    Custom Web Design

    A lot of designers claim to create custom websites, when in reality they customize other people’s templates - bastards! Unless otherwise stated, when you work with Fly Media, what you get is 100% custom from the ground up. Even our line of premium FlyDuo templates are custom designed in-house and built from scratch.

Our Process // How We Roll

What? ...Did you really think all of this - just happens?

  • 1. Free Consultation

    Rather than making any assumptions, let’s have a conversation. Let’s (briefly) talk ideas, goals, timeline, budget, music and family, and then decide if we’re a good fit for each other!

  • 2. Paperwork

    Like what we have to say? Confident we get your vision, and will get the job done? Found a price point you’re comfortable with? Awesome! Let’s put it in writing. We’ll start with a proposal, get the details worked out, and then finalize with an agreement and invoice for deposit.

  • 3. Reseach & Discovery

    We begin every project by taking some time to get to know your business, goals, market, competition, marketing strategy, and you! This is also where, and how, we discover what’s needed to ensure you outshine your competitors!

  • 4. Strategy & Design

    Before we begin even one line of code you will know exactly what you’re website is gonna look and feel like! Our design process starts with a single page concept and revisions. Once we get that page just right, then and only then, will Sherri move on to designing the rest of the website and it’s assets.

  • 5. Development

    Once the design process is complete and approved, Reuben will step in, and take the design from concept to completion. This is when the code is developed, functionality is built in, and the CMS is tailored specifically to you.

  • 6. Deployment

    At this point your new website is ready for the world - from design to development, it not only looks good, but functions like a well oiled machine, just waiting for you to take over! Before launching live, we’ll do a quick walk through with you of the completed website. If there are any final touches or adjustments that need to be made this is when it will happen.

  • 7. Training

    Every website we build comes with a private one-on-one training session, via telephone or Skype Video, as well as a reference manual. Both are designed to walk you though all the necessary steps to getting shit done with your new website. Additional sessions are available upon request.

  • 8. Support

    For the first 30-60 days after your project launches, we’ll be watching very closely to ensure everything continues to run smoothly. We also offer extended support options for continued maintenance, future updates and additions.
