I'm Eklavya. Pronounced "Ek" as in ache & "lavya" as in love ya.
I'm the main point of communication and work with a wide network of illustrators, developers & animators to bring ideas to fruition. I've found the most success by taking a stake in the outcome of projects I work on and this philosophy is at the core of ENSO. We are lean and mission driven, focusing less on scope and more on tangible outcomes.

We appreciate the opportunity to submit this proposal on behalf of ENSO Creative for the design and development of a new website tailored to showcase Japanet's cruise packages for the American market. Here, we cover goals for this project, pricing, timeline and some of our successes with previous projects.


We like to take notes :)
For us, every successful collaboration starts with a list of ideas that guide our decisions on core focuses, challenges and opportunities. This list of ideas helps us set clean KPIs and benchmarks to achieve.

Tailored Approach

Every project has it's own requirements and ENSO's approach reflects that reality. We start with user and competitor research to build a site map that focuses on maximizing your conversion. Then we move to a low-fidelity wireframe that focuses on copy and maximizing your on-site SEO benefits. Then, lastly, we add the magic of design to stretch your brand to the structure with a high-fidelity mock-up. 
We will work closely with Japanet's team to capture the essence of their offerings and present them in a manner that speaks directly to American travelers, using the tools that make your digital presence scale.

Design appeal to US Audiences

Our team of experienced designers will craft a visually stunning website that aligns with Japanet's brand identity while incorporating design elements tailored to the American audience. The website will feature a user-friendly interface, high-quality imagery, and an intuitive navigation system to enhance the user experience. Our goal is to create a professional and engaging platform that not only showcases the cruise packages effectively but also encourages visitors to explore further and convert into customers.

Documentation + Handoff

ENSO is committed to providing transparent and comprehensive documentation throughout the design and development process. This includes detailed project timelines, progress reports, and thorough testing procedures to ensure the website meets the highest standards of functionality and performance.
While handing off the project to your team, we provide thorough documentation on how to maintain and scale the website if needed.

Site Map

A site map provides a clear navigation hierarchy for the website. The chart below shoes how users will interact with the website and which content/info they will see first.

Gallery Showcase: A visually appealing and responsive gallery will be implemented to showcase the beauty and luxury of Japanet's cruise packages, allowing potential customers to envision their travel experience.

Company Bio: A concise and compelling company biography will be prominently featured to introduce Japanet's rich history and commitment to providing exceptional travel experiences.

Brochure Sign-Up Page: An easy-to-use sign-up page will be created for users interested in receiving brochures, ensuring a seamless lead generation process for Japanet.

Cruise Route Map: An interactive map will be integrated to visually display the cruise route, enhancing the user's understanding of the itinerary.

Pricing & Deliverables

We work on a flat fee basis for projects, so we quote you a single project price instead of an hourly rate. The scope of work, complexity of the problem, and a host of other influences are factored into our pricing; meaning every project is different.

Why a fixed bid?

We've experimented with everything, and the most effective exchange of value for us and our clients has always been a flat-fee. Results that meet your performance needs are our only objectives. Depending on complexity and timeline, the time it takes to achieve these results varies between projects and an hourly bid loses our clients value.


We work with speed, clarity and are decisive in our approach to all projects. We don't waste time in unnecessary meetings and bureaucratic phases. This timeline is a rough outline of the amount of time we usually take on projects with the same scope as yours.


We begin by doing competitor research and outlining objectives and deliverables. This phase maybe shorter, but on average, we collect necessary copy write info, assets like images/videos and technical details within the first week of starting.

1 week

This is the most important and longest phase of our process as web builders. We work closely with you to build low fidelity renditions of the website layout, design illustrations and choose imagery and blend these into a high fidelity design. This is the longest phase in our process because we pay special attention to feedback and iterate our design to work for you.

2 weeks

We have a tried and trusted process when it comes to building easy-to-load and scalable web interfaces making us quick when it comes to deliveries. That being said, we understand that needs may change when implemented and so our process is adaptive.

1 hour

We've worked with dozens of different domain providers and hosting platforms. So we're flexible existing solutions or migrating to the new best solutions for you. With clarity in communication, we launch your site on the internet in a way that you can control and monitor.
