The client wanted a website to launch alongside their new business; Northcote Hair Salon. As the business was being launched relatively soon, Nikita insisted that speed was required to produce a clean, professional-looking website with the capacity to be expanded upon later down the line with things such as a gallery to display their work once open. Online visibility was also a high-ranking factor, so SEO along with search engine directory submissions was also a must-have for the project.
First, we consulted Nikita on the kind of website she would like for her company. It was to be a single-page website with an eye-catching landing page, an “About Us” section with some brief details about the salon, followed up by a list of services and finished off with a contact information section. We immediately began working on wireframing the particular sections and sent the initial design off for approval. Once acquired, we then set to work building the website, ensuring from the start that “responsive design” was at the forefront of the process. After the initial build, we uploaded it to a test server so Nikita could view the progress in real time, explaining things she wanted added, removed or changed and updating accordingly. This project was a dream to work on, with a very responsive client who communicated her needs clearly and was rapid with any questions or requests we asked of her leading to a very quick turnaround for the construction.
Finally, once the site was ready we scanned through the code and images, optimising where we could. We launched it just before the business opened and Nikita was already receiving emails from potential clients, speaking volumes about the visibility of the website and how easy it is for clients to reach Nikita. Once again, working alongside Nikita was great fun and we hope to work again with her in the future.
