Conceptual Design - Mock Approach
Every once in a while we get a customer who wants to make sure we "get it" before committing to a full project. They may have had problems with prior design houses, the client "committee" can't agree on a vision, or they are struggling to express their own vision.
In this case, we explore what the site can do and what it could look like. We build it in a layered photoshop document. The client(s) then have something tangible to conceptualize for a full build, and can shop it around to other developers or better yet get built by Superclean.
This approach can help you get organized, and you will find than it's a self-discovery opportunity for your business.
