web design process
Our process. We wish to provide you with the best professional service we can at an affordable price.
Before we meet you should determine what you wish your site to accomplish. Will it be a site to promote your business or one for friends and family to see what’s happening in your life? Will your site be multilingual, require a shopping cart, a database? The most important part of your web site is content. Only you know what content your audience wishes. If you wish we can make suggestions as to what we believe your content should include and how to look at other sites with the same type of content, but the final decision will always be yours.
Before we meet we will also send you a set of questions which will help us determine an approximate cost for your site based on what you need. Depending on your answers this may require additional follow-up.
Initial meeting. This meeting is to provide a preliminary design for your content. Depending on how complex your design is it is possible that this design can be done via telephone or email. It is expected that if you wish to use your own images that you have them at this time. We will also discuss colors for your web site during this meeting for background, text, and links. We will provide a time estimate to the completion of the site at this time unless the site is complex or more information is required.
Site design. We will then start the actual design aspect. We will start with the homepage and the general layout of the site. We keep a working site available so that you can keep up with the design process at every stage. This allows you to see the design as it takes place and make comments on it.
Client approval. After the web site design is complete and functioning, you will be responsible for the final proof of the site. Once this is complete, the site will be uploaded to your ISP or server, and tested for functionality.
Maintenance and updates. Once the site is online and operational, there still may be a need for periodic updates. These services are generally not included in our price and will be billed individually based on the time necessary to complete the tasks.
