Our process is your journey. While each of the project we take on is unique, we’ll always stick to the following 4 key phases:
Before we do anything, we have to understand you. We need to understand what makes you and your business unique. We want to see what are your goals and objectives so that we can produce the result that both you and I are proud of.
In the discovery phase, we usually start by asking a series of questions to better understand your business, your customers, your pain points, and your goals. Based on the discovery results, we’ll provide a custom quote with a full summary of our discussion, project phases, and breakdown of deliverables included in the project.
This entire discovery process is free and at no cost to you.
Research and Wireframe Design
After the proposal has been approved, we start by proceeding with the research phase. In this phase, we find out your target audience demographics, interests and behaviors. We also visit your competing websites, and analyze key design strategies.
While researching, we also start brainstorming about the choice of colors, placement of call-to-actions, fonts usage and other intricate details. We proceed with the wireframe design and it’s also your first chance to visualize your website. This is also the stage where we gather your feedbacks, and then make necessary adjustments before proceeding with the designing of the rest of the website.
Design and Development
Once we’ve received your sign-off on the wireframe design, we’ll proceed with the design and development of the rest of the website, kicking off two phases in unison. In the first phase, we gather from you all materials
including content copy and graphics required for the website.
At the same time, we also kick off the technical side of the design process and that includes working on website navigation, user interface design, mobile responsive and more. We’ll present you with the final version of the website and your feedback is especially important during this stage.
Launch and Training
Once we’ve everything in place, the wait is over and we can finally launch your website online. Before the launch day, we will also perform final validation and testing to make sure your website provides a uniform user experience across all browsing devices.
We hand over all assets for your website and also provide a comprehensive training session to ensure your team has the expertise and confidence to handle the website.
The time it takes to build a website varies and depends on multiple factors:
For a typical end-to-end project, it will take 1-2 months to complete. These estimates are based on normal design timings and if you’ve a deadline to meet, please talk to our website designer and developers to see how we can help.
The process of taking over a completed website can be daunting, and for this very reason, we will be providing online training sessions to ensure that you have the basic knowledge to add content and make minor changes down the road effectively.
We don’t believe in building a website and then charging exorbitant prices later on just to upload some photos or visuals.
Of course! In the discovery phase, we will go through a comprehensive list of questions with you to understand your needs and requirements of the redesign work.
This is an important step as the questions asked will help us in finding out the issues you are facing in your old website.
Yes! From big corporate companies to small businesses, we offer a range of monthly care plans designed to reduce the workload of your in-house team, and also ensure that your website is updated with the latest content and patches.
