The first step of the web design checklist is your identity, and if you want to make a website that truly represents your brand, you need to know who you are. Take some time to define your brand’s identity, beliefs, and unique selling points. This will be the basis for the design process, so help me make a website that matches your goals.

Who you are?

It’s vital to me to have an idea of who you are as an individual or a group, in addition to knowing your brand. Talk about what you’re really into, what you’re really good at, and the backstory of your company. This personal touch will improve the authenticity of your website.

Who is it for?

To make a website that will appeal to your intended users, you need to know who they are. Define your target audience, including their age, hobbies, preferences, and problems. This information will help you decide how to create your website so that it directly appeals to your audience.

How Big Is Your Website?

Think about how big and organized your website is. Find out how many pages and what kind of sections you’ll need to fit all of your material and features. By making a model of the website’s structure, I’ll be able to see how it works and make it easier for users to navigate.

Branding Assets for the Website

When it comes to ensuring consistency across all platforms, your branding assets for the website are essential. Please give me the following information:

  • Branding guidelines: Share the style, colors, fonts, and any other design rules for your brand.
  • Logo: Provide high-resolution copies of your logo in different formats.
  • Visual assets: If you already have graphics, icons, or sketches for your brand, share them to keep your visual identity consistent.


A website’s success is built on interesting material. Pay attention to the following:

  • Text: Write clear and compelling content that expresses your brand’s message succinctly. Focus on audience value.
  • Images/Video: Use high-quality visuals to supplement your content and improve the user experience. If you have business-related films, share those as well.

Client's Testimonials

Seek references from your happy clients or customers. Social proof from satisfied clients in the form of testimonials is an effective way to increase sales. The good things your clients say about you will help show how valuable you are.

Search for 3 Websites That Stand Out To You:

Look around the Internet and find three sites whose layouts and styles speak to you. Instead of looking at specific features, focus on how the whole thing looks and feels. Sharing these examples will provide me with valuable insights into your design preferences.

  • Domain registrar: Provide login information for your domain registration account.
  • DNS host: Share login credentials for your DNS hosting service.
  • Current website: If you have an existing website, provide login details.
  • CMS (Content Management System): If applicable, give me access to your current CMS platform.
  • Google Analytics and Search Console: Add me as an admin user to these tools for tracking and monitoring website performance.

Design Strategy

I will create a design strategy that incorporates our discussions, ensuring a visually appealing and cohesive website that effectively represents your business and engages your desired audience.
