Goal Setting & Information Gathering
stage is devoted to establishing the Web Site Objectives, and gathering
sufficient information to fully define the project.
Project Proposal and Contract
Project Proposal is then prepared for the clients review. This is
where we outline:
- Web Site
and Navigation scheme
- Site Diagram
and Programming requirements
Administration and Maintenance Tools
other special requirements
Proposal is then reviewed with the client, and modified as necessary to
insure the project is defined as accurately as possible.
Once the client is happy with the proposal, we then start the work.
Developing, Testing, and Deploying
During the development stage, the client
will be fully involved in reviewing pages as they are developed.
We normally start with the graphics and "look
& feel" of the web site. You will review one or more
initial "comps", and these will then be more fully developed,
based on your input.
Navigational scheme is closely related to the overall site graphics, and
so will also be designed during this phase.
you are satisfied with the site appearance and graphics, we then move
on to the next phase.
Development & Site Functionality
The web pages are now produced, and databases to contain your pages are developed..
Once the site is complete, it
is rigorously tested to be sure everything works as intended.
The client is also asked to check the site. Any problems found are corrected, and any content
changes are made.
Typically, Oakstand will host your site at our servers in Seattle, which are monitored 24/7.
We then officially launch your website, and monitor it closely over the next few weeks.
