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!

Working with the team at Gecko Designs has been fantastic! I worked closely with Ali to create a new meetings website and she was so patient with all the changes to copy and took the time to walk me through the back-end of Word Press. I am confidently making changes on own but know that any request will be done quickly. The team was even very responsive over a weekend to meet a deadline. Highly, highly recommend!

Gecko's team does great work. We had a fairly complex request with a variety of stakeholder interests at play. Their team listened carefully and responded thoughtfully to our needs throughout the process! We were very pleased with the process and thrilled with the final product they provided.

The website that was built for us does not work on all browsers. Specifically, the product configurator, the most important part of the website, produces an error on older browsers. Very disappointed and frustrated.

Gecko brings an immense amount of talent and expertise to any project, adding value and saving us time at every step of the process. We've been blown away by their balance of creative capability (across strategy, ideation, design and execution) with impeccable execution, on time and on budget every time. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Gecko Designs had us at the lead phrase on their home page: "If you're tired of flakey freelancers and want to work with a team of professional, reliable experts, you've come to the right place!" We were at that point developing our site that we needed to step up to a professional team with a demonstrated portfolio of blue-chip sites, and the expertise to help bring our crazy ideas to fruition. We're looking forward to The Missoula Underground being a vital part of the Northwestern Montana scene, and the first step was picking up the phone and having a conversation with Gabe. Don't hesitate to hire their team, they are ACES at web design and development. Thanks, Gecko!
