Phase 1

Phase 1

Website Strategy

Who are your users, and how to reach them? We start every engagement by building a solid foundation of research to support your project’s success.

First things first. We’ll develop a thorough knowledge of your offerings, your technical needs, and the audiences you want to reach, so that we can develop your website or app to deliver the functionality you need with a strategy that hits the mark.

  • Customer/user profiles

  • Functional & technical specs
  • Information architecture and content strategy
Phase 2

Phase 2

Website Design

What do you need your users to do? And what do they need, in turn, from you? There’s an opportunity for excellence on the bridge to that gap.

A successful digital strategy is all about user experience (UX). Based on the research we’ve performed in Phase 1, we’ll develop content and design that work in tandem to meet your goals, serving your users’ needs in a way that’s effortless, attractive, and functional.
