A CMS Admin design process includes designing and customizing the CMS Admin area with the same design dedication that is applied to the website’s front-end design process.
Website’s identity, layout style and user interfaces are typically illustrated in a detailed manner for a client to be able to fully assess the design and development plan for the website. This is a wonderful but unfortunately not always enough. The future website owner should also be introduced to the CMS Admin area usability and user-flow designs as the site owner and/or other members in the company will be using the Content Management System on a daily or weekly basis.
Especially when the front-end web design includes image rich features, different types of text formatting, complex tables and other data formatting, it is important to provide a view to the back-end Admin area design for the client to be able to fully assess the requirements for maintaining such complex features.
A CMS Admin design process includes designing and customizing the CMS Admin area with the same design dedication that is applied to the website’s front-end design process. This includes illustrating the look and feel of the back-end CMS interfaces, mapping a user-flow for each interface (such as how many clicks are required, what is the required learning curve), and providing the client an opportunity for proper testing rounds and an opportunity to give feedback.
