Getting Started

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

What I need to get started

Your Logo

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

Hosting Credentials

Your hosting account login and/or Cpanel username and password.

Wordpress Login

An administrator login to your current WordPress site. (if this is a redesign of the WordPress site)

Images & Pictures

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



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

Style Guide

Brand style guide, colors or any specific design requirements.

Google Drive

Google Drive is an online file sharing platform that you can use to share your files with me. I will set up a folder for the project and share the folder with you via email. You can upload all images and files there.

My Design Process

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

01. layout & design

A large and time consuming part of designing a website is the planning and layout stage. I’ll create the sitemap (page/menu hierarchy) of the website for approval first, then I’ll design the home page and a sub page for approval.

02. build & develop

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

03. edits & revisions

In this phase, you’ll be able to review each page and we can make detailed edits until the site is ready for launch. From the design to the wording, you’ll be able to let me know any changes you want me to make before the site goes live.

Wrapping Up & Going Live

Once the site is ready to go live, all unnecessary plugins, pages, images and backend files will be removed. The new site will be backed up and saved locally, should it ever need restored. Once live, it may take between 24-48 hours for the new site to pull up on some devices. Your browser may need to be refreshed in order to see the new site and though most will see the new site fairly quickly after the launch.

Your website logins and all credentials will be sent to you via email. Though your logins and passwords will be saved by me locally, please save all your logins for your records as well! Upon completion, you’ll receive a link to my Moving Forward page where you’ll receive tips and tricks on what to do with your new website and also information on our Maintenance/Security Plan which I highly recommend for all my clients.
