How Does It Work?
Before booking your project, you will will fill out a detailed questionnaire form to make sure that all of the project goals are covered and we have a timeframe in mind. From there this is how it works:
1. INITIAL CONSULTATION
After you have filled out your questionnaire form, we will set up a phone call, video call, or a place to meet (if you are local). Here we will really get to know each other. I will ask you more and more about your business. From your questionnaire and our consultation I will be able to give you a detailed quote for your project.
2. PROJECT OUTLINE
If we both agree that this is a great fit, I will put together a full quote and a detailed timeline of our project. If the quote and schedule is to your liking, and approved, you can sign the proposal and send it back to me. And don't forget to keep a copy for yourself! Then I will ask you to submit your deposit payment amount (via check or paypal) to hold your project spot. Based on the project total, I do allow project payment plans depending on what you are comfortable with.
3. PROCESS + SCHEDULE
Once the deposit payment has been paid and the terms have been signed, I will send over a detailed schedule for our project. It will include the entire process from Start -->Finish. This will note when you can expect your designs, mockups, and final files. I will also include due dates for your "homework" (questionnaires, branding details, website content, etc.) This is a great tool to stay in communication and on track.
4. YOUR HOMEWORK
Yes, there is some work involved for this process on your end. I will ask that you finish my branding questionnaire. If fitting, I will ask that you create a detailed pinterest board and share it with me. This is a great way for me to see you style, your favorite color choices, and the things that catch you eye.
This is where it really gets FUN. I want to know what drives your style, your business, and maybe even your wardrobe choices. This brand and business is who you are, so it's my job to bring it to life. The best way for me to do that is to put together a color palette and inspiration board to make sure we are heading in the right direction. Once approved, the project can progress. Please approve within 7 business days. After approval, you will receive your first logo variation to review. You can have up to 2 revisions, just to make sure you love it. After the logo is finalized, you will expect your full branding board (logo, secondary logo, sub/watermark, patterns) so you can see your full design come together.
6. BRAND COMPLETIONS
Once the branding board is completed, we can finalize your logo and branding elements. At this point, I will be able to continue your brand throughout your social pages, website, and print materials. I will send over your final invoice for you project, and once completed I will send you your final files.
7. WEBSITE DESIGN
At this point, we have your brand and style established. I will begin designing your website after I receive all your content, files, and images. I will share a Google Drive folder with you so that you can share your content with me. After I complete the initial setup and design, you will be able to view your website. It is at this point where you will be able to make notes and request edits.
8. FOLLOW UP
Your website is a crucial part of your business, and I want to absolutely make sure that it fits all of your needs and also, that you love it. Not just like, LOVE.
I welcome you to schedule a time for us to go over your new website and let me walk you through how to edit and maintain your website. We will also discuss any changes or edits you may have. I will also be able to better explain the functionality and use of your site.
9. THE LAUNCH
Once your final payment has been made and the tutorial process has been completed, your site is ready to be launched! Once you are ready we will transfer the site over to your hosting and domain. Please allow up to 48 for this transfer. I will allow requests and edits up to one week of your site launch. All requests after that will be billed separately.
Website maintenance after your website has been launched is also an option. Feel free to contact me for more information.
