About ECHO

What We Do

Branding

A brand is more than a mark or a logo; it's a purposeful narrative that embodies your mission, values, and goals. We help our clients grow their businesses by developing story-lines and assets that engage and inspire audiences.

UX/Web Design

A website is a marketing tool, a lead-generator, a content syndication hub, and the first place people go to learn more about your organization and culture. Through our Web/UX process, we help brands deploy well-designed, feature-rich experiences on the web.

Web Development

We don't just solve visual problems, we solve technical problems as well. It doesn't matter if we're developing a theme or custom tailoring new features from the ground-up, we know that everything has to work well from the get-go.

Our Process & Methodology

1. Meet-and-Greet

Sometimes it's a sales call, sometimes it's a sit-down conversation over beer or coffee, but at the end of the day it's an opportunity for everyone to get a feel for the other party. We know that any business transaction hinges heavily on the personalities involved and we want to be sure that you (as well as us) are on the same page from the very start.

2. Kick-Off

We begin each project with a client workshop where we interview key stakeholders about important project goals. This enables us to develop a core strategy for your project; mapping out hard requirements so we can come up with a solid schedule, list of features, and executables. It’s fun, it’s enlightening and it’s critical to the success of a project.

3. Strategy

We're in the business of building platforms and beneath every solid platform is a core strategy for success. Through the development of user profiles, content plans, and audience workshops, we create the framework for every asset and moving part that your audience will interact with; allowing us to craft a complete experience.

4. Prototyping

It's time to put something tangible on the table. Through a process of refinement and iteration, we begin to develop the UI of your site using paper prototypes and wireframes; focusing on increased clarity and fidelity with each new variation as we build out the interactive layer of your project.

5. Styling

With our interactivity layer nailed down, it's time to focus on the graphic identity of your site. This is the "fun" part of the process where we conduct the color studies, font and imagery selections, and tweak animations. The end result is a harmonious merging of aesthetic and functionality that is as delightful as it is utilitarian.

6. Deployment

Before we go live, we’ll bake-in all of the necessary SEO work, migrate your content, and bug test everything. Once everything looks good, we’ll deploy your site to a fast and stable cloud environment before handing you the keys. It doesn't get any easier than that.

7. Celebrate

Phew! The site is launched and you're getting compliments from everyone you know. It's time to relax. While you do that, we'll monitor, maintain, and make any necessary revisions based on the data we dig up. Simple as that.
