Web Design Process

Web Site Design Process

Research

Research

The first and most important step in designing a successful website is to gather information. During the research and discovery phase, we ascertain the purpose of the site, goals, and target audience. This information helps us develop a focus strategy for your site so you can reach more customers. At the end of the research and discovery phase, we present the following deliverables: existing website analysis, competitors analysis and SEO recommendations.

Planning

Planning

During the planning stage, we align your business objectives through a content audit exposing any redundant, obsolete and trivial information. From there, we plan on incorporating additional relevant digital technologies. A fictional character called a persona is created to communicate the characteristics of your target audience enabling a web design for the best user experience. A sitemap deliverable is created and serves as a guide as to what content will be on the site and is essential for creating a consistent navigational system. Task list creation also starts in the planning stage. All parties can visualize what they need to do at each stage of the site creation process.

Design

Design

We take an iterative approach to our design and development process. During the design phase, we determine the sites functionality and architectural layout. We create a functional prototype as quickly as possible, then start engaging your interaction and feedback. We build off the functional prototype making incremental changes to the user interface adding content, colors, and images.

Development

Development

During the development stage, we create an entirely functional website; coded for compatibility with a broad range of smart devices and browsers. We complete any final design layouts and content tweaks based on the feedback in the design phase. The second iteration of your site is now complete, and it is time for the testing and launch phase.

Test / Launch

Test / Launch

One week before the site is launched we freeze the code. Now it is time to attend to the final details and test your website's cross-browser compatibility, functionality, and usability. Once the testing is complete, it is time to go-live with the site. We move the site from our staging server to your hosts public server.

Maintenance

Maintenance

The development of your website is not necessarily over; we will work with you on-site maintenance such as bug fixes, and content changes. We do not require any long-term contractual commitments or monthly maintenance fees. We bill at an hourly rate. We use one-click time tracking tools for transparent billing.
