Our Website Design and Development Process

When creating websites we like to keep things simple at Dark Matter Digital. We work closely with you or your marketing team to develop a full specification including functionality to make sure your new website delivers. We go over your sitemap, migration plan (if you have an existing website).

Following sign-off, we dig into designing your website into multiple concept designs and send over to you and your team for feedback. Once a final design is agreed upon, we move to developing the reminder of your website.

With designs approved, we begin to develop your website on a temporary domain name. This allows you to visit the domain, view and interact with your website during the development process. This process comes in handy down the road of testing site specific functions and elements such as databases, portals and other app integrations.

We work closely with you during this entire process, explaining the technologies we are implementing and why. Following this, a rigorous 2-layer revision process - one with another team within Dark Matter Digital, and the second is your review.

Once revisions are completed, we are ready to launch your website. Integrating the best tracking tools to monitor your site post-launch performance and effective measure your KPI's.

Dark Matter Digital services web design

We've created a lot..... and we mean a lot of websites over the years. One thing that they all have in common, is that they are 100% bespoke to our clients. We do not use templates, recycle materials, or use stock imagery and that every business has downloaded as part of their Adobe Stock subscription. We work with you to truly understand your.business and deliver a product that will be truly bespoke to your business and its unique offerings.

We aren't the type of agency that sticks to one platform. Years ago, we learned that a narrow focus on one or two platforms limits the potential for your website. During our initial conversations we will discuss your interactiveness with your website, overhead budget for plugins, maintenance, hosting and more to recommend a unique platform for your needs. All of our recommend platforms have amazing content management systems (CMS) - which as the owner makes it extremely easy to make updates to your site at anytime. No more paying agencies to swap out some images or update your business hours.

Custom, bespoke website development

If you are in need of a custom solution for your business, our full stack developers can handle it. Whether you are looking for a custom customer portal, client database, specific automation or even an app for your cryptocurrency, our development team constructs in technologies such as Vue.js, React and Laravel.

Having a problem, looking for an extremely complex integration, or a crazy will brief? No worries, we love a challenge. 😏

Frequently asked questions about web development:

How much do you charge to build a website?

There's not one single answer to this question. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components; we design and develop custom websites specifically for your business. We'll ask a lot of questions, assess your needs, and give you a price quote based on that assessment. Our smallest projects require a minimum budget of at least $1500. Please book a call or fill out the quote request form to get the process started!
To get a better understanding, we recently wrote a blog article outlining how much a website should cost in 2022.

Will you maintain our website for us?

We can absolutely help maintain your website for you! If you host your website with us, we include 1.5hrs per month in website maintenance time which will cover minor changes if necessary. We provide website maintenance services to some of our clients but not all; the choice is all yours! You can also contact us down the road for website changes or updates and we will provide a quote for the scope of the work.

Will my website be mobile-friendly?

100% absolutely! Having a mobile friendly website is required nowadays. A website that is not mobile-friendly will result in poor SEO rankings. As an agency that also specializes in search engine optimization, we develop all of our website with a SEO focus.

Which CMS platforms do you work with?

In short, all. During our consultation process, we get a sense of what your specific needs are from your website. We consider ease of use for you or your office staff to update products, make minor changes if wanted and more. This will have an impact on the CMS platform that works best for you.

However, our main platforms that we use 95% of the time are: Wordpress, Webflow, Shopify, Drupal and Magento.

What is the difference between UI and UX?

Unfortunately, these two terms are frequently mistaken as interchangeable ways to refer to the customer-facing design of a website. However, this is not the case as there are some distinct differences between these two practices. While both UI (user interface) and UX (user experience) impact the way a customer experiences your site, UI manages the more obvious design elements and presentation of the pages - similar to your brand strategy. UX, on the other hand, looks at how visitors interact with your site and how easy it is for them to perform certain actions. Clearly, UI and UX are closely linked but these subtle differences in responsibilities are notable.

What is a website audit?

In general, a website audit can mean a lot of different things depending on who you are working with. But at Dark Matter Digital, a website audit is a complete, comprehensive review of all the elements that construct your site and corresponding solutions. From the framework and page load speeds to the design of your site, our web developers and marketing team looks at every single detail - what works and what does not. Assessing your website at this level allows us to determine the changes that need to be made to improve the experience for your visitors, which ultimately helps to increase the ROI of your website. Who doesn't want that?

What is the difference between website design and development?

As an Orlando web design and development agency, we understand that through web design and development are very closely linked, working together strategically to deliver a functional website, they are very different in their efforts. First, web development is focused on building a site using coding languages - HTML, CSS, Javascript and more. This is sort of like the skeleton of a website for the business. In contrast, website design makes the site visually and tactfully appealing through the creative process executed by our expert graphic designers. This is the appearance "skin" of the website.
