Here's What We Do Better
Planning and Scope
This phase defines the strategic goals of the project that allows us to plan and agree on scope. Tell us about your company’s history and the mission of your company. Outline the general overview of the services that need to be completed by visionsConnect. Ask yourself these questions: What is the message? Who is my audience? What is the overall goal? Who is my competition and what are they doing that is successful? Clear goals allow us to focus on what we can provide moving forward.
Once this information is communicated, we can then define the scope of the project: the timeline, deliverables and closing activities.
Give us the goods. We need some very important items from you so we can begin this journey. Tell us the color scheme you’d prefer or examples from other companies that you like. Already have a logo? Send it to us in vector format (EPS, PDF) so we can integrate it into the design.
We also need content. We don’t consider ourselves wordsmiths and you know your company best. If you do not have someone to write verbiage, we could recommend someone to you. Do you have photos or imagery to use? If not, we can guide you where to purchase these along the way.
Develop and Design
Time for us to get busy. We will begin development on your website and/or graphics. This will involve setting up the foundation for deliverables which usually includes setting up a database, designing a theme, and developing the product. You may receive a few mock-ups or ideas along the way so be sure to look out for those and we need to keep the line of communication open.
Feel free to check in and ask for progress as we want to make sure you are happy along the way. Don’t be a stranger – we want this to be a lasting relationship.
Review and Launch
The time has finally come! Let’s review.
Our constant back and forth of sharing ideas, mockups, and usability and lead us to the final review. Did we cross every ‘t’ and dot every ‘i’? Click around on the website, put in a test order, print out that image, do a stress test with other employees. The product needs to be battle-tested so when public, no surprises come up.
Time to launch! If it’s a website, we will pick a date and time for go-live. Design work deliverables will be zipped up and delivered securely. Wear a smile because this is a big day for your company.
Our process has worked wonders for both us and our clients. It defines the approach that needs to be taken when making an idea come to fruition. Many of our competitors leave their clients in the dark while deliverables are being created which not only is unprofessional, but also scary when your own money is on the line. We make ourselves available through both emails and phone calls. Communication is key to a successful launch.

To design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit: it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to modify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade, and perhaps even to amuse. To design is to transform prose into poetry.
