Ours is a proven process that makes complex solutions a breeze to build.


We begin all engagements by gaining a deep understanding of your business and organization. During this phase we undergo an in-depth analysis of your project’s primary objectives, your customer personas and user-types, clearly articulating what we’re building and who we’re building it for. Our discovery process includes:

• Project Analysis
• Audience Analysis
• Competitive Research / Review
• Establishment of High-level Goals
• Feature / Functionality Definitions


In this phase, we work with our client team to evaluate technical requirements and content goals, planning a complete road map for your project. Design, development and content creation are at the center of our discussions. Our planning process includes:

• Project Team Working Sessions
• User Experience Strategy
• Information Architecture
• Technical Architecture
• Content Inventory
• Timeline / Schedule Review


At this stage, crude wireframes evolve into functional prototypes for desktop and mobile testing. We collaborate with end-users to refine our user experience flow, screen layouts and visual design concepts. Upon approval, these concepts are turned into detailed design themes and production templates, ready for development.

• Project Team Working Sessions
• User Experience Flowchart
• Wireframe Protoypes
• UI Behavior Specifications
• Visual Design Concepts
• New Content Considerations


With design templates and UI specifications approved, our production team begins to slice, optimize, and code the framework of your digital platform. When development nears completion, we provide client reviews for final considerations and acceptance testing. Analytics are usually implemented at the end of this phase.

• Project Team Working Sessions
• Front-end Development
• Backend Programming
• Content Population
• Analytics Implementation


As development nears completion, we create a quality assurance (QA) road map for testing the entire site/application. During testing we will create a bug resolution log to ensure that all issues are addressed. When the QA process is complete, we work with your I.T. team to coordinate deployment!

• Quality Assurance Testing
• Bug / Content Resolutions
• Hand-off Documentation
• Site Deployment (Launch)


Great partners from great companies!

We couldn't have been happier with the website and support we have received from Dieselhaus. They created a beautiful website and walked me through every aspect to make changes myself. Anytime that I needed their help they were there immediately. They even created a sister website for our second location and it was seamless. When I get too busy to edit the website, they have it done within a short time of me asking. I couldn't give enough praise to Dieselhaus!!

I wholeheartedly recommend Dieselhaus to any individuals or organizations in need of redefining their presence on the web! This was precisely the position that my company, Motion Source, was in when we approached DJ about redesigning our website to match our service offering. We are very proud to count ourselves as one of the premiere video production studios within the Chicagoland area, but for many years our website was anything but premiere: it simply did not reflect the quality and attention that goes into the work that we do. I am a firm believer that the caliber of your marketing materials influences prospect's impression of the value of your services; we desperately needed our online presence and our portfolio to coincide. And, Dieselhaus ensured that this happened. DJ and his team were an absolute pleasure to work with! From the moment that we engaged them, we entered into a beautifully collaborative relationship; within which our needs, preferences, and ideas were transformed into a finished product that turned out better than we had ever anticipated. Please, do yourself a favor: if you need help with your website and general presence, contract Dieselhaus!
