Choice Handy Services

Concept

Create a simple website to showcase the owner's skills and highlight his most frequently requested tasks.

Research

The client had a good idea what jobs were most popular among his customers so we went through a card sorting exercise to determine the major sections and names for the site's information architecture. I created a basic wireframe of the home page to get us started on design.

Development

Rather than start from scratch, I researched templates and based the site on the blue collar handyman template external link from Envato.

I set up domain registration and webhosting for the client.
