Things that seem like they’ll be a 5 minute task turn into hour long ordeals. I think I’m pretty much done with the first version of my client’s site, which should’ve been done last Monday. We’re already visualizing where she’d like to take the site and what it will to look like.
The one main thing I’ve taken from this first site is that when you take over a project for someone else you should communicate with the client as much as possible when you initially take over. Last night was the first time I really communicated with the client and saw where they’re head is and what their ultimate goals are. It’s really motivating to me to see what people are working on, hear their passion and what they want to share with the world. It makes me want to help and make their vision come to life.
