Remember that websites may be developed in stages. You might desire the fully functional website with loads of bells and whistles, but you might initially only be able to afford the basics. That’s not a problem, and it also offers a good opportunity for you to weigh your wants versus. your needs. It’s a good idea to make a short list determining what you can live without for the time being before contacting a web design company. Features can always be added and upgraded down the road when there is more revenue available.

Moving Forward

The next step is to contact Sideways Designs so that we can work with you to figure out what your goals are and how much time would need to be scheduled to develop your website. We will then use this information to present you with a proposal. We will also present you with helpful feedback and a timeline you can use to estimate the turnaround time on your new website.

Already have a website and wondering if it’s time to consider an overhaul?

There are plenty of reasons why it might make sense to consider redesigning your site: your site isn’t mobile or tablet friendly, the content isn’t updated or relevant, the interface isn’t easy to use, you can’t update your own content, you’d like to attract more visitors, or other reasons.
