5 simple steps to a stand-out website (plus a free checklist!)
In this post, I’ll show you the simple 5-step process I used to design a strategic website that helped my client book an AT&T commercial.
But first, we need to talk about cake.
Isn't a bad cake a bummer? There's the kind that is slathered in too-sweet, too-thick frosting. There’s the kind that seems to have been baked extra-dry. There’s the kind that you take to the office and foist on your unsuspecting colleagues (or at least you used to, back when you were working your 9-5 job).
Any of those kind of cakes make me sad. To paraphrase Mary Berry from the Great British Bake Off, cake should be nothing short of exceedingly good.
Your website is a lot like a cake.
First, you gather the raw ingredients: text, images, colors, fonts, and graphics. Next, you bake these ingredients into a whole that’s greater than the sum of its parts.
Like baking, this can feel like a mysterious process. How do all these things add up to an end product thats beautiful, seamless, and oh so right?
Good design isn't magic. It's a recipe. To show you the steps, I’ve created a 5-minute video training.
In this video, I’ll walk you through the 5-step design process I used to create a new site for my client Faiven and show you how you can steal this process for your own site.
