Jacksonville Web Design has established a hassle-free method of website production based on a series of stages that are presented online and signed off by the client before proceeding. ‘Content’ and ‘Design’ are separated into two production paths so that there are minimal delays. The steps we use to produce websites are as follows:
The client accepts package quote, agrees to Jacksonville Web Design’s Terms and Conditions and makes the initial 25% payment.
Jacksonville Web Design develops a design brief with the client, including proposed direction of the project, site structure and navigation options, and visual references (i.e. other websites) that may help explain the proposed visual direction. Other issues should also be discussed, such as existing style guides, corporate logos or policies (if appropriate).
The client delivers a content package including all images and text needed for the web site.
Jacksonville Web Design creates a progression of initial graphics for inspection. These will be presented on the Jacksonville Web Design development site at: http://clientname.Jacksonville-Web-Design.com/
The client checks the web graphics and shows associates and a sample target audience if appropriate. The client does not have to sign off on initial designs as further revisions can take place. We generally allow three stages of designs: the initial design and two refinement phases (if required).
