Tag Archive: Website Launch


We presented our final website last week and it was exciting to see each others’ work. There is always so much to learn and since our Capstone class has a varied bunch, there were a few tips to pick up from each of the website process. There were a variety of websites created, one designed a website for her own PR/marketing firm. Another website featured a contemporary tea house called Tea Fuse. Another colleague based her website on creating a web identity for her artist mom.

Mine was designed for the corporate organization, Raltec Corp offering software & technology solutions. I also incorporated the use of Google Analytics in the website. please visit the following link:

Cheers to Capstone! We now await for results from the Capstone evaluation team who will be grading us on this ten week project.

We also discussed the below topics in our last visit:

I may have missed other pointers. Feel free to leave your suggestions.

Thank you to all of you that made my Capstone project, a great and enriching experience….truly appreciate it.

I am referring to the Web development process, very often referred to as the six-stage process:

We learned this as a part of John Horn’s “Starting and Running a Successful Website” course and it makes it easier to break down this HUGE task of creating a website so easy.

  • Assessment (preliminary questionnaire, competitor analysis)
  • Analysis and Planning (site goals, target audience, roles and scope)
  • Design (Main template, content, site map)
  • Production (drafts with page look and feel and functional aspects)
  • Testing and Publish (functional, usability testing, etc)
  • Maintenance (SEO, visitor tracking, analytics, etc.)

I am in the process of reading Web ReDesign 2.0: Workflow that Works (http://www.web-redesign.com/) and it too does a great job to explain this.
