The turnaround time is three week’s so it’s important that you are available and respond in a timely manner throughout the process
#1: Defining Your Vision & Content Collection
Congrats on deciding to invest on making your brand and website dreams a reality! To get started you will complete a questionnaire that will help me step into your shoes and learn everything; from your ideal client, your goals, to the brands/websites that inspire you. This questionnaire along with you Pinterest inspiration board that will set the stage for the emotions, colors, style, and feel your brand will represent. I will not simply be a designer you hire, but a partner who’s invested in your business and is dedicated to showing how amazing your services are! Once you finish the questionnaire we will hop on a call to make sure we are both on the same page regarding the direction we will be taking your brand.
During this pre-website creation phase I will need you to provide me with all your website content (ex. About, services, portfolio, etc…). I will also need you to send me any images that you want on your site (please only send licensed images that you’ve purchased or downloaded for free). If you plan to have images of yourself on your new site then make sure you have those ready or coordinate a photo shoot with a local photographer (please have them ready before or on the week we start on your website).
After our call I will go straight to crafting your mood-board! A mood board is a collection of images that will help you better understand and communicate your brand visually. This mood board will serve as the inspiration behind your logo design, websites style, the color palette, and font styles.
#3: Branding Board Elements
The centerpiece for your branding board and brand identity is your logo so it only makes sense to start here. I will be sketching out different versions of what will become your custom logo and provide you with three designs to choose from (2 rounds of revisions on your chosen concept). Once you fall in love with the final design we will be moving to the color palette selection! I will then create the other crucial elements to your brand identity like the alternative logo, fonts, favicon, graphic elements, etc..
#4: Dream Site Creation Phase
While you are busy focusing on the parts of your business you enjoy, I will be busy over at Squarespace designing your new on brand website! From signing you up with a Squarespace website to installing Google analytics, your custom website will be ready in no time. (2 rounds of revisions) .
#5: Launch Day!
The day is upon us! Yes, launch day! I will make sure your website is ready on time and is everything you wished, need, want, and more. I want you to feel confident not only about the way your website looks but the way it operates as well, I will provide you with a complementary 1 hr live website back-end tutorial. I will also deliver all branding identity elements (PNG, AI, and EPS form) via Google Drive. All that is left to do at this point is showcase your new site and let it do all the talking!
