Heather has worked on 4 website designs total in her career. She has created one website from scratch, and the other 3 were re-designs. She looks at the competition websites for ideas and inspiration. Then she does a wire frame and go over the ideas with the client. Once signed off Heather then does a mockup of what it will look like in photoshop so that the client has an idea of what it will look like.
It is from there that changes are made. Colors, buttons, placement of images. Once the mockup is signed off on, then Heather goes and does all the pages in photoshop and goes through another round of editing until the final proof is done. After that the designs are sent off to the clients web development team to implement onto the web.
