PROCESS

STEP 1 :
Project Scope

We will set an initial zoom call to discuss your objectives for your website.
We frame your overall brand identity, values and goals.
We discuss the number of pages that we will include in your website and any particular function required : contact form, membership, online courses, webinars, or online store.
We discuss the best hosting solution for your project,  comparing Webflow versus Shopify, WordPress or Squarespace.

Step 2 :
Proposal

Based on our initial discussion, I will send you a detailed project proposal document that includes everything you will receive as part of your website project: price, timeline, the number of pages, specific branding components to be included like a logo or colour palette.
Each bespoke website include full on-page SEO.

Step 3 :
Content Planning

We will define all strategic elements for your website content: competition inspiration and analysis, content strategy for text, illustrations and pictures, list of existing or newly required branding components and guidelines.
I will advise you on where to buy your domain and choose your business email platform. I guide you on solutions to analytics and legal policy for your website.

Step 4 :
Website Design

You will validate your future design's look and feel, starting with style tiles, before moving on to complete page mockups and live prototypes.
I use Figma to design all initial mock-ups.
I design each project bespoke and tailored to your needs.
Each validation phase will be accompanied by a 1:1 Zoom meeting to ensure the best communication flow.

Step 5 :
Website Development

I will build your bespoke website on Webflow or Shopify, depending on your functional needs, providing you with some reliable and fast content management and e-commerce solutions, that are easy to maintain and update.
I’m a fully qualified front-end developer using best coding practices in HTML5, CSS/JSS and modern JavaScript, including modern animation libraries such a GSAP.
I will answer all your technical queries in simple language as part of the design process.

Step 6 :
Project Delivery

Final validation happens after the technical performance and SEO testing.
Hand-over will include dedicated training and 1:1 support calls.
As one of my clients, you will then access priority status and preferential rates for all updates or enhancements that you wish to bring to your website in the future.
