Theme Package

View Complete Methodology

The fastest path to a turn-key, fully branded wiki.

Highlights

Starting with your existing logo, color palette, and stock art or image gallery (from your organization's corporate identity or branding standards guide), Brikit will do the rest.

After reviewing your project roadmap, we'll build your complete theme package. This includes:

  • ready-to-upload theme 
  • content exports for your landing page and a typical second-level page, including site menu, default page layout, header, and footer
  • status review and walk-through every review and feedback cycle
  • up to four design revision cycles

Before we begin, you will need to complete the Discovery Package.

Covered by the Service Terms Agreement (sorry, no alterations or substitutions).

Complete package: $16,500

Ground Rules

With your guidance, our design team will complete the following checklist to create your Theme Package. The full process typically takes 9-10 weeks from start to finish. A couple of notes:

  • The Discovery Package must be completed before starting this package.
  • Each review cycle is open for one week.
  • All deliverables will be deployed to, and available on your private demonstration portal.
  • Work-in-progress theme and demo content will be available for installation on your servers after each build.
  • If needed, you may put the process on "vacation hold" for up to one year.
  • If you need assistance developing your identity package, we can pause the process at the appropriate step and provide support through Service Punchcards.

The Theme Package process and Service Punchcard requests and tracking will be supported with your private portal (Confluence spaces) on our servers, which includes up to three user accounts. Your portal will be maintained for one year after completion of last service package or punchcard. User accounts inactive for six months will be automatically disabled (simply contact us to reactivate).

Exclusions

To make the Theme Package as cost-effective as possible, the process is tightly defined (see above). If needed, additional assistance is available through Service Punchcards for the following items that are not included:

  • Information design (defining spaces, permissions, etc., also called "information architecture")
  • Content creation, editing, or migration
  • Site buildout outside of: site home page, secondary landing page, menu, and footer
  • Identity/Brand Material build out (color palette and logos, for example)
  • Training
  • Work performed on your servers (for example: installing/configuring the Theme Package deliverables, VPN and user account setup, reviewing content, add-on installation, troubleshooting, and other work performed on your servers)

Extras

Sometimes the unexpected happens, and changes to the above process are needed. Here are common variations we've encountered and their associated costs:

  • Additional vacation holds (half a Service Punchcard)
  • Revise your theme if your identity materials change after sign off (one Service Punchcard)
  • Change target Confluence version after sign off (half a Service Punchcard)
  • Additional review cycle (most commonly used when identity materials change late in the process, half a Service Punchcard)
  • Additional year of maintaining your portal (half a Service Punchcard)
  • Additional user account to your portal (half a Service Punchcard per year)
