Those who fail to plan,
only plan to fail.
It’s easy to get lost in undertaking any project and the many steps along the way. That’s why from day one, it is critical to have a plan and to develop a roadmap. The 6 phase process is used and repeated because it works.
Step 1 : Discovery
Every business or project starts with a spark. Spark of energy. Spark of passion. Spark of creativity. However, many of these great ideas are often under planned because many people don’t realize everything about bringing that idea to life. Lay the proper groundwork, gather requirements, define the scope, and dive into information architecture.
Step 2 : Planning
Your new brand and website begin with a thorough, up-front process of discovery. We develop a series of deliverables that allows us to work efficiently through the duration of the production. Your project’s success depends on a solid foundation, this work is crucial.
Step 3 : Design
A brand and website are the heart and soul of every organization. To create results that are not only professional but effective goes beyond just creativity. We take the time to dig deep into the sector of the project and gather as much knowledge as possible. This process is how we create educated and informed concepts that are refined and truly unique.
Step 4 : Build
Prototyping is the design verification phase of Product Development — used to demonstrate or prove aspects of a design. Prototyping takes the design from the researched mock-up into a built product that users can use and walkthrough.
Step 5 : Go LIve
The finished product is tested, reviewed, and you’re ready to launch, but once the site is launched, the project isn’t over — you should be prepared to address feedback from users adapting to the project. Expect to make some immediate changes to the site (such as fixing broken links, editing copy and etc.) Change is inevitable because web is ongoing.
Step 6 : Updates and Maintenance
Over time things change. Hours, information, team members and many others can result in areas that need to be updated on your brand assets and website. However, as a business ourselves we know not every business owner has the time to wear the extra hat and update thing themselves. Mr. D Studios, LLC process is designed to pick up the extra slack.
