Collect all available information relevant to the project.
This could include a written brief, background material, studying
existing branding, legal issues and research necessary
for the project.
Questions should be ask at this stage in
order to understand the client's expectations.
Asking the right questions is the utmost importance. Design erodes to
nothing more than decoration. So it is important to ask the folowing questions.
Why are we doing this?
What specific outcome are we looking for and how will we know when we have achieved this?
What can get in the way of our success and what can we do to mitigate that risk?
At this stage it’s a good time to look at the competition and their approach and figure a way to gain the advantage.
The information is analysed and an initial proposal developed that reflects the understanding of the project .
When the initial proposal has been accepted and everyone agrees on the details,
preliminary design ideas are developed. This is where the creative process is
given free reign within all the constraints established in Stage One.
may be colour combinations, typography, graphic style, keywords, technology. You might
end up with a lot of visuals remembering that some things work and some don't.
The ones that make most sense are refined and assessed as to the practicality of development.
Also move away from them for a day if possible to see them from a fresh point of view.
Generally only present three concepts to my clients for review, usually in pdf format.
Client feedback and discussion result in the preferred concept being chosen for Stage
Three development. Approximate the cost of the implementation.
The selected concept is worked up with all details implemented.
Variations may be developed as well as further mock-ups. A logo
would be created with subtle variations, different colours, fonts and etc.
A website's various pages would be assembled in Photoshop and sample
pages created in html or Flash to experience the on-screen effect.
A brochure might have photographs commissioned or purchased from a library
which would need selection and approval.
This stage can seem a bit
random but it really depends on the item being designed.
The important point to bear in mind is that this is an organic process and details can
be changed if necessary.
A detailed specification of the design for production planning and
final costing would also be created at this point.
After Stage Three approval, finished artwork is produced as required.
For print this usually involves the creation of print-ready pdfs and
detailed specifications are also created for outside suppliers.
For websites, designs are converted into html code.
I like to mention step 5
- Supervision of production.
Quality control is important so to oversee production through to completion.
In the case of print it usually just means checking printer's proofs although
the pdf system is very reliable.
Choose a website name, sort out your hosting
and learn how search engine optimization is vital and how it is implement in any design.
Websites are also tested on various browsers. There are various on-line tools to help with this.

By default, accordions always keep one section open. To allow for all sections to be be
collapsible, set the collapsible option to true. Click on the currently open section to collapse its content pane.
Because the accordion is comprised of block-level elements, by default its width fills the
horizontal space. To fill the vertical space allocated by its container, set the heightStyle option to
"fill", and the script will automatically set the dimensions of the accordion to the height of its parent

The blockquote element is a mechanism for marking up a block of text quoted
from a person or another document or source. It may be just a few lines, or
it may contain several paragraphs (which you’d mark up using nested p elements).
The W3C recommendation states that web page authors should not type quotation
marks in the text when they’re using blockquote—we can leave it to the style
sheets to take care of this element of presentation (just as it should be
when the q element is used for short, inline quotations). In practice,
though, many authors do choose to include quote marks, as browser support
for automatically inserting the language-appropriate quotation marks is extremely poor.
