Our Collaborative Process
Getting to Know You
We’ll begin with discovery meetings to discuss what’s important to you and your goals for your new website. We’ll provide a list of discovery questions prior to our meetings to help guide our conversations. We’ll gather in-depth information about your organization, as well as research and analysis of other websites within and outside your industry. We’re here to learn about you and help realize your vision for the future.
Wireframes + Design Layouts
Wireframes are created for 5-8 page types. Once flow of content is signed off on, 2-3 design comps are created for the home page and one interior page. Each comp will offer a unique perspective on concept, layout, color, fonts, etc.
Design comps are reviewed with you, then sculpted into a singular design that is carried out through the 5-8 page types established during wireframing. These design layouts serve as a visual guide for the Development Phase.
All pages of your new website will be built, using the final design as a guide. This phase involves installing & configuring the database, CMS (WordPress), installing & configuring appropriate plug-ins, and custom PHP and responsive CSS code styling to match your final design comp.

Training will be provided on how to update and make changes to your website, via an easy-to- use, web-based page editor and administration interface.
