We follow a very methodical process in the creation of web site , here is a simple description of our process…what I like to call the 4 D’s
Phase 1 : Define
During this stage we learn from our clients the full scope of their project.
- What do they want to achieve with the website?
- Who is the target audience?
- Who is the competition?
Armed with this information a tactical plan is developed and a full proposal produced to proceed with the project.
This phase of any project is always FREE
Phase 2 : Design
Keeping in mind usability and good web practices a polished concept design is created. This is a collaborative phase where client’s feedback is used to refine the design and helps us “home in” on the optimimal “winning” concept design.
Our tools of chice for the design phase are Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.
Phase 3: Develop
The “pictures” created in the design phase comes to life in the development phase of the project. The designs are coded to be understood by web browsers and undergo strict testing to ensure cross browser compatibility. Any functionailty assocaited with a web site is added during this stage.
Phase 4: Deploy
Once the site is complete it is ready to be launched online. The site is uploaded to a hosting account and publicised to the world.
