Frequently Asked Questions

Kick-off Meeting: After you have decided to work with The Ocean Agency, the first step in our process is to schedule a formal kick-off meeting at our office or yours. In this meeting, we will discuss your overall goals and objectives for the project and learn as much as we can about your business and audiences, striving to become an external part of your marketing department. From the knowledge gained in this meeting, our team will devise a forward moving strategy to meet your goals which will determine the layout and design of your website.

Sitemap: Our team determines the pages that should be included on your website and how each will be prioritized in the navigation to enhance user experience, informational flow, and conversion rates.

Wireframes: In this step, our team sketches out mock-ups of each unique page of your website. This allows for our clients to have a clear visual representation of the website from a design and content standpoint before any actual coding has begun.

Production: Now that the Sitemap and Wireframes have been completed, our development team can begin the process of building your website on our staging server. The website will not be live to anyone outside of your company, but our team will be able to provide a link which allows for you to interact with the website as it is being built.

Testing: To guarantee the website functions 100% as promised, our team takes the fully developed website through a vigorous testing process. This assures all functionality, responsiveness, and design elements are fully operational prior to the scheduled launch.

Training: We empower our clients to be able to update and retain full ownership of their newly launched websites. Our team will provide thorough WordPress training on the tools needed to update, maintain, and scale your website moving forward.

10 Years of Web Design in Chicago

We’ve been designing websites in Chicago for 10 years. Learn our history before you work with our web design team.

History

The Ocean Agency was founded in Chicago in 2003. Our business started with building websites, and in 2006 our team started offering SEO and PPC as well.

In 2007, Ocean’s staff grew to over five employees. The next year, we started to rank on the first page of Google for the term “Chicago Web Design.”

Ocean started to utilize WordPress as a CMS in 2010, and in 2014 the company launched its free website analysis tool.

In November of 2014, the Ocean Agency was acquired by Logical Media Group.

In 2016, Logical/Ocean hit the milestone of 40 employees.

One of Ocean’s biggest accomplishments came in 2016, Coming in at No. 891 on the Inc. 5000 list, an annual list of America’s fastest-growing privately held companies.
