LA – Introduction to web design (week 17, part 1.2)

Learning activity – Part one, number two (1.2) – was to create a list of questions for the client to ask before the project to get a good brief and understanding what details is required and what functionality is needed.

Create 10. of your own questions, add them to the ones that were giving in the lecture and pick the 10 best ones to use with my clients. Here’s the list of NorOff’s that were giving to us:

  1. What kind of visitors are you expecting on your website? (Consider their income, interests, gender and age.)
  2. Who are your competitors and how do you differ from them?
  3. What actions do you want visitors to take on the site?
  4. What is your deadline for completing the site? How big is the budget?
  5. What features should be used on your website? (This includes things like contact forms, pictures, videos, etc.)
  6. Please list the names of three sites that you like and explain what you like about them.
  7. Do you have any colour preferences? What should the look and feel for the website be?
  8. Who will be the contact person for this project?
  9. What do you NOT want on your site in terms of text, content, colour and graphic elements?
  10. Who will be responsible for maintaining the website? Will the person have the time and skills to do so?

My list of 10 questions:

  1. What is your company about and the values?
  2. What is the website’s goal?
  3. What are the requirements and the most important elements you want in your webpage?
  4. Do you have any ready made marketing material already ecxisting – a logo, brochures, business cards that the web pages should match to?
  5. Do you have a brand manual?
  6. Do you have a URL already in your mind and what could be alternatives if that one is taking already?
  7. Do you already have a page wireframes or is it part of this project?
  8. Do you have all the material ready including the text and photographs that can be used in the webpages?
  9. Does the webpage need any features to share in social media like tweet, like, +1 share etc)? Or a webstore implemented to your website?
  10. Do you need space for space for advertising?

The ultimate list of 10 questions I would ask my clients gathered from these two lists:

  1. What is your company about and what are the values?
  2. What are the requirements and the most important elements you want in your webpage?
  3. What kind of visitors are you expecting on your website? (Consider their income, interests, gender and age.)
  4. Who are your competitors and how do you differ from them?
  5. Do you have a URL already in your mind and what could be alternatives if that one is taking already?
  6. Please list the names of three sites that you like and explain what you like about them.
  7. Do you have marketing material already excisting – a logo, brochures, business cards that the web pages should match to? A brand manual?
  8. What is your deadline for completing the site? How big is the budget?
  9. Who will be the contact person for this project? Who will be responsible for maintaining the website? Will the person have the time and skills to do so?
  10. Do you have the material ready including the text and photographs that can be used in the webpages or do you need help with those?
