Our Process

Strategic nonprofit-approach proven to yield results.

In order to provide the best websites for nonprofits, there must be a unique fusion of technology and design. At Elevation, we’ve fine-tuned a process that fosters this tight-knit integration, and gives us the flexibility to adjust our strategy to each project. Our approach is intuitive and responsive, fostering positive relationships and generating quantifiable change through aesthetic designs and quality solutions.

Project AnalysisPhase I. Project Analysis

We begin by getting to know your organization. In the initial meeting, you’ll be assigned a Project Manager to discuss your goals and expectations. Your PM will then analyze that information, and explain how it will fit into our creative approach. We’ll wrap up this phase by creating a blueprint complete with potential dates and deliverables to act as a guide throughout the rest of the process.

DesignPhase II. Design

Let’s start putting your ideas to work. After the initial meeting, we’ll have you complete a design questionnaire where you can express the specific details you want on your site. Our designers will then start creating the look & feel of the site based off the information provided in the survey. You’ll be given various opportunities to provide feedback to ensure that the site is being designed to your expectations.

Web DesignPhase III. Development

Once the look and feel is confirmed, our programmers will start making the website a reality. The Development Team will build the framework, and start incorporating the content and design from phase II. When we think we have a finished product, we’ll run tests for functionality and present the final site.

LaunchPhase IV. Launch

Upon approval, we’ll get ready to launch the site!  We’ll wrap up the project with basic training and a phone consultation to get you familiar with your new website. Though the project ends here, we won’t set you on your own completely just yet. Your Project Manager will be on standby for a post-launch period to offer additional support if needed.
