During this part of the process the design team collaborates and brainstorms the ideas for the design of your new site. We will review the questionnaire you provided and the notes from our kickoff meeting. We will then go to work on creating a mock-up of our vision of your home page. The home page is the first impression for your visitors, so it is very important that the designers take their time to evaluate the best way to present the most important elements. Once we have created a design that we believe meets your needs we will schedule a time to review the design with you. At this point you will have the opportunity to evaluate the design and discuss with us any potential changes. Keep in mind we will not move onto the interior design until you are completely satisfied with the home page design
Design the Interior Pages
The design team works on a design to be used on the interior pages of your site. This step in the process is typically faster since the bulk of the creativity is used to create the home page. It is, nonetheless, a different design and depending on the complexity of the site itself it is difficult to determine an exact timeline. Again, once we have created a design that we believe illustrates and identifies your needs we will schedule a time to review. As we did with the home page design you will also have the opportunity to evaluate and discuss with us any potential changes. Once you have approved both the home page and interior we will move into phase three: Development.
During this process the team works to translate the design into html code and install it on a live development server. Depending on the complexity of the design of your site, this part of the process can be lengthy. If your site has custom functionality or coding that will also impact the timeline. As soon as we have the code written and installed on our development server we can begin to load content. During the Development phase it is the perfect time for you to organize your content so we can get it loaded as soon as it is ready. Be sure to provide the content for each page, and all necessary images and/or files.
