Design & Development Process
We have found that designing in code allows us to quickly build structure, functionality, and responsiveness into the design from the very beginning. Sketches and quick static mock ups still have their uses, but seeing a site come together in a web browser is by far the most effective way to review designs for modern websites. While we are busy designing, the team is also hard at work developing the functional specs and data model, as well as reviewing and prepping any third party tools the project may need. The whole process is an iterative cycle that allows us to work very quickly and adapt to inevitable changes that arise as the project comes together.
Our design and development process often extends beyond our office. Working well with other designers, agencies, and third party developers is a must in today's web environment and we always strive to make the process as seamless as possible.
