aposto in Italian means "properly done, in the right way". That's the wish and the goal for all our works, to be a posto
Masaki Wakagi (1992)
I have a degree from The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics, a leading IT school. After graduating, I worked at a web agency based in Osaka. In 2015, I founded aPosto with an Italian web designer.
The production of the websites relies on a fundamental communication process between aPosto and the client. Here are the steps that lead to the produciton of your website:
During the first meeting with my clients I get to know them and their business. Together we evaluate the reasons for having a website and therefore its goals.
In a second meeting I present the type of website, the technology and the structure that can satisfie my client's needs. If the client agree on the proposal, we move to step 3.
In the third meeting one or more design drafts for the homepage are presented to the client. We can discuss together all the design choices and evaluate the need for any change.
In this step all the website pages are designed, also for mobile and tablet sizes. The result is then presented to the client, and if accepted, is put into production (step 5).
The design of the webiste pages is developed into the final working website, which is then tested on multiple browsers and devices.
The website is delivered to the client, which means, it is openly published online. This is the 'a posto' moment.
