So you have toiled away through blood sweat and tears to create the perfect design for you client’s new website, but how to you show it to them?
The easiest thing to do is save a flattened comp of the design as a jpg and email it to your client, but there are a couple drawbacks to this approach:
Don’t let MS Paint happen to you!
I have found the best option is to add the image in an HTML file and upload it to a server. Then you can simply email the client a link to the HTML file. This method has a couple benefits:
The only real downside to this is some clients will think that it is a functioning website and wonder why the navigation doesn’t work. sigh Well you can’t in them all…
In the past I would add the design comp image to the HTML page and link it to the next page so the client could click the image to view the Home Page, About Us Page, etc… But I recently created a jQuery plugin to streamline this whole process so all you have to do is add the images in an unordered list to one page. Check out the Comp-Presenter jQuery plugin.
