About your project

Discovery Phone Call

A phone conversation to learn about you, your business and your goals for the project.

Conduct Research

I take the time to learn about your industry. 

Sketch Out Ideas

I create different concepts and sketch out as many ideas as possible, choosing the ones which suit your needs the most.

Create Variations

I take the concepts and flesh them out.

Present concepts for feedback

You will see these design concepts and explain the rationale behind each concept and why they would be successful. You then provide me with your feedback and what you feel resonates best with your needs. I execute the necessary revisions to develop the website. 

Deliver and launch

Once everything is approved, I test your website on various devices and then publish it. Now your website is ready and can be shown to really turn heads.
