We start every project with a kick-off workshop. During this workshop we will talk about your strategy and determine the goals of your new website. After this meeting we will make wireframes. These are very detailed digital sketches of every page. By making wireframes first, we can focus on the functionalities without being disctracted by design. Once the wireframes are approved, we can move on to the design phase.
We never use templates. All our designs are tailor made and unique. During the kick-off we will determine a design direction that fits your company and your target audience. Once the wireframes are approved, we usually start with the design of the homepage. You will have the opportunity to give feedback, and when you are satisfied with the result, we will continue with the rest of the pages.
Once the full web design is approved, our developers will translate the designs into a fully funtional website that works well on desktop and on mobile. Development is also fully custom, meaning we write our own code and don’t use templates. We use the WordPress platform to build on, ensuring you have an easy to use Content Management System. It is the most used CMS worldwide and it offers great stability and security.
For building your website we will go through 5 different phases.
We start every project with a kick-off meeting. During this meeting we discuss your strategy and determine the goals of your new website. We will ask a lot of questions, and possibly sketch the pages by hand. The direction in which we are going to design is also discussed. This meeting is important to gather all the information we need to start the project.
Before starting with the web development, we will make wireframes. These are very detailed digital sketches of every page. By making wireframes first, we can focus on the functionalities without being distracted by design. We will determine where to place important buttons, determine which links should go where, etc. In this phase you have the opportunity to give feedback throughout. Once the wireframes have been approved, we can proceed to the design phase.
Now we are entering the exciting phase. Your wireframes will be translated in a beautiful and unique web design! In the kick-off phase we will have discussed the general direction we wanted to go in. Now it is up to us to surprise you. We always start with your homepage. Once you have approved the homepage, we will move on with the rest of the pages. Once the full web design has been approved, we can move on to the development phase. It is time to make your website come to life!
Through web development we will create a functioning website! This is the longest phase, as we only provide tailored development solutions. This means we never use templates, but we build on the WordPress platform so that you get an easy to use CMS. It is the most widely used CMS in the world, which makes its stability and security unmatched. Our development team will work hard to make the website look great on both desktop and mobile devices. We first set up the website in a test environment. In this environment you can upload the content and we have the option to detect and resolve any minor errors that might occur.
