Our web design and development process is thorough, intentional, and effective.
1. Project Planning
Goal Identification: This is where the fun begins. We will kick things off by hosting a couple virtual meetings in order to gather important information about your company, brand, and primary goals.
Scope Definition: Once we know the site’s goals, we can define the scope of the project, such as what web pages and features the site requires to fulfill the goal, and the timeline for the project.
Sitemap & Wireframe: With the scope well-defined, we can then move on to the sitemap and wireframe. These documents will define how the content and features will be used, as defined in the scope.
Content Outline: With a well defined foundation, we start creating the content outline for the pages, always keeping search engine optimization (SEO) in mind to help keep pages focused on a single topic.This will serve as the complete blue-print for all the content on the site.
2. UX/UI Design
The design phase is where we clarify and handcraft the design elements, make it visually appealing, and really stand out from your competition.
UX design refers to the term “user experience design”, and has been shaped to represent certain methods, processes, and methodologies for enhancing your visitors User Experience. This is done by ensuring your site is easy to learn, efficient to use, pleasant, and so on.
UI design refers to “user interface design”. This is a subset of UX that focuses primarily on the everything your visitor will see and interact with such as links, images, buttons, forms, etc.
This is when your website begins to take shape and really come to life. At this point you can sit back and relax while we take care of the nerdy stuff.
During this stage your involvement will be minimal since we would have already gathered all the necessary information to bring your vision to life. However, we will periodically check in with you for feedback and revisions.
4. Testing and QA
During this stage our team will perform final checks, comprehensive bug testing, and cross-browser testing to ensure a successful launch. You will also have a chance to review and submit any final revisions before it goes live.
Now that everything is done it’s time to show the world your snappy new site. After launch, You will have a 14-day warranty period, during which we will fix any bugs (if any) for free!
6. Updates & Support
This stage is optional, but allows us to bring you even more value! After your new site is live we will maintain it like it is our own, making sure it remains fast, secure, and regularly updated at all times.
As our retainer client you will also get priority support and we will send you comprehensive monthly reports so you can be fully informed as to how your site is performing. Our retainer clients also receive several additional benefits.
