Our Ottawa Website Design Process in a Nutshell

Regardless of business size, Creative Designs will create a professional and unique website that gets results and boosts your sales.


We need to know what your goals are in order to design and develop a website that is going to accomplish your goals. At this stage, we analyze your needs to deliver a website that accomplishes all of your objectives within your budget and time frame.

We consider such things as:

  • Your industry and target audience/demographic;
  • The functionality you require in your website;
  • Features and applications that can save you time, improve efficiency and boost sales.

The analysis process helps us determine how to design and develop an effective, affordable, attractive & functional website for your business.

Website Fundamentals

We begin the story board process and sketch out the overall design of your website. This is the nuts and bolts of the design process that takes your website page content, images, logo, colour scheme, and important functionality and converts it into a stunning and clear digital representation of your business. This layout is then turned into a prototype for you to review and provide us with feedback.

In order to develop your website efficiently, it is best to provide us with web-ready content for your website.

Website Prototype Design

After analyzing your needs and developing a complete outline of the functionality for the website, including navigation, pages, and specifications we develop the website structure, navigation, pages, and other requested content. After completing the prototype design, we will upload the website to an online link so that you can view the website in action.

Coding and Development

Working with the initial prototype, our expert website developers will create the complete website for a beta release. At this point we will add any additional requested features and search engine optimize your website.

Testing and Bug Fixing

Testing of the website functions including load time, navigation, and compatibility is an important process contributing to the success of your website. We will fix any bugs we find and make any last minute corrections and changes as requested.

Official Launch of the Website

Once the website has been completed and tested by our team, we are ready to make your website live. At this point your new website will be uploaded to your hosting account and will be available to the world. Now you can promote your website and start increasing your client base, promoting your services and products as well as providing information to your current clients.

Promotion and Marketing

Everyday more than 500 million searches are made through search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo. We provide you with a search engine optimized website with Google Analytics statistical tracking software to monitor your website's performance. Additionally, we can assist you with submitting your website to search engines, blogs, forums, and online directories.

If you are looking to get the most out of your website then you should consider our search engine optimization and search engine marketing services. We offer our clients cutting edge techniques, strategies, and decades of experience to increase their daily traffic and position their websites where they will receive the most exposure and search engine visibility.

Maintenance and Updating

Like all cycles and processes in business, website design and development is an ongoing process that requires maintenance and renovations as technology and marketing strategies change. Once your initial website is online, you should create a plan for regular updates and maintenance to keep your website looking fresh and to take advantage of the latest technologies.

We are committed to providing ongoing support and maintenance to our clients ensuring the continued success of their websites and businesses. We offer monthly maintenance packages as well as website maintenance and updates billed at our hourly rate.
