A process formed over a five year period. The process has been through many changes and tweaks over that time and now shows great results for both my clients and myself. The process is very deep, but I can certainly share a flavour of that process. Join me on a journey.
The very first initial meeting. Normally consisting of around an hour, totally free of charge to any new client I meet. How can this help you?
Now we've got to know each other better we feel a little more comfortable, that first meeting is always quite daunting. Now lets be a little more project focused.
Defining a project scope is the most essential step in the project, take my word for it. Too many times in my career I have seen projects scopes creep, which then leads to missed deadlines, budget inflation and lots of frustration again for both parties. This is an intense step but will help in eliminating future issues in designing and developing your website.
Project scope finalised? Let's get down to business. The design phase will allow me to give you your first look at my approach to your project. This will go in hand with the functional spec and previous decisions and discussion will play a big part in this section.
Bringing the website together. Designs have been completed and signed off by the client. We now take out intense functional specification and pull the whole site together as a whole
Whether the site is small or large, we always need a testing process. Using my check lists we can hand these out to your users to carry out suitable testing before your website goes live. You, the client, and I would also carry out our own testing.
With all testing being successful it's time to hand over to the client. This is a specific process and there are guidelines on how this is done.
What went wrong? What went right? How can we manage and improve the website in the future. A chance for feedback from both parties and look forward to the future.
