We invest a great amount of time into planning and developing a new WordPress theme, until we feel that it is ready to be released. For us, it is all about the people who use our products.
Planning Let's do this!
What steps are necessary to bring our idea to life? We research, talk to people in the specific industry, define priorities and milestones and get our heads into the project.
Wireframe Bring out pen & paper!
What's in it and what could it look like? We create sitemaps and sketch the user experience. We aim for the best foundation possible before we start developing.
Development Time to shine!
We create the actual design and develop the theme, always keeping an eye on the user experience. After all, the theme has to be easy to use and to set up.
Documentation Almost done!
To make sure that you are not thrown into cold water, we invest a lot of time creating an extensive, illustrated user manual and matching tutorials for each theme.
