IDEA & PLAN

Its Important to know what I want and have a clear plan before I start on any project. to do this I get a clear picture of what you want achieve. With the big problems reaching this goal outlined and dissected i go pen to paper with setting up a proposal, wireframes and list of deliverables for the project. After setting up a meeting to go over the proposal and iron out the fine details, im ready to start on orginizing the information and design work for the project.

DESIGN & CONTENT

Orginizing information architecture is the first thing i do when creating a new design. With the strong plan and clear path I start the design and layout for the project. Working with all the goals for the project in mind I bring form and function together to create something that looks and performs good while creating a good experience for the user. Substance is the most important thing, but making it enjoyable is key.

DEVELOP & DELIVER

With our project planned out and all the assets in place I begin to code. I start from top to bottom adding each element as i go down. I prefer to write all the HTML and place all the content before I start on the CSS. After making sure everything is in place, and cross testing the website on multiple browsers we are ready to launch. I have a great time going through each proccess of building websites as each is as important as the next.
