Important requirements to design a website

Last Update: April 02, 2015

A lot of you are aware of this topic, but I'm sure a lot of you might not be aware; for those that are not aware, I hope this information is useful.

I consider this article to be very informative, this being the reason I am sharing it with all of you.

4 requirements to design a website:

    ·Business requirements

    ·Technical requirements

    ·User requirements, and

    ·Design requirements.

Business requirements: We need to ask ourselves, what's the goal of the website? And really, all decisions concerning the design should be made based on the goal of the website. Are you trying to inform, persuade somebody to maybe buy something? Answer all those questions and really the result will be the content for the website.

Technical requirements: We need to make sure the content downloads fast; we need to make sure this website is compatible across all browsers, and even across different devices, from tablets to mobile device, and we need to make sure it's optimized for search engines. And the result of that would, again, just be a document that we just need to keep in check as we start to develop, as well as test our website.

User requirements: We need to make sure that it's easily viewable and accessible. So you need to make sure site is uploaded, and you can see all the content, you need to make sure it's easy to use, your navigation is easy to click on, and you need to make sure that your content is appropriate for the audience. So depending on your business objectives, you'll be able to determine your audience and then your audience starts to drive the design as well.

Design requirements: We need to make sure the design is appropriate for the content. Navigation should be really straightforward. We should be able to differentiate what's a link and what's just text. We need to make sure you keep that text legible as well.
