What My Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from me, let my clients do the talking!
I contacted Erin for help with my portfolio website after years of trying to manage it on my own. I had a very clear idea what I wanted and Erin understood and executed it perfectly. She was available to answer all of my questions and took the time to train me on how to use the site after it was done. I recommend Evergreen Design Studio to anyone looking to professionalize their website.
Erin designed and built a website for my start-up accounting and tax business in Costa Rica – the important part as a non-techie person is to have a website that invites people to read and browse through and ultimately provides new client opportunities. That is what she did. My website has brought scores of unsolicited business and new clients. In fact, if you google my services, I am not only on the first page of google, but the first couple of listings. In the competitive climate of financial and accounting services, this has helped me realize many new clients. I recommend Erin and Evergreen Design to any of you who are looking for these kinds of results.
I needed a new website to reflect my new business, but only had a rough idea of what I wanted to project. Erin was recommended to me by an editor who also uses her services. She was a delight to work with. She skillfully listened to my concepts and helped organize the page and content flow, offering expert advice for SEO. Erin suggested fonts, logos and images to support my ideas that were original and spot on. Easy to work with, prompt in responses, and extremely creative. I highly recommend Evergreen's services!
Evergreen’s Website Design and Development Process
There are three basic stages to the website design and development process here at Evergreen Design Studio. They are: planning, building, and maintaining. Let’s elaborate on each stage, so you’ll know exactly what to expect when you buy a new website from me.
Stage 1: Planning
I’ll start off by asking you a lot of questions about the purpose of your website, the goals of your website, your target audience, and what type of content will be on the site. I’ll gather information about your business and competitors. I’ll research your industry, competition, and target market.
After I’ve gathered all the information and you’ve submitted all the content, I’ll create something called a sitemap. A sitemap is basically an outline of your site that will show the topics, subtopics, and will list any functionality needed. The sitemap acts as a guide for the site and is essential for developing a successful navigation system and for defining what technologies will be needed (e.g., interactive forms, a shop, etc.).
After you sign off on the sitemap, I’ll build wireframes for specific pages on your site. Wireframes in web design are like architectural plans in home construction. They’re not the final design, they won’t be pretty, but they will show what goes where and are essential to ensuring that the design serves the function of the site.
Stage 2: Building
After you’ve signed off on the wireframes, I’ll move on to designing the home page. Depending on what we agreed upon, you’ll get 1-3 versions to choose from and 2-4 rounds of edits. The home page is the most important page in the design because it will define the look for your entire site. After you sign off on the home page, I’ll move on to the subsequent pages while development begins.
Development is the part where we code the design, so that it works on the internet. Your site will be developed on a staging site which means you’ll be able to view your site live on the web without it being live on your URL (your domain). This allows us to release the website in its final form, so no one except us will see the building process.
Throughout the development process, we’ll be testing your site on various devices and platforms to ensure a consistent experience for users. After I receive your final approval, the site will go live! It’s officially launched!
Stage 3: Maintaining
Some of my web design packages include web maintenance for 3-6 months after the build because it is so important and I want to ensure a smooth transition. It’s important to understand that you need to care for your website after it’s been built. It’s like buying a car – you can’t just neglect it after you buy it or it will break eventually. You have to change the oil, rotate the tires. After your package expires, I offer web maintenance packages at reduced rates, so you can rest easy knowing someone is behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly and you can avoid any unexpected costly repairs.
