our process with web design and development
Did you know you have exactly 3 seconds to impress a visitor when they come to your website? Does your site impress your target client or customer? Does it invoke confidence and a clear understanding of what you provide? Is your site even ranking on the first page of Google?
Establishing a high profile web presence is not only vital for companies to attract new business, but it’s an opportunity for you to stand out in a crowd and differentiate yourself from your competition.
How do we help you do that? Take a look at our process below.
Stage #1: Discovery
Every project is unique, as is every proposal. We don’t have set prices for web site design (a question we are frequently asked). So we start with a discovery phase so that we can be sure we understand your business, your competition, and your needs.
During this phase, we’ll meet with you to discuss project details (timeline, budget, etc..), audit your current website (if you have one), define the features and functionality that you need your new website to have, identify your likes and dislikes when it comes to design, and define your digital marketing goals for the site.
Research + Proposal
From there we’ll do some additional research and planning, define your sitemap (the basic structure of your website), and we’ll tailor a custom web proposal that fits your budget and your timeline. If you accept, we’ll move on to Stage #2!
Stage #2: Wireframes
In Stage 2, we’ll begin creating the wireframes, which are essentially the blueprints for your website.
The wireframes will define the overall design, layout, and hierarchy of your content throughout your site, and they also showcase the flow from page to page as well. Once the wireframes are complete, they will be presented to you for approval. If there’s anything you dislike, we’ll do revisions.
Stage #3: Web Development
In Stage 3, our web developers will start building out your site. This is typically the longest stage of a project – as it involves not only coding, but also content creation, content optimization, and usability testing.
We conduct usability testing throughout development to as ensure that your site functions correctly, loads quickly, and looks stellar across all the variations of operating systems, browsers, resolutions, and devices.
Did you know that over 1/3 of all web traffic is mobile? We design all our websites and applications to be fully responsive and optimized for tablet and mobile devices.
Revisions and Approval
Once we have the development and testing completed, we’ll present the site to you for approval. If any revisions are needed, we’ll get those handled quickly so we can get you to Stage 4 – Site Launch!
Stage #4: Site Launch
This is the final stage, and it involves transitioning your new website from our development servers to a live environment (we offer web hosting too).
Once your site is live, we’ll do one additional round of testing to be sure that everything is functioning as intended, and we’ll also address any domain mapping and 301 redirects that are needed so that your site’s standing not only stays strong with Google but also continues to grow.
Need additional services, web hosting, or web maintenance after launch? Excite offers everything you need, so you don’t have to worry.
At this stage, no one knows your site better than we do, and we’d love to continue working with you to grow your online presence! We offer monthly retainer packages customized for the services you need, or if you need a small edit from time to time, we also offer hourly billing.

I’m not sure where to start in describing how great Excite Creative Studios and their founder, Emma Loggins, are to work with but let’s start with – this isn’t your average design firm.
Then Excite came on to do our site re-design a few years ago we were still playing clean up from a significant hack that had previously brought the whole site down for weeks. At this point, we thought we were clear but there were still hacked files that were affecting rankings. Emma was able to get all of that cleaned up and secured all the while implementing the design improvements. Excite continued consulting with us for the following two years, was accessible via text for any website issues that occurred or for any access that needed to be reset if someone got locked out (even on weekends) and I’m sure of at least one instance where Emily happily did all of this while she was on vacation. Emma’s a ninja and one with a very infectious positive attitude. I highly recommend Emma and the whole team at Excite.
