Client provides all content within 10 days of project start. When content is received the project manager meets with client to discuss navigation, design, and site message. If content is not received in 10 days the project is set aside and the cost of the project is increased by 10% for every two days that content is not received.
Based on the content received by the client and the results of the interview, the project scope is defined. Next the content that has been received is outlined, the project flow is mapped out, and the project brief is developed. The development plan is prepared and approved by the client.
Now that the content has been outlined and a plan developed, the client and project manager will discuss the elements of design including the template, typography, short codes, and media. Based on discussion the client is provided a prototype and adjustments are made.
At this point in the project, all the components and decisions have been made. All assets have been received and the plan is executed. This stage of the project goes very quickly. Adjustments are made based on client feedback.
The site is moved to it’s final location and it is “open for business”. The project is monitored closely for the first thirty days and any defects are quickly corrected.
