Process

After reserving a spot with a deposit, we will start things off by gathering content. I use a content-first design approach. Learning about your business drives my design vision. I will send you a workbook to help you with writing content for your site, or I will refer you to a professional copywriter.

Next, we will meet and gather all materials. We will go over the project plan, timeline, and content for your new site.

Once I get to know you and your business well, I will deliver you an inspiration board filled with your navigation menu, color scheme, font selection and buttons. I do this to ensure that we are on the same page design wise.

The next step is the custom homepage design. I’ll send you a PDF file once completed, and ask for your review. This phase includes up to 3 rounds of revision to your homepage design. I want to bring your vision to life, just how you imagined it.

Here’s my favorite part. This is where I get to really tell your story. Like the homepage, I will deliver to you a PDF of each page. I will once again ask for your review before the development phase begins.

After you sign off on the design PDFs, I’ll bring your site to life. I will set up a staging site for you to preview the site once it is ready.

I will go through your site looking for any issues and defects, and will ask you to do the same. We will ensure your site is perfect before go live.

Congratulations! Your site is up and ready for action. Shortly after your site is launched we will set up a personalized tutorial to show you how to manage your site.

Like all things, your new website will require some maintenance such as plugin updates and backups. I offer monthly maintenance packages for all websites I create

FAQ

Why does all of the content have to be ready before you design my website?

I require that all of your website content (text, images and video) are completed before beginning on the design of your website.  I want to design and deliver you a website that is truly and uniquely you. Your words tell your audience about your service, what you sell, why we should be interested in it, and what actions to take next. Reading your content lets me get inside your head and deliver you a website design that gives your web visitors a taste of your amazing brand experience. It is my pattern in your extraordinary, custom website design.

When will my website be ready?

After we have our initial consultation, and you sign the contract and pay the initial deposit, you will be added to my calendar. I typically schedule one month out from when I receive your deposit to give you plenty of time to gather all of the content required for your website. Once the content is ready to go, we will have a kick off meeting which will officially start the time line. The entire process for my base web design package is 4-6 weeks. Depending on your needs this timeline could be longer or shorter.

How will we work together if I'm not local?

We will work together easily through the help of online tools such as Google Drive. I’ll keep you in the loop through email, phone calls, and even Skype if you’d like. Getting to know my clients is my favorite part of the job and I love to stay in touch even after their website is live.

what platforms do you use?

I usually use WordPress but am open to working with other platforms.

Do you do branding and logo design?

My background is in the more technical side of things but I love all things design. I will gladly design a logo for you, but can also recommend some graphic designers if you are looking for a more advanced logo design.

How much does it cost?

My web packages start at $2400 for a basic custom WordPress site including a homepage and 3 interior page designs. Every business has unique needs so the cost will change depending on the overall level of effort to accommodate the request.
