Web Design Process
Web design is a multifaceted process that encompasses a thorough analysis of client and users needs, as well as, taxonomy (site structure), user interface, navigation, color scheme, media, typography, readability, legibility and written content. However, web design that takes client and users needs into account and focuses on meeting those needs with engaging content is the most important aspect of a successful web project. Industry professionals often say, "Content is king" but they should say that relevant content that meets the needs of the clients and users is king. A good understanding of both the client and user needs should guide the process of designing a site which features content that is relevant, useful, well designed and engaging.
