Building your website will usually take between 4-6 weeks. This relies on you being available to communicate and review your designs as soon as they come to you. It's best to book in when you know you have some free time to review and provide feedback.
What is Squarespace?
Squarespace is an online website creation platform. It’s one of the most powerful website content management systems. I choose Squarespace to build client (and my own) websites because it’s "all in one". Squarespace manages your hosting, all updates and any problems all by paying the monthly/yearly fee. This means that, unlike most providers, you wont have to hire anyone to maintain your website and you don't have to stress about maintaining anything yourself. You also wont be paying for a bunch of plugins or services, Squarespace manages this all. After the design process is complete I will teach you how to very easily make changes. Like changing wording somewhere or publishing your newest blog post.
With Squarespace, It's as simple as drag, drop, go!
RESEARCH & CONTENT COLLECTION
After you’re all booked in and ready to go, I’ll get straight to work on picking your brain. First I’ll provide questionnaires which you will need to fill out thoroughly so I can really get a good idea of your target audience and goals for your business. We’ll also discuss other brands you are drawn to, or other pieces of inspiration that may be helpful to the design process. On top of that I will conduct industry research to check out your competition and to get a really good idea of the market.
A crucial part of Step One is collecting content from you. This includes for each page; all copy, all images you want included, your preferred call to actions, shop items and descriptions, specific layout requests etc. (My job is to take all of your awesome content, and make it look great!). Only after I have all of this information can I start creating your dream website.
MOOD BOARD & CUSTOM COLOUR PALETTE
After the questionnaires, creative research and content collection, I will design a mood board. A mood board is an arrangement of images, materials, colors and pieces of text that will project a particular style or concept. In this case, it will project all that we discussed in step one, and should be on the right track for the feel of your board. Setting up the website design for success is to first start with getting the mood of your business right. (3 rounds of revisions). After the mood board has been perfected, I will provide 3 custom color combination options for you to choose from, these will be used throughout your entire website to keep it 'on brand' and cohesive.
This step is a big, but fun, one! Once we have finished creating a solid foundation for your website design, I’ll get straight to work creating custom graphics and building your site! Your website will encompass everything we worked on in the first 2 steps and is based on all of the framework information and content you provided. It will reflect the same style and vibe as the initial mood board. The amount of pages and content depends on our initial agreement. (3 rounds of revisions).
We made it! This is the best part, where I deliver the final versions of everything we have worked so hard on over the last few of weeks. Depending on how tech savvy you are, I will either have a one on one live tutorial with you, or I will send you a few simple tutorial videos on how to operate your new website! Once you're comfortable with making changes to your new website, we're ready to launch! Your brand spankin' new website will officially be live! Pop that bubbly and celebrate your new, beautiful website - we're done!
THE FINE PRINT
Once we have agreed on all the particulars, I require a a 50% non-refundable deposit towards the website design project. This secures your spot and indicates the beginning of the project. The remaining 50% will be required when the website is launched. Any additional products required that aren’t agreed on prior to the start of the project will be billed at an hourly rate. All prices are in USD.
