ANGELA'S WEB DESIGN PROCESS

CONSULTATION & QUOTE

You will have a consultation with Angela (via email, phone, Skype or in-person at a local Durango area coffee shop) that includes project objectives: Initial informal discussions – covering project objectives, technical aspects, logistics, timing and budget.

Formal meetings will take place to discuss your project in detail and clarify any technical issues including budget, timetable and corporate identity guidelines and creative goals.

After your meeting with the Angela a quote will be provided.

RESEARCH

Getting the right amount of details and having a clear understanding of a client’s vision and goals from the beginning is the most important factor when designing a new website or a redesign. Rounds of revisions, phases of work and testing will be conducted on an online test server. This is where the meter starts running as designers get paid for their thinking time as well as production time.

DEVELOPMENT

NOTE: Before Angela begins development she must receive a 50% deposit.

New Site Development

Angela creates new websites with a Content Management Systems (CMS) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_management_system) such as WordPress, Squarespace or Wix using a hosting provider such as GoDaddy, BlueHost or Network Solutions. These CMSs are managed by these companies which means they handled the back-end coding (HTML, PHP JQUARY & CSS). Once a theme is chosen by the client for the website Angela will make minor adjustments to the CSS style sheet to change the look (colors & fonts). She adds plugins to change/enhance functionality. No hand coding is needed with these type of sites and they are extremely user friendly and mobile ready.

Site Redesign Development

Angela redesigns existing sites in the same way by creating a new/beta site with a temporary domain. With existing websites, she does not work with the client’s existing web platform or hosting provider unless they already have a managed WordPress site hosted by GoDaddy, BlueHost or Network Solutions. Your new site is hosted and created either on your or her GoDaddy account. Once the new site has been approved the old website and hosting provider account is canceled (by the client).

REVIEW

Angela will email you a link to your beta site for review and you either approve the site to go live, or discuss changes you’d like to make.

Following your review and feedback, she amends the website as necessary and notifies you the changes have been made. Final approval is required before the site goes live.

GO LIVE & TESTING

“Beta Testing” review on websites takes place and final testing before launch of site. Following your final approval the site goes live.

FINAL REVISIONS & CHANGES

After testing up to two rounds of revisions and corrections are made. Final balance is invoiced.

HOSTING & DOMAIN TRANSFER

Once the new site has been approved, gone live, tested and final revisions made the old website and hosting provider account is canceled (by the client). The domain is then transferred to the new site.

NOTE:

A 50% deposit on all projects is required before any work will begin. Rest of balance is due before site goes and and domain is transferred.
After a company/person is vetted, all payments are processed through PayPal (can use credit cards as a guest in PayPal).
For regular clients you can request to be billed a monthly retainer.
