During the initial web design discussion process, we review your overall objective for having a website, and on that basis determine the goals of your site, your target audience (i.e., whether it is business to business type or business to consumer), and accordingly focus on various developmental and technological options.
Armed with the information gathered from phase one, our expert designers who are involved in the discussion process, begins piecing together to form a feasible plan for your web site, such as diagrams, task lists and site maps.
This is in fact the most vital segment of the whole project, as we prepare the fundamental components for your entire project. Also, during the planning phase, our web designer will help you choose what technologies should be implemented. Elements such as interactive forms, ecommerce, flash, etc. are meticulously considered when planning your web site.
Once the general design structure has been approved, it is now time to determine the look and feel of your site. Also during the design phase, our designers would integrate various elements such as the company logo or colors to help reinforce the identity of your company on the web site.
As a coordination practice, our designers will send you an email with the mock-ups for your web site, while the work on site is still in progress. This is usually a .jpg image of what the ultimate design will look like. The most essential purpose for this is that it gives you the opportunity to express your likes and dislikes on the site design before it is completely finished. After this the development phase begins…
The developmental stage is the point where our developers blend the pixel perfect mockups in their hands, along with the text, images and graphic elements and use them to create the actual, functional site.
This segment involves custom application development for any of the dynamic (functional, customizable) elements such as interactive contact forms, flash animations or ecommerce shopping carts are implemented and made functional during this phase, as well. These consist of writing valid XHTML/CSS code that conforms to current web standards, maximizing functionality, as well as accessibility for as large an audience as possible. Thus, the development phase is often the most time intensive.
Testing & Launching:
As soon as the coding is done, our development team will then perform a preliminary test for things such as the complete functionality of forms, the links and the navigation are all tested from development to submission, as well as testing for last minute compatibility issues (viewing differences between different web browsers), ensuring that your web site is optimized to be viewed properly in the most recent browser versions.
During this testing phase users’ feedback on the functionality of the website’s features is important. When your approval is granted, it is now ready to launch and we push it into production for final publishing online. Eventually, this indicates the official launch of your site, as it is now viewable to the public.
