In an effort to facilitate a smooth operation, Flying Robot has broken
the basic web site development process out into six phases:
One | Goals
A complete run-down of the scope of work. Identifying the project's
challenges and opportunities. Materials needed, target audience, costs
involved, and project timelines are all part of successfully fulfilling
Two | Foundation
After examining what needs to be done in terms of content we generate a
comprehensive site map that demonstrates how users will navigate from
page to page and where information will reside. The site map is a key
element in laying down the ground work for an intuitive, easy-to-use
Three | Design
Next we establish the creative direction the website will take. Creation
of an overall site theme - mock-ups of the site layout and design.
Headers, footers, menu bars, as well as color scheme and font usage are
hammered out. After the client has approved of a final design we break
it out into HTML and continue onto
Four | Content
Content is now plugged into the site theme. Graphics are optimized, any
custom coding is begun, and the site really begins to take form.
Five | Testing
Where we add the final shine. The site is tested across a variety of
browsers and screen resolutions. All coding is completed. Content and
any special features are reviewed by the client for final approval.
Six | Lift Off
The site goes live. From here we offer a variety of methods to assist
you with keeping your site current and in perfect working order.
