C R E A T I V E ∙ I N T U I T I V E ∙ Q U A L I T Y
We’re going to talk about who you are, what you do, how you do it. We want to know what sets you apart, who your clients are and what keeps them coming back. We’ll also discuss your business goals and how we can help you achieve them. We’ll talk specifics about logos, websites, social media, blogs, merchandise, packaging, displays, etc. We’ll send your quote and projected timeline within 3 days of our meeting. Once you’ve reviewed and approved the quote, we’re ready to move forward!
After our initial discussion, you will provide us your brand elements, such as logo/wordmark, colours, font palette, a photographic/graphic style, as well as examples of other promotional materials you may have, such as business cards, stationery, brochures, posters, etc. You’ll be assigned a assistant to help you prepare and finalize your website content before the design phase. The process is much more efficient if we have a good idea of the amount and kind of content we’re working with!
With the materials provided and based on what we’ve discussed, we’ll work on the design and layout of your website. Within 7 days, the first proof will be sent to you with an outline explaining the look, feel and layout. We look forward to our client’s feedback and welcome suggestions regarding any aspect of the design! When you are in love with the design and layout of your website, you’ll give us your final design approval. Time to get started on the development of your beautiful, new website!
The basic structure of your website will be available for online testing between 2-6 weeks after design approval (depending on the scope of the project). You will be able to use the website just like any other! The test website will be set up privately either on our own server or with your hosting account of choice, which means that the site is not visible to the public and the link will only be available to you. This process gives us the opportunity to catch any glitches or make any changes required before we go live.
The Money, Honey
After our initial consultation and quote approval, we will send you a contract and invoice with a payment schedule. Your first payment is required to book your spot in our calendar! This retainer covers project plan development, brand element assessment and the design of your website. Your final payment will be required after the site has been developed and tested, and we’ve prepared the site to go-live readiness. Upon receipt of that payment, your site will be transferred over to you and launched!
Press the launch button, pop the cork and pour the champagne! You’re live, baby!
COLLABORATIVE ∙ THOROUGH ∙ TRANSPARENT
How We Work
From start to finish, we use hands-on, collaborative and transparent work processes.
To enable a fluid workflow and keep projects on track, at the outset of each project we prepare our schedule and assign tasks to each member of our combined team. This gives us a general overview of the work to be done, a clear picture of who is responsible for which task and helps maximize productivity while minimizing delays.
During our creative period, we use worksheets, our background and education in our fields, current research and a healthy dose of gut instinct to deliver your website vision in a fully fleshed-out form. Once we’ve got things perfected and finalized, we start building! The final step of all our projects is the wrap-up interview, where we ask for feedback on the quality of work, the experience we provided, what services or products you’d like to see from us in the future and what’s next on your horizon!
