Work Flow 101
Meeting ~ Coffee?
We meet to get to know each other. You know what you want and even if you don’t I can help you get there. We’ll discuss your vision and ways it can translate to a website you’ll love.
Assessment of Current Website
If you have a current website that needs a refresh or even a complete overhaul, it doesn’t matter. We can work with what you have. Don’t have one? We’ll start from scratch.
Bring your brand to the web in a purposeful way means starting with the basic design. Interpreting your overall message and mission will scope the look and feel. Next we’ll work within a palette of colours to create your logo design and outline your style guide. With these elements in place we’re ready for scratch layouts!
Simply put, scratch layouts are sketches of your finished homepage and other essential elements. From there I’ll craft a fully customized WordPress theme or take your existing one and kit it out.
At this point your site will function the way it should with logical and intuitive interior mapping, including menus, forms and other functionalities. You’ll have custom pages and posts designed for you and media sizing will be determined.
Let’s make it gorgeous! Once your site is functional we’ll beautify it by focusing on typography, interior design elements such as buttons, and menu hovers that provide a pleasant and interactive experience for your visitors. We’ll keep the message of your business laser focused.
Uploading your site to the server will allow us to test it fully, ensuring all links go where they should and the bugs are ironed out. This is the fun part for me, you get to click around and make notes, I’ll do the fixing!
Training & Maintenance
Once your site is live and ready to go, it’s time to bring your baby home!
