WHAT is web design?
Web design is a process of conceptualizing, planning, and building a collection of electronic files that determine the layout, colors, text, styles, structure, graphics, images and use of interactive features that deliver pages to your site's visitors.
What can you expect?
I will build your unique website using the Squarespace platform.
WHAT prep work will i have to do before we can start?
Before I begin to design your website, you will need to purchase a domain name and send me a draft of your written content. You will also need to have your visual content ready to go; that includes all pictures of yourself, products, etc. If you need stock photography, I will recommend some sites and help you out to choose images that support your brand. If you would like to include pictures of yourself, and you don't have a good quality ones already, I am happy to take them for you.
When can we start, and how long does it take?
We can start as soon as you're ready and my schedule permits. I devote myself to only few clients at a time, so I am usually able to create your site in less time than other designers. I ask my clients to meet me at least once a week, either personally or over the phone (using a remote desktop viewer), to discuss their project and make necessary adjustments. We can launch your site a week or two after the start date depending on how ready are you with your prep work.
What is the additional cost?
You can find the pricing information for Squarespace here. Also, in addition to Squarespace, you will need to purchase a custom domain name ("www.yourname.com") from a domain manager. They are about $14 per year. If you prefer to have it all in one place you can purchase your domain from Squarespace here.
If i need a wordpress site, can i still hire you?
Yes. However, I'm not a website developer. To create a custom Wordpress site, you will need to hire a designer and a developer. As a designer, I can help you create your visual brand and then a website developer can write the code to make your Wordpress website come to life.
