Meet the boys and girls

9 Steps of Magic
Building a fantastic website doesn't happen by mistake.
Initial meeting to discuss requirements of your project.
The strategy phase determines the goals & objectives of the new website. It establishes such things as the key demographics and research on competition.
After the strategy is complete you will receive an analysis of your new website, it's goals and a review of any competitors websites.
This information is key to the development of a successful website.
Eyedea will create a wireframe of the key areas of the website showing how to achieve the goals set out in the strategy. This will show the position of the elements on the pages.
Wireframes are the blueprints for the website design. They highlight position and importance of elements to be designed.
This step is an internal step to assist us in designing your website.
Content comes in 2 parts, we need the literal content for your website which you are welcome to provide to us, or at a fee we can get a professional copywriter involved.
The second part of content is the actual messages that you want to portray, this can be achieved in both words and design.
Initial Design concepts will be submitted.
Based on the agreed outcomes in the strategy, wireframe, and content phases; our designers will produce a high quality, awesome website interface.
Design approval will be submitted before proceeding to the development phase.
The development of the website based on the quote and the approved designs.
Eyedea will submit a (beta) test version of the website for testing and client submission and training purposes.
The timeline will completely depend on the size and complexity of your project.
07 QA & Training
Before any website goes live it has to pass our stringent QA (Quality Assurance) program – this process ensures your website is rigorously tested prior to launch.
All websites need a signed 'project finalisation agreement' before going live.
08 Site Live & Aftercare
Once the site has been completed and passed our quality assurance program, the site will be deployed to a live server.
Once the site is live you will have a dedicated aftercare specialist that you can contact directly if you have any questions.
The project is complete.
