Common feelings

Can you relate?

Have you got an amazing business idea but don’t know where to start with your brand and website?

Perhaps you and your business have grown but your brand and website hasn’t followed suit?

Are you fed up of cowboy coders who leave you in the lurch with a website that’s impossible to update?

Have you tried building your own website but realised it’s not quite as simple as it looks?

Perhaps you’ve got no idea where to start and find it all so daunting and overwhelming?

There is an alternative.

Common questions

It’s normal to have questions.

I’m always happy to help so if you have a question which isn’t answered here, please get in touch.

I love to partner with people who have big ideas. Those who value design. Those who are willing to invest in themselves and their business. Those looking for a creative partner and a collaborative approach. Those who are as committed to creating amazing experiences as I am.
Typically no. My clients buy an end result and the experience which delivers that. With a clear, transparent approach, you'll know the overall investment up front, and we'll both be clear on our deadlines and expectations.
You're part of the whole process and we get to collaborate on creating a brand/website that is exactly as you want it, and uniquely you. I won't be happy unless you're happy. You'll be heard throughout the briefing and feedback process, giving you a steer and an expectation of what you'll receive back.
I take every precuation to make sure that you feel included and heard throughout the process, and then I respond to this with my creativity. It's my job to interpret your vision through design. That said, design is subjective so there might be times when you don't quite like certain things, and I'll respond to that through the refinements and feedback process in order to make sure that you love the result. I've never yet had an experience where I've not been able to arrive at a happy end result for a client, and I take great pride in that.
It all starts with a conversation. I've found that the best results come when I work on both the branding and website with you. But you never know, perhaps you already have an amazing brand. Get in touch and we can see if we're the right fit for each other.
Of course. I completely understand that you'll want to refine your website as your business evolves and grows. Following the launch of your website, we'll arrange a training session where I'll show you how to make edits to your website through an easy-to-use interface, and answer any questions you may have.
A logo is one of the key outputs of my branding package. Whilst logos provide a tangible way to express *some* of the essence and characteristics of your brand, I have found that the best branding results come from gaining clarity around your uniqueness, ideal clients, and visual style, and then translating this into a wider brand strategy and identity. For this reason, I only offer logos as part of my overall branding experience.
I request a 20% deposit to secure the studio time for your project. A further 40% payment is due at the commencement of the project and the remaining 40% is due before delivery of final files, or before your website goes live.
Please get in touch today to start the ball rolling. I'm typically booked up around two months in advance which gives you time to work through my questions and briefing documents in the mean time.
