Our Website Design Process

Our web designers have one goal in mind, and that’s your business. We know how difficult it can be to manage social media and online marketing avenues when your business needs your full attention. We’re passionate about finding innovative ways to highlight you in a way that not only looks good but ultimately, works great.

  1. Research and planning
  2. Sitemap and wireframe creation
  3. Content development
  4. Website review
  5. Integration and go-live

1) Research and planning

The first step of designing a website is the research and planning phase. This is where we get to know you, what you do, and why you need a website. Not only will this help us in the overall design process, but will give us an idea of what you’re focused on the most. We’ll research what your competitors are doing and will set out to make a plan for how to enhance your brand’s virtual presence.

2) Sitemap and wireframe creation

Your website design and its development go hand-in-hand. In our kickoff meeting, we’ll work with you to define the scope of your website. This will involve determining which web pages are needed, what content to pull over from your current website, and what new features you’d like to see. As we create a design mockup, we’ll keep the initial goals in mind to give you a preview of what our team can do.

3) Content development

Once you’ve selected a design you love, we’ll start building a completely functional website. This will include developing new content, optimizing pages for search queries, and ensuring a positive user experience from start to finish. During this phase, we’ll involve you as much as possible to ensure the information is accurate and valuable to your target audience.

4) Website review

Once the content has been written and uploaded to the website, we’ll send the website for you to review in full. This is the phase where you’ll get to carefully comb through each page, photo, and paragraph to tell us exactly what you want. You’ll also have the opportunity to look in detail at the design elements. Our web design team takes pride in working with you to create a website you can be proud of.

5) Integration and go-live

After you’ve approved the content and design, we begin integrating all features into your domain and optimizing it for mobile use. Our technical web developers will ensure that your site’s pages, buttons, and plugins are fully functional on all browsers and devices. Once we complete our go-live checklist, your new website will be ready to view! This process usually takes about 24-48 hours, and we’ll keep you updated every step of the way.
