Our 6 Step Web Design Process

Many web design agencies make the web design process complicated and mysterious. We at Magnolia Media believe in upfront pricing, clear timelines, and fast turn around times. That is why we have developed a design/development process that we follow for all of our web clients. Our expected timeline for new content managed websites is 4-6 weeks, depending on complexity. Below you will find what you can expect while working with Magnolia Media on your new website.


A customer outreach specialist will reach out to you to make sure we understand what is needed for your new site. This includes branding and design preferences. Our No BS Pricing makes it simple and easy to get a quote. Once your quote is locked in, it doesn’t change. No hidden fees or additional hours are tacked on!


There is a 50% payment due to begin. Both parties sign a secure, legally binding contract. Everything is spelled out clearly and in plain English. No advanced legalese or law degree required.


You provide us with a word or google doc with the text for your new site. (Need help writing? We can provide that also.)


We don’t do endless wireframes or mockups like many designers and instead start creating online, right where your new site will live! We provide you with multiple web design concepts. You choose the direction you would like to go.


We get started by setting up a test site on a temporary domain where you can view all the live progress. This ensures there’s no downtime on your current website while we are creating the new one. you will have access to this site throughout the development process. Development starts with the home page! Most feedback and revisions happen at this stage. Next, we design and develop the rest of the pages including the blog and any additional pages.


The moment you’ve been waiting for! Your new site is already set up and just waiting to take off! We test everything to verify all contact forms, integrations, and email addresses are working correctly. After the final 50% payment is made, we point the real domain name to your new site and just like that, your new site is live!
