Our design process is based on the following
- Step 1: Discover
- Step 2: Design
- Step 3: Develop
- Step 4: Quality Testing & Deploy
- Step 5: Maintenance
A website should be designed as a reflection of you and your business, so it is imperative that we understand your objectives, goals, and expectations of your website. What is your target market? What benefits will this site provide? Does your site need a shopping cart, email address database, or user access?
Based on information provided, our team of designers will begin creating the look and feel of your website. As we go along, you will have the opportunity to see and comment on particular designs until we narrow down the exact appearance you’re looking for. Here, we’ll also finalize a flow chart / sitemap before continuing into development.
This is the stage that our developers will actually program and configure the functionality of your site. All the designs, images, and provided content will be incorporated here while internal links, front-end/back-end functionality, flash, maps, and other features become enabled. Onsite search engine optimization (SEO) may also be performed, if requested.
Quality Assurance & Deployment:
After development completion your project is then passed to our quality assurance team to ensure seamless functionality and display. The site will be tested for valid CSS & HTML in all major browsers and mobile devices if applicable. Upon your approval the site will be launched. (see our hosting section for more details)
Now that your site is live, it doesn’t just end there. All of our websites include warranty. If any page malfunctions, repairs will be made promptly at no extra charge. One of the greatest mistakes small businesses make is letting their content get stale or even abandoning their site without taking advantage of its powerful marketing presence. To counter this, Halcyon Creations offers support and internet marketing packages that are recommended to all clients.
