Collaborate, Design, Inspire, Display, Create, Promote, Communicate
FIRST, IDENTIFY KEY GOALS, BUDGET AND TIME FRAME
What is the purpose of the site and who are you communicating with? What is your budget and what role would you like to take in the design process. We’ll evaluate your project and set up a timeframe and budget to fit your needs.
DEVELOPING A DESIGN IDEA
What do you want to tell your audience with the look and feel of your website? We'll help you imagine a design concept for your site that will complement and enhance your content and message.
CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES
Will it be custom coded site or a content-management system (CMS) like Squarespace or Wordpress? What best suits your needs? Going forward, do you want to have the ability to make content edits and additions?
We'll choose the best platform and template to make it happen.
Content is key. Together we’ll organize, create and edit your text, images and media to best tell your story.
LAYOUT AND PAGE CREATION
A clear site architecture is so important for a great user experience. We use a mobile-first philosophy because so many sites are viewed on phones now. We organize your content with your design concept in mind so your viewers can move smoothly through your pages and get the information they want.
As the project progresses we’ll share the site with you so you can give feedback.
The fun begins with connections to professional and social media, e-commerce, or video, sound, blogs, feeds and online appointment scheduling. We can leverage the latest plug-ins to add special functionality or go under the hood of the content management system to tweak the code for custom function and style. The website ecosystem is constantly changing and new options are popping up all the time that can enhance your digital message.
NUTS AND BOLTS
As the site gets ready for launch, we deal with the nuts and bolts, the part that makes most people's eyes glaze over and their ears smoke. Things like domain name hosting, mapping and redirects, email set-up and forwarding, custom 301 and 304 pages (seeing to it that your viewers don’t get lost at your old site), final search engine optimization (SEO), site speed review, testing and problem solving.
