I offer three primary services. Web Design, Logo Design and Photography. Ideally, I strive to achieve a synergy between those three components, so they all compliment each other. This can result in a robust and full featured package that brings your project to the next level. Also, I can provide just web design, logo design or photography as a stand alone service to meet your specific needs. Larger projects are generally bid while smaller jobs or ongoing work is charged hourly. Let’s talk and see what might be best for you and your project!
After using a variety of platforms and hand coding websites for years, I now work primarily in WordPress. WordPress has evolved in to a robust and flexible content management system that can accommodate any website from small to large, simple to complex. Using wordpress also cuts down on construction time in various ways as well as gives you the client the ability to manage your own website and content yourself.
Web Design Work Flow
Below is an example of how a complete webdesign package work flow can often proceed. Client feedback is welcome and sometimes required between certain stages. Some projects use a different format, depending on specific needs.
Project scope and goals are defined
and agreed upon. Contract signed,
deposit paid and project begins.
Sketches or wireframe mockup for basic layout.
Focus on ease of use, information hierarchy and
calls to action.
Photoshop mockup of website design.
Home page and sub page/s as needed.
Refining colors and layout elements.
Website construction begins. Home page,
main menu and sub pages added.
Content addition and formatting.
(Can be up to 50% or more of project time.)
Testing, review and finalizing.
Site launch and final tasks.
Brand your website or project with a simple, attractive and effective logo. I can re-work an existing logo, work with your ideas or start from scratch to create a fresh attractive logo. If a logo is needed along with your website project, the logo is focused upon first, so that the website can reflect the logo’s colors and feel. I strive to refine my skills in this area to push towards logos that achieve maximum impact with simple yet bold and elegant designs.
Logo Design Work Flow
Below is an example of how a logo design work flow can often proceed. Client feedback is welcome and sometimes required between certain stages. Some projects use a different format, depending on specific needs.
Brainstorming with the client, gathering feedback on not only the clients ideas and preferences, but also what their business or project stands for, what their goals are and and how they want to be represented publicly. Looking at my previous work or outside examples is beneficial to get a clear direction.
Quick hand drawn sketches are made, with the intent of iterating until 3 different solid directions are produced. These simple sketches are then produced in vector (digital) format and delivered for review.
Based on client feedback, 3 more mockups are produced.
Based on further client feedback, 3 more mockups are produced. At this point, this may be 3 variations on the same basic design.
The strongest design is further refined and finalized.
The final version is completed and delivers in several formats and sizes. I also deliver the work files.
I now offer a new service, photography. Photography can be a stand alone service, or the perfect compliment to your web site. Showcase your products with high end product photography. Or get quality photos of the exterior and interior of your business. I also enjoy outdoor action sports photography and intend to move further in to this field.
Photography work flow can vary depending on the subject or goals. Rough estimates can be given, and time is recorded hourly.
