Branding and web design

    There’s no such thing as a silly FAQ

    I’m a new business, is this a good fit for me?

    Yes! Every business needs a professional website. For a new business it helps build trust and credibility quickly.

    Which website platforms do you use?

    I create websites in Squarespace, Shopify and WordPress. I custom design each page and then collaborate with an awesome Australian developer to build it out.

    Do you do hosting and maintenance plans?

    I don’t. If you really want a WordPress site, I will recommend you self-host and then pay for quarterly or 6 monthly update Spring Clean sessions ($297). With Squarespace and Shopify hosting is already included in the monthly platform fee.

    However we can setup your domain and get it connected for you.

    What do I need to have ready for you?
    • Services and pricing decided
    • Branding – logos, colour palette, ideally icons and a pattern or background graphic
    • Images + text

    If you need help gathering any of these, I can add branding to our project, and recommend local photographers and copywriters.

    How is the project managed?

    We will use Clickup to keep everything on track. All milestones, feedback due dates and payments are in there for reference. 

    How do the payments work?

    All website projects are broken into 3 payments: 34% to book your spot, then 2 x 33% payments due before the final handover. I am very happy to chat about longer payment plans on a case-by-case basis.

    I need new branding as well...

    Great, I can help with that.

    I have 3 main brand packages. I’m happy to offer a 10% discount if booked at the same time as a website.
