    Question How do you start designing a website?

    Especially when your client doesn't really know where to start. I usually ask them if they have a theme or some chosen colours already, or photos that they would love to put in their website. Also giving in consideration too is the content that they wanted to put in the website.

    When I did design websites, I sat down face to face with the client. Had them show me sites they enjoy going to. I asked them to point out elements that stood out to them. I also discussed their business with them to learn more about it and how they run it.

    I then go back and start doing idea sketches. I then meet with them again and get their opinions on them.

    After that, it's time to actually start designing the site.

    That's a great point to asked them the site they enjoy going to. It'll be my first time designing an e-commerce website so it'll be really hard for me to start from scratch. Thank you for the pointers that you mentioned. It'll be a great help!

    There are two ways to start designing a website:

    - Start designing a website from scratch, for this, you need to do all things as making codes for it.

    - Start designing a website from an existed theme, for this, you need to change more things on it.

    Which is faster? and which is more convenient for you?
