2. Developing Joomla and WordPress based websites

We develop Joomla and WordPress based sites in cooperation with our clients. We also provide maintenance services for Joomla websites.

Unigrafia breaks the website project down into operational phases thoroughly specified together with the client. The project phases will be scheduled and we will proceed from one phase to another only after the approval of the client. This enables us to provide the best possible solutions for our client, to reach the objectives set for the project, stay on schedule and anticipate costs.

Developing a tailored website solution usually consists of a specification phase during which we go through (1) the informational objectives for the web service, contents, structure and functions, as well as (2) the visual identity for the website along with main ideas and expectations for the colour palette. The project begins with a kick-off meeting with the client.

After the kick-off meeting, a user interface along with the visual identity will be created, or the existing graphic design and interface will be modified according to the client’s needs. Elements such as banners, navigations, colours, image layout and typography can be designed. A search function and a feedback form can also be added to the site.

Design is based on the structural layout of the site and the visual identity (colour palette, logo, use of images and fonts) of the project. Images can be provided by the client or purchased from an image bank. Image editing is not included and there will be a separate charge per image.

Following the approval of the visual identity design, the site template will be coded and content with images fed into the publishing system. The client is responsible for providing the text and image content and Unigrafia is responsible for feeding the content into the system within the scope stipulated in the agreement. If project requires providing new content or feeding new content into the system, a separate workload estimate will be provided by Unigrafia.

Lastly, a user interface test will be conducted and faults detected during the testing will be corrected immediately. All groups and persons involved in the project will participate in the testing process. The web service will be launched on a date stipulated by the client. Unigrafia provides also maintenance service for Joomla based sites and provides also options for maintenance of WordPress based sites. Unigrafia can also help with server space and hosting issues. Prices do not include web hosting costs or domain registration.
