At this time last year, SmartPassiveIncome.com got a serious facelift. With the help of the amazing team over at RocketCode.io, we revamped the website to make it faster, sleeker, and more searchable, all in pursuit of providing you guys with the best experience possible. In today’s episode, you’ll meet two of the people who made this website overhaul possible: my Design Director, Dustin Tevis, and Project Manager, Corey Hivner.
Dusty and Corey are seasoned experts at crafting websites that both function well and look amazing. That’s no easy feat, either—building a great website requires a big-picture understanding of both design and engineering. That’s why I’ve invited them on the show today: to talk through what a successful website redesign process looks like.
In this episode, you’ll hear Dusty and Corey’s advice for identifying your redesign goals, communicating with designers and developers, managing feedback, and avoiding common pitfalls. You’ll also learn their favorite tools for communicating during a design process, plus a few crucial questions to ask yourself the next time your website needs a makeover.
