One of the first questions we get from our clients is “What does your process look like?”. Naturally it’s your right to know what to expect during our web design process before signing the contract. So, we created this brief document. Depending on your needs, the steps may change. For instance, if we’re building a website based on a theme, the development and the design phases usually go hand in hand. Or you may choose not to get any optimization service. We decide about the rest of the process at the planning stage. But still, this document will give you a general idea about our web design process and what to expect.
This step is crucial for a smooth production process but usually overlooked by inexperienced designers.

A keyword used in the copy may change the minds of your visitors and make them click your call-to-actions. Or the images selected may tell great stories individually but they may not create a harmony when they’re put next to one another. In this step, we make sure the delivery of the message is perfect.
- Website copy edit
- Media (image/video) selections and edits
In this step of our web design process, we’ll implement the design concepts and make the website ready for optimizations phase. The communication may be limited in this part since some of our developers prefer to work in their caves and not to be disturbed.
