Web Design & Build Process
If there is one thing we know…
it’s how to build and design a pretty dang good website.
Not only are the sites we build gorgeous and responsive across all devices, but their streamlined design produces results for you.
"How?" you may ask.
Below is how we achieve such results
We will work with the client to determine what goals the new website needs to fulfill. I.e., what its purpose is.
Once we know the site's goals, we can define the scope of the project. I.e., what web pages and features the site requires to fulfill the goal, and the timeline for building the elements needed.
Sitemap and Beta-site creation
With the scope well-defined, we can start digging into the sitemap, defining how the content and features we defined in scope definition will work and link together.
Now that we have a bigger picture of the site in mind, we can start creating content for the individual pages, always keeping search engine optimization (SEO) in mind to help keep pages focused on a single topic. It's vital that we have real content to work with for our next stage.
With the site architecture and some content in place, we can start working on the visual brand. Depending on the client, this may already be well-defined, but we also might be defining the visual style from the ground up. Tools like our dev server will be used for accurate visual references.
Now, you've got all your pages defined and how they display to the site visitor, it's time to make sure it all works. With a combination of manual browsing on a variety of browsers and devices. Also using automated site crawlers we can identify everything from user experience issues to simple broken links. Tools like Sizzy & Screaming Frog will make this process more reliable.
Once everything's working perfectly, it's time to plan and execute your site launch! This should include hosting, maintenance and updates/ upgrades. Then a discussion should take place about how to let the world know about your fantastic new site.
