Our Approach to Web Design in Eugene
Wondering how we work with you to create a website? Not sure you’ve done enough research or understand the options that are available to you? Here’s a description of how our web development process works. You’ll see how closely you, the client, are guided through the process and given both guidance and control.
Phase 1 – The Discovery Session
The website process starts with an interview. We sit down with you, in person whenever possible, and talk about who you are, what you do, and what you want in your website. We want to be able to accurately describe your business and represent your company culture. While we talk, we’ll ask you a series of questions to find out what you are looking for – even if you don’t know what that is yet. We’ll also talk about visual design, layouts, logos, and all of our marketing options.
Phase 2 – The Mock Up
Once we have a feeling for what you want, one of our designers will sit down and begin to conceptualize your design – sometimes they start with a computer, sometimes by hand. After some thinking, exploring, sketching, and refining, the designer will create a mock up. This mock up is a general outline of how the site will look without all the content filled in. We will then present the mock up to you, the client. If for any reason you aren’t thrilled with the design, we’ll make another one, free of charge. Once you’ve selected exactly what you want, we’ll move on building the more detailed aspects of your site.
Phase 3 – The Design
Phase 4 – The Content
With the website nearly complete, it’s time to put in the final touches. During this phase, we will present and guide you through your website so you can review and add any additional features you want. If you want to include any additional pages or services, now is the time to let us know. Once you have provided us with all of your requests, we will get to work making it happen to prepare for the launch.
Phase 5 – The Launch
Once the new content is in place, we’ll stress test, proofread, and triple-check the website for perfection. On the final day, we’ll ceremoniously launch your website onto the World Wide Web where it can be seen by the world. If you like, we’ll also post it to our portfolio, which benefits both of us.
