8. access to our resource library
Now you’re booked in my schedule, we’ll stop using email to have our conversation and we’ll start using my project management tool, Asana.
A project management tool is a secure space online where we have have conversations, share files, set reminders, and create to-do lists.
Whereas files often get lost when I’m managing projects through email, nothing gets lost or forgotten in Asana. It’s the simplest way to keep your project organized and make sure it goes as smoothly as possible!
Don’t worry – you won’t need to pay for this tool and it’s not hard to use. Click the button to watch a 2-minute tutorial on how to use it!
2. Here’s what I need to get the project started
1. Create a Pinterest board
On Pinterest, create and fill a public board with inspiration for your project. If you get stuck, feel free to watch this video for tips on how to do this and what to pin.
Send me the link to your board (in Asana) when you’re done so I can see it! (You can delete the board once your project is complete). Watch the video above in the ‘Project Management’ section of this page to see how to do this.
2. Complete your questionnaire(s)
Below are links to the questionnaires I may need you to fill out. It will help me understand your goals and needs for this project and help me design strategically for your ideal audience.
**YOU ONLY NEED TO FILL OUT THE ONES THAT APPLY TO YOUR PROJECT.
For example, if you are only a brand client, no need to fill out the website design client questionnaire and visa versa.
3. Send me your website content (for web design projects only)
In order to stick to timeframes and deadlines set, I will need all the content for your website before I start the project. If you would like help copywriting, you can add on a copywriting service fee for an extra charge (if you have not done so already). I have created a Google Document to help you fill out the content that will be needed for most general websites if you are writing the copy by yourself.
You will need to provide the text for all pages and supply your logo (if I’m not doing your branding!) and any particular photos you want to be used on the site. You can upload these files to the ‘Homework’ task in our Asana project. (See the next Project management section of this page to understand how to do this.)
3. feedback guidelines
I really appreciate simple and straightforward feedback. It helps me clearly understand your thoughts and make the right changes to your project.
Here are a few tips on providing awesome feedback:
Try and use bullet points to break up your feedback.
Use headers to organize your feedback.
Read over your feedback to make sure it’s clear and check that you’ve answered any questions I may have asked.
Post your feedback as a comment on the relevant Asana discussion instead of emailing me directly. Back and forth emails can get tiring but communicating in Asana is a breeze!
If you have team members that would like to add their feedback, I kindly ask that you gather the feedback into one message. This stops everyone from getting confused and keeps the project organized.
To help keep your project on track to finishing on time, please provide feedback on your designs within two business days of receiving them.
I really appreciate your effort to provide files and feedback on time. Timeliness from both of us will help us get your project done on (or even before!) the deadline so you can move on to the next exciting task on your to-do list and I can cheer you on.
