My Process

I've built many websites.

I've refined the process I use to achieve successful outcomes for my clients.

Reflecting on my experience managing successful projects has helped me refine an efficient and effect design process that produces excellent results.  The steps below are the ones I’ll take during your project. We’ll need your input and feedback and cooperation along the way. Read through the steps below to find out what you should expect.  If you’re ready to go click the “Get Started” button at the bottom.

Step 1: The Brief

I’ll ask the right questions to uncover the truth about why you need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve. Some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable. In fact, if it doesn’t get a little awkward, then chances are I haven’t done my job.

Step 2: The Sitemap

Once I have all the information I need, I’ll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page very quickly about what it is we’re trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information. Here’s an example of one I baked earlier.

Step 3: The Prototype

Now instead of trying to tell you what I intend to build and hoping you understand my jargon, at this point I’ll build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how my solution will work. With no attention to design at this stage, it ain’t pretty, but it gets us close real quick. Here’s one I prepared earlier.

Step 4: The Design

The fun begins during the design stage because we get to play with the crayons and colouring pencils to bring your interactive prototype to life to match your brand identity. Here’s the same website fully designed.

Step 5: The Delivery

Finally, we go underground for a couple of weeks and make sure everything is plugged in and tested before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world.
