Every new custom theme project begins with a live design interview (that lasts about 60-90 minutes).
Before the call, you are given a Design Questionnaire of about a dozen questions that helps you prepare to have a constructive meeting with us. The questionnaire covers all of the crucial design elements such as color scheme, branding, masthead, navigation, header, calls-to-action, site architecture, fonts, functionality, real estate specific components, and the footer
We also discuss your target audience, and consider their needs and expectations.
And finally we look for descriptions and definitions as to what the site should feel like; what emotions should it conjure?
Once we have gathered all this crucial information, we dedicate as much as 24 design hours into the development of a live, fully custom theme, ready for presentation to you. This whole first phase takes about 7 days.
We have got this process down so well, that our expectation is that the “first pass” turns out to be 75-80% the way there in terms of satisfying your vision. In fact every once in a while the client offers no feedback other than, “It’s perfect! don’t change a thing.”
Once the first pass at the theme is complete we meet with you for another live conversation. This time we have the working theme which we can instantly mold from “close” to “perfect.” Edits to theme are done “on-the-fly,” involving you intimately with the process.
For more complex designs, or if the design finishing requires more than a single appointment, subsequent meetings are scheduled to complete this phase.
Once the theme is agreed to be complete, we “Sign Off” and move into orientation, and training.
