Design magic that changes the world

Are you curious?

We've been transforming websites for over 20 years and these are some of the common questions clients have asked us about getting started, our process, payments, and website care.

I'm ready! How do I get started?

Website Worksheet

To start the process, fill out our website worksheet. We want to learn about your purpose, goals, and any challenges you're having with your existing website. 

Review

Our team will review your worksheet answers to see if there's a good fit. After that, we'll send you a follow-up email to schedule a morning call with the decision makers on your team.

Proposal

After that discussion, we'll provide a proposal that's specific to your goals, audience objectives, investment, timeline, etc. for your new website. Once you've accepted our proposal, we'll send you an invoice for an initial deposit to secure the project.

Onboarding

After we've received the deposit, we'll invite your team onto our project management tool, Basecamp. We'll use it for tracking conversations, to-dos, and overall delivery of the project.

Home Page Kick-off

Then we'll coordinate a kick-off call to collaborate on the Home page design for your new website. We'll review your worksheet answers and inspiration sites to determine art direction and content strategy that will achieve your goals.

How long does it take to build a website?

Website redesigns take a minimum of three to four months to complete. We usually spend two months on design and up to two months (based on complexity) for web development.

What’s your process for redesigning a website?

Glad you asked! Check out our website redesign process page for how we magic the magic happen.

How do we pay for the website?

For websites, we require a 15% to 25% deposit of the total budget that’s been allocated for your project. Once we receive this payment along with your signed project agreement, we’ll coordinate a kick-off call on Basecamp with your team.

Invoices are emailed on the 1st of during the estimate duration of your project as a monthly retainer. Payments are due within 30 days of receipt. We accept credit cards and checks.

On smaller projects like graphic design or logo design, we require a 50% deposit to begin the work. Once everything is completed, we’ll email you an invoice for the remaining payment which will be due 15 days later.
