Self Design Website Project


Project Summary

The "Self Design" project will involve no design phase; we will not be doing any custom design creation for you. Instead, you will send me your final design and I will implement that design into the website as is. I will need a layered Photoshop source file for this; I will provide you with a list of all the required specs for this, as well as some basic Photoshop template files you can use to get started if you'd like. I will also review your design to let you know if there are any mistakes or if I see anything that won't work.

Once the final design file is sent to me, I will start the programming to implement the design into the website framework. The website will utilize a standard set of built-in layouts, so the one sample page design is sufficient for me to implement your designs throughout the whole website. Once the site is programmed, you will be able to review the entire website and request minor adjustments as desired (though we cannot go back and make major design changes after the design has already been finalized and programming work begun).

You will have access to your admin control panel where you will add all your content to the website. In the admin you can set up your galleries, upload your photos, add your print options, etc.

I will also assist along the way to get your domain name connected (whether before or upon launch), to set up a business email account (if desired), and to handle any other technical steps necessary to get the site up and running.

In order to get started, you must agree to the following Terms & Conditions and send a deposit payment below.
