While each project is unique, each project has a set of things and processes that are part of the designer’s workflow. This guide prepare with help of many web development company and it can help you manage projects,workflows, assign tasks among team members, and ensure that everything is done before a design project is handed over.
A good design list can help you not get lost in a project. This article talks about whether you have such a design list when designing a web page ?
Things you should consider when designing a web page
1. Why do you need a list?
Part of a good designer workflow includes rhythm and order. A list is a good reminder. I actually created a custom list for each project. It always contains the following information:
- Project deliverable and scope
- Delivery deadline
- Additional cost, design add-ons, etc.
- On going tasks, what you will do when the project is completed
- Payment information and payment schedule
This is just the basic element of my small list. Here are some other types of design lists to let you know what you are doing and what you are going to do. For a success of web development company, a proper planning list and web development checklist is must be in hand.
2. Customer and project plan list
Every project must start somewhere. The planning phase is one of the most important parts of the beginning. To fully understand the scope of the project, customers need it. You need to ask the following questions:
- What is the scope of this project? What parts does it include?
- Who is the expected audience?
- What is the deadline?
- What parts of the current design?
- Is the content ready? Still need to create?
The real goal here is to make sure you understand your customers’ needs accurately. Is it a website design or a complete branded package? When do they want it? Getting answers to these questions in the early stages will make project development easier.

Preparation of documents:

- Did you remove extra text, fonts, and colors from the file?
- Are all images and other design elements connected correctly?
- Is your file type required by the printer?

Network and digital design projects require a complete list. The list includes some basic ideas about the content, features, and performance you need to communicate with your customers.
