our web design process

01

Strategy

During the strategy phase, we meet together virtually to learn about you and your business, goals, audience, and the vision you have for your website. We can use content you already have, or work together to develop visual branding and content. 

02

Design

During the design phase, we work iteratively to translate your vision and concepts into tangible designs. Building upon the foundation laid in the strategy phase, we craft wireframes—essential blueprints that guide the layout and functionality of your website. These wireframes serve as the framework upon which we layer design elements.

03

Build

During the build phase, we utilize WordPress to transform your approved design into a fully functional website. This involves setting up the platform, customizing themes, and crafting each page with meticulous attention to detail. We prioritize best practices to ensure a seamless user experience and keep you informed with regular updates and opportunities for feedback. 

04

Optimize

The final phase of our website design process involves rigorous testing, refining as per your feedback, and optimizing for seamless functionality across the most popular devices and browsers. We'll complete basic SEO according to best practices, and get your website ready to launch!

SEO, or Search Engine Optimization, is the practice of optimizing websites to improve their visibility and ranking on search engine results pages. The aim of SEO is to enhance a website’s chances of being found by search engines and, consequently, by users searching for information, products, or services related to the site’s content.
