Website Design and Web Development:
how it works
Many people don't really know what to expect when first hiring a web design / development company like JL·Design. Why would they? So, we'll attempt here to demystify the process and also give you an idea of the stages involved in getting your website up and running. From the point of your agreement to work with us, this is what happens:
The Functional Spec
At this point, the basis for the project is agreen upon in detail. With this 'functional specification' document, we outline the project in detail. It contains a good breakdown of the functionality for the website - for e.g., if we're building an ecommerce application, we'll write up how the shopping cart will function, how the checkout process will work; we'll describe the admin areas of the site, etc. This document then gets agreend upon and we move on to the next stage.
