  • Submission to Search Engines
  • Design of other branding assets such as logos
  • Copywriting 

Development Process

My structured approach to the web design process helps ensure everyone knows what to expect each step of the way. This process also helps keep us on schedule and on budget.

Goal Setting & Strategy Session

We will have an initial meeting to go over your goals and ideas for the site. This meeting should include other members of your team that will be involved with the development and/or maintenance of the website. Together we will create a set of design specifications and over-arching goals for the site that will serve as a roadmap for the design process. A Strategy Outline document will be provided outlining navigation, key pages, overall style of the website, and goals for the site.

Brand Kit Development

Before we get started on developing the visual elements of the design, I create a Brand Kit that includes logos and their variants, color palette, fonts, and basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) keywords. This process ensures that the website will remain in alignment with your overall branding strategy. The Brand Kit will be provided to you as a PDF for reference for other projects and marketing activities.

Wireframing

Once we’ve agreed on the over-arching vision and strategy for the site, I will develop a basic wireframe of the new site showing the navigation, page layouts, etc. This will allow you to understand the overall look and feel of the site and make initial adjustments to the basic structure for the site.

Development

Once the wireframe is approved, I will begin designing the site on WordPress using the Divi Page Builder. Using a site developer like WordPress combined with the Divi Page Builder makes it easy for you to update the website however you need without needing to know any complicated coding or programs.

Final Approval & Training

Once the site is built, we’ll jump on a video call and I will walk you through the new website.

I will also do a basic training session with your team so they understand how to edit the website when needed. The session will be recorded so it can be referred to at any time.

Deployment – “Going Live”

Once you’ve approved the site, we’ll push it live at your BlueHost hosting account.

Testimonials

"Pepper was responsive, patient, and she solved a problem that had been slowing me down for months—all in less than two hours. What a tremendous relief! I wish I had contacted her sooner. I will continue to seek out her support in my small business and would recommend her without reservation to others."

Holly S., Owner @ Poetry Forge

"I've worked with Pepper Makepeace on several projects for several different clients and I've been impressed every step of the way. Working with multiple clients means I need a team member who values communication and collaboration. Pepper's ability to distill the tech world, and its constantly evolving elements, into useful and pertinent information is one of her most valuable traits. Turn around on design elements has always been quick and on time with any adjustments easy to discuss. I would highly recommend working with Pepper, especially if you're ready to have a partner to build your web presence. "
