How it works
WEBSITE DESIGN PROCESS
First, do you have a logo for your business yet?
Yes, I have a logo already.
Great. Lets get to work!
Here are the steps to creating an AMAZING website.
Keep in mind that a successful project thrives from a great partnership between a designer and a client.
You will have homework to do. I’ve coloured them in teal.
No, I don’t have a logo yet.
Let’s work together an look at branding options before we jump into designing your website.
Get in touch
Let’s chat about your project needs and find out if I’m the right person for you.
Whether it’s for a coffee, for a wine or on Face Time, I want to know all about you and your project.
Let’s identify the goal.
Help me help you!
Get a quote
With all your information gathered I’ll define the scope of the project and send you a fitting quote.
Seal the deal
Let’s revise the project milestones and sign our contract.
Before I can start designing and developing your website, I will need to gather content from you.
It’s important that the client understand their role in meeting deadlines with content, so the launch process isn’t held up.
Research & Design
STEP 1: Research
STEP 2: Sketch & Ideas
UI Design – The look and the feel of your website

For drafts submitted, it will be expected that the client thoroughly study it and list all the changes needed in one document or email. This will count as a revision or “rounds of revision”.
The clients will be allowed 7 days for feedback and revisions.
Depending on the contact details the client may have up to 3 revisions available.
Testing, Review and Launch
You’ve just finished your website and you’re ready to show it to the world!
This is a huge undertaking and an exciting step in any business’ journey!
Updates & Maintenance
Most of my packages included a one-hour in-person (or virtual) training session to teach the client how to make changes to the website’s content.
“Websites are Like Cars”
It’s a major responsibility to maintain a website after it’s been launched.
Theme updates, plug-in conflict, backups, security check, website performance, analytic review, SEO checklist… Whether you want to this on your own or need some backing, lets discuss your options and review what will work best for you.
