Hello! Thank you for choosing me to be on this creative journey with you.
My goal is to create well-thought-out strategic visuals that will take your business to the next level. I want you to feel confident with your new brand + site and excited to share!
I use Squarespace to design websites because they’re easy to update and maintain which allows you to focus on your work rather than making sure your website is working. If you’re new to Squarespace you will receive 20% off your first annual plan because I am a Squarespace Circle Member.
Time Frame + Hours
Projects generally take 4 - 8 weeks to complete so our time is limited and I ask that you commit 100% to the schedule.
I work Monday - Thursday 9 am - 5:00 pm PST and Fridays 9 am - 12 pm PST. The best way to reach me is through email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions that can’t be answered through email please contact me to schedule a 15 min phone chat.
Please make sure your questionnaires are completed before your start date or your project will have to wait until my next availability.
Brand Photo Shoot
Brand photos that truly capture you and your unique brand story.
My specialty is natural light environmental portraits where I photograph you in your environment doing what you do. I believe great photography is in the details and the moment between moments. I seek texture and beautiful lighting when photographing you and/or your products.
You will receive more information about your brand shoot and scheduling options during the first week of your project.
Here are some more tips to consider before your shoot.
The Design Process
Once your project begins I’ll email you each week and let you know where I’m at in the process. It’s important to respond to emails as soon as possible so we stay on track time-wise.
The first week of your project is my “information and inspiration” time. I dive deep into your questionnaires and gather all the information I need to create the creative direction presentation. The presentation is sent as a pdf accompanied with a video to explain my thoughts and choices. Once the creative direction is approved I’ll start designing the brand.
Your brand identity includes the primary logo, secondary options with tagline treatments, colors, patterns, business card design, note card, Facebook profile image + banner, typography palette, mockups, images + type overlays, and design treatments. It will be sent as a pdf accompanied with a video to explain my thoughts and choices. Once you review it we’ll go over any edits and finalize the brand identity.
Next I start the website design. I’ll import your content and layout the homepage then send you a “live” proof to make sure we’re on the same page design-wise before I move forward. Whether we are using stock or photos I’ve shot I will curate a selection I think works best for the site.
After everything is designed and the site is ready to unlock + launch I package up all of your files and send the final invoice. Once paid, I send you a link with all of your final files folder, unlock the site, and transfer ownership to you!
Now it’s time to celebrate and spread the word on social media!
