Project process

The possibilities for digital communication are so far reaching that the prospect for a client can become quite daunting. We usually follow a straightforward 4-step process that helps us to help our clients to create an effective digital solution and more than that – to enjoy the process along the way!

Our process fits any digital solution – large or small – and works with any delivery methodology. Our web projects are run professionally, in accordance with best practice and with minimal risk.

In order to safeguard the project budget, our project managers are trained to monitor the scope and progress of projects in order to:

  • provide a mechanism to identify, communicate and escalate issues
  • offer visibility into project performance, risks and issues
  • control “scope creep”
