Pre-design Phase The first step after you get in touch is to have a brief chat via phone/Skype. We'll talk about your project, any requirements, desired outcomes and goals. Once we're done I'll send over a project proposal/contract, outlining all the details. As soon as I've received your approval and you've paid the initial deposit to lock in your project, we are ready to get started. In order to hit our 2-week deadline there's some client homework needs to be completed. This includes creating a Pinterest inspiration board, completing a questionnaire, compiling content and sending your logins for different third-party integrations that you'd like worked into their website.
Design & Build Phase (Week 1) On Monday of week 1 we'll have a brief call going over your Pinterest board, questionnaire answers and content. Taking your target audience, as well as your own preferences into consideration I will then craft a site that represents your studio perfectly and that lets clients navigate your content with ease. I do this by sketching wireframes, fine tuning layouts, adjusting typographic treatment and organising website content.
Feedback & Finishing Touches Phase (Week 2) On Monday of week 2 I'll provide you with a link to the live website. The site is only live on a Webflow staging domain, and not connected to your own domain, so only you are able to see it. You then have the opportunity to give feedback on the design and functionality of the site and request edits. I don't limit the number of revisions you can have – just remember our launch date is Friday of week 2. I will use this week to make any necessary design changes and connect any third party integrations.
Launch On Friday of week 2 we're ready to launch! I'll record an individual training lesson, showing you how to update and maintain your brand new studio site. As soon as you've initiated the remaining project payment, I attach your website to your custom domain and transfer site ownership over to you. Your site is now live!
"We were blessed to work with Laura. She was able to bring our ideas to a live website. She was great with advising on what would be best for our site's users experience. I respect her advice and would love to work with her in the future."
