At Purple Squirrel, we believe strongly in working with “best of breed” partners for everything we do, and we view ourselves to be a “best of breed for design and development.” As such, we do not currently perform services such as PPC, Video, Photography & Animation, and or copywriting. However, because of our vast experience, we know companies that can.
If we don’t provide a service you are interested in, we can certainly connect you with one that we believe to be “best of breed” in that field.
That being said, we make a deliberate effort to focus on designing and building websites and to be the absolute best at it.
We design beautiful websites. However, our websites are more than just aesthetically pleasing to the eye. They are also designed and developed to get results. We believe strongly in designing sites that the end users will find intuitive and thus leave them with a positive experience. We also build sites that our clients can manage. All of this starts with listening to our clients to get a complete understanding of their business, their audience, their challenges, as well as, their goals and objectives.
At Purple Squirrel, we provide technical consulting services on things such as hosting, security, and 3rd party tools. We also provide strategic consulting, design, and website development.
Our Services include:
Web Application & Software Development
Website Design & Development
Content Management Solutions
Social Media Marketing
User Experience Design & Testing
Our Development Process
We take a structured approach to web design. Our development process was created to ensure every project is delivered on-time and on-budget. Once your web design project kicks off, here’s what to expect:
The first order of business is to sit down with your team and create a detailed set of design and technical specifications. These specifications serve as a roadmap for the rest of the web design process.
Once all site mockups are completed and approved, we’ll proceed with site mockups. These add color and a bit more detail to the initial wireframes, giving us a stronger visual representation of the final product.
Once we’ve agreed on a final design based on the mockups, our team will proceed with development, kicking off two phases in unison. The first involves creating your site’s graphics. Our designers slice up the photoshop files to produce the graphics that will get implemented into the site.
At the same time, we’ll kick off the technical side of the web design process. This will include deploying your CMS, creating your custom theme and page designs, and setting up your website’s analytics.
Once our writers, designers, and developers have finished their work, our Quality Assurance team will get to work testing your site’s performance and reliability. We’ll use various tools to benchmark your site for loading, responsiveness, and speed, while also ensuring that it works reliably on all web browsers and mobile devices.
Deployment & Optimization
Once we’re sure that your site is ready to be released to the public, we’ll deploy it on your public domain. Then, we’ll shift into a monthly support process that will continue for 12 months. During that period, we’ll create monthly backups of your site, update scripts and plugins to maintain security and reliability, and perform layout and content updates at your request.
