RAD is awarded digital designer & developer w/numerous international clients. Educated + seasoned in USA. 20+ years of work experience.
He formed his digital design studio after serving 8 years as the Director New Systems Development at VERIZON, Creative Services Group, a prototyping arm of VERIZON Telecommunications at the time.
It's our hope that our design studio will become your trusted one-stop-shop for web, print & packaging design + all your web development needs. Me and my team provide an amazing spectrum of digital services, and we proud ourselves to be the top of the line in all of them.
Below is a quick snap of my process. Each process will vary depending on what will achieve the maximum return to clients:
Phase 1 - sketches
I will take your requirements and sketch out the original pages. This will allow us to quickly see if we need to make any adjustments and make sure I am on the right track.
Phase 2 - wireframing
I will then take the sketches and put them into wireframes (gray scale drafts) and we will again go back and forth to ensure that they are on track
Phase 3 - interactive wireframes (optional)
At this stage I will load the approved wireframes into online draft demo that will allow us to explore the wireframe site to ensure that the UX will meet your goals
Phase 4 - desktop home page design
At this stage I will design the homepage based off of the approved wireframes to ensure that it is has the look and feel you want
Phase 5 - design completion
Here, I will design out the remaining pages as well as any other break points you may need.
Phase 6 - online build
We will exchange all needed log in credentials, license any needed assets, and I will start building pages, creating databases, and everything else to complete the site or online application. This stage can be divided into multiple milestones for more complex projects.
