Process Title

Research and Specifications

 

A web design project begins with understanding your vision and goals. In order to transform this vision into a fully functioning and interactive website, we need to capture the complete set of specifications and functionality of the project. Will it have a blog? Will users be able to login to a private section? How will the news be handled? Will users be able to purchase a product?. Once we have the specs down we can move forward with our process.


Design Phase

 

When we begin to wireframe, we begin by sketching out the general layout of a page. A wireframe is simply a black and white blueprint showing the overall placement of the elements on the page. This is the step that defines where the main navigation will go, where the logo will be placed as well as all images, text and media elements. By adding these placeholders, we get the foundation to design a user-friendly and incredibly awesome looking website for you. Once the wireframes are approved, we move on to designing your site. This is where we implement our creative ideas and we begin to design the look and feel of the website. One of our goals during the design phase is to capture the essence of your business, your culture as well as your products and services. A website is usually the face of your company to the world and it needs to reflect who you are and what your business has to offer.


Development


This is where we take the approved design and turn it into the language of the internet, HTML. We splice and dice the design and code clean, search engine friendly and compliant HTML/CSS.


Testing and Finish

 

Since users will access your website from different computers, browsers, phones, iPads, etc, we test our creations on various platforms and browsers such as, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari. This in order to make sure the the user experience is the same whether you’re looking at the site on a Mac running Safari or a Windows 7 computer using Internet Explorer. We make sure our websites look great in all of them. Once the site is complete we turn on the switch and introduce your newborn website to the world.
