    Question How do you start designing a website?

    Especially when your client doesn't really know where to start. I usually ask them if they have a theme or some chosen colours already, or photos that they would love to put in their website. Also giving in consideration too is the content that they wanted to put in the website.

    When I did design websites, I sat down face to face with the client. Had them show me sites they enjoy going to. I asked them to point out elements that stood out to them. I also discussed their business with them to learn more about it and how they run it.

    I then go back and start doing idea sketches. I then meet with them again and get their opinions on them.

    After that, it's time to actually start designing the site.

    That's a great point to asked them the site they enjoy going to. It'll be my first time designing an e-commerce website so it'll be really hard for me to start from scratch. Thank you for the pointers that you mentioned. It'll be a great help!

    There are two ways to start designing a website:

    - Start designing a website from scratch, for this, you need to do all things as making codes for it.

    - Start designing a website from an existed theme, for this, you need to change more things on it.

    Which is faster? and which is more convenient for you?

    I would start of by brainstorming ideas of an idea you have in mind.
    Then understand how to incorporate it. That being, HTML, PHP or other languages.
    I would also have a designer at hand for images.

    Through my opinion see here For designing a website I have taken the help of web designing software template master Wordpress theme generator and Joomla template generator.

    Its a useful resource for making themes and templates for multiple CMSs like Joomla, Wordpress, Magento, etc. It generates SEO mobile friendly themes.

    Talk to the client about their choices and if they have something already planned for the design. If not, you can start with expressing your ideas.
