WEB DEVELOPMENT & NEW MEDIA
Design. Standards. Speed.


User Experience (UX)

Web design and development include key components to include graphic design, interface design, standard coding practices, user experience design, accessibility, and search engine optimization.


User Experience is related to layout and how well a user understands how they can interact with a site. The ease and access to accommodate as many users as possible, regardless of user skill.


New media pushes information which enables people around the world to share, comment on, and discuss a wide variety of topics. Blogs, websites, videos, games, and images all play a role in communication today.



Discover

Designers try to look at the world in a fresh way, noticing new things and seeking inspiration. They gather insights to develop an opinion about what they see, deciding what is new and interesting, and what will inspire new ideas. Here is where Market Research, User Research, and Planning and Design come in.

Define

This is the definition stage, where designers try to make sense of all the possibilities identified in the Discover phase. The goal is to develop a clear creative brief that frames the fundamental design challenge to the organization. Here we look at Project Development, Project Management, and Project completion timeframe.

Develop

The third part is where we develop solutions, prototype, test, and iterate. Trial and error help designers to improve and refine their ideas. Brainstorming, prototyping, visual management, and development methods are tested.

Deliver

The delivery stage is where the product is finalized and launched. Here, we do our Final Testing, Approval, Launch, and evaluate feedback.

Database Development


WordPress Hotel

Stage of development: Under Construction

Audience: Visitors to Lima who want to stay close to the airport

Purpose of sites: They needed an online booking capability and ability to immediately add/remove room availability hard coded in five languages

Challenges:

Hotel Melodia needed a re-design to include online booking with payment, Social Media and Google listings, including Maps.Their original website is outdated, non-responsive, and they rely on phone calls.

The research concluded they rely on their restaurant, conference center, weddings, and personal service, to all guests arriving from around the world. Flow charts and wireframes were made. Online booking was needed on the main page, and images and booking from each individual room choice gave visitors a choice to book from several places.They also wanted to show ads for their other hotels in Peru and needed several outlets for Social Media interactions.

Customization, database updates, immediate email notifications to the hotel and guest, Google Maps, Google Analytics, banners, Facebook, scrolling, booking, back up, fonts, SEO, custom photography and Photoshop, all help to ensure their business goals are attained.
