What information should I give my website designer before starting a project?

Before building a website, it is important to tell your web designer/developer a bit about yourself or your company and why you need a website. It seems like a silly question but once you think about what you would like to achieve, for example, increasing online sales or creating brand awareness, your website can then be constructed to accommodate these goals.

I’ve included a list below of the questions we ask all of our clients before we start a web project. This information helps us to really understand you and your needs to ensure we can create the best possible experience for you.

To make things even easier, we’ve built a handy project builder which you can view by clicking here so you can fill out your answers and send it straight to us. You can also send us an email to hello@findcreative.london with your project details.

I look forward to connecting with you soon!
