  • FIRST MEETING: OUR CLIENTS GET TO KNOW US AND OUR SERVICES IN A JOINT APPOINTMENT AND INFORM US ABOUT THEIR PROJECT IN DETAIL
  • REQUIREMENT ANALYSIS: PREPARING OUR OFFER WE DEFINE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PROJECT AND ANALYSE THE CURRENT STATUS
  • OFFER: BASED ON THE FIRST MEETING AND THE REQUIREMENT ANALYSIS WE CREATE AN INDIVIDUAL OFFER
  • BRIEFING: TOGETHER WITH OUR CLIENT AND ON BASIS OF THE TARGET GROUP’S NEEDS/CONDITIONS AS WELL AS THE CORPORATE GOAL WE WORK OUT AN EXTENSIVE PROJECT BRIEFING. THIS WILL BE USED AS AN ORIENTATION FOR OUR CLIENTS AND US DURING THE PROCESS
  • PROJECT MANAGEMENT: HERE WE COORDINATE THE CONTENT-PROCESSING, DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT. SIMULTANEOUSLY WE ENSURE THAT THE PROJECT DOESNT EXCEED THE FINANCIAL AND TIME FRAMES AND OUR CLIENT’S REQUESTS ARE STILL MEET ACCORDINGLY
  • CONCEPTION: OUR DESIGN TEAM ELABORATES THE ALIGNMENT AND STRUCTURE OF THE WEBSITE, INCLUDING THE EXAMINATION OF ALREADY AVAILABLE TEXT AND PHOTO MATERIALS
  • WIREFRAMING: ON BASIS OF THE CONCEPTION WE CREATE A SKETCH OF AN EXAMPLE WEBSITE TO COMPARE THE CONTENT WITH OUR CLIENT
  • DESIGN: WE START WITH DESIGNING ALL REQUIRED ELEMENTS. THE MOBIL OPTIMIZATION FOR SMARTPHONES AND TABLETS IS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. THIS STEP ALSO INCLUDES CREATING ILLUSTRATIONS, SELECTING FONT-TYPES AND COLORS, AND PREPARING ANIMATIONS
  • BLUEPRINT: WE PRESENT TO OUR CLIENTS THE FIRST RESULTS OF THE DESIGNING-PHASE. THIS IS ONLY A BLUEPRINT AND DOESNT CONTAIN THE FUNCTIONALITES.
  • CORRECTION: HERE WE ADJUST THE BLUEPRINT ACCORDING TO THE IDEAS OF OUR CLIENT.
  • DESIGN RELEASE: AS SOON AS OUR CLIENT APPROVES THE DESIGN CONCEPT, WE INITIATE THE DEVELOPMENT PHASE
  • TEXTS: THE EXAMINATION OF AVAILABLE TEXT AND IMAGE MATERIAL HAS ALREADY TAKEN PLACE. NOW MISSING TEXTS HAVE TO BE ADDED AND INCORRECT TEXTS NEED TO BE FIXED. WE GLADLY ADVISE A TEXTER FROM OUR NETWORK. COMMUNICATION IS OUR MAIN TASK – WHAT TEXTS ARE MISSING, WHAT CONTENT IS SUITABLE, ETC
  • IMAGES: EVERY WEBSITE LIVES ON ITS VISUAL LANGUAGE. REQUIRED IMAGES WILL BE CREATED, EDITED OR BOUGHT ON LOW BUDGET
  • CMS – WE INSTALL AND CONFIGURATE A FITTING CONTENT-MANAGEMENT-SYSTEM FOLLOWED BY ADDING TEXTS AND IMAGE MATERIAL
    1. SET UP THE CMS
    2. THEME INSTALLATION AND CONFIGURATION
    3. SET UP THE MENUE AND SITE STRUCTURE
    4. ARRANGE THE CONTENT (TEXTS, IMAGES, ILLUSTATIONS, ANIMATIONS)
    5. IMPLEMENT THE DESIGN AND INDIVIDUALIZE THE THEME (INCLUDING CSS)
    6. PLUG-IN INSTALLATION AND SET-UP
  • PROGRAMMING – IN MOST CASES OUR IDEAS AND OUR CLIENTS’S IDEAS REGARDING DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITY CAN NOT BE FULLY IMPLEMENTED BY THE THEME AND PLUG-INS. THEREFORE WE CONDUCT A FINE-TUNING USING HTML5, CSS, JAVASCRIPT AND PHP
    1. THEME ADJUSTMENTS
    2. PLUG-IN ADJUSTMENTS
  • OPTIMIZATION – WE OPTIMIZE THE WEBSITE FOR THE NEWEST VERSIONS OF THE COMMON WEBBROWSERS IN ASPECTS OF SPEED AND SEO. FURTHERMORE WE FIX DISPLAY ERRORS AND REVISE THE MOBILE OPTIMIZATION.
    1. FIX DISPLAY ERRORS ON MOBILE DEVICES
    2. PLUG-IN INSTALLATION AND SET-UP
    3. TECHNICAL SEO (URL OPTIMIZATION, LINK STRUCTURES, META DATA, CRAWLING, LOADING TIME AND MORE)
    4. CHECK-UP AND BUG FIXING ON FOLLOWING WEBBROWSERS: CHROME, SAFARI, FIREFOX, EDGE
  • TESTING AND DEBUGGING – WE TEST THE DEVELOPED WEBSITE ON DIFFERENT DEVICES WITH DIFFERENT OPERATING SYSTEMS AND ON DIFFERENT WEBBROWSERS. THIS STEP IS VERY SIMILAR TO THE OPTIMIZATION STEP. THE FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE IS – THE WEBSITE IS TESTED BY A LARGER NUMBER OF USERS (OPTIMALLY FIRST CUSTOMERS)
    1. SUPERVISED TESTS BY USERS (10-20) FOLLOWED BY REPORTS THROUGH A TRELLO BOARD
    2. FIXING OUTCOMING DISPLAY AND FUNCTION ERRORS
    3. SECURITY TESTING FOLLOWED BY OPTIMIZATION (IF NECESSARY)
    4. PERFORMANCE TESTS (SPEED AND SEO) FOLLOWED BY OPTIMIZATION (IF NECESSARY)
  • APPROVAL: THE CLIENT SCREENS THE FINISHED WEBSITE AND GIVES APPROVAL FOR THE LIVE-RELEASE
  • LIVE-RELEASE: THE NEW WEBSITE GOES LIVE UNDER THE DESIRED DOMAIN
  • TRAINING (ADD-ON): IF REQUIRED WE TRAIN OUR CLIENTS IN USING THE CMS. CURRENTLY ITS DIVIDED IN A VIDEO CONFERENCE AND A FOLLOWING QUESTIONING. IN THE FIRST MONTH THE CLARIFICATION OF UPCOMING QUESTIONS IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE.

TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES IN USE

A good website consists of creative design and clever programming. From the beginning on designers and developers are required to work together closely to ensure an efficient project process. Hereinafter we present in more detail the most important of our numerous softwaretools we use during the process:

ADOBE CREATIVE CLOUD
(PHOTOSHOP, INDESIGN, ILLUSTRATOR)

Every person who works in design, media, marketing or photography has probably already worked with one or more of the adobe creative suite softwares. Apps like photoshop, indesign and illustrator are the standards for creatives.

Creative Cloud (CC) is adobes way to give access to a wide range of its software as a service. We primary use these programms for Branding and Product Design Processes to create logos or product designs for instance.

However – they are also frequently used in web design processes when individual graphics or animations need to be created.

Invision Studio

Invision Studio is a Layout-Engine we use for rough wireframes as well as detailed layout drafts for bigger web design projects. It benefits our team cooperation by keeping us networked consistently and up to date.

Invision

After developing the layout with invision studios we often use invision. Invision is a design-development platform with integrated tools and functions which enables teams and individuals to create high-fidelity web and mobile prototypes, work together in realtime and manage their projects with ease. Therefore it supports us in bringing our layout-designs into life and develop wireframes and interactive prototypes out of them. It also makes the transition to programming as simple as possible.

Wordpress

WordPress started as a simple blogging platform and since then it has evolved to be a content-management-system and a framework for developing applications. We frequently use it to build websites and online shops as a base for development work.

It accelerates the process and enables our clients a simple content maintenance. Nowadays about 37% of all websites online are runned by wordpress, which makes it the biggest cms worldwide. This on the other hand guarantees the actuality and durability of the system.
