The Process

I believe that web design, when done correctly, produces an inclusive and elegant result. I have a simple and highly effective staged process I follow with every project tailored respectfully to its scope; a series of five phases that together, address the core fundamentals of creating unique, stylish and usable designs for the web. While the end deliverable is ultimately “web design”, it is the process in which gets us to a successful launch of a design that makes us both unique and highly effective.

I work closely with clients to create unique, stylish and usable designs for the web. I believe information and communication is essential while maintaining elegant simplicity. I have a simple and highly effective four stage process we follow with every project tailored respectfully to its scope.

  1. Creative Strategy & Discovery
  2. Information architecture
  3. User Interface Design
  4. Front-End Development
  5. Back-End Development/Integration

Discovery

My objective is to connect with an organization in an effort to understand internal processes, audience demographics and business objectives in an effort to translate that into a creative strategy.

Information

Once I understand an organization and its constituents, I begin to fully architect the user-experience. I work to organize the universe of content, content types, content hierarchies and the relationships between these facets of the organization and its constituents.

Visual

At this point I wireframe the site based on the information architecture that was finalized. This is not a “web design”, perse, it’s to let me ensure that all pages are displaying the correct functionality and content. Once this is signed off, I move on to the design phase.

I design websites that stand out among the crowd. I ensure the best presentation through elegant designs geared specifically towards your industry and audience.

Technical

I believe that the code is as fundamentally important and thus should be as clean, and efficient as the front facing visual aesthetic.

Back-End

Whether collaborating on a custom built system or extending a third-party system, I have extensive experience ensuring a successful integrated and customized solution.
