I understand that there are many questions you might have before your decide to work with me. The list of Q&A below might have some answers for you and help you better understand how I work with my clients.

Web Design Related Questions

How long will it take you to finish my web site? It solely depends on the scope of the project. My rough timeline is 1-4 weeks for a basic HTML web site under 12 pages. 5-8 weeks for a basic e-commerce web site 9-20 weeks for a complete e-commerce web site with an interface (admin section) for you to manage the web site on your own.

What items do I need to provide for you to start my web site design? I would like you to fill out a form of questions for, so I can better understand your business and your goal. Color schemes that you might like. A list of web sites that you like and dislike plus the reasons why. Photos of your product or services if you already have them. Content of the web site and your company logo if you have one for me to get started with the design.

The first concept design will be presented to you within the first 10 business days after we received the sign off of the project outline.

What web design software do you use? I like to use the appropriate software for each job. I commonly use Notpad++, Komodo Edit, Fireworks, Photoshop and Illustrator.

What web programming services do you provide and utilize? I provide design consultation, information architecture, web site graphic design, content management, CSS, XHTML development.

I also develop web sites in a variety of languages depend on the needs of a web site: ASP, JSP, PHP, SQL, .net.

What do you feel about full FLASH web site? I strive to make sure every web site I design is search engine optimized and search engine friendly. FLASH based web site could be cool, but it will be difficult for end user to find them on the search engine unless major marketing and optimization is applied. But the content is not searchable. Unless you are in the entertainment business, I do not recommend building a full FLASH web site. But some FLASH animation within the site will give motion and visual interest when used wisely.

How many concepts will see for my web site? During the concept design phase, I will supply one (1) design concept to build from. This is designed after extensive research of your industry, competitor, and based on the information you provide me to ensure the direction I am taking is the right one. From this initial concept design/layout, you will have the opportunity to revise several times.
