The Design Process

1

CONSULTATION

After you've read through this page, you can schedule a free design consultation. You'll be able to ask me any questions you have and we can get to know each other and the project you want to work on.

2

PROPOSAL

Once we've talked, I’ll pull together a custom proposal with project outlines, your goals and quotes for each package. If you want to book, I’ll send you my availability, along with a contract and invoice.

3

HOMEWORK & CALL

Yep, you have a bit of homework to do! You will need to create an inspiration board for your brand on Pinterest, fill in a detailed design questionnaire and create your content before we get started. 

4

BRAND STRATEGY

I'll start the doing a deep dive into your homework and the homework you’ve sent me to create a thorough and intentional brand strategy. This will include your mood board & colour palette.

 

5

BRANDING

Then we move on to the branding concept process. I work on one concept approach which means I create and send one full brand concept based on your brand strategy. You then get two refinement rounds.

6

COLLATERAL

You will get to choose four branded collateral items before we work together which will suit your working process. You can choose from business cards, packaging, graphics and many more!

7

WEBSITE

I will create a mockup of your home page for you to approve and once this is done I will create a live functional test site for you to play around with. You will get two revision rounds to make sure it is perfect.

8

LAUNCH

Once we have completed the process and you are completely happy with the designs, you will make your final payment and then I will send all of the final files. We can then have a 1-1 training session to make sure you know how to use your new website!

*Some of these steps may not apply. It depends on whether your package includes them.*

FAQs

Who do you work with?

I love working with creatives, bloggers and business owners to create beautiful designs which will reflect your personality and help your business to grow in the way you want it to.

How much are your packages?

After we’ve chatted, I quote on a project basis as all projects are different and require different things! Once we have decided what you’d like to include in your package and how I can best help your business, I’ll send a proposal with some options for working together.

How does payment work?

All projects have split payments plans. This depends on the quote for the project but will generally be a monthly payment up until we have finished working together. The first payment is taken as a non-refundable deposit to book the slot.

What platform do you use to build the websites?

I currently design websites on Squarespace, Wordpress or Shopify. If you’re unsure which is the best fit for you, we can chat about it on our call! Each of them are great in very different ways.

Do I need to buy a domain or hosting before working with you?

For any website, you will need a domain but you only need hosting for Wordpress, as Squarespace and Shopify come with their own integrated hosting. No pressure to set this up before we work together and I can help you with that along the way!

What is included in the branding package?

A general branding package includes a main logo design, an alternative design, submark designs, a font system, colour palette, patterns and branded graphics. If you like, you can also include extra collateral items such as templates, packaging, business cards or anything that helps your business!

How quickly can I work with you?

My design slots are usually booked a couple of months in advance but depending on my availability I could book you in sooner, let me know if you have a strict deadline and I will see what I can do! 

How will we communicate?

I use a project management tool called Asana which we can use to communicate, set tasks and transfer files. If you are a bit nervous about using a new tool, don't worry! I will provide you with a tutorial video before we get started so you know your way around.

I loved how streamlined your process was from start to finish, as well as being hugely creative and efficient at getting a brilliant job done. you've been a dream, so can't thank you enough!!

 

What happens after the consultation?

If you decide you want to work with me, you'll pay a non-refundable 20% deposit to secure your design slot and you'll need to sign my contract. After that's done, you will be booked in and informed of the next steps in the process!
