We focus on understanding what your long term objectives are and we strive to achieve them. Other web agencies may believe that launching a website is the end point to a project, but we believe it is only the beginning. Thrillworks believes in a long-term agency partnership that evolves beyond launch.
While we’d love to boast that our way of bringing a project from conception to completion is entirely unique, we’re pretty sure that tried and true project management methodologies are the best way to get the job done. We do have a few ‘stupid human tricks’ up our sleeves though. Things like: integrity, honesty and top quality. You know all the things that shouldn’t be taken for granted when you hire a web agency but unfortunately not everyone lives up to.
We’ll launch your website AND call you in the morning…remember ‘no one site stands’ with us.
In the discovery phase we solidify our understanding of exactly what the website will be, who it is meant to serve, and the business objectives that are to be met by its launch. We work hard to understand your business, to get “into the heads” of your site’s visitors, and help you to identify just how your online properties can support your offline business objectives.

During the design phase, both the information design and the “look and feel” of the website are determined. Some of the tasks are: wireframes, prototypes, create design overall, iterate through the designs until you are satisfied and ready to sign-off, design initial database architecture, and create final information architecture.

The development phase of website creation is where the bulk of the heavy-lifting is completed. This is the phase of the project where the web development team focuses all their energy to bring the website to life. With some agencies, this phase can seem like a “black box” to clients where all of the work is being done behind closed doors: our strategy to avoid this black box is to have weekly status updates between our team and yours so that you can be confident that your website is on task and on schedule.

4. Deliver and Beyond
Quality control methods highlight the tasks involved in the delivery phase of website development. Here your website is tested, and tested, and tested again to ensure that it meets all the design, functional and technical requirements. Once we are sure that this site is of the high standards that we hold ourselves to, we will hand the website to you for “UAT” (User Acceptance Testing). You see it and use it before it goes live to the public. If need be, we incorporate any necessary fixes.

Other, less nurturing agencies view ‘launch’ as the end of the road, at Thrillworks it marks another important stage in the emerging relationship. We liken it to producing a newborn baby: after all, it’s important to make sure the child grows up strong and healthy!
We’ll develop a process for updating your website as well as providing you with suggestions and updates on future trends and technologies. Throw in some optional training and support, and… that’s it! A beautiful experience concludes and a wonderful relationship blossoms! At Thrillworks, the honeymoon is truly never over. Right, what are you waiting for? Contact Thrillworks today.
