Over the last 10 years we've completed a large variety of projects for many different businesses. As a result we've had the opportunity to fine tune our process and skill set to produce some great results.
Our first step in any project is understanding the reasoning behind the project, and the factors that will affect it's success. Who are your customers, and what do they want? How does this website fit into the picture?
Design is not only making the website beautiful, but designing the way your customer interacts with the site, how the website can fit your businesses needs, and the structure of the information to ensure it's all read and understood.
During this phase we build the website, to the specifications established in previous stages. We're purists, so we hand code all our HTML & CSS, to make sure it's efficient, and meets the W3C standards.
It's important to make sure that the website doesn't lose it's relevancy over time - it's a well known fact that this frustrates your visitors. Also, by monitoring certain aspects of the websites performance, it can reveal opportunities that might not be obvious otherwise.
