THE MASTER PLAN
FIRST, WE SCHEDULE A ONE-ON-ONE CONSULTATION.
Our initial conversation will be done via Phone, FaceTime, Skype, or in person if you prefer! This is when yo'u’ll brief me on your brand and business, design references, and personal goals. During this initial consultation, we will also discuss pricing and timeline. Next we’ll talk about payment. I require 50% payment upfront for social media programs and packages, unless we mutually decide on an hourly or monthly rate. I accept payments via Bank Transfer, check, Venmo, and cash. Once our initial communication is complete, we’ll decide whether we’d like to move forward!
NEXT, WE DIVE DEEP (CREATIVELY SPEAKING).
During the next portion of time, you will be working on completing the homework needed before the design begins. Usually this just consists of gathering any necessary assets - such as photos you’d like to use, inspiration/mood boards, pre-written copy, etc., and answering a few written questions. We will be finalizing components of your brand identity - niche, audience, and purpose. I will also conduct a comprehensive website and social media audit. Any areas of conflict will be addressed at this time, and we will tackle the improvements together.
YOUR BRAND EXPLORATION!
This is where the fun begins. After you have submitted your CREATIVE DEEP DIVE (previous step), the brand exploration begins. For your brand identity, I’ll start by submitting a .PDF with any logo concepts/design elements/etc. that we’ll chat about - and you’ll decide which of these accurately reflect your gorgeous new brand identity. Here, we also decide on your Color Palette, and any other assets you’ll need: Business Cards, Stationary, and additional Branding.
After we’ve tackled your logo, color palette, and have worked out all of the visual kinks of your brand, I’ll roll up my sleeves and get to work. At this stage, my primary focus is presenting you with not only a stunning website that is beautiful to look at, but one that is modern, clean, clear, and extremely easy to use. Giving your customers, fans, and followers a comprehensive and aesthetically pleasing user experience will keep them coming back for more. If we’re specifically working on social media, I’ll be creating a week-long lineup of posts (complete with image, caption copy, hastags, etc.).
THEN COMES THE DESIGN PROCESS...
Once we have secured exactly how you want your website media to look, we’ll tackle exactly how we want the website to feel. Here is where I’ll animate the design and make your website come to life. I will work on the back end development of your website to ensure that it functions quickly and correctly, with all of the appropriate plug-ins and tools need to keep you in a state of growth when it comes to happy clients and customers. Typically, we allow 1-2 weeks for this process, to establish a solid design that looks and feels like you.
THEN WE DEVELOP.
Welcome to the post-approval process. Here, we get your new websit, social media, and branding live so you can begin sharing your beautiful message with the world.
NEXT, WE GO LIVE!
Now that your site and/or social media page are live, we will decide on (and I’ll create) any Launch Assets you’ll need - so that you can tell everyone you know that your new website/blog/other is now live. These assets might include Social Media banners, Custom Blog Templates, an Email Newsletter, and Social Media Posts.
