Fishbowl Marketing had a vision for how their website could be redesigned to help expand their on-demand marketing business. IDEAS2IMAGE developed a customized system to meet the company’s exacting specifications.
As Fishbowl Marketing’s market expanded, the firm increasingly relied on its website as a business development tool. The company’s success meant that Fishbowl’s internal marketing team faced a growing administrative challenge managing the site’s day-to-day updates, specialized forms, and targeted messages on their site. It quickly became apparent that a new approach was needed. IDEAS2IMAGE was brought in to help Fishbowl design a system that would minimize administrative overhead, while delivering a flexible structure that used Fishbowl’s in-house designs.
Over the years, we have refined our processes to help ensure that IDEAS2IMAGE effectively delivers every time. Although Fishbowl had a well thought out site architecture and interface design, we relied on our proven process and began the project with a thorough review of the firm’s website needs. By speaking with Fishbowl, understanding their challenges, and examining their existing materials, IDEAS2IMAGE was able to recommend refined approaches that would significantly reduce Fishbowl’s long-term website administrative burdens.
IDEAS2IMAGE delivered a revised website architecture, content outline, and page wireframes to Fishbowl, so that we could establish a shared vision of how the redesigned website would function. We worked closely with Fishbowl’s in-house team to revise the interface designs to accommodate the planned system, and used these design composites as a basis for creating HTML templates.
The system functionality required by Fishbowl could not be found in an existing Content Management System (CMS). IDEAS2IMAGE performed a gap analysis on our preferred CMS, Expression Engine, and identified areas in which new system components would need to be created. To deliver the exact functionality the Fishbowl required, we created Expression Engine plug-ins, modules, and extensions. Each component was planned, prototyped, developed and tested by IDEAS2IMAGE.
IDEAS2IMAGE consistently delivers superior websites, because we place a heavy emphasis on learning about the client’s core business needs early in the project. We identify functional requirements, constructing a development plan that will result in a successful project delivery. This knowledge is captured in a detailed project planning documentation that identifies specific milestones and project expectations.
Over the course of the project, IDEAS2IMAGE performs in a consultative role to solve the communication and technical challenges of website design. We determine the proper brand presentation, visual design, and information architecture for your project. Our iterative approach to development gives us the ability to exceed our client’s expectations.
IDEAS2IMAGE employs a modular approach to development. Each discrete component (i.e. design, application module, or animation) is developed so that it can be independently modified, while continuing to function within the context of the larger project. This maximizes flexibility and allows us to deliver efficient systems that achieve the client’s objectives.
