Process

Clear Communication

We pride ourselves in providing exceptional communication and organization throughout our process. No last minute surprises, no disappearing for weeks at a time, and no bullshitting.

Flexible to Changing Needs

In the startup world, things change every minute. We’ll lay out clear goals and benchmarks at the beginning of our project, but when requirements change, we’ll be ready to roll with the punches and keep on trucking.

Our Principles

Continuous Delivery

Nothing sets you up for disappointment more than a black box of design and development that doesn’t open until the final delivery date. You’ll be involved with the project from day one and able to continuously gauge progress through daily updates, prototypes, and deployments.

Sustainability for the Future

We’re here to help take your company to the next level. From team management and communication tools, to design and development practices, to the comps and code that we produce, we’ll make sure every aspect of what we do for you can be reused and scaled even after we’re long gone.

Our Process

1

Discovery

We’ll get to know each other. What are your goals? What challenges have you faced? How are you measuring success? Based on what we learn on this call, we’ll take a deep dive into your space looking at competition, current market conditions, and evaluating your objectives.

2

Proposal

With a clear understanding of your project and objectives, we’ll put together a comprehensive proposal that breaks down project details, phases, timeline, and cost estimates. We’ll use this proposal as a starting place to nail down our project scope and rework it until we’re 100% on the same page.

3

Iterative Design

We employ an immersive, iterative design process that works in successive rounds – first, we’ll work with you to wireframe the entire project, focusing on user experience and flow. Next, we’ll move to visual design where we will create clickable prototypes at the end of each day of design, so you can evaluate the project as a whole. We’ll keep iterating until we’ve covered every detail.

4

Agile Development

With detailed design composites locked down, we’ll move into web development. Our development process follows Agile principles and focuses on clear communication, manageable units of work, and continuous working deliveries. We’ll work with your tech team and current technology stack to integrate the new designs exactly the way you saw them in the design phase.

5

Continued Support

After development is complete, we’ll stay on with your project for as long as you need to keep learning and iterating along with your team.

Reasons Why You'll
Love Working With Us

1. We keep problems off your plate. Unanticipated development complication? Having your designer and your frontend developer in the same room drastically shortens the feedback loop. Rather than starting a game of telephone from developer > you > designer >  you > developer – Will just leans over and asks Alyssa.

2. We’ve got connections. Need an iOS developer? Copywriter? Logo designer? We can recommend good, solid people, most of whom we’ve worked with before.

3. Our estimates are dead on. The last estimate we did, for a $40,000 project, came in on time and underbudget (within 1% of our estimate!)

4. We aren’t antisocial. As much as we love this industry, we know how odd contractors can be. Rest assured that we are mostly normal.

5. We only work with 2-4 clients at a time, to ensure that we have plenty of time to focus.

6. We bill by the day, devoting our entire workdays to single projects. This lets us work super fast, just like you need us to.

7. We’re obsessive. Think nobody can love your product as much as you do? Think again.

8. We’re good at words. We know that you can’t afford a copywriter. That’s ok, we’ll make sure you aren’t putting your foot in your mouth.

9. We’re realistic. We won’t green light a project that doesn’t make sense for your bottom line and current trajectory.

10. We’ll send you photos of our adorable Bernese Mountain Dog, Hilde. It’s impossible to be stressed when you’re looking at that smiling face.
