The "Discovery Phase" is when we lay out the entire project from start to finish. You will come to our office and sit down with our developers and designers to go over the project to make sure everyone is on the same page. We will then put together a full spec sheet and wireframes.
Our designers will put together a site design based on your notes and samples of sites that you like. We will consider all functionalities and find the appropriate framework that will incorporate all of your project goals. It will then be sent over for your approval before front-end development begins.
Once the overall design of the site is decided upon we will begin working on the user experience. This includes placement of calls to action on pages, the flow of the site, making sure it is easy to use, etc.
We will be using PHP / MySQL to build the back-end of the website to ensure that it is scalable and secure. Our custom framework is modular, which means if a year down the road you want to add a new feature it can be done easily, without having to rebuild the entire site.
After the design and user experience are approved we will move onto the front-end development. We use the latest W3C standards, HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery to build a front-end that is fast, scalable and is cross-browser compatible for Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 7+, Safari 4+ and Chrome.
Throughout the development process we will be testing the functionality and appearance on multiple browser platforms. Once the site has been fully populated and is in preparation to go live we will initiate an extensive Q&A on the complete site.
This is the exciting part! After your site has been thoroughly tested, optimized for search engines, and designed exactly how you want down to the last pixel, we go live! All of our sites have a 30 day maintenance period, meaning if you don't love something, we'll change it, free of charge.
