First, we'll need some basic contact info.

Your name *

Your phone number

Now let's find out a bit about your Company

Company name

Company overview *

This section introduces us to your company. As such, the content should be fitting for an introduction (not a thesis). Briefly tell us who you are, what you do, size of company, and what your vision or mission statement is.
Now, let's get to the good stuff and find out about your project.

What is the project scope? *

Select all that apply.

Project overview *

Describe in plain English your current web site situation, and give us an overview of what the project is going to entail. Don’t try to be too formal or politically correct here… oftentimes corporate semantics can muddle the message. Write in the manner you’d describe the project to a friend.
Goals and Objectives *

This section is the spot to list your short term and long term objectives for the project, as well as your motivation for investing in your web site. It aims to answer the question, “why are you here?” Is your website outdated? Have you expanded your services/product line? Are you marketing to a different target audience? Are you trying to attract job candidates? Or are you finding your existing site isn’t converting to enough sales? Tell us what you want to achieve.
What kind of relationship do you want to explore with Brightside Studios? *

What's the #1 problem you're trying to solve with your project? *

Don't think too hard. Use your gut.
Okay, stay with us here. Just a few technical questions!

Is this a Dynamic or Static website? *

Do you need your website to be dynamically driven (with a Content Management System that you can update yourself, like a blog, with WordPress), or just a static brochure website?

How many pages do you need? *

For example: Home, About, Services, Contact us = 4 pages.

How many unique layouts do you need? *

For example, you may have 5 pages, but all inside pages have the exact same layout, therefore you may only have 2 unique layouts.

What is your website URL? *

Who is your hosting provider? *

Do you need your website to be responsive? *

This means your website will automatically adjust its layout to work seamlessly and beautifully on any mobile device.
Now let's talk about how you want your website to work.

Usability testing is a frequently overlooked step in web site design and development. Just as companies will put new products through focus groups as part of the Research & Development process, a web site should be put through at least a basic round of usability testing to determine how well the design and build works in practice.

Usability & User Experience *

If you’re interested in developing a persona or having us perform user research as part of the development process, tell us here. If not, you will still need to tell us about your audience. If you have relevant statistics about the demographics of your current web site visitors, refer to them here. If you have a specific flow you would like your visitors to follow, run through it with us.
Website Functionality *

In layman’s terms, this section asks the question, “What do you want your website to DO?” We need you outline the features and functionality you’ll be wanting to see on your site (this could be things like a secure members area, contact forms, file upload functions, database development to store lead info, content management system to edit your own content, custom admin area, newsletter opt-in form, blogs, news sections, discussion forums, FAQ or knowledgebase, or e-commerce to sell products).
Great work! Now it's time to talk budget.

This is another item that a lot of people skip over. We understand that you want to get as much as you can for as little as possible (it’s human nature), and we also understand that a small proportion of unscrupulous designers will pad their quotes to max out your budget. We’re not in that group, and we don’t play that game.

Be honest about what you can afford, and we’ll be honest and respectful about what we can give you within those parameters. Even if your budget is a little lacking, there are usually compromises that can be made here and there to accommodate you.

If you don’t have a budget set at all, then you’re not ready to be undergoing this step – your business plan should already include budgets for marketing and corporate identity development.

How much do you plan to invest in this project? *

Choose an approximate budget range. Please keep in mind, you will be billed in Canadian Dollars (CAD).

That wasn't so bad, was it? Now let's find out when you want this project to be complete.

What is your estimated timeline? *

This is an easy one – if you have a rough date by which you’d like the project done, let us know here. Similarly, if you have specific deadlines, we’ll need to know those as well. Remember, most designers will charge a premium for rush jobs – you’re bumping other paying clients out of queue when you request priority status.

How did you hear about Brightside Studios? *

Were you referred to us by somebody? A mutual contact? Google? Social media? Please let us know here.
