I started in design and digital after I owned a venue. I had a box of business cards and thought it would be easy to market to my customers. It was time to skill up. Assisting business to become digital is enormously rewarding. The internet has grown up and it is an exciting time. Now I spend my time designing and talking about cross channel marketing and how to build a digital funnel for the small business.
New school marketing
Websites on their own can struggle and it is important that businesses know how to use the tools out there to build communities. Email standards and Social conduct are all great topics to discuss with my clients as we devise a plan for new internal roles and digital. Keeping it real and challenging traditional roles can be a great start. Not having a budget is no excuse.
Understanding your business goals, brand and culture is very important in our process. We use a simple mind mapping sessions to help engage with your team. Calls to action and objectives are discussed and so are requirements and capabilities.
We will develop and workshop wireframes with you to demonstrate usability, information heirarchies and calls to action. All your pages will added here. This is bones of your website or application so there may be a few iterations to get it right.
Your Visual Concept
In the earlier stages of development we will present and refine your visual concept from sketches to finished art. Just the right color palette and typography will be selected for you.
After the sign-off on look and feel, functionality and capabilities of your website are completed, coding begins. Thorough testing cycles are incorporporated into this phase too.
Hello John, just wanted to thank you again for the fantastic job you did on my blog. What made you stand out from other web guys is that you were super personable and really seemed to care about my goals and intentions. You also have an uncanny ability to get the job done at super human speed. Your eye for what looks aesthetically right is amazing. It was great because I didn’t have to go back and have you change a bunch of things and waste a bunch of time. You got it dead on the first time.
