It is our approach to ensure that all development is designed with our client’s resources in mind. We understand that Internet development needs to be a collaborative process to ensure that your site’s maintenance is easily operated and that web technology is applied to yield the most benefit to you and your site visitors.
We will give you the advantage of working with a full-service technology company (with years of design experience) that will utilize only stable, up-to-date and compatible technology for your site. We also have the ability and experience to make sure that your website can integrate with most legacy business software you currently have in place. Our solutions are scalable, allowing your company to grow your site content and web features in the future.
The first priority in implementing a new web site solution is to assemble a list of content requirements (i.e. pages) that the web site must contain in order to fulfill its various objectives. This list is then transformed into a navigational structure and general site outline. Further consultation will involve adding and subtracting pages from the list and then reorganizing the linking structure until a final web site structure including all navigation paths is confirmed.
The next step is to review functional requirements, recommendations, design guides or brand specifications you need while also having discussions regarding personal tastes and recommendations for the site’s layout. This will also include an initial review of the different initiatives you intend to promote through the site plus an analysis of best business practices of similar sites.
What follows will be a series of exchanges of designs with constant feedback and updating. The end result will be Photoshop files that contain stylings for the core web pages of your site including the home page with site framework and any internal page styles.
Base Installation and Modifications
Includes setting up the development environment, the database, and the base system. It will also include making any required modifications to the base system (changes within existing site administration areas, as oppose to module development). This will often be done in tandem with the graphic integration process.
HTML Template Creation
At this point we will develop the integration page templates for the basic page types the site will utilize and these will then be handed over to developers. We envision the following pages to be included in your site:
LA Dezign will ensure that all features are working correctly and that the site maintains functional and visual integrity across all major platforms.
Modules Integration and Augmentation:
This includes the addition and custom programming of any features that are not currently part of the base installed system.
Launch the site. Celebrate!
