At Kelp we understand that even when you have
to be creative, you still have to be organized.

This is why we follow a strict guideline when crafting solutions and working with our clients. We keep our solutions broken down into six core categories; these categories aren’t just to help us group our services into easy-to-understand sections, but also to showcase how any project or solution should be set up in order to have the best chances of success.

Solution Pipeline


1. Strategy
2. Content Creation
3. Design
4. Development
5. Marketing
6. Ongoing Support

The order in which these categories are listed is particularly set to help understand the pillars of great solutions and what type of work is necessary before moving on to the next.

No matter who you are, or what business you work with, every deliverable will start with strategy. Whether you provide that documented strategy or you have us build it alongside you, it would be required before we start creating content. This ensures everything that is crafted works towards accomplishing your goals. This same pattern is applied to every category in the process. So, if you are looking for Marketing, always be sure that you have a solid digital foundation established in the previous categories before trying to spend money on promoting your business or service. (Believe us, it’s worth it)

We follow this system closely to keep all of our solutions both creative and Impactful. The great news is that at Kelp, all of these solution types fall under our expertise, so if you are just starting off, or if you are well into this digital journey, we’ve got you covered.

The Project Process

At Kelp, we take pride in our creations. We know that for any properly developed solution there needs to be a well-engineered process working in the background ensuring both accuracy and quality. We break down every project in four different parts so that it is easy to understand what to expect along the way, and know exactly whom is responsible for what. In each phase, Kelp will inform the client of their responsibilities and of any deadlines that correspond.

Discovery

No solution is well-prepared without an inclusive discovery process. The Discovery Phase establishes the answers to a projects most important questions. In this phase Kelp gathers all project level information including: assets, content, strategy, and project end-goals. This information is then used to thoroughly prep the project for the very best solution possible. We believe that without first answering “Why”, we cannot meet the needs of our clients.

Planning

After the project groundwork is laid and understood by all parties, Kelp will use it to construct a production plan. This plan may come in several varieties, depending on the project, but will always serve to express the tactics, techniques or overall style that will be used to craft the final product. This phase of a project makes the “How” clear to both parties; as in, “How are we getting this done?”. The client will have an opportunity to approve this production plan before moving into final production.

Production

Now that the strategy and production plan have been created and approved, Kelp is ready to move into the full creation and proper application of the project’s deliverable. A tangible product is created to the exact specifications of the approved production plan.

Deploy

No solution is well-prepared without an inclusive discovery process. The Discovery Phase establishes the answers to a projects most important questions. In this phase Kelp gathers all project level information including: assets, content, strategy, and project end-goals.

We bring your ideas to life.

Whatever you can imagine, we can probably create it. We are good at what we do, but in order to bring your idea to what you are envisioning, we’ll need to ask you lots of questions first. Understanding your who, what, where, and why will be our team’s #1 goal before we execute on the how.

We have 6 core solutions that work best when they’re completed in order. You may only need help with one or two areas or you may need all the above if you are a new startup.
