Every project is unique. Understandably, how we tackle each project depends on whether it consists of updates, a redesign, or starting from scratch. Following is a generic guideline of what must be covered for most projects.
I. Getting to Know You It's important to understand where your strengths are and which information visitors care most about, so that those features can be pushed. What are your goals? Who is your audience? How do these come together? What are your preferred colors? What fonts would you like to use? This is the phase for questions.
II. Getting Organized All of this information is then put together. In this step we need to create a site infrastructure diagram to organize the flow and organization of your pages, so that a proper form of navigation can be designed. After this is taken care of, a basic sketch or wireframe of your hopepage and other subpages will be created
III. Time to Build I then take our site infrastructure and page sketches to create all of the pages, and implement your copy and other site content. We will revisit this stage many times during the course of this project, as ideas change and we try new solutions and designs.
IV. Feedback Loop Since my goal is to work as closely with you as possible throughout the entire process, I have a high transparency policy. When you log into this website, you will have the option to view the most recent stable version of your site, so that you can participate as actively as you wish by submitting comments directly through the site.
V. Finalization Once you are happy with the final product, we can move ahead, registering a domain name, choosing a hosting provider, and getting your site live. While it is called the 'Finalization' stage, it does not by any means need to be the end. Feel free to come back whenever you want any changes made!
