Zen Ideas Web Design Process

Understanding Client Issues and Needs

Each organization has its own objectives, so we take the time to learn about yours. Understanding where you’re at and figuring out where you want to go allows us to pinpoint the web strategy solutions that will take you there.

01. Checklist

First we make sure that we have everything we need to begin the project. This includes your domain and hosting details if necessary as well as your project worksheet and all the website requirements.

02. Sitemap

Next we organize all the information for the website into a hierarchical and meaningful structure to make it easy for users to find what they need and easy for website owners to publish their story.

03. Prototype

Then we produce a prototype of “proof of concept” to see how the website might work in the browser and to see how user might interact with it. Once this is finalized then we design an interface for the website.

04. Coding

The next phase is where we spin up our magic wizard tools and turn your beautiful prototype and interface into a fully working website. It is all very technical here so we won’t bore you with the details, needless to say we spend lots of time indoors during this process.

05. Launch

Finally we put your new website through our pre-flight check and then launch it into cyber space so that the rest of the world can visit it on computers, tablets and smartphones. Yay!

06. Support and Maintenance

WordPress allows you to update your website anytime, from anywhere. We provide WordPress training so that you can maintain your website in-house, the way you want, as needed. We also maintain a partnership with you by providing support assistance to the hosted environment and the website.

“He was easy to communicate with as he always understood our needs, and he was very strategic about developing appropriate framework and materials for our website. As a result, our project was well kept on track and on budget despite the tight time frame. I look forward to collaborating with him again in the near future, and I will not hesitate to recommend his company, ZEN IDEAS, to anyone looking for professional and creative web design services.”
