Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a website cost? How much does a logo cost?

I have standard costs for logos and starter websites, but each website is different depending on the needs and purpose of the business.  In those instances, I use my standard project fee and estimate based on the features.  A brochure type website will have a different cost than an e-commerce one.  I have costs on the portfolio pages of each type of design projects.  For websites, I do payments in thirds with a deposit, middle, and final before the website is transferred over to your domain.  For logos and projects under $500, I ask for a 50% deposit and final before the final files are given to the client.

I am now offering a monthly payment plan for websites.  Please contact me for the details.

 

How do you work?
I normally start with an in-person or phone meeting if you are local to chat about your needs.  If you are out of state or town, we can talk via phone or Zoom with my webcam if you like “in person” meetings.  This is to get to know you.  Once I know your needs, I will email you a written estimate of the work.  If you are happy with my estimate and want to begin, I can send you a contract for a website, invoice for deposit, and a creative brief.  Once I have all three including a signed contract, I begin working on your project.  Smaller projects under $500 I normally do not use a contract but refer you to my general terms page.

 

 

 
Logos I draw by hand three rough concepts for you to choose from.  Once one is chosen I work it up in my design software.  The second stage is black and white so you can approve font and design.  After you approve, then comes color and texture. and final logo. At that point, I invoice for the remaining 50% and package up all your files for print and the web.
 
When designing a website I use your creative direction to design a mockup in my design software.  Once complete, I send to you for approval.  After approval, I build a live version on my hosting where you can begin feeding me content to layout on each page. With maintenance or other projects I work hourly and proof along the way.    

 

Do you provide hosting for websites?

I can provide hosting for a monthly fee, but recommend you register your own domain.  I do like working with Godaddy.com if you want to get your own hosting account.  You can get a hold of them for customer service 24/7 and they do not charge you for asking them to walk you through pretty complicated things like migrating a website to them or other items.  Yearly hosting is around $120 a year and domain registration is around $12.00.  If you need me to do these for you I would be happy to obtain them under your name. 

 

I need help with writing my content. Do you provide copywriting?

 

I do not provide copywriting but I can refer you to some awesome writers that can help you create your content.  This would be a fee outside of my own.  I would recommend getting professional copy written because this can greatly speed up the length it takes to complete your website or project.

Are copyright free photos included in your project fees?

Yes, I have several excellent free sources of photos.  You can always have me use your own photos as well.  If you find something on a paid stock photo website you would like to use, you would be responsible for purchasing.

 

 

How long will my project take to be completed?

Websites take about a month or a month and a half depending on whether you are able to give me page content.  If I am not able to obtain content for your pages in a timely manner your website will take longer.  Logos can take about two weeks, sometimes even a week if we are really able to focus on your brand. 

 

 

Do I own the copyright of my website or logo? How does that work?

 Once final payment is made you own the copyright to your website, design, or logo.
