You are reading this article to understand how we approach and handle web design projects after the client has agreed to proceed with a new web site design with us.
A typical web design project, with some medium level of complexity, completed correctly, can take between 80-120 hours.
We have devised an organised and efficient procedure that consists of 10 main steps (in total there are appx 35+ steps) to ensure that web projects are completed within a reasonable amount of time and that the client understands their responsibility in relation to the design process.
|Step 1||Request logo from the client||Client||1 day||We request a copy of the current logo in vector or transparent png format. If the client cannot provide a high res version, we will take the low res version and redraw it. If we have to redraw, please add 2 days. This can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org|
|Step 2||Request Site map from the client||Client||2 days||We request a list of the names of the pages they wish to have on their new site.|
