Step 1 – Design file Review
First, our professional programmer’s reviews your design files to make sure that all of the necessary artwork elements are included in the PSD designs for HTML and CSS conversion. This includes designs for each page you want to see, any hover states, dropdowns, tooltips, sliders, lightboxes, modal popups, form validations, and any other interactive elements that are present in the HTML page. If there are any questions or design issues come up in this stage, our account manager will work directly with you or your designer to address. Make sure we have a clean start.
Step 2 – Hand Coded PSD to HTML5 and CSS3
Once all files have been reviewed, an expert front-end web developer is beginning the process of hand-coding your designs. All design elements, including positioning, colors, images, fonts, font sizes, line-heights come from the layers in the PSD design and are converted into HTML code. Our experienced developers go through your PSD file layer by layer to make sure that it is a pixel perfect match to your designs. All code is written in HTML5 with external CSS style sheets using the latest in web standards. Once the initial HTML and CSS is coded it is validated to make sure there are no HTML validation errors.
Now that the basic HTML and CSS has been coded from your PSD designs our developers can get started coding jQuery animations. These animations include any interactions on the page, from drop-down menus to modal popups. These are taken from different grouped layers in the PSD design, typically with on/off states for each element with an animation or interaction. A good example of this is a button with on, off, and hover states. In the PSD, our developers hand-code the 3 different states with CSS and match the different states in your design exactly.
Step 4 – Integrating for WordPress CMS
After the jQuery animation elements are coded, your PSD to HTML conversion is complete! However, the fun is not over yet. We will carefully integrate your design into a WordPress CMS, to make sure you can update and maintain the website. We use latest plugins or developing custom plugin for as the project needed. There is no additional cost for even the premium plugins. A great site doesn’t just look good, but also easy to maintenance
