How I work

Here’s my website design and development process.  
These ten tried and tested steps take us from ‘lets chat’ to ‘going live.’ 

Getting started

We meet over coffee in person or on Zoom to: 

  • See if we’re a good fit

  • Chat about how I’ll add value to your project

  • Talk (tentative) timing – when I could start your project 

Free 30-minute chat

Formal quote

After our chat and a look at my services page, you’ll have a pretty solid ballpark price for your project. 

Now you’ll receive a formal quote. If you’re happy to go ahead, push the ‘accept‘ button included in your quote. 

First invoice

You pay 50% of the project fee. Your project’s locked in for the time frame we agreed on in our initial chat.   

The ‘getting started’ email 

I’ll send a list of the essential things you need to give me. This list will reflect your specific project needs. But it usually includes:

  • Logo files and branding guides

  • Copy and keyword research 

  • High-quality images

NOTE: If you need help with any of these essential elements of a great website, I can recommend talented people.

The design & development process

You’ll receive a diagram of your website’s structure and hierarchy, showing all the pages and subpages and how they’re connected. 

The site map

The homepage design (for review)

I send you:

  • A preview link to view a working homepage design (desktop only at this stage)

  • A Loom video walkthrough explaining key features

  • An audit of your brand colours to ensure they help make your site accessible 

You give me feedback on the design, and we make any amendments.


NOTE: You can add comments directly in the preview site or the Loom video. We can also meet in person or via Zoom to chat through any changes. 

Full desktop design & build

I design and build all the pages based on your approved homepage design.
You receive a fresh preview link and another Loom walkthrough.


NOTE: We can schedule a Zoom meeting to review the site together if that’s the easiest way for you to give me feedback. 

Mobile/tablet design & build

I convert the approved desktop version of your site to mobile and tablet versions.

SEO descriptions, page titles and keyword setup

I add the essential SEO content that you’ve supplied.


NOTE: I add image descriptions/alt text to help make your site as accessible as possible.

Final checks and final invoice

You check all versions of your site, and I tweak anything that needs tweaking. You pay the remaining 50% of your project fee.  

Your site goes live!

If you’re happy to give me a testimonial, that would be grand. I’ll add your review to my site with a link to your business.
