    Overview

    The web design process contain the steps we need to take together, to deliver a website that meets your needs and aspirations.

    Initial Consultation Stage

    Next we will meet and discuss your web design requirements and talk about the opportunities a website could offer you. During this stage we will be finding out as much as possible about your business and the services you offer.

    This is also a chance to check out each other's vibe and see how we feel about working together.

    Proposal Stage

    Based on the information gathered during the initial consultation, you will receive a web development proposal. This proposal will include the following;

    • A summary of the web development project proposed.
    • A project timeline including a payment schedule.

    • A cost analysis showing a breakdown of the quoted price as a basis for finalising the scope of the project.
    • Other factors such as domain registration, hosting and maintenance.

    Agree & Start

    Once we have finalised the proposal between us you confirm your acceptance and pay an initial deposit to initiate the next stage
