How it Works:

For each of our web design projects we initially discuss with you your needs and monthly hosting budget, then suggest which one of our established, reputable partners to use for the platform of your site. The “platform” is what powers your site (eg. WordPress, Bigcommerce, 3dcart, Shopify, etc.) but more importantly for you, it that is what gives you the ability to manage and update your site on your own. This is why we have carefully selected the parters with which we work, because they provide our clients with the best experience for managing their online business.

We then get to work creating a unique design to be fully implemented it into your chosen platform. You will be able to take advantage of all of the standard features of the platform and utilize the support system provided by the platform provider. You are not required to return to us for every update to your site or for every question or problem (unless you want to!)

We realize we have “designer” hours and you, as a store owner, may need help outside of those hours. That is why we work with these select reputable service providers so you have a widely-accessible technical support team, customer service telephone support, and many other support options our partners offer. You own your business, and we make it so that your website will be in yourname, under your control. We’re here to help, not hold your site hostage.

Schedule:

  • GETTING STARTED + FIRST PAYMENT
    50% of the project cost is due at the time of starting a project. After the contract is signed and returned, and the first payment is made, we can get started on designing.
  • DESIGN WORK + REVISIONS
    Clients are asked to complete our design questionnaire. Based upon this, design mockups will be created in Photoshop and presented to the client. Revisions may be requested, if needed.
  • SECOND PAYMENT
    After the overall design has been determined, we send an invoice for a 25% payment.
  • CODING + FINAL REVIEW
    The design is then programmed into HTML & CSS and loaded on a demo site, which the client is able to view live online. Any final edits are made, and the client is then invoiced for the remaining 25% balance.
  • FINAL PAYMENT + INSTALLATION
    Once the final payment is received, the new design is installed to the client’s hosting account or shopping cart and can be launched if the client is ready. Finalized design files for business cards, banners, or other graphics are also delivered at this time.
