our process

300+ successful projects completed

Our project development process is a proven method, used successfully for many years. It consists of a series of steps that build upon one another, reducing risk and arriving at a final deliverable project through a structured approach.

Project types include: websites, e-commerce projects, mobile apps, and custom web solutions (ie. integration/application design).

Our typical process:

 

planning

1. Requirements Gathering

Based on conversations with you, the client, we learn about your goals and create a proposal to align expectations, educate each other, define features and scope, and outline cost and duration.

2. Kick – off

A project extranet is established for team communication. We ask you to answer questions that turn into an agenda for an informative kick-off meeting. Then, we discuss project details including design preferences, deliverables, and a timeline.

3. Discovery

During the Discover phase, we focus on behind the scene considerations such as SEO recommendations and website structure. We then create visual concepts that display possible layouts.

4. Design

We explore brand, fonts, colors, and usability. To establish creative direction, several moodboards are presented. Once a direction is approved, we design all the website’s page templates.

5. Development

We program the website by converting designs into HTML and CSS, which we connect to the content management system (CMS). We enter your content and perform functionality and browser testing.

6. Deploy

You are trained on how to use the CMS, and you provide feedback on the website. Once we have your approval, the website launches.

7. Support & Hosting

After the website is live, we maintain a partnership with you by providing support assistance and ongoing maintenance to the hosted environment, the website, and the CMS.

8. Website Updates

Whether you are interested in small changes, Google Analytics help, or major enhancements, our Web Strategists and Support Team are ready to discuss the next steps for your website.
