Planning to build a website


What job will this site have?

  • sell stuff?
  • build a community?
  • documentation?
  • record an event?


Who will visit the website?

  • Personas
  • Demographics
  • Language / Geography
  • Devices / Browsers


Getting the information architecture right from the start is important.

  • Content Types
  • Navigation
  • Search
  • Taxonomy

Style / Design

We're using D8 Outta the box, so we'll be using Bartik. Not doing a lot of design, but still, need to think about colour, images, logo.

  • Logo
  • Colour
  • Images
