We've been working with the web since it was born – we rode the boom, dodged the bust and watched it bloom again in earnest. We've learned over the years. We've honed a process that yields inspired and measurable results, every time.
To kick things off, we have a long sit-down with you and your team. We guide you through a dialogue that will help us understand your mission and reveal the needs of your audience. What we learn in this step informs all of the decisions that follow.
Architecture + Strategy
We plot a strategy for your information architecture, navigation methods, and user experience design. We brainstorm ways to leverage your content with technology to motivate and engage your patrons. The resultant documents serve as a roadmap to keep the project on point throughout production.
Informed by the strategy developed in Phase 2, we create a visual look and feel for your site. We brainstorm the most compelling methods to blend creativity, technology, usability and functionality. Designers collaborate with strategists to ensure the visual systems are consistent with your mission. The end result is a design that's current, clear and compelling.
Strategy, creativity and code coalesce. We realize your visual design in HTML to pixel perfect precision. Programmers and designers work together to build intuitive and engaging interaction design tailored to your audience. We develop your open-source CMS, integrate social media APIs and build customized plug-ins so your team can populate content. We review progress with you throughout this phase, so you can follow your vision as it whirs into to life.
Launch and Learn
We test across platforms and browsers, confirm that your site conforms to best practices, and go live. Over the next weeks, we refine functionality, study analytics and performance against established metrics. Our ongoing maintenance and support program keeps your site online, on point, and current.

Thank you to our friends at Hopewell Therapeutic Farm for these super-adorable stress-relief animal-squeezies. Shortly after we received them, the studio devolved into silliness and laughter. Unfortunately though, your new website launch will now be exactly 22 minutes behind schedule.
