The Process

How do we get the work done?  We consult with you to define the scope of work, giving recommendations within the project’s time, budget, and technical constraints.  After proposal acceptance, we then conceptualize and draft sketches or digital proofs of original ideas. We then create for client approval a Photoshop layout showing graphics, navigation, and typography. After approval, the layout is converted to HTML and CSS templates for use down-line in the development phase of the project.

If a CMS framework is used, then one of two options are available, depending on the budget.  Either customization of an existing site template or theme is agreed upon and implemented, or a new template or theme is developed from scratch. Additional CMS extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons are installed, configured and tested as required.
