Website Design

Calgary Custom Website Design

Strategic and captivating web design.


Be proud to show off your business online. I combine designer aesthetics with strategy-based website layouts so you can share your message with the world. Your website leaves the first impression of your business and its services; therefore, it should be a good one.

Whether you require a new website or are ready to take your existing website to the next level, I will collaborate with you to make your vision a reality. Having a professionally designed website can help you stand out from the crowd while increasing your sales and conversions at the same time.

I build websites using the WordPress platform. At the end of each website project, I will give you a rundown on how your website is built so you can easily make changes and edits in the future. Should you not want to take on the website on your own in the future, I am available for ongoing website support at my hourly rate.

The Website Design Process

Please message me if you have any questions that are not listed here. 

Getting started

Let’s chat. Send me an emailand if needed, we can set up a quick phone call or a virtual meeting so that I can learn more about your business, your needs, and what you do. 

Once we decide that we are a good fit, I will send over a contract for you to sign. A 50% deposit will be required to lock in and schedule the project. 

Discovery

Next, I will ask you to do a little bit of homework by filling out a questionnaire that will give me a solid understanding of who you and your business are and what you need from your website. 

Planning

First, we will make sure that you have a domain, hosting, and SSL Certificate ready for your website.

Once that is set up, and I have gained access to the website, I will create an initial "Coming soon" landing page.

Afterward, I will go through all the information provided in the questionnaire and start putting together a strategic initial wireframe/sitemap. I will take into consideration your target market, competition, brand values, and so much more.

Once the wireframe/sitemap is approved, I'll start sending you some homework. The homework may include items such as copy for specific pages, images, gathering logos, and more.

Design phase 1

Once I have received all your assets and copy for the website, I design and develop the three most complex webpages and submit them for review. At this stage, you can provide feedback before I move forward onto the other pages.

Design phase 2

Once you are happy with the preview pages, I will work on building out the remainder of the website pages. I will ensure the website is fully responsive and functions well on desktop, tablet, and mobile browsers.

Once all the pages are done, I will give you another preview of the full website. At this point, we can make unlimited revisions to make sure the website is perfect before it goes live.

Launch

Before launch, I will complete a final site check to ensure everything is loading and working correctly. I will also set up Google Analytics and set up an SEO plug-in to help with your website search results.

Once you are 110% happy with the website, I will ask for the final payment. Now it's time to get excited as your brand new site is live!

Training

We will set up a Virtual meeting where I will walk you through your new website and show you how to add or change the content. I want you to feel confident using your new site and managing it on your own. 

I'll always be an email away should you have any questions or need some additional help.

FAQs

Please message me if you have any questions that are not listed here. 

How does the payment work?

After we chat and decide that we are a good match, you will need to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit to book your project and secure your spot. At the end of the process, you will need to pay the remaining 50% balance before the website launch. Payments can be made by e-transfer or cheque.

Do you build websites on other CMS platforms?

While I can build websites using other CMS platforms, I choose to work in WordPress solely. After spending several years working within WordPress, I have become very familiar with it and know how to use it in and out. I love WordPress for its versatility, ease of use, and the fact that it has no monthly fees. Other platforms such as Squarespace and WIX come with large monthly subscription fees and don’t provide WordPress's flexibility.

Where can I buy hosting, a domain, and SSL certificate?

I would recommend looking into Name Cheap and GoDaddy for hosting and domain. An SSL Certificate is also essential and will make your website more secure and trustworthy. A secure website will have the lock icon to the left of the URL. To accept payments of any kind, a website must have an SSL Certificate. I would recommend buying all three from the same place to make setting up the website a breeze.

Can you make an e-commerce website?

At this time, I am not offering an e-commerce website design. However, this may change in the future.

How long does this process take?

Single page websites take 4 weeks. Multi-page websites take 7 weeks.
