1.1 Concept of website design of Shiny Kitchen Worktop Ltd. that have to be considered on time of design of website
The designing part of the website consist several designing step and helping techniques to design a website effectively. In this existing market a website solution is best solution to capture all types of customers and to make an existence in competitive market. As user point of view using a website of the company a user can make an query from anywhere at any time and the customer can make an order or request for any service at any time without going anywhere. In this competitive making brand image is a very tough task so the company have to integrate a reliable more user friendly and very attractive website with unique feature to engage the customer with your website. Now I have evaluated the concept of website design of Shiny Kitchen Worktop Ltd. Company. This company is originally located at Gant Hill in Australia which involve in business of variety of granite worktops. They serve genuine product and service to their loyal customer from more than 20 years. They sell different types of Granite worktops and quartz worktops to their retained customer. Now I am going to discuss about the design concept of website of Shiny Kitchen Worktop Ltd. Company which is as follows:
- Not focused just only on visual of website: The user of the website gives their feedback and after making an interaction with website. If the website fails to attract the customer in first interaction then customer never come back again. I have to design the website for Shiny Kitchen Worktop by including much attractive content and using better content management system. I have also analyzed that to design website effectively I have to use dynamic navigation system. The website must have better load balancing capability to recover from heavy traffic. The web page of the website of Shiny Kitchen company have effective and efficient and have minimum loading time as possible.
- Develop the website as keep in mind client/consumer: For any business and e-business customer or consumer are primary target audience so to design a website for the Shiny Kitchen I have to develop this website by making it consumer centric. I have to design this website by including all the requirement of shiny kitchen and consumer as well as all the artifacts required by the company and consumer.
- Gathering information about website design: As user point of view gathering of information and requirement to design a website is most important so I have to pay more attention on time of collecting information to develop the website to support the business of Shiny Kitchen Worktop Ltd.
- Sketch every webpage and forms roughly: As to facilitate effectively to the user by the website of the company I have to create rough sketch for every webpage and forms by pen and paper until I don’t get the most suitable design for the website. This step save huge effort, much time and help use the available resource by maximizing the use of resource.
- Unique: if the website doesn’t have unique feature then no business company capable to make image in this competitive age of marketing. So I have design the concept of website by applying uniqueness and by applying powerful content management system.
- Folder ideas: Make folder to contain all the important aspects such as videos, photos and other useful resources. These important aspects play vital role in designing of the website to the developer. If the designer forgets some point related to the website design then this folder help designer in making of effective website and due to this all important resources automatically mentioned.
Types of User
I have design the website to support the business of Shiny Kitchen Worktops Ltd. by keeping in mind the offline consumer and as well as online consumer because 60 to 75% of consumer always available as online and they love to make an order using the website to avoid going anywhere and facing lots of difficulties. I have also designed this website by keeping in mind the local customer and retailers because without trust and support of local customer the business company fails to achieve their objectives.
There are some special type of user available in this competitive market such as regular user who make order and interact with website on regular basis, expert user who make and order after comparing specification of products on different websites and non voice user who have primary knowledge about the e-marketing.
- Regular user: These are those users who visit any website on the regular basis.

So this website must have a regular updates on certain time interval.
- Expert user: These are those users who know very well about the website and they provide feedback and contact with company for important purposes so the company have to provide detail information on to the website and have to update the contents and blogs regularly
- Non Voice user: These users have primary knowledge about the website design and development. Just because of as a new user they satisfied with basic user interface. But they don’t able to face any types of difficulties and complexities so the team of designer have to provide simple and sound interface user with full on security and privacy.
- Important needs: This website is focused on meaning not on appearance so this facilitates the user as any types of user either they are new or don’t have good visibility can be able to use this website easily. A text to audio converter can also be added with this website to facilitate user who has week visibility.
The effective website analysis the website described below:
- Latest updated information: Latest updated or real time information means that the information receives right now or added as of now. This process help user to receive information at instant and help to monitor the website updates every time.
- Commercial: This newly designed website is a trading website (commercial website) and as trading website it has a regular flow of cash and generates revenue for the company.
- Website structure: Structure of the website (Sitemap) provides visuality process about the navigation system and website functionality. Website structure provides important and prior deliverable about the website.
- Keyword: During development of website the designer uses several keywords so during searching of the website by the user; they can easily capable to find the website of the company. The user can easily able to make search about all the products of company such as kitchen worktop, granite worktop and Dekton and many other products and services.
- Government: This website is designed to support “Shinny Kitchen Worktops Ltd.” It involves in selling of granite, Dekton and other trading stones. So the designer designed this website as trading purpose and as trading company this involves in selling.
