About us


Web One Ghana is the home of an enthusiastic team of designers, coders, and creatives, who love to lend their talents to great companies.
 

We are based in the city of Accra but we work with clients from all over the world.

OUR PROCESS
We love our work process and so do our clients. We work really closely with our clients and involve them in every stage of the project in an open, transparent way. At each stage of every project our clients always know what we are doing and who is working on what all in real-time too. It’s a very collaborative experience.

 

We break down the process into a few fundamental areas; planning, wireframing, design and development. We find this focus on a few core areas makes for a smooth experience.
We love making our process fun too; we’re no dull corporate company, we like some banter and a joke is never wasted on us. We consider our clients part of the family.

 

OUR CLIENT PROCESS
An insight into the process we use with our clients. From planning and research to development and hand-off.

 

PLANNING & RESEARCH
Planning and research are the most important part of any project. We collect all the vital information needed to make the project effective and organised.

 

DOCUMENTATION
We begin by mapping out a document, listing every detail we will require for our job, any development specification, user stories and general notes from Skype meetings.

We then map out our weekly goals for both ourselves and our clients and get to work.
 

ANALYTICS
Reviewing a company's current analytics is a vital part of the research process. It provides a great insight into the user’s behaviour and informs us of the client’s current site’s strengths and weaknesses. It really helps us to craft a better end result. Designing with data is extremely effective.

 

BRAND & PERSONALITY
Every company has a personality. Our job is to bring that personality to life, with a stunning brand and a website that makes the company really stand out from their competitors. We take time to look into the company, its staff and user base, to make sure our ideas and designs really match their personality and brand.

COMPETITORS
Every company has a competitive streak, they want to beat the competition, to have a website that delivers a competitive advantage. Simply put, that is what Simple as Milk is here for; to deliver beyond the competition.

 

INSPIRATION
Collecting ideas and inspiration is a great way to make sure we are on the same wavelength as the client when it comes to design direction. It also inspires us to get the creative juices flowing and to push ourselves that little bit further.

 

WIREFRAMING
Wireframing is where we start to flesh out the layout, content and user experience of the project. Producing a structure that we can then use for the foundations of design and development.

 

USER EXPERIENCE
User experience is always in the forefront of our process, making sure everything we produce is intuitive and simple to use. We achieve this through the wireframing stage with user testing to make sure we really hit the nail on the head and make for some very happy users.

 

INTERACTION
User interaction is awesome, it’s the icing on the cake that makes all the difference to a user’s experience.
 

PRESENTED WITH INVISION
We love to present our wireframes in InVision. It’s a great tool that allows the client to comment on the wireframes directly and link through to the site/application as if it was coded up. Perfect for some quality user testing.
 

CONTENT LAYOUT
Good content layout and hierarchy makes sure you get the right content to the user in the appropriate place and manner. This really helps produce a readable, usable experience that is correctly targeted to the user.

 

DESIGN
Needless to say this is where we have great fun making everything look beautiful. Taking the wireframes and bringing the project to life.

 

START WITH HOMEPAGE
We like to start the design of any site/app with the main page of the project. This is usually the homepage. Designing this first gives us a concept to present to the client which will drive the style of the rest of the project. We then refine this with the client to deliver perfection.

 

CUSTOM ILLUSTRATION & ICONS
We love to produce custom icons and illustrations as these can really make a site unique and individual. This really sets each site apart from the competitors and gives everything a more rounded finish that ties the entire project and brand together.

 

TYPOGRAPHY
Typography has a key role to play in defining a brand’s personality. Choosing the right typeface and how the content is set really makes a difference. We have a background in magazine and book design so we know our stuff when it comes to typography.

 

PRESENTED WITH INVISION
We present all our design work inside InVision linking the screens together so the client can click through the site as if it was coded. The client can then see and experience the site “in action” rather than “static” and so get a feel for the user experience. Again the client can comment on these screens to refine the site as part of our collaborative process.

 

TYPOGRAPHY
Every site has a detailed typography stylesheet which uses math calculations allowing us to perfect the font size and line height for the best readability across all devices.

 

DETAILS
Design elements are layered on, much like painting a wall, starting with colours and layering additional details, shadows, textures and effects building up to the finished product.

 

JAVASCRIPT
Lashings of JavaScript added throughout ranging from adding modern HTML support to older browsers and performance enhancements to sexy interactions and animations.

 

BUG TESTING & CROSS BROWSER TESTING
The part every developer dreads, working through inconsistencies and bugs with older browsers. We test and retest starting with the developed wireframes to the baseline cross browser support perfect before layering on the sex.

 

BACK-END DEVELOPMENT
We take the site/app's and the clients requirements and then evaluate and choose the best server-side technology to match, whether that's Ruby on Rails, WordPress or even just a static site.
Back-end development begins as soon as the specification is signed off and first wireframes are approved, allowing for a faster more agile process that gets usable screens in front of clients as quickly as possible.

 

HAND-OFF
The hand-off process is rather more hands on. We continue to work with the client after launch, gathering feedback from users, monitoring performance and working with the client to setup and monitor tests along with A/B testing various elements to squeeze every drop of conversion from the site.

Every company has a competitive streak, they want to beat the competition, to have a website that delivers a competitive advantage. Simply put, that is what Simple as Milk is here for; to deliver beyond the competition.
