Our Website Design Process
Creating a website can seem complicated and feel overwhelming for a client. We want to make it as smooth as we can. Although each project is different, the following process is an example to help you better understand what is involved when creating a new website
We get started by discussing the scope of your project, your needs, your goals, etc. This is crucial in order for us to determine if we are the best fit for your project, and how to best approach your project and solve whatever “problems” you might be having. We gather all the necessary information and move on to preparing your estimate.
Project Proposal and Estimate
An estimate and proposal based on the details gathered during the initial consultation session will be prepared. The proposal will itemize the scope of the project deliverables which will be included in your project.
Once your proposal is approved and your initial deposit is paid, your project will begin.
Content, Content, Content
At this stage, the client will gather & send all the content that will be on the new website. This is includes (but is not not limited to) text, photos, forms, and documents that will need to be downloaded. Everything that you would expect to be included and found on your website when it’s completed.
Before any planning, designs or code can begin, ALL content must be received.
Planning and Research
All your content is reviewed, making sure all your text photos and other assets are in the correct formats. We start planning and mapping out a new architecture and user experience for your new site.
Creating a new and proper site architecture is the backbone structure of your site and the basis of how people will use your site. The user interface (UX) is the first step in creating a great website.
Graphic Design and Layout
Colors. Images. Shapes. Layers.
We are finally ready to take all of your text and images, and design a new website graphic interface from scratch. Everything we create is custom based on your business needs and goals, so we take great care to make sure that what we create will reach your audience and communicate your message.
After receiving approval from you on the graphic design of your new website design, we get to bring the layout to life with code. Development begins and we add functionality to each are of the new site on our local servers.
This is when we import all of your text and images into each page and section of the website, getting it ready to present to you for review. During this phase, we tweak styles and perfect everything for use on all devices ranging from desktop to tablet to mobile.
Client Review and Revisions
Finally! You will receive a link to our live development server to preview your new website, review the different sections and compile a list of any revisions that will need to be made prior to completion.
Final Review and Approval
It’s your turn to do a final review of the website. That last once over to make sure there’s nothing left to be done. Once we get your official seal of approval, we schedule a launch date!
The day you have been waiting for! We’re preparing all the final website files, tapping into your live server and installing your new website. Final testing is done to be sure everything is working properly and if all looks good, we’re done!
Now it’s your turn! Ready to get started on your project?
