Requirements Definition


We will work with you to identify what your business or organisation needs the website to do.  We want to understand your aims and requirements, your likes and dislikes, your must-haves and your nice-to-haves.

It is well worth you having a think about all this and more before we come to see you.  The things we will discuss include:

  • The nature of your organisation
  • Your primary audience
  • The message you want to get across
  • Your image or style
  • Colour themes
  • Your logo and tagline
  • Other sites you like and why
  • Other sites you don't like and why
  • How often the site will change
  • How much control you want over the content of the site
  • How much space your site will need
  • Whether you have a domain name already
  • Whether you have a hosting agreement already
  • Site navigation
  • Functions and features
  • Graphics, photos and video


In many ways the requirements definition part of the website design process is the most important.  Many IT projects - large and small - have foundered because the requirements were not understood, and it can be difficult to get back on track if the work has taken a wrong turn.  For this reason, it has to be a collaborative effort with a lot of input from you as the customer and from us as the supplier.
