STAGES OF PRODUCTIONS

PRE-PRODUCTION

1 CONTACT ME

If you are interested in having your website done with me, fill the contact form below.
I will send you a questionnaire with a list of things to prepare for the content of the site.

2 RESEARCH

Spend some time looking at competitors and get a good idea of how you want to structure your website.
Make a list of all the pages (and main menu, sub-menu, secondary menu) and write down for each page the content and the images you wish to intergate.

3 GATHER CONTENT

The quality of the content and photos is extremely important.
Spend time gathering good images (your own or copyright free images) and writing some interesting content.
Once you have the content and the images and have created folders for each page, send them to me via http://www.wetransfer.com.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRODUCTION

1 TEMPLATE

Once I get all the material, we will discuss the ideal template together.
The choice of the template is not that important as they are flexible and we can change them at anytime.

2 PRODUCTION

I will then create an account for you and set up the pages, create a layout for each section, insert images into galleries, slideshows etc and customise the colour palette and typography.

3 FEEDBACK AND FINAL CHANGES

You will get the link to view the website and will be able to make a list of the changes you wish to have.
I will then, if possible (as the templates has its limitations), make the final amendments.

 

 

 

POST-PRODUCTION

1 DOMAIN NAME transfer

If you already have a domain name, you will need to give me the control panel details of your hosting company so I will direct the domain name to the Squarespace website. If you don’t have a domain name, I will show you how to get one at a competitive price.

2 TUTORIAL

You will receive a PDF with instructions on how to add new work, how to update news, exhibitions, etc. Squarespace also has video tutorials specific to many aspects of the production.

3 FUTURE MODIFICATIONS

If you wish to expand your website, add new pages or need help, I will be available to support your needs. Depending on the complexity of the query, I will charge between £30 to £45 an hour.

Portfolio / Business site: £10 a month + VAT

Online shop: £20 a month + VAT

The website will be designed using Squarespace, an online website builder. This method is very affordable and includes hosting, use of templates, SEO (to appears in search engine like Google), analytics (to be able to view visitors and their geographical location, the time they spent on your site, and the pages they visited etc).

I find this system to be the best on the market at the moment. Better than Wix as you can change the template once you put the content and save the database for a WordPress if you want to upgrade your website.
