Website design workflow


A website project is not only a work of art, it's a carefully crafted product customized for the exact purposes of the website owner. For that reason, we have to thoroughly collect user stories and define actions and goals. From ideas to wireframes, from designs and actual code, every step of the website design process requires the utmost attention to details and high level of cooperation of both the creative team and the project owner.

At any point during the web design process, new issues and requirements may emerge, it's important that we can quickly react to these changes and adjust the project's scope if necessary. We find most projects to have at least one or two changes that divert from the original scope and our work process has been adjusted to be both predictable and adaptive to changes.
define project's scope

discuss project´s requirements
  • What is the purpose of the project?
