Kickstarting Your Odoo Web Design Project

Building a website for your business from scratch could be like entering a maze — where should we start and how? 

Every Web Design project in Odoo starts with a kick-off meeting with our web designers so that they understand your needs and goals. To guarantee optimal results, our design team follows up by presenting you with a comprehensive site map and wireframe. By doing so, we ensure that your ideas are effectively translated into action with

  1. Clear navigation within your website,
  2. Natural page hierarchy,
  3. Organized content,
  4. Efficient user journey,
  5. Secure conversion opportunities.

What Is A Site Map And Why You Want One

As the name suggests, a site map is a directory of your website and is an important step to clarify your needs and business goals.

Before mapping, you should brainstorm and list out what you want and don't want on your website. After understanding our client's main requirement for a web page, our designers will group the content into a few main categories and branch out from there.

A blueprint for your online presence, the site map is a foundation for designing your website by identifying key pages and their hierarchy, organizing content for intuitive navigation, mapping user flows and interactions, and encouraging collaboration with stakeholders for their input. 

A finished site map should look like a family tree with facts about your company, products or services, or anything your customers should know about your business. 

Visualizing Your Website With A Wireframe

And it's time to visualize your website! 

Wireframing is a collaborative process of drawing and refining your website's framework. This aims to define the website's content organization, user interactions, and information architecture, allowing designers and you to collaborate, iterate, and make informed decisions early in the design process. 

An unmissable step to take to optimize user experience and user interface (UX/UI) on your website, a wireframe is planned following a few simple steps:

  1. Creating wireframes with sketching and designing tools
  2. Translating site map into wireframe components
  3. Designing wireframes for responsive layouts
  4. Incorporating UI elements and placeholders
  5. Facilitating feedback and iteration

Just like that, your website mock-up is born!
