After you reach out to me, I will arrange a face-to-face or online meeting so I can get to know you and your brand. I will also ask you to fill out a brief website design questionnaire so that I have complete clarity around your customers, goals and vision of your new website. After I learn a bit more about you and your brand, I’ll send over a fee proposal and project timeline. If you’re happy to proceed, I will issue you a 20% deposit invoice and lock you in my schedule!
To lay the visual foundations of your website, I will send you a Visual Strategy Guideline, which will include an inspiration moodboard, potential layouts, fonts and colour schemes for you to review. This will outline my approach to the website design moving forward, so this is the time to let me know if you would like any elements removed or refined!
At this stage I will need your website copy and any images you wish to include on your new site. Please let me know if you would like custom copywriting or brand photography, I am happy to arrange both at an additional cost.
Once I have a clear and cohesive Visual Strategy for the website, I will get started on the website design wireframes, which I will send to you for review along with a 30% progress invoice. Two rounds of refinement are included, as well as an optional phone call to go through the wireframe design and adjustments.
The platform I use to develop the website will depend on your individual needs, but I predominantly use WordPress. The creation process generally takes four weeks, and on completion I will send you the finished design for approval and a final invoice for payment.
Website Updates and Maintenance
If your website is hosted with WordPress, I offer two options to update and maintain your custom website:
1. DIY updates & maintenance. I’ll show you how to add copy, make simple website changes, and update plugins and themes in a 30 minute training video. One off fee of $50.00
2. Leave it to me. I will conduct all website updates & maintenance. You can send me up to 2 website changes a month (add copy/ images/ special deals/ etc) . Ongoing fee of $45/month
