Client: Canteen Vending
Task: Charlotte, NC Website Design and Development
Avenue C contacted us with a challenging task... design, develop and launch a website in 6 days. Our reply... bring it on. Everyone in our shop was notified that we'll be burning the midnight oil for the next week, so be prepared. A timeline of task was prepared and a dated for materials to be delivered to us was set. The delivery date (April 4th, 2012) for the materials we needed to begin the design process arrived and passed. The following day a few materials started to trickle in and luckily it was just enough to get us rolling on design concepts. Already a day behind on our already tight schedule - we hammered through the day and evening and turned around a draft of the website's design for review.
The remaining content arrive on the 6th, the design was approved and we pressed on developing the website's code, creating the css styles for the font styles and page structure. We rendered background art elements based on some of their existing marketing materials, and created images and java scripts needed to build and power the site.
A few more days into the project and we had the entire site built and began running it through test and quality control to ensure the site was W3C valid, researched their competition and developed keywords and key-phrases and developed new keyword rich messages for their site pages to ensure their site would perform well in search results.
On the 9th we presented the site for review and after a few minor changes and a final review we launched the site on the 10th at midnight - a full day ahead of schedule. The following day we added a few site enhancing features such as the addition of a video within the slide show, further developed their keywords, page titles and descriptions, and setup a few social networks and applied their branding.
On the 12th we took a well deserved break.
Everyone is very impressed with the site. Again, I can't thank you enough for all your work on this.
