Our approach is grounded in strong, transparent communication and a deep respect for our clients. You’ll always get our best council, and we’ll always act in your best interest. We work hard to demystify the web development process and ensure you’re with us at every step.
Typical Development Process
Scoping & Kickoff
Before we dive in, we learn what makes your company tick and how we can help you realize your broader goals for your website. Your technical project manager will begin regular check-ins with you and your team so you always know where your project stands.
Design / UX
We work closely with design partners and internal design teams to provide feedback on the feasibility and cost of planned features during the design / UX phase of your project — helping your project stay on schedule and within budget.
This is where we hit full stride. We’ll put a development and staging server in place so you can watch the website take shape. The engineering team then sets to work coding the project to plan—responsive theme development, page layouts, menus, UX, and other interactive elements.
With the content management system components in place, we’ll migrate content and get you access to work on pages as we build out custom UX elements and connect any third-party extensions and integrations.
Last 10% & Go Live
In the final 10% before launch, we’ll do front-end polish, training, documentation, user acceptance testing, and analytics set up. Then, once you’re ready, we’ll pick a day to launch your new website!
Launching your website is just the beginning. After your site goes live, you may choose to join Run State, our post-launch maintenance program, to get proactive, reliable support from our team on an ongoing basis.
