Hell yeah, you can! I am all about creating a unique experience that is customized to your specific branding needs and dreams. 😉 I'd be happy to talk with you more about your options. We can add or remove some design elements or, if there's something you don't see that you'd like, please feel free to ask about it!
Payments are split into two installments: 50% upfront upon booking and 50% once you are completely in love with your brand and/or website. The final payment will be due before I send you any final design files or before your website goes live.
If you'd like to set up your brand + website on a payment plan, you get more info on your options here.
I will have you fill out a Questionnaire and create a shared Pinterest board filled with inspirational images, quotes, colors, etc. to help me better understand your vision.
I also recommend setting up your professional email address, professional phone number (if relevant), and preparing any other contact information or marketing media such as brand photography or headshots before we begin.
Here are a few standard things I need:
- Purchase your domain + hosting
- Prepare your website copy
- Prepare any photos you'd like to include
Since each website is custom to your unique needs, I will give you a detailed list of all the specific items you will need to prepare for your website after you book your package with me.
After booking your design package, I will be using a free project management system called Asana which will allow us to easily share concepts and files with each other, organize the design process, and make sure we stay on track every step of the way. You will always know what's going on and what is next on the list of to-dos!
Moodboards are one of the most exciting parts of the brand identity process! They are a visual representation of all the amazing ideas bouncing around in your head and where your brand really starts to come to life! It's an integral part of the process that helps set the style, feel, and mood for the entire project moving forward.
Moodboards also help prevent me from going in the wrong direction, which can save you a lot of time and money!
For most of my clients, this is the part where things really start to click. They get assurance that I understand what they were trying to translate and trust that I truly have their correct vision and intention in mind when diving into the rest of the branding process.
I use Adobe Illustrator to design and develop your design elements. This is essential for logo design because you will have a vector file that can be scaled to any size without losing its sharpness. Your logo and your marketing collaterals will also be created in CMYK to ensure that they print well.
You will be responsible for ordering any printing of your brand collateral items including business cards, stationery, brochures, etc. If you'd like me to assist you with that, I'd be more than happy to! Please inquire for an additional printing + shipping quote.
It will be your responsibility to provide me with the content you'd like to use on your website, including the copy (what you want written on each page), any photos you'd like to use, etc.
If you need any assistance with these things, please reach out for an additional quote.
If you're interested in learning how to update and maintain your own site, we can add a live, recorded website tutorial to your package where I'll share my screen with you and walk you through all the basics. You'll learn how to log in, how to update plugins, how to check your website traffic, and how to make small updates on your own. I'll then send you the recorded video file so you can rewatch it anytime you need a refresher!
I try to be as transparent as possible during your experience so that there are no additional charges or surprise fees.
Additional charges may apply for the following:
- Licensing fees for special fonts or premium stock photos
- Additional features or items beyond what was included in your package or if you decide you want to go in a different design direction outside of the original scope
- Additional rounds of revisions or concepts beyond the three included
- If your scheduled payments are not made by their due date
I will always communicate potential add-on costs before implementing them or billing you for them.
You will have 2 rounds of edits included per design concept. Design time for additional rounds of revisions will be charged at an hourly rate.
You will receive a custom website designed on the WordPress platform. All of the final design files for your logos, branded elements, and marketing collaterals and will be packaged up and uploaded to a shared Google Drive folder so you can easily download them to your computer.
If you'd like me to help you manage and maintain your website after the launch, I'd be happy to assist you! Please ask about my website maintenance package options.
You may also invest in a recorded live tutorial on Zoom where I will teach you how to sign in to your website, view your stats and make small updates to your site on your own in the future.
While each brand + website package will have a specific list of client responsibilities, the #1 expectation I have for each of my clients is an equal investment in the project. Once we begin, I ask that you make yourself available to provide content, feedback, and general communication in a timely manner
