What platform do you use to design in?
I use Squarespace, which I love! I have been using SS since they first launched and I love that it's so easy to make updates to the 'look' once the website is designed.
What should I expect the process to be like if I hire you?
Most of my clients tell me that 'they didn't know working with a website designer could actually be fun' ... I am different than most website designers because I don't expect to be told what to do ... I usually design a concept for my clients based on inspiration they have sent me and conversations we've had about the goals they have for their company.
Can I hire you to design a Wordpress website?
Nope, sorry ... I am currently exclusive to Squarespace.
How long does the process take?
Once the design process starts I tell my clients to expect 'start to launch' to take roughly 3-6 weeks. It can be less or it can take longer just depending on the specific client and how quickly they are able to make decisions.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Almost all credit cards, Venmo, Paypal or a check.
Do you offer payment plans?
All of my website design projects use 2-3 payments. There is a retainer required to get on my calendar and book your project and then the remaining 1-2 payments will be due during the design time.
Do you work off templates?
I can, but prefer not to. I do have clients who choose a Squarespace template, but 90% of my websites are designed exclusively for them in which case I strip the template.
Would I work directly with you or do you have employees who would handle my project?
I am a one woman show ... so you get me!
Once the website is live would you be the one making updates going forward?
I teach all my clients how to do general upkeep with their websites. If someone wants to hire me to make updates to the design aspects after launch I do offer an hourly rate for those instances.
What do you need from me to get started on the design?
I ask for a handful of things ... high res images, sources of inspiration and photography / venue credits for optimizing.
Do I have to choose the photos for each page or will you do that?
I prefer to image select as long as my clients trust me to do so.
