How do we communicate through the website build?Before we begin working together, we'll usually have an initial chat on the phone to discuss the project. Once we get started, most of the communication will take place over email. This makes the process a lot easier as we'll have all of the information saved to keep referring back to, and ensures we're always on the right track.
What will you need from me?It really depends on the project / type of website you want. We'll be able to discuss this on our discovery call before we start working together. Depending on which package you choose and the requirements of your brand, we could need...

We also provide you with an instructional tutorial video that shows you how to navigate your site.
