Web design may seem glamorous and creative, which it is, but there is another side to successful web projects that tends to get overlooked. This presentation will focus on the planning and project management phases of web design. Whether you are developing yourself or hiring a consultant or agency for your business, whether you are building your first website or you 101st, this proven process will ensure you have a successful project every time. We will be talking sitemaps, wireframes, comps, and tools to make planning your project a breeze. Don’t try to cut corners and skip steps, don’t use Fiverr to build your website and don’t miss this presentation.
