The steps below are the ones we’ll take during your project.
Before we even talk about your website, we learn about your business goals and where you’re headed. I’ll ask questions and get to the core of what your business needs are. This will set the stage for everything we do together to make your project a success.
Research & Discovery
With a firm understanding of the results you need, we get deep into the research phase of the project. The deliverable at this phase is a project blueprint that outlines the strategic roadmap and web design production plan to achieve your goals.
Once we have a good game plan, we draw up the outline. This will provide us with a blueprint for what it is we’re trying to communicate and achieve, and how to best structure the site to accomplish those goals.
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. Depending on the complexity of the site, your prototype may come with ZERO design elements – showing only a basic layout structure and functionality – or it may show different levels of design. Either way it will give you a great idea of the direction we’re headed.
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.
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. We stay in close contact as we design and build your website.

Why build your website on WordPress?
How long does it take to design and build a website?
The time it takes to produce a website depends on the size and complexity of your site and the quality of content that you have ready to go. A basic website typically takes around 4 weeks from beginning to end.
Do I need my own domain name and web hosting?
Yes, I can help you get this set up and I can work with your existing provider.
