Our Process for Delivering Great Websites & Apps
Discovery and Specification
The first step in any project is for us to understand what you need:
This phase may include meetings with various stakeholders, research into unique requirements, and comparison with competitive sites.
We then create a written specification, which gives the design and development teams a clear statement of requirements.
Focus on Structure First
The specification focuses on the structure and functions of the site. It includes:
- The information architecture (how your content is organized and viewed)
- Key interaction designs (such as navigation, slideshows, tabs, and accordions)
- Special features required, such as lead capture, store locator, or ecommerce.
The specification gives you a document that serves as the project's foundation. You are free to use it however you want; if appropriate, we will provide a quote for implementation, and you can also use the specification to get alternative quotes. A details specification helps ensure you get an apples-to-apples comparison.
