How does this workDESIGN PROCESS
The research and planning stage is arguably the most important phase of the design process, because what’s decided and mapped here sets the stage for the entire project. My main goal during this phase is to have a good understanding of your strategic goals, audience, and desired outcomes. At this stage, I will provide an analysis of all the information I gather, determination of required resources such as graphics, stock photography, typography, and hosting access or requirements. We will also go over payment terms, timelines, contract documentation, copyright ownership, and more. Once the client checks-off with the research and planning stage, I will proceed to the design stage.
The design process usually begins as a series of sketching & wireframing mock ups. My goal during this process is to create a purpose driven concept base on the clients desired goal and outcome. Once satisfied with a design concept, I will create a series of prototypes using one of many tools to present to the client. This is where the visual layout of your website begins to take place. Using the information from the planning stage, I will incorporate design elements such as a color palette, typography, icon elements, photography, and graphics. After a cycle of reviewing, tweaking and approving the mock-ups often takes place until both the client and the contractor agree and are satisfied with the design. This is the easiest time to make changes. Once the client signs-off on the final design, it’s coding time!
During the development phase, your website is brought to life. The process of turning a prototype into a functional website is different from project to project as I offer a wide range of website solutions. For custom made websites I use a combination of HTML5, CSS, JQuery, and PHP programing languages for markup, structuring, styling, and adding interactivity. This also a good time to integrate additional services such as SEO and Google Analytics to your website. Once completed, I will perform a full review to make sure everything is in working order and that nothing visually or functional was missed. At this point, your site is in a private testing server, and is ready to be moved to its permanent server. Once the client is satisfied and signs off, I can move to the final design stage.
The purpose of the launch phase is to prepare the website for public viewing. Because every server can have a different configuration, after transferring the website from the private server to the permanent server, I will perform one final review of the site. This final review is meant to polish and identify small details that might need a little improvement. Once the client signs-off on the project, and final payment arrangements are made, I will provide the client with source files and project documentation.

What is Responsive Design?
Responsive web design is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience - easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling - across a wide range of devices from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors.
The Most Advance Responsive Frameworks!
Foundation and Bootstrap Frameworks When designing a responsive website, I use only the most popular front-end frameworks for developing responsive mobile first projects on the web. The advantage of using these frameworks is that they are constantly being updated and improved by a large community of developers.
How important is having a logo?
Why do I need a logo for my business? Logo design is much more than a piece of clipart. A great logo is an expression of the company values, cultures, and people. A strong logo design should reflect your brand identity, establish a sense of trust, and stand out from the crowd. My Logo Design services range from one of a kind creations, to modification and customization of professional templates.
