1.) WHAT WE NEED TO GET STARTED
- Your Logo (PDF, EPS, or high res JPEG if possible)
- Hosting Login (hosting account and/or CPanel login)
- Current Website Login ( if current site is a WordPress site)
- Images or any new Pictures you would like to use for the new site
- Brand Style Guide, colors or any special graphics being used
All files should be uploaded to your secure Dropbox folder
2.) Google Drive Folder
Google Drive is a great online image sharing platform. This is not necessary for every project, but if you have more than 15-20 images for your website, or if they are too big to send through email we can use Google drive. We can also use this for important logins and credentials instead of sending through email. We will set up a folder for the project and share the folder with you via email. You can upload all images and files there.
4.) THE DESIGN PROCESS
Designing a website, no matter how big or small is an extensive process that can be overwhelming. We have outlined our process into 3 steps.
Step 1 - Layout and Design
A large and time-consuming part of the website design is in the layout structure and design of the site. We will create the framework of the website and will send the homepage and a subpage (or more upon request) for approval.
Step 2 - Development
Once the site layout and design are approved we will move forward with designing of all pages, functionality and responsive code, making sure your site looks great and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers.
Step 3 - Layout and Design
Once the site is ready for final review, you will be able to review each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is revised completely.
4.) WRAPPING UP AND GOING LIVE
Once the site is ready to go live, all unnecessary plugins, pages, images and backend files will be removed. The new site will be backed up and saved locally.
Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you. Though your logins and passwords will be saved locally, please save all logins for your records as well. Upon completion, you will receive a link to our ” moving forward” process where you will receive tips and tricks on marketing your new website and also information on our Hosting/ Maintenance/Security plans which we highly recommend for all of our clients.
