Our Process

Our homegrown “Why” before “What” process helps us build your perfect project. Learn  more below.

Step 1: Kick-Off

Make sure you check out our work, learn about our team, and see why OneEighty is the best fit for your next project.

  1. Then, schedule a call with us so we can talk about your project.
  2. Next, use our price quote request form to get the ball rolling.
  3. We’ll email you within 48 hours and give you a price estimate.
  4. Finally, Once you give us the thumbs up, we’ll send you a project proposal for electronic signature. 

Step 2: Discovery

Once you sign your proposal, we’ll send you an invoice for your initial deposit. After that is paid, your project begins.

In this phase…

  1. You will receive our Creative Brief. It’s a design brainstorming document that helps us get a good direction on the design of the project.
  2. After you fill this out, we’ll meet with you for your Project Kickoff meeting. Then we begin to assemble our team and get to work.
  3. We’ll also send you links for you to begin working on your site’s content.
  4. Meanwhile, we’ll be doing SEO research, learning about your competitors, and thinking through your site’s menu structure.

Step 3: Design

In this phase of the process, we bring together colors, fonts, design ideas, images to layout out our initial “mockup”.

In this phase…

  1. We’ll create a mockup of the homepage design. Note: This is not a finalized design, but rather a layout of what your site could look like.
  2. We often use stock photography and place holder text as “filler” until we have the final site photography and copy. Depending on the size of your project
  3. We may create up to a total of 3 different mockups for specific pages that will showcase the overall design.
  4. After an internal review by our team, we’ll present these mockups to you for your feedback.

Step 4: Develop

After final design approval from you, our developers get to work doing the heavy lifting. We take the designs and begin the website creation process on our development servers.

In this phase…

  1. We’ll begin by creating your site’s homepage. It’s the most important page on your website and sets the “tone” for the rest of the site.
  2. Then, we’ll craft the remaining required pages until the site is complete.
  3. This site build is then followed up by testing and internal review.
  4. Finally we send you a live preview link for your feedback and approval.

Step 5: Launch

The result of all the hard-work of our design and development teams has brought us to this moment where your site gets to live in the real world.

In this phase…

  1. We’ll coordinate “launch day” with you to make sure all your followers and the world can see your new beautiful website. 
  2. Then, we start on our extensive pre-launch checklist. Counting down until launch day.
  3. LAUNCH! Your new website goes live on the day of your choosing.
  4. Lastly, we’ll work through our post-launch checklist and setup user training for you and your team.
