Process and Communication

Planning

Timeline Creation

  • A timeline ensures key dates are outlined to keep projects on track towards completion
  • Once a date for delivery has been agreed upon, deadlines will be added to BaseCamp, a 
web-based project management tool that helps contain the project conversation 


Research

  • Space2Burn uses research and documentation to determine the best long-term tools to use and the right users are reached with marketing messages
  • A website is any modern organization’s primary marketing and communication tool
  • Space2Burn surveys similar sites and provides a review of industry standards
  • The evaluation of targeted user groups’ needs is critical in web development and design
  • An elegant, user-friendly experience is not possible without administration tools required 
to update and maintain your website 


Sitemap

  • In order to refine site architecture to plan for completion, Space2Burn diagrams user flow and shows how website pages relate to one another
  • Our rapid development framework powers each page using a series of plug-and-play components that control different aspects of a website
  • Using these stock or custom components, we enable users to create and manage content 


Creative Brief

  • 
Space2Burn, in collaboration with the client, produces documentation regarding the outline or objective of the project to help develop creative deliverables

Design


Moodboard

  • Moodboards are collages with images, colors, typefaces, textures and other visual elements
  • Designers and staff use moodboards to help guide design concepts and to communicate to other members of the project while saving time and confusion
  • Creating a final moodboard defines the site’s mood and provides direction for design

Wireframe

  • Wireframes are blueprints to describe the general location for site content and page elements for each page template
  • Wireframe layouts are created for the homepage, subpages and supplemental pages to organize content in a distinct manner
  • Wireframes are not design, their function is to facilitate discussions of functionality independent of design 


Design Templates 


  • After a moodboard determines artwork direction and wireframes provide the structure, pages are designed to support your brand 


Pre-Production 


  • Space2Burn creates assets from the design that will be used in the website development process


Development


Determine Database Architecture

  • A database-driven website, which also stores and presents data, is only effective if it considers current and future needs
  • Space2Burn will help you create a flexible database architecture that evolves with your organization 


Php/Css Page Construction

  • Templates are built on Space2Burn’s staging site and prepared for inputting content

Custom Programming

  • Most projects require an amount of custom programming for custom and modified engines and front end widgets

Quality Assurance

  • Space2Burn tests the site and troubleshoots system bugs
  • Consistent performance is guaranteed to 95 percent based on current browser usage

Launch

  • Upon client approval Space2Burn moves client files from the staging to production environment and works with you to make the necessary DNS modifications to make the site go live

Communication

  • Your Project Owner is the single contact for Space2Burn
  • The Owner coordinates communication, approval and other launch-related activities
  • The Owner should have internal institutional knowledge
  • Space2Burn works with the Owner to define tasks, finalize a timeline and provide 
necessary training to other staff members using Space2Burn administration tools
  • BaseCamp is an online project management system that acts as Space2Burn’s primary 
communication vehicle
  • BaseCamp allows Space2Burn to contain file exchanges and communication, define 
milestones and assign tasks
  • Routine phone check-ins between the Project Owner and Space2Burn project manager is 
customary to assure tasks and milestones are on track
