Planning and Programming

Websites and Solutions

Planning your project

We use the term “wireframing” and have applied it to great benefit on many websites and web applications.

Two key benefits of wireframing are saving costs at the development stage and improving the user experience.

 

Wireframing Case Study – Learning and Skills Network

Creation of an online Mobile learning activity platform

How our Wireframing, User Interface and User Experience design delivered a £200,000 project, on budget and on time, for less than 18% of the total.

In order to ensure the brief for the programmers was spot on, the Big Media team brought our planning, design and UI/UX skills to bear.

We worked with the client, defining screen size parameters, the entire User Interface including buttons, graphics and colour schemes, and the full structure for the User experience. This formed a comprehensive brief for the programmers to follow, and kept control of the budget and timescales.

Bespoke programming

Often client requirements extend to more sophisticated, custom requirements. Where this is the case, we have partners who can programme the specific functionality you require.

If you have already created a first stage, MVP (Minimum Viable Proposition) product, we can determine whether we can on-develop from the existing platform or whether it would be more economically sensible to start on a new platform.

Examples of work done include membership directories, used car stock management combined with easy photo upload, online training and online booking systems.

We’re not trying to make the unrealistic promise that we can do anything, but it is DEFINITELY worth asking us.
