After the completion of Phase 1 - Discovery, we are left with a thorough understanding of the project.  A road map of what is to be done.  We then take this road map and spec out the exact details of what the project will entail, specifically.  Based on the project requirements and budget we begin to marry the technical, aesthetic, and optimization necessities to create a global outline and task assignment.

  • Information Architecture

Phase 3 consists of creating the necessary foundation for the project.  This can vary greatly based on the project requirements and technicalities.  The next step is to compile and submit all known content, begin all DNS acquisitions, and outline messaging.  Ensuring we have either complete control of, or direct access to, items such as the domain name, existing site, content, messaging definitions, etc.  These items will be used later on in the project but we want to eliminate any surprises for a successful site launch or delivery.  The content is then used to solidify the architecture and identify more needs and uses of the site.  Content is either provided by the client, or from our copywriting team.  SEO team will also begin with the optimization document based on content outlined.

Colorado Website Design and Development Foundation Items Include:

  • Server/Hosting Development & URL Setup

Once the architecture and bulk of the content are delivered, then the design gets underway.  The goal is to incorporate all the requirements of the architecture and content, while still designing from the perspective of the user. Visual issues surrounding brand identity, calls to action, marketing goals, layout, user interface, photography, animation, typography, and color palettes are all elements the Web Designer will incorporate while providing the user with a visually inviting site. The design must excite and meet the customer’s needs in order to be successful.

  • Mood designs
  • Client Review and Sign-off
  • Interfacing


Once the visual look has been established, then the site will be built.  We program and build all pages, make navigation active, execute database work, create site tools, site forms, execute content management systems...and whatever else has been agreed upon for the final website.

At this stage we are close to being done, but still have to do a thorough test of all tools, integrations and anything else outlined in the project.  Test. Test. Test!  After we build the absolute best product possible, we try to break it.  Yes, that is what I wrote, we try and find any holes in our solutions.  We also begin to introduce our solutions and administrative features to the client.
