Here is an overview of the main stages that Twisted
Pixel follows during the development of a typical web
Initial Meeting(s) with Client
Discuss your purpose, goals, visions. Review content,
including available graphic material, corporate literature,
etc. Brainstorming. Results in us getting a general
concept and direction of the site and you getting a
cost estimate and preliminary site structure.
Since we are often geographically separated from many
of our clients, sometimes this step is performed over
the phone, email, TeamViewer, and sometimes courier. Prior to this
"meeting" it is helpful if you surf the web
to get ideas you may like, and also what you don't like.
Develop mockups of home page and 2nd level pages. Review
design with client, recycle and fine tune until agreement
on look and navigation The mockups are done primarily
with graphics, with a minimum amount of HTML coding
and little or no interactivity. If the site content
is not completely written yet, homepage mockup may come
a bit later.
Once the basic design and creative direction is agreed
upon, an interactive working prototype is developed.
Home page and other key pages are developed using graphics,
HTML and programming. The prototype is placed on a test
server for client review, revisions, and approval.
This includes completion of the remaining pages, finalizing
and testing of the code. Links are validated on the
server by a web robot. Final approval of the site by
Site is promoted to the production server and a final
review is performed.
Search Engine Optimzation (SEO)
Actually, SEO starts very early in the developement process during content creation and continues through the developement cycle.
No matter how hard you try, there will likely be minor
content changes to make soon after the site launches.
Modification such as minor wording changes, typo corrections
and the like will be done at no charge for up to 1 month
from production launch. More substantial changes will
be done on a time and materials basis or by estimate.
Successful web sites don't stop at implementation. It
is important to keep the content current and fresh.
We can maintain your site at reasonable rates.
