Project Management. World-Class Design. Advanced WordPress Development.
It all starts with effective project management. Our team of web strategists and project managers work closely with our clients to provide website planning services and support before beginning the web design and development phases. We help you lay a firm foundation of what your site will say and how it will say it. Our designers and developers then move forward with building your project using industry best practices, advanced development techniques, and world-class design.
Define and Plan
We take the time to meet you in person and listen to your needs.
Our collaborative approach, experience, and exhaustive research produces an effective website that is customized for your business or organization’s unique needs. Our team of designers and strategists interviews your team to understand your business objectives, understand your audience, and evaluate your competition. Together we’ll develop a thorough project brief detailing your goals, objectives, and expectations for our development team. Our iterative planning process gives you complete transparency letting you know what you can expect at every stage of the process.
Project management strategy keeps your project on time and on budget.
Architecture and Navigation: The site map and wire frames are built in this stage and presented to you for timely review and feedback. Once these essential elements are approved we move to the design phase.
Design and Refine
