Our Process:

URL Structure, Wireframe, Mock-Up & Development

We create wireframes and mock-ups so the client is happy with the look and feel before going into development. It’s important to understand and visualize what this process looks like.  Below are examples so you can better understand our process.

URL Structure

Just like a house needs a solid foundation so does a website. We create a URL structure, user flow and visual sitemap to ensure the website architecture is in place.

Wireframe

We create a skeleton of each important page to organize the layout. We get the sign-off from the Client before proceeding onward.

Mockup

We bring your site to life by placing imagery and text on the page so you can see how it will look on the actual website.

Development

We create a link where you can start viewing how the site will look across all devices.
