learn
Extraordinary websites start by understanding your requirements. We’ll ask you questions to understand your goals, image, budget, the markets you’d like to target, your content requirements and desired outcomes. We would cover everything you know and need at this point.
plan
Once we’ve learned what you need, it’s time to start planning how we are going to make it happen. We create a sort of mind-map of your site’s architecture, defining what sections go where, pages along with their flow and relationship to each other. We then create a functional specification which is a document that details the things your website must do, and how it will do them.
design
We’ll then start sketching and mocking-up your site. We test and choose various layouts, type sizes and colour palettes and identify what works best in order to communicate your website’s goals. We’ll review the mock ups with you and refine/revise accordingly until we have your 100% approval. You won’t even have to see our ugly mugs since we do everything online.
build
Once you approve the killer design, we start developing your website. We do this by building a working system that mimics the final design with clean, semantic code. Your site is then deployed to a staging environment where we’ll rigorously test its functionality and iron out any bugs. This is where all the magic happens. After that, we hand the system over to you for testing.
lift off
Once everyone is satisfied we’ll put your website into a launch-ready state. Your website will require content. At this point, we’ll work together with you to ensure you are comfortable with the whole process of using and populating your new website. When you’ve finally perfected the site, it’s time to release it to the public.
