About Me - - How I Work
I work with you - supporting the development of the initial spec, helping you along the way in every way that you wish, and completing the project with you in partnership.
Here is how we work together in ten simple steps
Step 1 -
Send me a description of any new project.
This can be anything from just a few words about what your client needs to a large corporate spec. I will help you with the questions and details to move it forward.
Step 2 -
I will reply to you on the same day with a ballpark estimate (well sometimes it gets done the next day).
Mark up my estimate! I will be happy to tell you how much other designers typically mark up my fees if you wish. I will also include a few questions that you can ask your client that will help me narrow down the range of the estimate.
Step 3 -
If you and your client like the estimate in principle,
ask your client any questions that I may have included (they will often have questions of their own) and let me know what they say.
Step 4 -
I will revise the estimate the same day,
with a more accurate quote (and possibly more questions).
Step 5 -
My quote will quickly become a site-map showing the functionality on every page.
It will not show how the pages will look, that will be your job of course (but I can help with advice or ideas about this if you wish). It will simply indicate what can be done (and by whom) on each page.
Step 6 -
If you decide to work with me,
then when you are ready, send me the graphic art and any page template(s) that you wish for me to use. If you have not worked with me before - I generally require a deposit at this point.
Step 7 -
I will build the phone app or website,
on one of my servers so that you can see it quickly grow,
using your artwork - and following your design template(s). The phone app or website will look exactly as you wish and it will meet the spec exactly.
Step 8 -
Watch it grow quickly,
show it to your client along the way only if you wish to.
Step 9 -
When it is finished and you are happy with it,
I will help publish the phone app or if it is a website then I will transfer it to your server or theirs (or you can leave it hosted on my server if you prefer).
Step 10 -
Lets get started!
