Would you like to know what you can expect from working with me? Then read on! I have documented my process just for you. Also, I love lists and staying organized, so I had to do that with my process.
The design process begins with getting to know you and your business, what you’re looking for in a website or design. Your input here is critical, getting to know your style well will help me create the best product possible for you.
After I have received the completed questionnaire from you, I can draw up a proposal for you which outlines the project cost, what is included and what to expect. 50% of the estimated project cost is required up-front to start work.
This is the fun part. It’s where I gather some inspiration, make myself familiar with your style by searching for designs and images to draw inspiration. Then comes the master creation board I use constantly throughout the design process. If you would like, you are welcome to view this master creation board to ensure I’m on the right track. This phase might also include some research into your industry and target market.
Once I have some ideas, I start laying them all out, I organize the thoughts, needs and wants of my client and my design ideas to give a clear direction for the project. Whether it’s a website map, layouts for a website or print design or a logo.
This is the good part. I get to choose what I think are the best ideas and get after the actual design. When my creative juices dry up I try to take a break and do something entirely different to shut off my brain. Sometimes I have to step away from a project for the day and when I come back to it the next day inspiration has returned and I see everything in a new light!
Once I’m happy with the design I’ll get your feedback. I will send a test link for a website or a PDF for print/logo design. This is where you come in and look everything over, mull, contemplate, stare… then you decide on any changes, additions, edits or a new direction for the design. You tell me all about your feels on the design and we work to get it hammered out to produce your ideal final product.
I revise the project based on your feedback, this process can at times take the longest as we will be communicating a lot on the changes.
Once your project is complete I’ll send you an invoice. Upon payment the files/website will be released into your care. Don’t worry, I won’t leave you hanging. If you have questions or need additional help you can always contact me.
