The Design Process: why the journey is as important as the destination.
Most people can't think clearly in abstracts.
The first try at a site design isn't intended to provide you with your final product.
It's intended to provide a framework so that you can look at what I've done and say "okay, I like this, but that background color doesn't thrill me. Can we lighten it a little?"
So I listen. I listen to what you're looking for. I think about it and then I build something. What I build is not perfect. It's not supposed to be perfect.
Then I show you what I've built and say "what do you think?" Sometimes I present several possibilities to get a clearer sense. Then I listen some more, and I make changes which I think are more to your liking. This process can continue for some time, with me making changes and you continuing to clarify your interests and desires.
This is not about ego and it's not about giving you the page that I think is best. It's about doing the job of creating the web site that suits your wants and needs. Work with me, and I'll give you a site which is as simple or complex as you want it to be.
