Once you've submitted your design enquiry, I'll get in touch to arrange a meeting with you or a phone call to discuss your project in more detail. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other, and for me to get a better understanding of your business and needs for the website. Meanwhile you'll be able to ask me any questions you have too!
After our call, I'll send you my contract and deposit invoice so that we can schedule in a date to get started on your project.
Preparation & client homework
Once the project is scheduled in, I'll send over your Welcome Pack, which includes all the details you need to get ready and prepare for your website design! This will include gathering text, images and content, and filling out my questionnaire with more in-depth details about the pages and features you'll need, as well as some more info on your target customers, brand USP and preferences.
Template selectioN & website set up
On the first day of the project, I will send over a selection of Squarespace templates that I will have analysed and handpicked for you based on your client homework. You'll be able to browse through the demo websites and ask me any questions you have about the capabilities before we select one that is suitable for you. Once we have done this, you probably won't hear from me for a few days! I'll be setting up the website and designing your pages as a first draft.
Feedback - design - feedback - design
Once I have completed a 'first draft' of the website, I will send you an invite via Squarespace to come in and view the work I have done so far. At this point, you will be prompted to create your Squarespace account (if you haven't got one already) so that you can access the site. You can then feedback to me about how the website is looking, and any edits you would like me to complete. We will go through these feedback loops several times to perfect the design.
domain connection & Launch!
Once you're happy with the website, I will connect your domain to the new website and show you how to upgrade your Squarespace plan from a Trial to a paid plan, which will automatically publish your website so that people can see the brand new design! If you've chosen my Premium package, I will also supply you with a graphic or two to share on social media about the launch as well.
Handover & tutorials
But don't worry - I won't be leaving you just yet. Once the final payment is made, I will be sending you a Guide and video tutorials (including a personal tour of the back-end of your website) so that you'll be able to make any edits you need in the future and have complete control over your new home on the web!
