Web Designer Mark always sends me design-related items a few minutes prior to our phone conferences so that I can have an opportunity to develop some quick first impressions before he formally presents the design to me.
Knowing we had a call at 8:30 this evening, I had logged into my "work" email early and I was waiting for the email. It arrived about ten minutes before our call - right on schedule. I was DELIGHTED when I saw his design for the home page and decided to get Jim's reaction. (He was sitting across from me, also on his laptop). When I spun my laptop around and said "Hey, look at this!" he audibly gasped!! He thought Zoe's home page looked beautiful. So did I.
Mark and I had a twenty minute conversation where he reviewed what he had done with me and gave me time to make comments and ask questions. As usual, I'll review for a day or so and provide him with my feedback via email. I love that he has not only captured everything I've said to him about my vision for the store/site but also that he has been faithful to incorporating the branding, logo, and Zoe Girl throughout. I also like that he doesn't want to make Zoe Girl a pre-packaged clone of every other website out there. He understand my desire for clear, clean, yet unique.
Tomorrow: Might there possibly be good news on the lease?
