Web Design & Development
We make websites !
Having a website is only part of the battle. It needs to be professional. It needs to be attractive. But most importantly, it needs to work. Our professional team provides web design and development services to businesses of all sizes.
Sumy Designs focuses on not only providing beautiful design, but on layouts that give your clients the information they're looking for - the oh-so-important first impression of your organization or business, the services you provide, or about the book you just published.
STRATEGY DRIVEN DESIGN
We create websites that look great, but with a strategy in place to help convert more website visitors into customers and set you up for success.
We create WordPress websites using the latest techniques, trends, and tools. When we're finished, you can manage your content with ease.
A large portion of your customers will be accessing your website from their phone. Our web designs are created to look great on many types of devices.
Our Web Design & Development Process
When it comes to web design and development, it's pretty important to work with a company that knows how to get things done. We have a systematic process that allows us to work with you at your pace, but also creates an atmosphere that empowers you to participate in the process. We're working together on this project. It's a collaboration, and not a dictatorship. Please read our web design and development process below to learn more about the steps involved in bringing your website to fruition.
Phase One: Discovery
We want to know all about you! Part of our on-boarding process involves completing a discovery questionnaire, asking a ton of questions about your business or organization, telling us about sites you love, sites you had and more. Then we'll schedule a kick off call so we can talk over everything you've submit.
Phase Two: Design
This is where the fun begins! Using the information you provided during our discovery and on-boarding process, Susan will work to create a custom design just for you. You'll get a style guide of color, typography and device responsiveness provided along with a full-page initial concept of the home page for your review and input. This is a collaboration, so we want to hear what you think and have your feedback and input during the entire process.
Phase Three: Development
Once you've signed off on your design, it's time to build! We'll take your completed concept and turn it into a working website. Once completed, we'll provide you with a private URL for previewing and testing your new site. This gives you the opportunity to test it on all your devices, check that all the links and buttons work, and make sure you like the images and content layout.
Phase Four: Content
A website isn't complete until every page has content. We hope that you've been working hard during phases 1-3 to have content ready for phase 4. Your customers have come to the website for a reason, so you want to be sure you've answered all their questions! Content is crucial to every website.
We'll take your content and lay it out on each page so that it looks great and is easy to read.
Phase Five: Launch!
Hooray, it's time for launch! That means you've tested, approved, and are ready to make your site live to the world. We'll do all the technical work in this process - getting it loaded onto your server, making it live, as well as any debugging necessary. (We'll make sure Google knows where it is too.)
Phase Six: Training and Support
Your website is launched, but we're just beginning! We'll schedule a training call so we can walk you through how to manage your website as well as answer all your questions. We'll discuss support options with you at this time too. Your site will need regular care to thrive.
This is our process for a basic site design and development. If you've signed on for any of our other services, such as logo design, SEO, or copywriting, these will be implemented during different phases based on your needs.
"Amy and Susan are a dream team to work with. They're creative, professional, responsive, and technically savvy. I'm thrilled with my new site! I would highly recommend Sumy Designs to colleagues and companies looking for WordPress website experts."
