I’m so thrilled that you are here!
I am absolutely honored that you are considering hiring me for your Website and/or Branding Design! I know how important it is to have a professional and beautiful design to represent your passion, and I invite you to learn a bit more about my Design Process.
I work very hard to create a seamless design experience from start to finish, and I am so excited to serve your business needs. Over the years, I have tailored my workflow to be a collaborative process, and your feedback is welcome at any time!
Let’s start by hearing what a few of my clients are saying about their new designs as well as the design process.
The Design Process
The Design Process starts with completion of a Design Proposal, Contract, and Invoice. The final step to secure your project start date is to place a 50% deposit.
Once your project start date is secured, you will be sent a Design Questionnaire to fill out. This is the fun part! You may also create and submit a Pinterest board to me as well, but this step is not required.
I will setup a client portal for you to access, where you can view our documents and emails at any time.
The next step is for you to send your website content (text + images for each page) over to me. I will setup a folder for you to add these items to using google drive. Easy peasy!
On our project start date, I will begin the design! It usually takes about 1-2 weeks for me to send over the initial design and/or demo website for you to view.
We will go through up to 3 rounds of revisions until you approve the final design.
Four weeks after the project start date or once the final design is approved (whichever comes first), the balance will be due on your project.
Final files will be delivered to you. If you purchased a website design, your website will now be handed over to you (woohoo!) and installed on your hosting account (if using WordPress).

Website Platforms- WordPress & Showit
If you are purchasing a website design, you will have the option of using WordPress or Showit. Both platforms are wonderful, and I would be happy to discuss the two options with you if you are undecided.
When using WordPress, you will need to purchase hosting for your WordPress website (see Flywheel above). If you are using Showit, you will complete the billing subscription for your website when it is completed and I turn it over to you.
Other Questions or Concerns?
If you have any other specific questions about the Design Process, please view the FAQs page or email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to work with you soon!
