Designing and producing custom HTML websites is a Chromatic Path specialty. Every project begins with industry and product research to ensure that the end user receives a pleasant and useful experience while on the site. However, the most significant aspect of a Chromatic Path HTML website is that it is focused on achieving goals – sell product, sell a service and collect data from the visitor. Without those three key items a site is simply stagnant.
This particular project was created specifically for the owner of the business, implemented original icons that were also commissioned, utilized YouTube video and performed scheduling features that were automatically synced with all the employees and clients.
Every project here at Chromatic Path begins with pencil on paper. Only after exercising a few creative colors, shapes and designs can we introduce a visual for client presentations. A couple hours of research, a half hour with a client can help, but often times a client can envision there needs or wants. Chromatic Path can facilitate the rest with a few concept sketches and one low resolution color concept. With a few matching inside pages designed to determine navigation desires or issues, implementing new ideas for the user interface is simple. Adding video, ad space, animations(FLASH), special features(HTML or JAVA) or any creative idea becomes easy for everyone to visualize.
The first step in the HTML production stage is making sure that all the pages have been approved, all the special features have been planned and that the site map has been finalized. Below is a sample of an original site map designed specifically for one client. It reveals how a visitor to the site will interact with pages and features throughout the HTML website.
The key to saving time and money is to make sure that all features have been reviewed and approved before production begins. Adding special features and making revisions during the production stage can double the cost of a site. Making revisions to the design during the production stage can triple the cost. Revisions require time, therefore add cost.
