What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We’ll chat about your project, ideally face to face or over the phone. We’ll look at your goals, analytics, brand, personality, competitors and your inspiration. This will allow us both to map out what it is you’re really after.
Using the mood board and feedback, we will spend another day or two creating a Style Tile—a canvas of higher fidelity ideas—focusing on what’s important to you, such as personality and typography. This isn’t a website at this stage, it’s the art direction. We’ll discuss and refine it. This Style Tile will form the base of our work.
Before we can transform the Style Tile into a website, we need to work on the content that’ll form the base of the design. We’ll work out the hierarchy to ensure we deliver the right content to the visitor at the right time. It’ll help us make design decisions.
With the content sorted, we’ll look at structuring it into some layout. At this stage, it’ll be a cross between wireframes, style tiles, and user interface work.
By now we have a pretty good idea of what things are going to look like. We have or content structured, our branding nailed, and some layout elements mocked up. Now it’s time to make a website! We’ll usually start with the homepage and work out from there.
This phase might also include designing icon sets, illustration work, and even refining our Style Tile with any new findings to help move things along.
