Has redesigning your website been on your goal list all year? Join me in a 4 week website redesign challenge, and launch your new site by New Years!
Each week students will be invited to join in on a live online class, taught by me, Katie Price. Our class sessions will consist of a one-hour live class meeting where I will cover that week’s topic, answer your specific questions, and assign the challenge homework for the upcoming week. Recordings will be available for students who miss class!
During the 4 week challenge, I will be redesigning Priceless Design right alongside you. You'll be able to see how I'm using the homework and redesigning my site in real time!
The live class sessions are designed to give you examples and the motivation you need to do the work. While the challenge homework will give you an action plan for the week.
Students who turn their homework in on-time will receive personal feedback from me about their work. I'll look at what you are doing and give you an expert opinion and guidance on how to make your website even better!
Students will also have access to an exclusive Pop Up Facebook Group between class sessions to encourage and support one another, bounce ideas around, and get valuable feedback. The relationships built in the community will be priceless as you support one another and grow together!
The challenge starts November 20th, are you in?
Here's the game plan:
Week 00: Research and Planning
Before the first class session, students will be asked to do some homework that includes research and planning for their redesign. The homework will help you take a close look at your current brand and website to see where you're doing great and what could be improved.
Week 01: Logo and Style Guide
Get your logo and brand style guide in tip top shape. If you've never created a style guide for your brand, this will be a great opportunity to define your branding. This will probably be the hardest week for most students because as designers we're our own worst critics, but we'll get through it together!
Week 02: Home Page Design
Using whatever design program you feel most comfortable in, each student will create a mockup of their new home page design. We'll go over mockup tips and tricks in our live class session as well as what to include (and leave off).
Week 03: Web Development
The fun begins as we take our home page mockup and code it on a test site! This week's class will cover my PSD to Genesis WP workflow, but you're welcome to develop on whatever platform you prefer.
Week 04: Perfect Page Content
This week will focus on the page content of our site. Our class session will cover the main pages you should have on your site, as well as best practices for your portfolio. We'll also spend time talking about how to craft your packages and write your services page. By the end of the week you should be ready to launch your new site!
All classes will be held on Tuesday nights at 9pm EST. Recordings are available for those who can't attend live.
