To ensure quality in our designs, we work with a creative yet formulaic process that can guarantee your critical goals are achieved. We start by researching your brand and competition, then moving to analyzing current top sites that have similar features to your brand. After mapping and sketching your concepts, we design in-browser so that you get real, interactive mockups.
Producing high-quality, creative designs is one of the most enjoyable aspects of our work. We take time and care to produce websites that intrigue the user audience and develop your brand identity. Staying ahead of your competition is important and nothing does that better than outclassing them online.
The entire purpose of a website is to guarantee that your users are taking the actions you need them to. If you’d like them to contact you for a quote, we base the entire concept around that. Or, if you’d like them to register for an event, we guarantee that’s the highlight of your web design. By focusing your goals, we increase the amount of users you convert.
More often than not, usability is lost when attempting to be creative. However, at Studio Ace of Spades, we focus on creating designs that are both eye-catching and practical. If a site looks great without being able to be understood by the user, you’ll lose traffic. We focus on following best-practices with navigation, site layout, and site mapping.
Building a beautiful, functional website is the top priority when online success is a key to your business. We take time to carefully research and plan your site - from the colors and fonts down to the shape and placement of your buttons.
The tiniest of details can make the world of difference. When you're an e-commerce store selling $200,000 worth of product per year, a 10% conversion rate increase means an additional $20,000 per year for you in sales.
The first step in any project is to discover your needs. We'll set up a time to talk either in-person, or if you'd prefer, over the phone, Skype, or any other tool you'd like. During the call, we'll move through the discovery process - about a one-hour meeting to fully grasp your needs.
During this, we'll define goals, objectives, milestones, and stakeholders. After a thorough understanding of what you need, we'll draw up an estimate and quote for you. Our turnaround time on estimates is approximately one business day; however, larger projects may require more time.
Objectives are the key to any successful project. By using goal-oriented development and planning, it optimizes our time, our workflow, and your budget. By setting goals with metrics, you’re able to measure results and analyze your ROI.
During this step, we refine lofty ideas and mold them into tangible, achievable goal sets with measurable metrics. Once these are defined, the success point of the project should be self-evident, allowing us to move forward into the design phase.
Here, we turn your project into reality. From sketching a concept through a final product, we take immense care in what we do. During this portion of the project, you'll get weekly check-ins from us with status updates and, if applicable, screenshots or links to a development site.
You will work with us on revisions and review over the course of this section. At The Studio, we find it mission-critical to keep our clients involved in the project.
After executing the plan, we set aside a block of time to ensure the quality of our product. We take the time to thoroughly test and benchmark our work to be able to promise the quality of product that we do. We will also work with you to do a final check of the site and implement any final changes you have.
Time and time again, we've watched others in our industry ignore this critical piece of the project. Surely, you'd have an editor go over the final draft of your novel you've written. Why not the application or website you're building?
This is probably the most exciting part of the project - taking everything live. During the launch process of the project, we'll tie up any loose ends in the code and triple check that everything is working for you.
Finally, we'll deliver you documentation and video screencasts of how to use the administrative section of your site or application and provide plentiful training so that you feel comfortable using the tools you're provided.
The sooner you get in touch with us, the better off it will be. We can assist you in prioritizing what's crucial to your success and progress through the project from there. With four in-house web developers, we can turn your project around more quickly than just about anybody else.
You bet. Chances are that if you've seen it on the web, we've built something similar. Plus, we're not shy about working with different technologies, integrations, and frameworks. We have yet to encounter a project where we've said, "No way, you're crazy."
Honestly, it depends on the complexity and number of pages that you need to be designed. Including planning and communication, a homepage will take about about a week. Generally, that's the most complex page on the website as it defines the look-and-feel for all subpages. Contact us for a custom estimate. They're free!
I appreciated the excellent customer service at Studio Ace of Spades. It was great to always deal with the same person. Jon treated any question — and the project as a whole — with respect. He returned phone calls promptly and met deadlines. The result was an attractive site that matched our needs and garnered many compliments.
The team at SAOS always puts me at ease when working on web projects. They are calm, cool, and collected and have a way of translating digital jargon in a way that I can understand it and communicate it back to my client.
I’ve worked with the SAOS team since 2012. They're professionals that truly understand web technologies, always advising along the way, so I know what my investment is going to accomplish. Whether it be while I was at an agency or for the occasional freelance project, I’ve turned to the SAOS team for many projects - design, websites, mobile app and digital strategy - they’ve done it all for me, and I have valued their guidance and knowledge.
