Here’s an overview of what I need and an overview to help guide you along the process before we begin!
1. What I need to get started
PNG, EPS, or high res JPEG or PDF if possible
Your hosting account login and/or Cpannel username and password.
An administrator login to your current WordPress site. (if you have on up already.)
Images & Pictures
Current and/or new images and pictures you’d like to use on the new site.
Page content and any updated verbiage/ information for the site.
Brand Style Guide
Brand style guide, colors, or any specific design requirements.
Dubsado is an awesome online platform for communication and project management. I’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. You’ll have your own client portal with all our emails and task on the platform. Once your project is underway, you’ll receive an email to set up your basecamp profile and we’ll be off and running!
3. Google Drive
Google Drive is a great online image and file sharing platform. I’ll create a folder for your project and this is where you”ll be uploading images and website content.
4. The Design Process
1.Layout & Design
A large and time consuming part of designing a website is in the planning and layout stage of the process. I’ll create the sitemap (Page/Menu hierarchy) of the website for approval first, then I’ll design the home page and a sub page (or more upon request) for approval.
Once the site layout and design is approved, I’ll move forward with the designing the entire site, pages and add all functionality and plugins. We’ll make sure your site looks great and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers before moving to the final step.
3. Edit & Revisions
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.
