Getting Started

Here’s an overview of what we need and a process overview to
help guide you along before we begin!

1) What I need to get started

Your Logo

PDF, EPS or high res JPEG or PNG if possible.

Content

Page content and any updated verbiage/information for the site.

Images & Pictures

Current and/or new images and pictures you’d like to use on the new site.

Style Guide

Brand style guide, colors or any specific design requirements.

Hosting Credentials

Your hosting account login and domain access if different.

Hosting Company

I highly reommend Siteground.com if you need a hosting plan.

2) Sharing is caring

Google Drive is an awesome platform for communication and project management. We’ll be using this to send messages, share files and track progress during the process. This will help alleviate content and images being lost in long email threads. If you have Gmail then open Drive, create a folder and give it a project name “yoursite.com”, right click > share > hello@wedreamdesign.com

We’ll go over how to populate it and keep things tight and easy to content communicate.

If you don’t have Gmail then we’ll find another option to work with like Dropbox, etc.

3) The design process

Designing a website, no matter how big or small, is an extensive process.. To better help you understand what to expect during the design and development, I’ve outlined my process into 3 steps:

1. Layout & design

Part of designing a site is in the planning and layout stage of the process. We’ll create the sitemap (Page/Menu hierarchy) for approval first, then I’ll design the home page and sub-pages for approval.

2. Development

Once the site layout and design is approved, I’ll move forward with designing all site pages and implementing all functionality and plugins. We’ll make sure your site looks great and functions nicely across all devices and web browsers before moving to the final step.

3. Edits & Revisions

Once the site is ready for final review, you’ll be able to review each page and we can make detailed revisions getting the site ready for launch. We ask that you please review ALL pages to make sure all spelling, grammar, addresses and information are correct/current before going live.
