Getting Started

An overview of what I need to work on your project so you know exactly what to expect.

1) What I need to get started

Your Logo

In the format of high resolution JPEG or transparent PNG. If you have the source file in a format such as PDF, EPS, AI or SVG it’s even better.

Images & Pictures

Current or new images and pictures you’d like to use on your new website. If you don’t have any, don’t worry – my image stock is huge!

i

Page Content

Text for the website such as “about us”, product or service descriptions, contact information, pricing lists and anything else you want.

Style Guide

Brand style guide, colours or any other specific design requirements. It’s common for clients to send me a few websites they like too.

Domain & Hosting

If you already have your domain and/or hosting, I will need the logins to start working on your server or point the domain to mine. 

Wordpress Login

If the project is a redesign of your current WordPress website, I will need the login and password to your administrator user account.

2) The design process

Designing a website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process that can be overwhelming. To better help you understand what to expect during the design and development, I’ve outlined my process into 3 steps:

l

1) Layout and 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.

2) Development

Once the site layout and design is approved, I’ll move forward with the design of all website pages and implementing all functionality and plugins. I’ll make sure your site looks great and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers before moving to the final step.

3) Edits & 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 ready for launch. I ask that you please review ALL pages to make sure all spelling, grammar, addresses and information are correct before going live.

3) Wrapping Up & GOING LIVE!

Once the website is ready to go live, all unnecessary plugins, pages, images and back-end files will be removed. The new website will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need to be restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to pull up on some devices. Your browser may need to be refreshed in order to see the new website and though most will see the new website fairly quickly after the launch.

Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you via secure email ensuring the security of your passwords. Though your logins and passwords will be saved by me locally, PLEASE SAVE ALL LOGINS FOR YOUR RECORDS AS WELL.

Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to my Moving Forward page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website and also information on my Maintenance/Security Plan which I highly recommend for all my clients.
