How I Can Help You
Before you can make your first sale, you have to know what to sell. Understanding your users, their problems and unmet needs and desires, unlocks your ability to determine the best solution and create it for them. I can help you understand your users, the way they make decisions, and how to capitalize on those behaviors.
Your website is the electronic window into your business; make sure that window shows off your best wares. I can handle your design, coding the design in HTML5 and CSS3 , and, if you desire, developing and integrating templates into a content management system. To ensure the site is always ready to serve, I also develop responsive websites for use on phones and tablets.
Graphics & Print
While the majority of my work focuses on web design, I love designing for print as well. I can help you with business cards, flyers, brochures, advertisements, and stationery.
Logo & Branding
Logos, color specifications, typography and the complete branding package. If you’re not happy with MS Publisher’s selection of templates, it’s definitely time that we talk. A professional looking brand is priceless if you want to be perceived as a legitimate company.
1: Research & Plan
Before anything else, I need to know about you and your business. If you’re going to trust me to do what’s best for you design-wise, we’ll have to get to know each other first. I’m going to ask a lot of questions and expect a lot of answers. I’ve got to figure out the best way to capture your audience, and no one knows your business like you.
The answers you give me will inform my design decisions throughout the process. Your goals, hopes, and aspirations for this project should be clear before we move on so I can best work toward those goals as well.
2: Design & Refine
With the knowledge you’ve shared with me, I can begin the process of applying that knowledge to your brand’s visual identity. I’ll create style guides to help maintain consistency throughout the project, as well as drafts and prototypes of your project’s design. We’ll review these together and decide what moves on to development.
By the end of this stage, you should have a clearly defined design direction for your project and a vision of what it will look like when completed.
3: Develop & Test
Now that the design direction is finalized, it’s time to make it functional. I’ll convert the visual prototypes into functional drafts as I develop the code to make it work.
Once the development efforts are complete, I’ll do a thorough testing of the project to ensure it works as planned and desired. At the end of this stage, your project should be ready to launch.
4: Launch & Support
Now that everything is complete and ready for launch, the last step is the most important one. Now I walk you through the project, to ensure you understand how things work. A great tool is useless if you don’t know how to use it; I’ll make sure you’re well trained.
Since this project went so well, we’ll also discuss your future plans and any anticipated needs. I see myself as your design partner and want to support your needs even after the initial project is finished.
