Discovery Design Goals
Discovery UI Goals
Understand informational and functional needs of target audience(s) and define how they will interact with the website.
The end result of discovery is to develop the Creative Strategy and Technical Requirements Document which is the blueprint for the website design and the implementation strategy, leveraging the comprehensive social networking, online marketing and programming features of Contensive CMS to automate information sharing, and reduce administrative burden. These documents include a detailed project plan outlining tasks, needed resources and critical paths for site launch.
During the association web design phase we utilize the creative brief developed in Discovery to guide the direction of your organizations online opportunity. We work with your staff to review and conduct an analysis of your source content, such as; provided presentations, materials, surveys, recommended websites, case studies, and testimonials.
After the wire-frames are approved we move into the actual design/art stage. We provide image research, iconographic options for navigational aids, fonts, stylization and color palette that works within your brand standards including:
Website Design & Brand Integration
During this phase our programming engineers build out all functionality based on TRD and wire-frames. They set up the back-office database and develop any synchronization strategies to legacy databases (if needed). Working with the design team the engineers develop all of the customized add-ons, and install any standard add-ons that will be necessary to meet the requirements in the Technical Requirement Document to deliver the most powerful and flexible CMS system for associations and non-profits.
Deployment occurs when the project has QA, Project manager, Development, and customer acceptance. The Developer then publishes any remaining changes to the production server. We work with you to ensure your DNS is set up correctly, schedule the switch then test again to make sure everything works the way you expect it to work.
