Discover our process
We have a multi-phased approach to building digital solutions such as Wordpress, Umbraco or Magento websites.
We kick off our process with a discovery phase which helps us learn all about your brand and business needs. During this phase, we look at competitive benchmarking and complete an audit of your existing website, such as how it currently performs for SEO. Once website discovery is complete our web designers begin to analyse the site structure and architecture in order to complete a new sitemap and navigation. We will then produce wireframes in order to prioritise and organise your content before creating high-fidelity designs. During the design stage, we will then apply your brand to the approved wireframes in order to create a beautiful website.
When the page designs are approved our team of developers gets to work on bringing the designs to life. This can be a time-intensive stage of the process and can take weeks to months to complete depending on the content management system and the number of integrations required. When the development has been completed the website is then rigorously tested across devices and browsers to make sure it is responsive and accessible and free from bugs. Once you are happy with the website and it's all signed off the website will be launched and made ready for the world!
We build lots of different types of website
It can be easy to think of websites as a single monolithic term. However, there are a lot of variances between websites such as the distinction between a brochure site and eCommerce.
Our team of Glasgow-based developers are not wedded to any one content management system. We access your needs and recommended a content management system based on your business goals. WordPress is an extremely popular platform which many people have experience editing and lots of our clients use this platform. WordPress has lots of plugins and can offer eCommerce functionality through WooCommerce. Another popular CMS choice is Umbraco websites. It's one of our favourite platforms which offers great editing capabilities. eCommerce is also a large part of what we do and when it comes to larger catalogues and eCommerce sites we also offer Shopify and Magento development.
We also have a wealth of experience in software integrations which extends the functionality of your website. Many of our clients use a ticketing system called Spektrix and over time we have created a robust Spektrix integration which can seamlessly get theatre and arts organisation sites online quickly and without hassle.
What kind of clients works with a web design agency?
The truth is that most businesses can and do employ agencies that offer creative and digital services. We've seen a massive shift to digital over our ten years in business and have worked with clients such as charities in the third sector, we've created many theatre websites and we work closely with large organisations in the leisure industry. The work section of our website showcases a tiny amount of the 100s of clients Parachute have worked with over the last decade. We are not niche-specific and love to help businesses reach their goals and tell their own unique story regardless of their industry or sector.
