The Process of Web Development
There are many things to consider when you have decided to launch a website for your business, band, social group, personal project, etc. Our process is broken down in a series of steps that keeps you informed and engaged during the various stages of development. Here, in general, is how the process will work:
Initial contact with the focus and goal(s) of what your site should achieve.
We discuss your brand and business to gauge your target market online. Client provides overall goals and expectations from website, information, lead generation, shopping cart, etc. Pair this with a consultation about the layout, design and navigation of how the client envisions the site's construction (pages and links names for navigation, functionality of pages, etc.) and we will be prepared for the next stage.
Client is responsible for all content copy and images used on their website. If you have any current marketing materials, original artwork, design art work or a other files (PDF, ESP, PSD etc.) those are very helpful. Those files can be incorporated in the design of the overall Theme of your website's template.
The layout of the site is produced and a visual mock-up is sent for your approval.
The framework is installed, graphical template is sliced and programmed into the framework, and is then sent for your approval to move forward
Additional pages are created using the materials and copy provided previously discussed.
