UPR Designs fully consider the following issues during the
design process: site navigation, screen layout (optimisation
for various screen dimensions), download times, browser types
and release versions and facility for interactivity with the
Whilst every web project has its own special set of requirements,
there are basic considerations that all projects share. For
this reason, UPR Designs carefully consider what those goals
are in terms of an internet presence. This can be accomplished
by breaking each project down into 6 easy steps with the client
being included and consulted each step along the way.
Step One - Meeting the Client
The first step of every project is a meeting with the client.
Typically this meeting will be to complete a website specification
form and sketch a sitemap detailing the main sections of the
website. We will endeavor to listen to you, our client, and
review your content to plan how your site should be laid out.
Having established the site structure, the client will then
be required to provide copy writing and other site content
to accompany these sections.
Step Two - Market Research
This would involve carrying out market research on the client's
target audience, including investigating other relevant websites.
Analysis from this research is then used to formulate initial
design concepts for the website.
Step Three - Presentation of Initial Concepts
This consists of initial design concepts being visualised
that would illustrate to the client how the website would
be rendered in an internet browser. This is known as the 'design'
stage. These initial concepts can be presented at a second
meeting in the form of colour storyboards or via email.
Step Four - Presentation of Revised Concepts (if required)
In Step four, feedback from the client will be fed back in
to the design process and a revision of the preferred visualisation
would be produced. Amended versions would be sent to the client
in the electronic form of Adobe Acrobat pdf's via email (a
convenient cross-platform format that saves on paper). If
the concepts are approved we then move on to Step Five.
Step Five - Sign-Off
The project is now at an advanced stage. Approval of the design
concepts are sought from the client - a stage referred to
as the 'sign-off'. The project moves into a development stage
where everything is 'brought together'. We take all the defined
elements from the previous steps and programme the website
in its specified environment. Images and copywriting are also
required from the client in order to populate the site. During
this development stage, the website can be reviewed and tested
by the client via the internet on UPR Design's server space.
Step Six - Publish
The final stage of the project involves publishing the website
on the internet. The navigational system and interactive elements
will be thoroughly tested before being uploaded to a 'live
environment'. This also provides an opportunity for the client
to request any minor changes. Once you are satisfied with
the site, it will be initially submitted to a number of selected
UPR Designs offers high quality logo design for a low, affordable
price. A company logo is a visual representation of your business
and symbolizes your corporate identity, its aims and objectives
and the industry you operate in. A professional logo is essential
to create a positive first impression of your business to
your customers. We research your industry and products or
services before designing a logo that consistently ties in
with your corporate color scheme to create a very uniform
and recognisable identity for your business.

Why have a Web Site ?
The latest Internet statistics claim that there are over
900 million browsers world-wide. This represents 900 million
potential customers that can visit your web site day or night.
Closer to home, their are 34 million users online in the UK
and 1.3 million in Ireland. The internet is a new medium for
you to promote your company and its products/ services to
Consumers are very demanding, that goes without saying. However,
in this digital age, customers expect to see a web site for
almost all types of businesses. Furthermore, they expect to
be able to email you. By having a website designed you will
raise the profile of your company.
The beauty of the Internet is that it lets smaller businesses
compete on a level playing field with their larger competitors.
It allows you to reach new markets that were previously unobtainable
all at totally affordable cost. The remaining question is
therefore, can you afford not to have a web site?
