STEP ONE

Let's talk

Choose a time for us to have a short discovery call. We'll talk about your ideas, learn about what you do, and answer all your questions. Within 24 hours after our call, you’ll receive a detailed proposal, with the ability to click through to book.

STEP TWO

pre-project planning

Once you’ve signed the agreement and paid a deposit, your spot on our calendar is reserved. You’ll receive our Discovery questionnaire that dives into what you offer, who your clients are and much more. Before your project start date, we’ll have a Strategy Session to review your content and create a plan for your new website.

STEP THREE

Website design

We'll work through our 4 phase design process: inspiration & concepts; website structure & homepage design; interior page design; SEO, launch, & training. In between each phase, you’ll get a chance to provide feedback, either via email or through screenshare Zoom sessions.

STEP FOUR

post-project

After your website design is complete, we're still here for you. We include 30 days of support via email for any last minute questions, or to request additional video tutorials. We’re also happy to jump on a wrap-up video call, if you’d like.

"I've worked with Jess on many projects. The knowledge base, customer service, attention to detail, incredible design ethic, and professionalism has helped me to grow my business into an international brand."

Our process

With our Custom Website Design process, we work through 4 phases of our project. We take time to hear your thoughts in between, and do revisions as needed. We're available to hop on a screenshare session, to make sure we get everything just right.

01Inspiration & Concepts
