After few in-person meetings and a couple of phone calls, we will have the base for the foundation of your company new online home.
During these meetings, we will get to learn about your company performance in your industry and analysis of your competitors online strategy.
The Discovery Process is us getting to know you and your business, and it provides us with the information we need to design a site focused on achieving your goals.
Now that we have a plan it is time to gather the content for your website, which includes text, images, pictures, videos, and other content.
In most cases client presents the content and resources that will be available to us during the rest of the process. This includes images, fonts, content, videos and so on.

Now that we have all data collected for the project, here is where website start to take shape. From choosing the right colors, logo, visual elements like buttons, section boxes and so on, is extremely important part of web design because it sends immediate message to the visitors and it forms the basis of the company’s visual identity and influence how the visitors perceive the brand.

Finally, prototype website version is analyzed together with a client to make any necessary changes and define the best option to move forward.
This is where developing a website and its functionality really starts. From choosing the right Framework (custom made template) for final look and functionality, buttons, sliders, filters work and enable visitors to navigate around the website flawlessly. Next step is to integrate client content such as services information, products, description, videos (if have any) and other types of content.
With all that, we constantly keep in mind about website performance, security and comply with all relevant web standards such as the standards for HTML, CSS, XML and XSL.
Final task is to add markup to the web pages. This step is important for search engine optimization (SEO), Social Media purposes, such as Facebook link share description and image tags.
The website testing basically means it’s almost ready to go live. Here we focus on functionality, security and performance to make sure everything is working perfectly on all devices across the board.
Before getting web on line, we encourage client to test the website, such as user experience, broken links, incorrect content and forms. We make sure that our clients are %100 satisfied before official launching the site and that we make any necessary changes requested by our client.
Now that website is live, we can start working on integrating web analytics services, such as Google Analytics and Google Search Console which allows webmasters to check indexing status and optimize visibility of client’s website.
This can be only done on the live server in order to associate the services with the domain and make the necessary check-ups and adjustments.
Unfortunately, this last step of web design process is not familiar to everyone, a lot of clients think that getting website live should end the collaboration with their web agency.
What really happens in the maintenance phase is that web agency provide support and troubleshoot any issue that your visitors might experience during their visit.
If you are familiar with the WordPress, you know that requires multiple times plugins and core updates per month to keep it current and functional. Using a different agency to modify your website frequently results in higher costs and longer time, even for very small changes.
