The CurlyHost Process...

We have you in mind every step of the way - so in the end, you'll have something you feel proud to show off!

You're only 10 steps away to your seeing your vision come to life!

1. Introduction

Tell us about you & your business.

Our introduction phase is the key to creating something awesome! We take the time to get to know your intention – purpose – goal – and vision. And also YOU – because it’s your business after all.

How so? Through fun questionnaires and video chats with our one and only Creative Director, Andrea!

2. Project Proposal

We give you the details.

After we have gotten to know your wants and desires we will package a customized proposal. This document will go over cost – next steps – and other general information so you know exactly what to expect as things progress.

With the sign-off of your proposal, we also ask for a deposit. Once your deposit is received (payment by check is preferred), the Curly Crew will jump in to kick off your project! 

3. Branding Assets

Getting the goods.

This could go 1 of 2 ways.

If you already have an established brand – logo – photography – and so on. We would LOVE to get those files from you so we can put the pieces together to create cohesive visuals and messaging. 

OR…

If you need branding assets curated, the creative team at CurlyHost is ready to wow you!

Send us your files using Google Drive or WeTransfer – email to hello@curlyhost.com)

*If there are any other design files you have such as presentations, graphics etc. Feel free to send those along as well.

4. Wireframe/Design

Let's get creative!

This is where it really gets fun! The creatives at CurlyHost will take all the details you’ve provided up to this point – and design a wireframe or brand guide (depending on what your business needs) that is sure to knock your socks off!

And all you have to do is sit back and relax – take a load off. You earned it!

5. Design Review

Your opinion matters!

We give you the opportunity to give your opinion every step of the way. And this is a BIG one. After the Curly Crew has designed your branding assets or home page wireframe we want your feedback. You’ll be able to leave any thoughts on fonts – colors – layout, etc.

We use a tool called Pastel for making notes of your feedback. We LOVE it – and we know you will too!

6. Development

The build out phase.

Everything up to this point will be designing files and graphics – but here in this phase, you’ll start to see those concepts take life in digital space.

We are talking page links, website forms, shopping experiences, sliders, animation, all the things that come together to create your custom website!

7. Review

That's right, it is time to review again.

We told you your opinion is important to us – and it couldn’t be more true!

As we are building out the internal pages of your website you’ll get to leave comments and feedback. And even better… see changes in real-time!

All this through the tool we mentioned earlier – Pastel!

8. Social + Print Materials

Creating cohesive design.

That is right! We also specialize in print and digital design. Once we have crafted your brand assets and website – it is a great time to explore designs that you can use on other platforms. 

Instagram – Facebook – Business Cards – Posters – Pamphlets – Presentations. Anything that your company needs to get your voice – product – or services out into the world!

9. Training

We want you to feel confident about your website.

We take pride in giving our clients the resources and know-how to use their websites. Through virtual training and our ever-growing resource library, you will know how to make text edits – add new images – create a blog post – or keep your shop up to date. 

It is YOUR website and we want you to feel good about that.

10. Launch!

Time to send it out into the world!

This might just be our favorite part of the process! Taking everything we’ve talked about – worked on together and making it go live for all to see and use. 

This is why we do what we do – to help people and businesses like you find your visual voice and give you the tools to shout it from the rooftop!

11. Are You Ready To Get Bonus Points?

We would love to hear from you!

When all is said and done we would love to get your feedback, thoughts, ideas – all are welcome!

We aim to continue to grow for each of our client’s needs.
