About the author
Darryl King is the founder and CEO of Ireckon a Digital Agency that has been building high-performing websites and applications since the mid-1990s in Brisbane, Australia.
He has been the key lead on many web projects in Australia and Internationally for websites and applications ranging from just a few pages to thousands of pages for brands such as News Ltd, Red Cross and Channel 10.
Throughout his involvement in web design and development over 20 years he has seen the problems, frustrations, and dissatisfaction caused by the lack of planning.
He kept hearing clients and team members as well as other colleagues in the industry asking for a useful template and framework to produce useful plans for both sides of the process. After searching for a suitable system to use and not finding one he developed the Complete Guide to Website Planning to fill the void.

If you are a business owner, read it, print out the templates and have these discussions with your designers.
