Semi Custom Website Design Process

When you book your Semi-Custom Website Design service we will have a strategy call to pick your Showit template, discuss your homework, and pick your start date.

We will discuss your current branding and dive deep into how you want your brand to evolve. I will design an elevated brand board, and offer 2 rounds of revisions.

We will have a Kickoff Call at the beginning of the week to discuss the changes that will be made to the Showit templates. I will design the home page first, and send you a preview for you to approve. Then I will complete the remainder of the site design. You will be given two opportunities to submit revision requests. The website will be finalized my the end of week 2.
