are three stages to our Web Design Process: The
We will first confer with you to discover your needs. During
which time, we will determine the amount of pages your new site
will require. We will need to consider your target audience,
and determine who it is exactly you are trying to provide product
or service to. We will need to discuss whether you will be providing
copy and/or imagery or if we will be providing for you. Once
these and other items are agreed upon, SG Design will provide
you with a prospective flowchart design - based on our discussion
- for your approval.
It is of great importance that you inform us of your budgetary
requirements. Without knowing what level of service you are seeking,
it is impossible for us to quote any project, be it web or otherwise.
Of course we can meet any realistic budget but, for example,
if you are seeking a $50,000 full blown e-commerce website and
only have a budget of $5,000, we will let you know that in order
for your vision to become a reality, we would require a bit more
flexibility on your part. We would also suggest in this instance
that your level of service may be a bit too high given your current
investment abilities. We will always negotiate to gain your confidence
After we have completed the Discussion Stage, SG Design will
begin the design process. We will create *two
or three sample Graphical User Interface designs (GUI) of what
we have translated your vision to be. The GUI's will encompass
the ideas of our discussion including the formulation of an attractive
USP (Unique Selling Proposition) or Tag Line.
Once you have selected the model you like the best, up to two
realistic revisions will be granted. Revisions may include a
font style substitution or color change throughout, or other
not subtractive alterations. We will complete the necessary scans
and/or color corrections if required for your imagery, insert
the copy you have provided to us in digital format, submit all
for your approval and move on to the final stage.
During the Initial Design Stage, you will be able to view progress
over time via a temporary sub-site within the SG Design Group
server hierarchy. Any progress or changes made to your new site
will be viewable to you at any time. All changes will be completed
and uploaded in real time.
The number of GUI designs may vary depending on your budget.
The design process will conclude with the approval and/or revision
of your selected GUI after all revisions, if required, have been
completed. Upon approval, we will complete the secondary pages
and sublinks placing appropriate copy and imagery where necessary.
Your new website will be registered with Register.com or Network
Solutions who will reserve your chosen domain name, and with
an ISP (Internet Service Provider) or Host of your choice, or
we provde hosting for you. We will also register your site with
the ten major search engines - Yahoo!, Google, AltaVista, Netscape,
AOL, HotBot, Lycos, Webcrawler, Infoseek and MSN - utilizing
the Meta Tags we have placed in the HTML.
We have a firm grasp on search engine technologies and have achieved
number one placement for some of our client's sites. Although
there are no guarantees, we will do our best to achieve high
placement for your new website within the search engines.
At SG Design, we harness our knowledge and experience to provide
our clients with stunning, strategic websites. Images that download
swiftly, targeted messages aimed at the bottom line, and extreme
attention to the finest details are imperative in today's saturated
market. We know that your online presence is as important to
you as the image you wish to convey.
