First we will begin the process by asking each client to provide a detailed idea of what they would like to see as an end product, as well as of the needs they need met. A document describing these desires is then developed with the client that outlines the aesthetic, technical, functional, and financial aspects of the project requested.
Based on the information gathered, we will present the specification document to the client for feedback, and if requested, we will make any final modifications. At this point, if the client is satisfied with on-paper concept for their web site, we will then begin to collect all necessary materials and assets from the client. This includes content, logos, and photos/stock photos.
After all materials have been collected, the visual concept stage will begin starting with a mock-up of the overall design interface. Once a mock-up is completed it is sent to the client for approval and input. The project will not go forward from this stage until the client is 100% satisfied with the proposed design.
Once a final design has been signed off on by the client, work begins on developing it into a functional website. This stage involves hand coding of all pages and the addition of all necessary components.
The last step before completion is testing the website to insure it passes all technical specifications as well as current usability standards. If everything checks out, the final design is launched and all work is delivered to the client.
