Planning a site is more than just the design and architecture phases I previously spoke about. Your plan needs more than an outline to guide you. It needs something that will help keep you on track.
This audit was a first of its kind for me and for the PHP/Drupal Practice (as far as I am aware). We had no guidelines, framework, or basis to do this. So I set out to come up with a useful audit that can provide valuable feedback for the client to help improve their website.
The purpose of this article is to provide a quick outline for the process we use at VMLY&R to design and architect a website. In the future, I will provide an in-depth walkthrough of this process with a hypothetical project.
