Web Development Process

The second most popular question we get asked, as web developers and web designers is:

“How long does it take to develop and launch a website?”

1. Checklist

First, we make sure that we have everything we need to begin the project. We will need your domain and hosting details (if necessary) as well as your creative brief and all the website requirements.

2. Sitemap

Next, we organize all the information for the site into a hierarchical and meaningful structure to make it easy for users to find what they need and easy for website owners to publish their story.

3. Prototype

Then we produce a prototype or "proof of concept" to see how the website might work in the browser and to test a users interaction. Once finalized, we design an interface for the website.

4. Coding

The coding phase is where we wave our magic wizard tool and turn your beautiful prototype and interface into a working website. It's all very technical here so we won't bore you with the details; needless to say we spend a lot of time indoors during this process.

5. Launch

Finally, we put your new website through our 42 point pre-flight check and then launch it into cyber space so that the rest of the world can visit ii on computers, tablets, and smartphones. Phew!
