Our Process


Six Steps – Is that it?

How does this work? A great question and we’re glad you asked! What does it take to create a website and how does this process work?

Step 1 – Evaluation

Every project and every client is different and we never do “cookie cutter” websites or use pre-made templates. Our first step is to understand the scope of your project. What are your goals? What are your ideas? What is your budget? Do you need the ability to manage the website yourself or will we be doing that? Will this website need to accept credit cards or is there any other type of special functionality?

Step 2 – Project Proposal

Now that we understand your project goals, we develop a formal proposal which outlines the scope of the project, it’s features and capabilities, the project cost and a timeline. The proposal will clearly define what is included in the project so that our expectations and your expectations are sure to be the same. Should you agree to the proposal, work begins!

Step 3 – Initial Design

After speaking with you extensively about your likes and dislikes, reviewing your favorite websites and looking at what your competitors are doing, we create a picture of what could be your new homepage!

We have created a useful new website project checklist to help clients prepare for the creative design stage and to make the process efficient for both of us.

Step 4 – You Give Feedback, We Refine

Now it’s your turn to review what we came up with and provide feedback, including what you like, dislike, and would like to see changed. Based on your feedback we either refine the initial design or come up with something entirely new!

Step 5 – The Working Website

Once the final design is completed, it’s time for the behind-the-scenes programming to take place. The conceptual image we created begins to take shape as a real functional website!

Step 6 –  Finalize the Project

After every page has been built and the website has been tested thoroughly it’s time to “go live” and launch your new website!

Six Steps – Is that it?

Well it could be! A website doesn’t do you any good unless people are seeing it and in the months following the launch of your site, we’ll closely monitor how much traffic it receives. If it’s not meeting your business’ goals then we’ll want to advertise or optimize your website so that it can start generating the traffic you need to be successful!

Gecko Designs was a pleasure to work with while building out a brand new website. They understood what we were after and had creative and useful ideas to help us reach our goals for the website and for our organization. Communication was friendly and reliable throughout the process and they were available to troubleshoot any issues that arose before we went live, and after. Highly recommend!

Gabriel at Gecko Designs has proven over and over again that he and his team offer an incredible product to their clients (me!). I've been thrilled by his communication, the products they offer, and their responsiveness to my requests. Anyone looking for a website, logo, etc.. would be making a no-brainer decision to do business with Gecko Designs.

From intro meeting to final website, this was a great experience. Gecko created exactly what I was looking for, and was very timely and affordable. Great collaboration, lots of changes, and they made me feel comfortable every step of the way. I could not recommend more.

Our non-profit organization can't find enough adjectives to describe the top-notch, professional, and amazing work Gabe and his team provides. They have been amazing supporters of our organization from answering simple quick questions, to volunteering at our events, to helping us with graphic designs and website updates for our biggest event, to helping us with the mother of all projects....redesigning our very outdated website. We are always amazed at how quickly and efficiently they work despite us coming back with little nit-picky changes and requests. We often wonder if we're their only client because they are so quick to respond....but that is exactly how they want you to feel - as if you are their only/most important client. They are always willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done right by taking very careful consideration of their clients' needs, wants, and desires, and end up producing work that is nothing short of brilliant.

Gecko Designs is appropriately located next to the old Missoula Farmer's Market as it provides fantastic, local, IT expertise at a great price. My experience stems from an IT issue with Wordpress which Gecko Designs (i.e., Gabe) resolved immediately. He identified the problem instantly and had my site operational within the half hour. It is assuring to know such local and homegrown expertise and assistance is in the neighborhood!
