The design cycle

The initial step in constructing any product is the planning phase, where we consider the look, feel , and goals of the project.

Following the planning phase is the design phase, where we transform all the information gathered during planning into a tangible reality.

After design comes the development phase, where the design from the previous phase is implemented on a live website.

The subsequent phase is the launch phase, involving the delivery of the product to the public.

Once launched, the post-launch phase commences, during which we closely monitor user behaviour and feedback to learn and iterate on the product.
