At Flagstaff Web Architects we believe our clients input is vital to the creative process. We work together with our clients to create user-friendly, beautiful, search engine optimized websites.
The outline below will give you an idea of what to expect from us as we move through each stage of production.
LET US SHOW YOU
The first step in any online project is research. With so many tools available to us, it’s necessary to make this a priority for any web adventure. We try and gather as much information as possible about your business, what the end goals of the project may be, who is your current or possible client base, and what functionality will be required for the completed project.
Once enough information is gathered we strategize on the best layout, design, and components needed for a smooth transition from design to development through the final launch phase.
Once the research has been completed we start the creative process. This process can take many different forms, some apparent some tactful, all to the benefit of the projects overall goals. This process can include many different things including branding, multimedia development, search engine optimization, interactive design, and visuals to help with the projects marketing aims.
Making certain the creative design guides the user instead of confuses them is a very important part of this process and ensures a pleasant experience for everyone.
After creating the layout and design of the project (with your permission), we move on to the actual compiling of the design. This is the most time-consuming part of any website development process. We start to bring the design and functionality to life and apply it to the framework we have created. Once we are certain you will be happy with our work, we upload the project to our online server for you to view.
Our development process has been streamlined with over 20 years of experience developing websites. This allows for a greater, more robust functionality and, of course, saves our clients’ money.
At this point, we ask that you give us any last minute changes to the design of the site. This may include image variations, changes to the copy or any last minute revisions you may come up with. Once the changes are made we do a very thorough last minute test to make certain all is running smoothly. This includes the functionality of forms, cross-browser differences and making certain the responsive design looks beautiful on all devices.
Now that any last minute changes have been made and the site has been thoroughly tested we can move on to the moment of glory, launch.
