Welcome to a new series where I’ll be taking you through the whole process of redesigning and building my website from start to finish! Please remember to subscribe http://bit.ly/1aE5UOT
The very very first thing I do when approaching a new design project is plan (shocker!). For a website, that means sitting down and thinking through firstly what the goal is for the site and why visitors might be on it, and secondly what pages and templates will need to be designed in order to bring it to life.
In this video you’ll see me make a plan for my website, both for the full site map of my new blog and portfolio, and also for an “MVP” simple landing page I’ll be starting with first.
Hope you enjoy the video and are excited about the series!

// ENJOY MY VIDEOS?
My videos no longer have pre-roll ads because I think ads are annoying. That means you don’t have to sit through ads, and it also means I don’t earn anything from the content I put on YouTube. If you want to support me and my channel the best thing you can do is join my Patreon!
You’ll get tons of extra content and ways to learn, like behind-the-scenes process info, downloadable assets or even a monthly group Google Hangout! Choose your tier and sign up here:
