Our web development process divides a project into easily manageable phases. Although the process can vary slightly depending on a client’s requirements, the best practices and phases remain the same – no matter how big or small the project. Below are 5 essential steps of the design process that will help you understand how we design and develop websites and software on a professional scale.
Before getting started on any project, it’s important to have a solid foundation upon which to build. The Planning phase allows us to form a blueprint of the work to come. We will ask you questions to help understand your business and your needs in a website or software; we will discuss the project’s purpose, target audience, content, scalability, timeline, budget, and overall goals. Using the information we’ve gathered, we will draft a statement of work to ensure all your objectives are covered.
The Statement Of Work (SOW) Contract between ETG and a client will be drafted and signed before design and development begins. The SOW will include all phases, features, and specifications of a project, including a payment and milestone schedule. It will also list all agency and client responsibilities, expectations, and limitations so that there is no confusion down the road. The SOW will also include a forecast of project scope, duration, and completion. Because we work on a retainer as well as a per-project basis, you can determine which direction works best for you.
Whether you have already determined the look and feel of your project or you need some guidance, our expert team of designers will work closely with you to craft a site you can be proud of! Missing key elements like a company logo or unable to settle on a color palette? No problem; our in-house graphic artists are up-to-date on industry standards and trends and will work tirelessly to get everything just right. At the end of the Design phase, we will provide you with a mock-up that will serve as a preview of the development to come.
At this point, we will translate the graphical elements from the mock-up provided in the Design phase and start building your website using the latest technologies, languages, and industry best practices. Any contact forms, shopping carts, CMS add-ons and third party integrations are implemented and made functional during this phase. After an initial QA, you will be able to preview and explore your finished project. We will also test various devices and browsers for compatibility before walking you through how to fully proof your project.
After the previous four steps are completed and verified, we will release your project and intellectual property to you and push live. We offer maintenance and retainer packages to assist you in making future updates to your project – whether that includes backups, upgrades, or simply adding additional content down the road.
