The Process

Whenever we are tasked with a web redesign, our first step is to complete a web audit of the companies existing site identifying strengths and weaknesses. We sit down and discuss the company’s goals and objectives for the new site. We develop a well planned strategy and consult with our clients through each phase of development. Below is a collection of old and new site comparisons with a brief summary of what was done.
