I just got back from meeting with my client. We reviewed a bunch of websites: Popular trends, successful small business and great design sites. After going over with about 10 or more websites with the client and explaining what I like about each website and what I think works (or doesn’t work), I now have gained a great deal of knowledge of what exactly my client wants. She also told me what she liked about each site or did not like based on what I showed her.
By this weekend I should have the mock-ups completed and approved so I can begin coding shortly. Realistically I would have probably have been a little further in the process by now, but we were both busy the week before the 4th, so it got pushed back a little. However, I still think we are on track and making good time, just less room for errors on my part! No worries though!
