Glad to have you here at Design with Miller.

Welcome to Design with Miller,

a creative design studio ready for adventure.

At Design with Miller, I specialise in concepting, designing, developing, and maintaining Webflow websites. My clients have used my design services to push campaigns forward and position their brand towards a stronger identity. I have helped numerous clients, teams, and agencies find their voice through creative story-telling, website development, and design.

Web Design Services

Need a website? I can help you with that. I use a variety of applications including Slack, Figma, and Webflow to build websites. These applications make it easier and faster to communicate, collaborate, and develop eye-catching websites.

One Man Army

No need to hire multiple Freelancers

I pride myself in being a one man army that can project manage, design, illustrate, animate, and develop. However, if I feel like something is out of my league, need help with copywriting, or think that another illustrator could be perfect for the website, I will not hesitate to collaborate with other freelancers. I will always communicate this to you and let you know what I can or can not do.

Collaboration

Collaboration is a key player

When working on any project, collaboration is key. This is why I use tools like Zoom, Slack, and Figma that take collaboration to a whole new level. While Zoom and Slack are great for communicating, Slack delivers a great platform for collaboration as it lets you watch, edit, or prototype the wireframes and website mockups I build.

Communication

Communication is key in the website process

Communication is extremely important during the website design and development process. I understand the significance of communicating with different people to help concept and develop big ideas. That's why I use Slack for quick messaging, project updates, and the occasional Office gif. I lay out my process in detail from the very beginning and give you an estimated timeline for the project. This is so you can follow me along the process and receive updates every step of the way.

Project Management

Know how to juggle multiple projects at once

It is crucial to be able to pick up a heavy work load and produce insightful and meaningful material, all while having fun doing it. In this hectic digital age, Design with Miller understands the seriousness of staying organising while juggling multiple projects and using Slack, Zoom, and Gmail to communicate with our clients, project manager, copywriter, creative director, and other designers on the progress of every project.

Our design and development process emphasises
communication and collaboration.

Planning Phase & Brand Identity

Designing a website isn’t just about making a website that holds information. It’s a branding tool and the design process opens the door for a chance to really focus on creating a website that is unique and stands out. Don’t think of this just as a time to create a website, but an overall branding project. It is a perfect time to take a step back and think: “What am I about?” “What are my goals?” “What makes me different?”

First we meet and connect with you and your team to analyse what you envision for the website and plan the next steps. This phase includes:

  • Organising content and identifying where information will go.
  • Reviewing competitor websites to compile effective keywords for search-engine optimisation.
  • Create a sitemap to get a solid foundation of exactly what information will on what page.
  • Moodboard creation to brainstorm ideas and get the creative juices flowing.

Wireframe Phase

Once we are on the same page, the layout begins. I will build wireframes from the information given by the sitemap. Wireframes are the skeletons of the website process. You will see how the website will be organized and how the information will all flow together. The list of key steps in this phase include:

  • Establish information hierarchy.
  • Organize the information into sections that flow nicely, and are easy for the visitor to follow and understand.
  • Have a solid understanding of how the information will be presented.
  • Develop a solid foundation for user flow with an end goal that leads to high conversion rates (potential client contacting you to set up an appointment).

Design Phase

In this phase you will see physical elements of the website come together. Color palettes, images, fonts, icons, and backgrounds will be created and designed in this phase. I use Figma to design all of my websites. It is a great tool for the client to see how the website comes to life in real time. This phase includes:

  • Creating a solid color palette that is on brand and shown across all pages on the website.
  • Finding the perfect photos that relate to the user and are on brand.
  • Selecting fonts that will be used throughout the website.
  • Brainstorming icon design that helps organize and visualize information.
  • Putting all the design elements together into Figma to create a life-like mockup.

Development, Testing, and Maintenance

In this phase I will use the sitemap, wireframes, and mockups to develop/build out the website. I build my websites using Webflow, a powerful CMS that is completely customizable, user-friendly, and optimised. After your website is up and running I can help maintain your site at an hourly rate. This phase includes:

  • New home and interior pages.
  • HTML, CSS, and JavaScript development using Webflow.
  • Content Management System (CMS) creation. The creation of collection Lists for quick and easy organisation/editing.
  • Optimization for ipad and mobile.
