Phase I: The Discovery
This is where 561Media will gather information, specifics and things of consideration for your website. Upon contraction our clients are asked to fill in a brief discovery form which allows our designers to have a firm understanding of your branding, functionality and aesthetic ambitions as well as their target market and business model.
Phase II: The Blueprint
The second phase directly subsequent to the Discovery phase is the blueprint. Using the information garnered through the discovery, you and our team can translate the discovery into a plan for your website. Here is where the specific structure of your website is developed. This includes a sitemap, which is a hierarchical topical table of contents for your website.
Phase III: The Prototype
Now that our team have everything we need, we will be begin the design phase of your website. Using the information from phase I and the structure from phase II, our designers will design a “homepage” mockup for you. This is the visual look and feel of your site. The visual aesthetic of your site will be dependent on all aforementioned phases as well as your logo colors and branding.
Phase IV: The Development
In the development stage our development team turns the approved prototype into a working, active website property. Using the thematic and graphical concepts from phase III, our team creates the functional website.
Phase V: The Launch
After the developmental stage, you will be able to beta test your site on the developmental server. The testing may include browser compatibility, form efficiency, programming, or script accuracy. Once you are content and have tested the website functionality it is time for final approval and launch.
