How It Works

I make the web design process as simple as possible and specialise in hand-holding for those who need it. Building a website should be a collaboration between us, so I work closely with you to create your site and fill it with content.

Several of my clients have found that working on their website helped them understand their business better. It can be a deep and powerful experience if you want it to be, but you can also take your time with it and start off with the basics to establish your web presence.

Before we start working on your site, it helps if you have a few ideas about what you want–

  • Do you have domain names in mind? Write them down, but don’t purchase yet.
  • Do you have a logo that you love already? Do you want to build the site around that, or something else? Are there specific colours that you want to work with?
  • Have you checked out your competitor’s sites to see what they’re doing? Look at what they’re doing right as well as what you think their sites are lacking.
  • Do you have links to sites that you like the look or functionality of? It can also be useful to me to know what you don’t like about websites.

Step 01

Project Definition

We get all the details down- domain name options, site objectives, the look, feel and image that you want to project, preferred colours, a rough draft for organising your content including possible page titles and navigation, etc. This can be done in person or via phone and email depending on what works best for you. Together, we will come up with an estimated cost of the website based on budget, size, features, and content required. A 50% deposit is required to begin work.

Step 02

Website Design

Next, you will purchase your domain name while I use all of the information you’ve given me to come up with a “mood board” to show you what I have in mind for your site. This may include website layout options or I may just start working directly on the site. Your input at this stage is crucial– I want you to love your website, so I will tweak the design until you’re happy.
Step 03

Text & Images

I now work with you to fill your site with effective content. I help you get the words just right, create eye-catching images, and bring a fresh perspective to your project to make sure you aren’t missing something that may be obvious to you.
Step 04

Approval & Launch

Links to pages will be sent to you for final approval before your site is launched and then an invoice will be sent out for the balance due on the completed site. We keep in touch for site updates and I do regular maintenance and security on the site.
