Our Process

Take a look into how we produce your website!


Everything begins with a conversation. Our dedicated staff will meet with you to determine your needs and outline a project that helps your organization reach its goals.


After we our initial conversation, our team will meet to review your website needs and identify solutions. We begin drafting samples and demo sites to demonstrate for you, and when you’re satisfied we can begin development!


In the development phase, our team turns your vision into reality. This is where the project comes to life; we will work on actual design, development, and strategy! Our coordinator will communicate with you every step of the way to address new challenges and changes to the project.


Before we unveil the site we have to make sure it works! We test website responsiveness across all platforms and browsers to make sure you’re good to go.


Finally, you can show off your brand new website! Feel free to contact us for more projects or to support any projects we’ve already completed.
