Boulder Website Design + Development Agency

DD9 is a Colorado-based, high-end, full-service, professional Boulder website design and graphic design firm with an uber-cool, three-character dot-com. For more than 10 years, we have offered a broad spectrum of creative, visual and internet-based design and development services to local and national businesses and organizations.

The DD9 Process

Our process begins with design discovery and technology requirements meeting, often right here at our studio in north Boulder with a view of the Flatirons. We will hash through architecture, functionality requirements, technologies and site goals. Then we create rough wireframes, UI/UX strategy, database schema and definitions. The first stage concludes when we hit the drawing board and start designing the master site templates. The design stage focuses on the creation of the mocks-up, a.k.a. comps. These comps establish core elements of the site, including basic layout, navigation, color scheme, font styles & text formatting, logo placement, and sets the tone for the brand. We typically complete a couple rounds of revisions on the leading template design.

Once the comps are approved, we will convert the design into HTML/CSS theme files. While this takes place, our development team is busy creating the back-end foundation and customizing the content management system (CMS). Typically, we are working with WordPress or Ruby on Rails.  Finally, we apply the theme files, add JavaScript UI interactions and debug. We test across all modern browsers, and popular legacy versions as well.

The DD9 Results

When complete, DD9 will deliver a custom, consistent, professional, and expandable website, coded-to-suit, right here in the Front Range.  Following site launch, we typically assume the webmaster role, providing support services, deploying expansion modules and implementing new features as requested.
