Our Process

We typically begin the process by conducting a workshop to determine the primary elements of the project, including framework, navigation, content, functionality etc. From here, we develop a strategy and begin the process.

DISCOVER

Too often the key point is overlooked when designing an application. We need to understand your business and your customers. Our strategy focuses on the most important people of all – your customers.

DESIGN

Bringing your vision; mapping your site, laying it out in wireframes, and creating mockups for your validation is an exciting phase. We don’t want to leave our software engineers with anything to guess at.

DEVELOP

Now to produce code, the stuff that makes graphic elements and functional items work together. This process is iterative with lots of testing and verification. Honestly, this process never really ends.

DEPLOY

Once the website has met the standards for completion, it’s time to start building the buzz for when you’re ready to unveil it to the world. Now it’s time to celebrate!
