Tools we use

All these tools are optional – if you don’t require these tools to be used, please let us know.

Basecamp

Basecamp is an awesome online platform for communication and project management. We’ll be using this to send messages, share files and track progress during the process. This will help alleviate content and images being lost in long email threads. Once your project is underway, you’ll receive an email to set up your basecamp profile and we’ll be off and running!

Google Docs

Google Docs is a great online documents/file sharing platform. This isn’t necessary for every project, but if you have more than 15-20 images for your website or if they’re too big to send through email, we can use Google Docs.

The Design Process

Designing a website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process that can be overwhelming. To better help you understand what to expect during the design and development, we’ve outlined my process into 3 steps:

PLANNING & VISION

The initial part of designing a website is in the planning and layout stage of the process. In this stage we’ll create the sitemap (Page/Menu hierarchy) and exchange mood-board and ideas to make sure your vision is going in the right direction.

Exchange of assets

Once you’ve found the direction you want to take your website in we will go into execution to design the first draft once you’ve handed over all your assets (images, text).

INITIAL DESIGN

It’s here.
The first draft of your home page / funnel.
After this Initial Landingpage Design & Development, we need your feedback to continue making it epic.

FULL DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

Once the site layout and design is approved, We’ll move forward with the designing the entire site, pages and add all functionality and plugins.

REVISION & TESTING & OPTIMIZATION

Once the site is ready for final review, you’ll be able to review each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is revised completely. We ask that you please review ALL pages to make sure all spelling, grammar, addresses and information are correct before going live.
Once all pages have been signed off in content & design we will go ahead and optimize the site for Mobile / Tablet.
We also optimize it for Speed & Security.

LAUNCH & HANDOVER

Once the site is optimized and ready for launch, we handle all of that for you. We also teach you how to use your site.

WordPress Drag & Drop – we teach you how to use your new website, so you don’t have to constantly hire people to make those changes for you

after the Launch

Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to our “moving forward” page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website.
