Putting together a brand and website seems so overwhelming, I don't even know where to start!
Step 1 is to reach out, Step 2 is to let me do the rest. Let's chat and I'll break down the process for ya.
I'm deciding between a couple different designers. How do I know which is right for me and my business?
Well take a look around and see if you get a good feeling from my style and personality, and I encourage you to do the same with the other designers. It's very important that you vibe with your designer!
I want to make sure my money is well spent. What if I don't love the finished design?
I take a "no-surprises" approach when working with clients. Every stage of the process is approved by you before moving on to the next, so you'll be updated along the way to ensure you like where things are headed.
As a business owner, I have so much to do as is! Will I need to be pulled away often to assist with this process?
As a business owner myself, I completely understand the fear of adding ANOTHER task to the to-do list. My goal is to take as much off your shoulders as possible. The biggest tasks I'll need from you are sending me your website assets (copy/images) and to be available to approve designs.
I don't know anything about maintaining a website. Will it be difficult to update the content when you're done?
I'll do a couple things to help you out here. 1) At the end of the process I'll record a video tutorial showing the ins and outs of making updates and 2) I optimize the 'back end' so it's clear what you can play with and what you shouldn't.
Is it even necessary to hire a professional? Can't I just create my brand or website myself?
You can, but honestly I don't recommend it. So many of my clients have been business owners who first tried to design and build their website themselves only to learn the hard way that it's much harder (and time consumming) than it looks, unfortunately resulting in a lot of wasted time and money.
I've never done this process before. Do I need a lot of knowledge about branding and websites to work with you?
Not at all. I'll go into detail with you about how my process works. Usually, the most technical it gets for you is sending me your assets and website domain/host information. I can walk you through anything you don't understand.
Will your aesthetic fit my business?
Before doing any designing or building, you and I will chat about your business/industry and clientele. I'll create mockups to make sure you like everything before building.
