What it’s like to work with us

Depending on your needs, a project may include the following phases:

1. Discovery

We really get to know your business: what you do, how you do it, and what sets you apart from the competition. We’ll talk with you about your business goals and strategies. If you have an existing website, we’ll look at how it’s working for you – and how it isn’t.

2. Design

web-designWe’ll design a fully customized website (or improvements to an existing site) to help it reach its full potential. We share first drafts of two or three design options with you, and then fine-tune the design to make sure it accurately conveys your brand. We make sure that all of the key decision makers have approved the design direction.

3. Development

Once you have approved the design, we move on to the meat of our work: building your website! We’ll code your site, and add all the new features you need. Web development usually takes a few weeks, depending on the project’s size, and we like to keep you in the loop by sharing our progress with you along the way. We conduct extensive website testing to make sure everything is running just right, then we deliver you a fully custom website that looks great on all modern browsers and devices.

4. Launch!

The big day! In the weeks leading up to launch, we’ll train you on adding and editing content to your new site. Once you’re comfortable with those tasks and everything looks just right, your site goes live and you get to show the world!

5. Post-launch

using slack for collaborationWe love to leave our clients confident enough to maintain their own sites, without our help. That said, we know you’re busy with a business to run, and might want a team behind you to maintain and update your website over the course of time. In that case, we are happy to manage your website maintenance.

We’re proud to say that many of our clients have enjoyed working with us so much that they’ve come back with additional projects, and recommended us to others. A project can be the beginning of a great long-term partnership.
