Our Process

We take a structured approach to design. Our development process was created to ensure every project is delivered on-time and on-budget. Once your web design project kicks off, here's what to expect:

Initial Planning

The first order of business is to sit down with you and create a detailed set of design and technical specifications. These specifications serve as a roadmap for the rest of the web design process.

Wireframing

Wireframes are your first chance to visualize your website. While they’re not nearly as detailed as the final site will be, they give us a visual representation of the site’s overall layout.

Mockups

Once all site mockups are completed and approved, we’ll proceed with site mockups. These add color and a bit more detail to the initial wireframes, giving us a stronger visual representation of the final product.

Copy, Graphics, & SEO

Once we’ve agreed on a final design based on the mockups, our team will proceed with development, kicking off two phases in unison. The first involves creating your site’s copy and graphics. Our team will get to work performing SEO and competitive research and come up with the copy and images that will flesh out your final site.

Testing

Once our writers, designers, and developers have finished their work, our Quality Assurance team will get to work testing your site’s performance and reliability. We’ll use various tools to benchmark your site for loading, responsiveness, and speed, while also ensuring that it works reliably on all web browsers and mobile devices.

Deployment & Optimization 

Once we’re sure that your site is ready to be released to the public, we’ll deploy it on your public domain. Then, we’ll shift into a monthly support process. During that time, we’ll create monthly backups of your site, update scripts and plugins to maintain security and reliability, and perform layout and content updates at your request.

Go Live

The launch process ensures that you have a working map on your site and your domain (website address) loads your new site when your website visitors access it.
