Website Design Blueprint
Website Design Blueprint
The steps outlined below are catered to individuals & businesses who are interested in a custom designed website. I only take a few of these types of projects each year, because they can take 1-2 months (depending on the scope of work)..so if you are interested contact me as soon as you know you’re ready to take the plunge.
We start by simply chatting! This is a free 30 min session where we talk about what your project will entail. What design & functionality you would like for your new website, what is needed for your business right now and what your future plans are.
I will work on your contract and proposal outlining the services included in your project to make sure we are on the same page. Feel free to go over all documentation to make sure you are comfortable moving forward. Sign the contract and send over a 50% deposit to get the project started. This is when you will officially be added into my calendar.
I am unable to promise a start date and/or end date until the initial non-refundable deposit has been made and cleared. During our call, potential dates will be discussed in detail, but they are not concrete until this step is complete. This helps me to ensure I block off time and give all of my clients the proper time that their project deserves. When a deposit is secured, I will turn away other potential work to make sure I can focus on you & your business. A deposit helps me to ensure that clients are serious about moving forward with my studio.
I will send over a packet that will include some questionnaires designed to help you along the way to convert your needs & wants into something concrete I can move forward with. We can go over these items together, via Phone or Zoom, to ensure you are comfortable with all of the items requested.
This might be the hardest part of the project, giving me a few weeks to take all of your ideas and bring them to life. I will provide you with preliminary designs to review and approve, before programming begins. Your first review of the “It’s alive” website will be approx 2 weeks after approval of the design mockups.
During the initial design phase, you will be gathering together all of the items needed for your new website. This will cover copy/content, photos, brand assets, relevant business information and more. Your packet outlines everything I need for your project, so you will know what information to gather together ahead of time.
I love feedback and want to hear it all! Together we will go through 2 comprehensive revisions of the live website to make sure your dream has been realized. I ask all clients to spend as much time as needed during this phase to make sure they view all areas of the site and make the best use of the revision process to catch things before we go live. This is also when the site goes through final testing, review all copy, check forms, fix all responsive views (on mobile devices) and more. We polish it up and get it ready for its debut!
When final approval and final payment is made we schedule the launch of your new baby.
Yay!!! It’s time to share this baby with the world. Once launched, you will also receive tutorials on how to manage different areas of your site. I set up videos on a private area of my site that are catered specifically to your project. You can view them at your leisure, and refer back to them to refresh your memory for as long as you need.
Wonderful. I look forward to having that first chat with you, where we can get to know each other and talk about your plans for your business and the new website. Feel free to plot a time to chat on my calendar below and we can get started! If you prefer to start the initial chat via email, you can contact me here and we can get started that way!
