Our simple process will help ensure your future success.
Each project begins with a kick-off meeting where we listen to you and familiarize ourselves with your product, company, business model and audience. Once we understand the problem you are trying to solve, we will conduct some research on your market and customers' needs before providing a recommendation and estimate.

Once approved, we'll often start by creating a design schematic called a wireframe to help organize ideas and prioritize the messages your customers will be attracted to. If you have the desire to be directly involved with how the website functions from an information architecture perspective, we can provide you with one free license of Balsamiq - our wireframe tool of choice. This allows you to help arrange content and provide detailed examples based on your industry knowledge. If you would like to do this phase on your own, we'll happily accept your wireframes as the foundation for our contributions. Once we both agree on the site direction, we'll move to design.
Using the wire frames as a guideline, we begin the design process. We'll start by selecting a few key pages of the site that will provide a good overview of the look and feel. We'll usually create concepts consisting of two to three individual pageviews. We share these examples with you and allow you to shape the direction of the site. Once a direction has been selected, we create each individual pageview necessary to communicate the entire experience to your stake holders. You'll have the opportunity to provide as much feedback necessary to make sure that your new site will meet its goals.
The finishing stage can be as simple as helping you craft each page with its final images and content to make sure they look flawless. If you would like to integrate a third-party content management platform such as WordPress, Tumblr, Shopify, Blogger, SquareSpace, Typepad or any other, we can assist. These provide you the functionality to safely produce and update content without the need for a deep understanding of programming, and they can provide long-term savings for regularly updated sites.
