Steps in Our Work

Every project will have a slightly different workflow; whether it be a web based project, a printed piece, or a video. However all projects follow a similar workflow as outlined below.

Project Brief

This is where we sit down and discuss the project together. We go over the project brief, and establish the scope of the work. Then, once the written agreement and contract has been prepared and signed, we begin the project.

Wireframe

The first stage of most projects is to plan and build a prototype or wireframe. This is where we create a blueprint of what we plan on building, and focus on user experience, layout, font size, visual hierarchy, and then pay attention to how the information is structured and presented. This is to ensure that what we are creating is clear to the person using our product.

First Draft

The first draft is the first take on the project. We get an initial product out there, and discuss it thoroughly. We make notes on the changes that need to be implemented, and work towards creating a final product.

Final Product

This is where we create a final product for the end user. This is what the audience gets to see. Once the final product has been approved, the project is considered finished. This is where I offer additional support, however this does not change the original project scope.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! Skylight Designs is a web design & development business, and I can certainly assist you with creating websites for you. I am able to create Hugo, WordPress and Craft powered websites. Please contact me for more details.

Yes I do create logos and brochures. While print is not the forefront of my business’ focus, I do offer creating designs for printing, and logo designs. If you are in need of a logo, brochure, flyer, poster, or business card, etc, I can certainly create those assets for you.

Yes I do accept credit card payments. You can pay an invoice online via credit card, through the Wave accounting application I use. However I do prefer to meet in person, work with clients locally in Ottawa, and accept either checks, or e-transfers directly.

Some projects I go through will have a written proposal and agreement outlining the scope of the project. On occasion, both signatures; from myself and from the client, will be required before the project begins.

Payment methods that will be accepted are: direct bank deposits, e-transfers, checks, cash, or online credit card payments.

What Our Clients Think

"When we wanted to create our first commercial website for Distinctive Audio, it seemed like a daunting project –we just didn't know what was involved or how to get started. Sebastian was a pleasure to work with; his creative design ideas, combined with his impressive technical skills and attention to detail, resulted in a website that surpassed our expectations in its features, appearance and functionality. He had both the confidence and the know-how to get the results we were looking for."

Sebastian understands the importance of how images are used to convey an idea and presented a final product that exceeded my expectations."
