Our Process

You’ve got problems. Some other companies call them “situations” or “challenges” or something that sounds vaguely more positive, but let’s face it — they’re problems. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be calling. You’ve come to the right place. We solve problems creatively.

 
  • Full Service

    You’re ready for a tip-to-tail standards-compliant website design and build project. We make a plan, design the look and feel, and build it to your specifications. Plus, the work comes with a six-month warranty.

  • Website Design Services

    If you just need a kickin’ design, and want us to hand it off to another app developer for coding, testing and implementation, we’re cool with that. We’ll bring our dozen years of design experience to get you noticed.

  • Agency Model

    Your agency is known for its outstanding visual sensibility. Just say “take this design and build it for us.” We’ll write the code, test it, and launch it on your client’s server. And, of course, it’s all under warranty for six months.

  • Static Templates

    You have the design, and a programmer that’s building a custom system for you. Cool! Let us create clean, easy-to-implement, standards-compliant HTML that can easily integrate into your app.


We don’t use Six-Sigma, and we’re not ISO-9001 certified. The process we use, really, is common sense. (Can we trademark that? No? All right then.)

Plan. This problem you have? We need to wrap our minds around it. Cogitate. Let it simmer. We know you’re anxious to see results, but we don’t know your business like you do. We need to make sure we understand what you want before we figure out how to make it happen. When we think together and plan early on, we’re writing a recipe for a smooth project.

Design. Maybe you have a design already in mind, maybe you don’t. Thanks to our careful planning (wink wink) we’ll know exactly what you need. Drawing from our deep well of design thinking, we can carefully craft unique, customer-friendly layouts with your business goals in mind.

Build. We buckle down, put on the coffee and music, and get it done. Whether it’s a WordPress theme for your corporate blog, simple set of business cards, or a full-blown web application with mobile users in mind, we have the skills to pay the bills. We write clean, understandable code free of obfuscation and with plenty of documentation. (Thus the name.) Print or web, CMYK or PHP, you want alphabet soup, you got it:

  • Identity and branding
  • Technical illustration
  • Photo retouching
  • Document layout
  • Packaging production
  • Forms and data collection via PDF
  • Translation management for multi-language documents
  • Proofreading and editing
  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • PHP
  • MySQL database design and development
  • WordPress theme, plugin, and widget development
  • JavaScript and jQuery, including techniques like JSON and AJAX
  • Compatibility checking and implementation for Internet Explorer 6 through 10
  • Social Media Integration

Test. Hey, don’t tell anyone, but we’re human. We make mistakes on the first go-round. But, our number one rule is make it right. A full testing plan helps us fix the errors and optimize the slow parts. Everything from coordinating beta test programs to making sure it works for that first, critical CEO sign-off can be handled with aplomb.

Launch. Sure, it’s the push of a button, but we have to make sure we do it at the right time. Launching a new site at noon on your busiest shopping day of the year probably isn’t a good idea (just saying). If it means getting up at 1:30 a.m. on a Sunday so it’s ready in Canberra by sundown, consider it done.

Support. Just because we’re live doesn’t mean our work is done. There will be things to do and people to please after the hard work is over. Typos, layout adjustments, additions: They happen. We won’t make a break for it the minute your project launches: We only work with clients we like working with, and we’ll do what it takes to make the changes you need, when you need them.

Lengths and proportions of phases are typical, but may not accurately reflect those required for your project. Ask for an estimate, and we’ll be happy to give you a detailed breakdown of the time and investment required for each phase in your project.
