The fun part!
After our initial phone or personal conversation, I will send over a digital questionnaire to ask you a LOT of questions about who you are and what you want to achieve for your business design goals. This step is crucial – so be prepared to spend a bit of time on it. Not only does it help me, but it really helps you in getting clear on your vision.
Once I have all the information I need, I’ll put together a basic sitemap – a visual skeleton of how your site is laid out – pages, call-to-actions, etc. This will give us a sound foundation to build from.
Once the sitemap is approved, I will create a live test site on my server which we can both view during the build. I will set up the basic structure with all of its pages and links. We won’t be making it pretty at this point – that comes a little later – but we’ll have a living, breathing, functioning structure ready to add the creative layer to.
The entire process is fun, but here’s where it gets JUICY. If I’ve created a branding identity for you already, or you already have one, this is where we apply it. Colors, fonts, logos, photography – this is where your vision comes to life. That’s why it’s crucial you do your due diligence as my partner in creating quality content. Here are some sites I’ve built.
Test & Take Off!
Before we launch your site on your hosting platform, together we take a little time to test it – go through the entire thing and test the links and see how it’s working on mobile devices. We will also test contact forms and any other functionalities. Then – your site goes live and you can show it off to the world!
