How we work - our process
How we work - our process
A short introduction
Once you’ve contacted us by phone or email, it’s time for a first introduction. At our office, while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee, we check whether we can do something for each other in the field of web design.
If it turns out that we fit together and can deliver what you are looking for, we will continue to the second round at your office.
The second round
When it is clear that we fit together and that we can live up to all expectations, it is time to enter the second part of the web design process. We would like to invite ourselves to your office to get more clarity about what you are doing and to taste the atmosphere on the shop floor.
The third round
If we are successful in the second round and there is a click, we will send a proposal for the creation of a new website. If we agree, we start with the web design plan of approach and work together towards a new web design.
Web design plan of approach
Once we have received an approved proposal, we will get down to work. A final schedule will be drawn up, describing the stages described below. It is then clear for each phase and each week who is responsible for what.
Making a website starts with us with a kick-off workshop. During the workshop, the goals and the structure of the website will be examined together with your team. Based on the insights we get from this session, the first wire frames will be made. In doing so, we focus mainly on clearly presenting all important information and the correct website structure. It also makes clear where the Call-To-Actions should be located, where and how much text should be written, and how people navigate the website. The aim of the workshop is to create a framework for the website.
Having a website created is a process in which our designers, developers, project manager and you as the client work together. We initially make sure that it is clear what is expected of whom. If this goes well, an attractive website will soon be delivered.
Wire frames - Phase 1
After the workshop it is clear what you want and we will continue to orientate ourselves internally on the first phase of the project. Who is the target group, what does the target group appeal to, what are the wishes and do they fit into the final design of the website. The answers to these questions are processed in the so-called wireframes. These frames are used for the web design of the site.
Once the wireframes have been approved, we start with the real design and start programming the website.
Web design - Phase 2
Once all the components within the functional document are known, we can start designing the web design. The most important pages are given a unique design designed by our web designers.
The design will then be presented to you in the office. In this phase there is room for feedback and parts of the design can be changed. Once the design has been approved, we proceed to the next phase in which the design is converted into code.
Web development - Phase 3
In the third phase, the code is created on the basis of the wireframes and the web design. Our developers translate the visual to html, css and php until there is a working website.
The first version of the website will be installed on a test environment. In this environment we can test all functionalities and workflow in detail. We do this on the basis of a checklist, which has been drawn up in cooperation with an external test consultancy firm.
The last details will then be filled in. During this period it is also possible for you to see the website and to post content. The result of phase 3 is a working WordPress website.
Live - Phase 4
The last phase goes mainly consists of the live course of the website. We check whether everything works, whether the speed of the website is sufficient and whether everything works properly. From this point on, you will also have the opportunity to review the website and show it to all your colleagues. If things do not work properly, we will ensure that this is resolved as quickly as possible. By default, Google Analytics is set up and activated.
It sometimes happens that it takes some time for a new website to be visible in other places as well. You can still see the old website. This does not mean that the website is not working. There is an overlap here. This ensures that the website is always accessible.
What else do you need to know?
What else do you need to know?
Speed website and develop street
A fast website is the key to success. Slow websites have a lower conversion and a higher bounce rate. To ensure optimal speed, we work closely with the market leader in the field of WordPress hosting. Good to know is that the speed and development street are only guaranteed if the hosting of the website is also provided by us.
A secure website is very important nowadays. After all, you do not want personal data to be thrown out on the street. We make sure that the WordPress core is always automatically updated to the latest version to ensure that any security holes are immediately closed.
The systems on which our websites operate are monitored by highly regarded agencies such as SecTheory and Sucuri. They shall also ensure that an external penetration test is carried out at least once a year.
The average lead time of the new website is 10 weeks. After agreement, we draw up a schedule with deadlines for both parties. It is crucial for the lead time that these deadlines are treated as such by both parties.
We work with a deposit of 50%. The remaining 50% after completion of our work (development completed and feedback processed).
After completion there is a period of up to 2 months during which imperfections in the website will be remedied at no extra cost. Additional adjustments and support for the website can be purchased with our strippenkaart. This will take a number of hours per month (at special rates) that can be spent freely.
The content in the form of images and photos must be supplied. If this is not possible, we can provide them at an extra cost. is recorded as an optional item.
Testing and correction of deficiencies
Having a website made hardly ever happens without imperfections. In a period of maximum 2 months after delivery (the moment the website is actively put on the domain) these can be reported and we fix them without extra costs. Any imperfections reported after this period will be considered as additional work.
