Usability & Design

Usability & Design Interface

With interactive design in mind, DECS focuses on the user experience and how to develop the best interface for the most user-friendly web experience possible. We integrate web, graphic, application, and interface design in a way that is comprehensible for all users.

Information architecture is an important aspect of web design and this is an important part of the preproduction design process and research. Site flow is the foundation of websites content design. But, before we develop a website, we like to do our homework and ask ourselves the following questions:

  • How is your site currently structured?
  • What content do you want to present on the site overall?
  • How are competing sites presenting similar content?
  • What is the best way that we can organize your content for the best user experience?
  • Who are your primary and secondary audiences? What do they need and want?
  • What are the components that will make your site better?
