Our Process


The first step to developing your awesome site is to start gathering information. This involves getting to know you, your business, your industry and your competitors. More specifically, we take the time to understand your business goals, your target market, the type of content required and how a website can help you achieve your goals.


This part of the process involves reviewing the content required for your site. We then work with you to develop a content development strategy, and decide what is needed to get your message across to the people that visit your site. We also look at your SEO during this process by identifying key words, checking your current search ranking and develop an ongoing maintenance plan.

Wire Frame

Once we have a better understanding of what content is going to be used on your site, we start the process of developing the layout. This involves designing the structure in varying degrees of detail, until we have a working document that illustrates the overall flow of the site. If required, we will engage with you at this stage to determine any possible adjustments.


Now that we know how the site will work, the fun part starts. During this phase we start populating the site with images, color, copy and any other content developed during the planning. Your site will start to take shape, and the user interface starts to look more like the finished product.


This is the first time we start to involve the internet and other online tools. I know… crazy right!? This is where all the technical stuff starts happening like HTML, CSS, JS and a whole lot of other acronyms used to build the internet. It’s at this point that all the connections between pages and clickable elements start to get wired up. 


The launch phase is where we do all our final testing and tweaking before announcing to the world that you have a new awesome website! We check that everything works as we expect it to and we apply Google analytics tools so you can monitor performance. We then finalize the SEO and start the process of handing the site over.
