Before we even talk about your website, we want to learn everything we can about your business goals and where you’re headed. To start, you’ll speak with our project manager who will ask you a few questions to get to the core of what your business needs and objectives are. This will set the stage for everything we do to make your project a success.
We go through a rigorous discovery phase before we send through our proposal. During this time, we ask you targeted questions that uncover exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve, and what we need to do to get you there. This is a crucial step for both of us as we really get into the details of our future project, creating a clear and tailored plan and solution based on your unique requirements.
Planning & Timelines
Planning & Timelines
Once we have all the information we need, we will build a visual sitemap. This allows all of us to get onto the same page very quickly. It also helps everyone understand what it is we’re trying to communicate, and helps us determine the best way to structure the information you want to share with your target audience. We will also map out your project timeline with key milestones and other timings so we all have a clear picture of how things will go. Here’s an example of a sitemap we worked on.
During this stage, we want to share our concept for your website with you. Instead of simply telling you what we intend building and sharing static pictures of dynamic web pages with you, we prefer to build a customised wireframe of your website. This wireframe showcases all of your website’s pages and gives you a visual idea of how our solutions will work to meet your goals. We don’t pay attention to design at this stage, so don’t expect sleek lines and gorgeous colours just yet. You can think of this phase as an architectural blueprint before the beautiful house build happens. Here’s a wireframe our team prepared for an earlier project.
The Web Design
This is where the fun begins, with our expert UX/UI designers bringing your wireframe to life.
At this stage, we take all of our discovery research and pair it with your ideas and brand identity. The result? A beautiful interactive design. Gone are the days of sending across no-personality PDFs or flat images of web pages and hoping you can imagine them on a browser. We will build you an interactive prototype design that you will be able to navigate like a real website. Of course, this is not an actual website, but it helps us all get clear on the final design before we move to the development phase. Here’s an example of the website we finished based on the above wireframe.
Website Development & Delivery
Before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world, we go underground for a couple of weeks. During this time, our development team is bringing your designs and wireframes to life by building your website. Just like any good product, before we set it free into the world, we will go through a testing a feedback phase. This is a serious and detailed testing time that helps us ensure everything is plugged in correctly and that your website is working properly .
Website Training & After Care
After we’ve finished your website, we’ll offer you some training videos that will give you the confidence and power to manage your site yourself. Of course, we’re always there if you need us. We have a series of aftercare packages available if you would like to retain our services and support as an ongoing arrangement. Check out our packages HERE.
