how we do it
Our 4 -Step Responsive Web Design Process
Researching is the first step to everything and an integral part of our responsive web design process. Among other things, we study your company's field, explore other websites in that field, and compile and analyze data. The most crucial part of researching, however, is determining the target audience. If you think you're catering to teenagers but you're really catering to the elderly, you might have a problem. Before we begin designing and creating it is vital to understand the who, what, where, and why of everything that goes into the site.
On to the fun part: designing the site. This part of our responsive web design process is all about creating an architectural layout of the site. Now, a lot of this is up to you, the customer. Do you want a classic boxed content, a hero image on the homepage, or maybe a one page layout? Your choice. Of course, we help guide you in the right direction based on that target audience and your brand itself, but make no mistake, a large portion of this step will be in your hands.
Now comes the birth of the site. After we've determined a framework for the site in the design stage, we can start building. Unlike the design stage, this part falls upon us. We'll use custom layouts and custom css to emulate the agreed upon design as well as create rich content that will optimize SEO. Unlike the design stage, this part falls entirely upon us; now, that doesn't mean you won't hear from us. You will have access to the site throughout the entire process so you can check on our progress at your leisure. We will also give you regular updates as to our progress and should we have any comments/questions from the design stage, we will contact you. Included in the develop phase is a testing sub-phase. We test across all devices and web providers as we develop and, post completion, we do a final triple-check before activating the site.
The manage phase takes place the moment the site goes live. To ensure proper functionality we make sure to check every website we have ever created at least once a week. We check for WordPress updates, SEO performances, and more to optimize the site's performance. This phase also includes any maintenance you desire. Simply contact us and we will make any changes desired for a small hourly fee.
