Modern & Effective Design and Website Development Process
Our Design & Website Development Process
First in order to begin the website development project we make sure that we have everything we need from you. This includes your hosting details, your domain and your creative brief and all the requirements for the website.
Next we create an organizational chart of all the information for the website. We create a hierarchical and meaningful structure which makes it user friendly for website visitors, and easy for website owners to attract visitors by publishing their story.
Next we create a prototype or "proof of concept" in order to see how the website will work in the browser and to begin to visualize how users might interact with it. Once this step is finalized, we begin to design the website development interface.
The next step of the project is where we create our magic with special tools and turn your prototype and interface into a fully functioning and beautiful website. Because it is very technical to describe, we won't bore you with the details. During this process, a lot of time and attention to detail will pay off with a successful project that is ready to be displayed in the next step.
In the final step we put test your new website with our pre-flight check and then launch it into cyber space so that the world can visit it on desktop computers, tablets and mobile phones. Phew!
