Meet CP Sharp
My team and I have always felt that one the largest obstacles to the marriage of technology and design
is when the techies just don’t get what the artists are looking for. Over time
we’ve settled on a few questions that are brief and concise but give us a lot of the information we
get to work.
Ready to get
WordPress is a blogging solution that’s been in existence for a number of years
has managed to survive in a thriving tech market because it simply does a great job at separating the
workings of the technology from the content production that is involved in keeping websites great. I
Susan has mentioned this to you, and all but the most exception clients I’ve had have been very
satisfied with wordpress. Don’t let me lock you into it though, if you decide you’d like to
with me we’ll give you a chance to try some other options.
No, or I’m not sure
Lets talk design
A great website design is much easier to bring to life if there’s a base strong
behind it. If you’re already established, great! If you’re not, even better, because now is
you get to think about what your site might look like! Do you have a logo?
or I’m not happy with mine

So once we’re past the simple questions, we’ll start focusing in
specifics of how you want your page to feel. Now, before I say more I want to assure you that your site
impressive if you decide on the Hyundai or the Mercedes. I stand behind the work of my team and we
be happy until you are. That being said, there are sites such as the photograpy/blog site
theworldinmylens.com which, while I’m sad to say
design, is very active, loaded with content, and remains pleasing to the eye at the same time. After
site,as it relates to anotheimage heavy site, called theworkcycle.com, to
me the feel of the photography site simply has more pull on emotions, but accordingly, would takme much
build and come at a higher price point.
To make it straight forward, let’s say these two sites are on opposite ends of the spectrum, where
the level of detail you’re looking for in your design falling between 1 and 100.
Finally, the business end
It’s very important I understand the kind of business are you are doing?
something vague can be helpful if you haven’t quite found your niche! The characteristics of the
have a lot to do with how the site operates and feels.
What do you want you site visitors to come to see see at your website. As I might
friend over to show him a new TV, you’re going to be inviting customers to a new online presence
good to have a solid idea of what you want them to see first.
Finally, how do you plan to monetize the site? How is it going to increase your
stream? Some of my clients get more than half of their references from their internet presence, so it’s
the things that should be most important as we approach a design strategy.
