Website Design and Development Process
I’ll ask the right questions to uncover the truth about why you need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve. Some of these questions may seem a little uncomfortable. In fact, if it doesn’t get a little awkward, then chances are I haven’t done my job.
Once I have all the information I need, I’ll build a visual sitemap so we can all get on the same page very quickly about what it is we’re trying to communicate and the best way to structure the information.
Now instead of trying to tell you what I intend to build and hoping you understand my jargon, at this point I’ll build an interactive prototype in the browser to show you how my solution will work. With no attention to design at this stage, it ain’t pretty, but it gets us close real quick.
The fun begins during the design stage because we get to play with the crayons and colouring pencils to bring your interactive prototype to life to match your brand identity.
Finally, we go underground for a couple of weeks and make sure everything is plugged in and tested before deploying your shiny new website to your hosting server so you can show it off to the whole world.
Being very new to a startup business with no previous experience...
With design services and had numerous quotes for design packages. It was difficult for us to decide on the appropriate package. There was a lot of competition and cheaper options available. Why we decided to proceed with Daniel? Clarity. We felt Daniel presented our options very honestly. The choice in the end was easy as each package represented value and was clear in what we would receive for a set price. We chose the premium package, and never looked back. Daniel took our briefing for a crisp, professional logo for our healthcare business and with no hassles presented us with options that excited us, and nailed our vision. We had constant communication through the process. Since presentation of our logo, we have been able to contact Daniel with any questions regarding file formatting and incorporation into marketing material. If you feel overwhelmed by the choices out there for design services, choose Daniel Sim. You can be confident in the service, communication, value for money, and his work is beautiful.

We are based here in Melbourne and distance was not an issue, he was in contact with us all the way. With plenty of options for us to choose from and with his experience, we are proud to say our logo for our Company was designed by Daniel Sim. A big thank You from our team at Lupa Cleaning Services.

...This company by far exceeded our requirements
After being with the largest franchise company in the real-estate world for many years we looked at branching out on our own. The thought of this was very overwhelming… the Logo is the feel, the look, the strength and the face of your business, by far one of the most important aspects to the look of your business. I had no idea where to start – We had spoken to other companies and they did not have the sharp look we needed. I was referred to Daniel and would say that his approach, service and knowledge put us at ease immediately. We knew that he understood what we wanted and was so efficient to deliver us so many wonderful ideas and advice. Daniel has a great eye for detail and a flair that is very hard to find but the most refreshing aspect of our experience was his patience and professionalism. We have dealt with so many companies over this transition and this company by far exceeded our requirements. Daniel is a must if you a thinking of a new business or a new look for your current business. Thank You so much Daniel!

We cannot say enough about Daniel’s creativity...
We can not say enough about Daniel’s creativity. As a small business, we were struggling with how to brand our business with the perfect logo. We came across Daniel through a websearch and were thrilled to work with him on our project. He provided us with a number of great logo choices, one of which was absolutely perfect! He has been fantastic to work with and we will definitely use him for our additional graphic needs in the future!

He was warm and friendly and expressed a genuine enthusiasm...
From the very first point of communication Daniel stood apart from other designers I had contacted. He was warm and friendly and expressed a genuine enthusiasm and interest in my work along with his initial vision for a brand identity. As an artist, I naturally had creative ideas of my own, but Daniel brought my ideas to life, exceeding all expectations with his impressive and beautiful work. He patiently allowed me to express all my thoughts and then directed my thinking towards a clean, eye-catching logo and somehow captured my personality within it, which was true genius seeing as he had never met me. I consider myself privileged to have worked with Daniel and cannot recommend him highly enough.

...much better than we expected and to our utter amazement...
It has been a wonderful experience working with Daniel Sim. Daniel Sim Designs was initially contracted for our corporate logo design, business’ cards and letter heads…as well as envelopes. Daniel came up with various concepts and patiently worked through our requests until we arrived at our final design; a design we were very very pleased with. When Daniel created the artwork for the business card, we were bowled over; it had a wonderful blend of subtlety, colour and content. It was much better than we expected and to our utter amazement, the cards were even better! Following this positive experience, it was only natural that we considered Daniel for the website. Once again he brought out a level of creativity in his work which left us, to put it plainly, dazed. The website speaks for itself…

His talent is limitless...
Finding a designer who shares your esthetic values is paramount to everything when embarking on a design project. I didn’t realize that I would find him all the way on the other side of the world! Thankfully, with the internet, we were able to work together effortlessly. Daniel created the “M2” logo for my pediatric dental practice over four years ago. From the start, we received so many compliments because it was so unique, colorful and fresh. Today, that logo is a brand. I had such a positive experience working with Daniel that I did not hesitate to go to him again with subsequent design projects. His talent is limitless and he is also one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. He’s fair, honest, efficient and thorough. I know that we will continue to go to him with our design projects in the future. Why change when everything is great??? Thank you, Daniel, you have been a blessing to our business!

His professionalism was top notched...
Dear Daniel, I just wanted to say that it was a pleasure working with you! I truly appreciate your patience and allowing us to agree on designs that we really LOVE! You did an awesome job! Below are the answers to the questions that you sent to me. I was afraid that the cost would be way out of my budget. Also, I thought that working with someone that was not local would be too hard to communicate i.e. my vision and ideas of how I wanted my logo refresh. I loved his work, his designs and his style. The look of his website was so clean and simple. His professionalism was top notched! Daniel made sure that I was 100% happy with his designs, before he finalized my logo. This was way more than I was contracted to get. Daniel has been very prompt with answering all my questions and fixing everything that I have requested. I was also able to directly contact him via phone…which was a huge plus! I would absolutely recommend Daniel to anyone looking for a professional graphics designer, website designer or logo designer. He has been so professional, understanding, and PATIENT throughout this entire project. Thanks again!

I liked Daniel’s work the BEST...
I had already paid two Web designers in my area (United States) and I wasn’t pleased. And so I Google logo specialist? And after reviewing a few logo designers, I liked Daniel’s work the BEST. But the only reason I was reluctant is because he was so far (Australia) and I was concerned about how well the long distance communication would flow and payment,but not getting what I paid for. BUT TO MY SURPRISE HE AND HIS TEAM WERE AMAZING!!!!! I decided to work with Daniel & team because they were so creative , unique in design, classy…..and I wanted something different. I was soooooo blessed during the whole process. Because he is amazingly patient ..and so easy to work with and I just loooved everything he did. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED. He was a great listener and very professional. I WOULD RECOMMEND HIS DESIGNS TO EVERYONE……HE NEEDS TO BE ON TV…. BECAUSE HE HAS STAR QUALITY :).
