A trusted partnership is as essential to website design strategy as it is to business strategy. When Digital Butter was founded in 2009, we made it our mission to become the best User Experience and User Interface focused design company in Hong Kong.
Our UX and UI design process is centered around empathy - having a complete picture of the end-users and their preferences. As well as a mobile-first approach (responsive design), so that we’re building great experiences that scale across devices.
Web Design Agency Services
We run a structured process to identify and understand user preferences which drive the rationale behind our website design strategy.
We practice empathy by building archetypes of future users segmented by demographics, psychographics and usage behaviours. This helps us design and build with the end user in mind.
A visualisation exercise that maps the desired user experience against the key platform goals. It helps us understand a users relationship with each feature, module and page within the platform.
We use design thinking to reduce usability risk when building a new product or feature. Prototyping via interactive designs & testing key functionality, usability or feature is critical to optimize designs.
We believe that agency and client are not the key stakeholders in almost every project - it’s the end users who will validate our work. Through our internal tools we track, measure and record user feedback.
We conduct creative research in the form of creative ‘mood boards’ which articulate the shape and form of how a brand and brand identity is laid out in a digital environment, setting a clear direction for visual design.

Is WordPress the best Website Platform?
At Butter we take a technology-agnostic approach for our Hong Kong based clients, where we assess their needs and objectives and advise them on the best technology solutions. WordPress is a popular Content Management System (CMS) used by a development agency, but is not the only choice. A CMS like Craft CMS can provide flexibility when it comes to custom elements within a user interface design as well a completely customisable back end which is configured during the web development stage. Craft CMS comes integration-ready and is powerful enough to be suitable for startups, SME’s and up to enterprise companies.

And the best part of all is that our web designers and developers sit under the same roof - so as soon as designs are completed, we move straight to web development!
How long does it take to finish a website?
A web design and web development project from brief to launch can take many months depending on the size and complexity of the project. Our web design and web development projects usually range from 12 weeks to 6 months. You can expect 12 weeks if you have content ready and the site is under 25 pages. For larger web design and development projects that may include various API's and systems integrations or more technical front end solutions, we expect in the range of 4 to 6 months.
