Planning a site is more than just the design and architecture phases I previously spoke about. Your plan needs more than an outline to guide you. It needs something that will help keep you on track.
The purpose of this article is to provide a quick outline for the process we use at VMLY&R to design and architect a website. In the future, I will provide an in-depth walkthrough of this process with a hypothetical project.
One thing that we like to do with most of our bigger projects at VMLY&R is an Arc Review (short for Architecture Review). These are the common questions we ask ourselves and answer then review as a team to make sure it all makes sense before we go off and build the site.
