Our discovery process is where we learn about you, your products, your brand, your customers, your goals and needs. This process typically includes specification gathering and wireframing. Wireframes are like a digital whiteboard drawing, we create one for each of the key templates on your site. As part of that, we'll talk with you about the needs and goals of your project and sort out all the details of flow, organization and function with you. The result of this is a "blueprint" for the site that we'll take into the next stage.
The next stage is the design phase, this is where we work with you to create a visual design which aligns with your brand, and creates the visual "look" of your site. We favor a clean, modern, world-class aesthetic, which also meets the goals and needs outlined in the discovery stage. You can see an example of our design approach here on our website by looking through our portfolio.
One you have reviewed and approved all designs, the next stage is development. This is where we take all the work from the previous stages and turn it into a fully functioning Shopify store. The end result of this phase is a complete store, built on Shopify, that looks and behaves as we've designed it.
Testing, migration and launch
The final stage is testing, migration and launch. In this phase we'll work with you to carry out a migration plan from your old shop (if applicable), which includes SEO considerations, and making sure we retain the existing traffic to your current site. We'll have you you load the shop up with all your products and content and fully "hydrate" the design and functionality. We'll work with you to test it and ensure that it accomplished all your original goals, both functional and aesthetic, that we set out when we started. Then we help you launch your site out to the world.
Once this work is complete, we guarantee our work to be free from defects (bugs) without a time limit. If we built it, and it doesn't work right, we'll fix it without any additional cost.
We welcome the chance to help provide new features and functionality after launch. This work is typically billed hourly at $150/hr.
