THE WEB DESIGN PROCESS
Building a site is a lot of work
but it can always be fun
Designing and building a strong and functional website can be an extensive process. To make things easier and show you what you can expect, I’ve broken down the process for you below!
Every single project starts with a signed contract and a deposit of between 33-50% of the total project cost.
I begin, I try to learn as much as I possible can about your brand to begin building solutions and a visual identity.
We discuss what you’ve been struggling with, where you want to go, and what you want to accomplish. We chat about design, content, your product/service, and your clients/customers.
During this phase, you’ll send me all your necessary logins (social media, e-marketing, old website, etc.) I provide you with a list of what I’ll need.
You’ll also send me all your page content, images, videos, and anything else I would need to build the site. I can provide a free website content workbook, or connect you with some amazing copy writers.
I build a collection of branded elements (font, colors, etc.) that represent your brand’s personality.
Unless you already have set colors and fonts that you would like to continue using, we use moodboards to nail down the visual components that make up your brand and website.
I will present you with a simple, black and white blueprint of your site.
This phase is to make sure we’re including all the right pages, that they appear properly in our navigation, and that we aren’t forgetting important content blocks.
Once the wireframe is approved, I create flat 2D versions of your site pages using the layout we created with the wireframes and visual elements we decided on during Brand Identity.
The idea behind this is to identify how the colors and shapes work together in the design.
Once the look of all the pages has been approved, I build out all the pages of the site, install the necessary plugins, and make it all actually work on your computer!
This is also where I pay special attention to make sure everything is mobile-friendly and functioning well when the human element is introduced.
training & launch
Just before launch, we have a screen-sharing training session where I walk you (and anyone else on your team who wants to learn) through how to update and make changes to your site so that you can do so whenever you want!
After that call, I launch the site on your domain and stick around for 14 days to make sure that if anything goes haywire, I can get you back on track.
Use activity-based pricing. That means your quote is built depending on how many pages and functionalities you actually need.
In order for me to build you a quote, I would need to know exactly how large the site should be and how much work I’ll have to put in to it. That means your site and your pricing is specific to your needs.
no restrictive packages
no pre-made templates
no pointless add-ons
