During Production your project will be in a secret location so you
can follow along with and partake in guiding the process. Just as with
building a house much work is done before you see much progress.
We first prepare a style guide. This keeps track of your code, language
and style elements. It includes:
- Code conventions
- Page weight maximums
- Color palettes
- Editorial guidelines
- Original sketches and mock-ups
As you move into the hands-on phase of web development, follow these
- Schedule milestones - break the project up into digestible chunks
so that progress can be monitored and bottlenecks identified as early
- Coordinate teams - hold regular meetings so that every member stays
on the same page.
- Perform quality testing - use a focus group, friends, family, anyone
you trust to give you feedback on the site.
- Reposition ASAP - as soon as you see the need to change something,
do it right away.
Other checks and balances - Make sure that <META> tags are in
place, test pages for cross-browser/cross-platform compatibility, check
links and edit copy.
