What to Expect
No project is the same from start to finish, but when working with us, you can expect to see your project follow these phases.
Research & Strategy
Planning the Journey: We want to get to know you – your brand, your audience, and your mission.
We’ll guide you through identifying and refining your website goals. Through analysis and user research, we define the functionality and design direction your website needs to serve you and your audience.

A picturesque view: Visual design
A high visual aesthetic establishes your credibility and authority in your field. Whether your brand is friendly, professional, space-age, whimsical, or nature-inspired, your website should be an extension of you coupled with an elegant easy-to-use, intuitive interface.

Setting up camp: open source frameworks and third-party integrations
As your organization evolves, you need to be able to change your website along with it. Boxcar builds almost all of its websites on content management systems, usually WordPress. We want to enable our partners to create, publish, and schedule updates. What’s more, our solutions usually use free and open-source which means they will grow and expand as technology changes.

Reaching the summit: Training and quality assurance
There’s nothing quite like the view at the end of your journey. At the conclusion of the project, we will hand-off all deliverables and design elements. We are happy to provide a hosting solution for you or work with your IT staff to host your site. We tailor our training sessions for you and your staff based on their technical expertise and desire to control various aspects of the site.
