This is the process that we follow for most website design projects. We customize the process for other types of projects.
I'll begin by asking you a number of questions in order to understand your reasons for this project and what it is that you're trying to accomplish.
The questions can get a little difficult or even uncomfortable at times, but this is what it takes to get us onto a solid foundation that we can build on.
Before diving into the design, we research your intended market and competitors. This helps us identify what's needed to make your website stand out and succeed in the marketplace with your intended audience.
Once I have everything needed from you, I'll build a visual map of the site. This will make it clear what we need to include and how best to structure things.
Next, I'll build an interactive prototype that shows you how my planned solution will work. It won't be beautiful at this point, so we won't have focused on visual design yet. But it will give us both a clear working model to work from that's far better than a dry and difficult to understand written spec.
The design stage is exciting because it's here that your project comes to life in vivid detail. We'll use colors, graphics and written content to build your project on our pre-launch staging area.
When the design is complete, we will work underground for a few days or weeks, depending on the size and scope of your project. We'll do all the behind-the-scenes work and final checks that are needed to make your website live and viewable by the public on your chosen hosting platform.
