Etherweb is a premier class full service creative and digital agency that specializes in website development. We have a proven project process that keeps you informed and aware of your project’s status at all times.
1. Planning and Quotation
The first step we take is to work together with you to produce a Sitemap.
A Sitemap is a document of the hierarchy and relative page structure of all the pages in your website.
This allows us to realise your specific requirements for every page, thus providing you with an acurate quote.
Once you have accepted our quote, we will proceed into phase two.
2. Layout and Wireframes
The second step is to create wireframes. The wireframes are a low detail visual outline of the design and functionality of your website.
The position of different content and control items are shown for each page. Each unique page in your site will receive its own wireframe.
Any layout changes to major elements, such as moving or changing the orientation of a menu, is done at this point in time.
3. Front End Development
Design, Polishing and Cutting
After you have confirmed you are happy with the wireframes we can begin the final design containing the finer details of your website.
A full detail custom design using the structure and layout defined in the wireframes is created.
Cutting a website is the process of converting the static design images, produced in phase two, into website code that your browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari) will understand.
We use the latest technologies such as HTML 5 and CSS 3 where applicable. Our philosophy is to strike a balance between aesthetics, performance, and backwards-compatibility.
4. Back End Development
The CMS (Content Management System) that forms the administrative backend of your website will be customized to serve your requirements.
Your website will be fully functioning and available online at an address on our development servers. As your project nears completion we will give you access.
It is now that your website will receive final deployment content. The initial round of content will be inserted by us.
We encourage all our clients to learn how to operate the CMS control panel that allows any of the content that we have integrated to be updated and changed.
The beauty of this system is that it allows you to at any time, to keep your website instantaneously updated with no cost.
Our project process depends on your requirements and may vary from project to project.
