Get a professional website that looks and feels like you.
I always, always, recommend working with a professional graphic designer for your business branding if it’s at all possible with your budget. In a lot of situations, I’d recommend paying a professional to create a brand and then building your first website yourself. But if it makes more sense for you to allocate budget to your website, I offer basic branding to clients as well.
It can feel near impossible to figure out where to start with colors and fonts on your own. I’ll work with you to get a sense of your style and vision for the site and choose fonts for the site that convey the right feeling to your ideal client. When I hand off the site to you, you’ll have all your branding set up (and a style guide) so everything looks good without any extra effort on your end. You’ll get a website designer’s eye and experience without paying for a full brand designer. I don’t do logo design, but I’ve worked with logo designers to make sure we have what we need for the site if you’re developing the two simultaneously.
How It Works
- We’ll start with an initial onboarding meeting to discuss your business, your ideal client, and your website goals.
- We’ll pick a platform to build your site on (usually Squarespace or WordPress) and we’ll discuss pricing and maintenance.
- I’ll send you a questionnaire to gather info on your preferred colors, fonts, styles, etc.
- I’ll ask you for 5-10 pieces of inspiration (ideally websites, but you’re welcome to send photos, printed materials, and color palettes you love too).
- We’ll work together to create a rough sketch for your site, then we’ll choose a template to start building from.
- I’ll generate a couple of color palettes that ensure proper contrast levels for ADA accessibility.
- I’ll send my recommended fonts based on your inspiration.
- You’ll choose final font and color options, and I’ll add them to the site.
- You’ll provide images and copy (the text of the website) for the site, and I’ll add them to the site.
- I’ll create a style guide on the site and let you know how you can edit the styles if you decide to later on.
- I’ll build out your home page and a template for an interior page, then I’ll show you how to edit the site, share some best practices, launch the site, and hand you the keys.
I quote every project individually since every business owner has different needs, but my basic website build + branding starts at $2,300 paid over two or four payments.
