10 steps to redesign your website?
Imagine your website as the digital front door to your business. It's the first thing your potential customers see when they come knocking, and it's a reflection of your brand, your values, and your commitment to providing a seamless online experience. But what happens when that front door starts to look a little weathered, the handle a bit loose, or the welcome mat worn out?
That's where the website redesign process comes into play. Just like giving your physical storefront a fresh coat of paint or a modern makeover, a website redesign is your opportunity to breathe new life into your online presence.

In this guide, we'll walk you through the different stages of the website redesign process to help you understand what to expect when working with VIVI Creative.
Stage 1: Initial Consultation
The journey begins with an initial consultation. This is where we get to know you, your business, and your goals. We'll discuss your current website, what's working, what isn't, and your vision for the new site. It's essential to share your objectives, target audience, and any specific features or functionalities you desire.
Stage 2: Research and Analysis
Once we have a clear understanding of your needs, we dive into research and analysis. This phase involves competitive analysis, audience research, and a comprehensive review of your existing website's performance. We identify what's working well and pinpoint areas for improvement.
Stage 3: Planning and Strategy
Based on our findings, we create a detailed plan and strategy for your website redesign. This includes defining the site's structure, user experience, content strategy, and visual design. We'll also establish key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure the success of the project.
Stage 4: Design and Mockups
With a solid strategy in place, we move on to the design phase. Our talented design team crafts mockups and prototypes to give you a visual representation of the new website's layout, typography, colour schemes, and overall aesthetics. We encourage your feedback to ensure the design aligns with your vision.
Stage 5: Development and Coding
Once the design is approved, our development team takes over. They turn the design into a functional website using the latest web technologies. During this phase, we pay special attention to mobile responsiveness, page load speed, and overall website performance.
Stage 6: Content Creation and Integration
Quality content is king in the online world. We work closely with you to create and optimise engaging, SEO-friendly content. This may involve rewriting existing content, adding new pages, or integrating a content management system (CMS) for easy content updates.
Stage 7: Testing and Quality Assurance
Before launching your new website, we conduct rigorous testing to ensure everything functions flawlessly. This includes compatibility checks across different browsers and devices, security audits, and performance testing. We fix any issues that arise during this phase.
Stage 8: Launch and Deployment
The big day has arrived! We launch your redesigned website, making it live for the world to see. Our team ensures a seamless transition from the old site to the new one, and we monitor its performance closely during the initial days post-launch.
Stage 9: Post-Launch Support and Maintenance
Our commitment doesn't end with the launch. We provide ongoing support and maintenance to keep your website running smoothly. This includes security updates, content updates, and addressing any unforeseen issues promptly.
Stage 10: Performance Monitoring and Optimisation
We continually monitor your website's performance, using analytics tools to track user behavior and engagement. This data helps us make informed decisions to optimize your site further and ensure it aligns with your evolving business goals.
Embarking on a website redesign journey can be both exciting and rewarding.
