How much do I need to invest?

The cost to create your graphic design or website project will depend on the details and complexity.

New Websites & Website Redesigns

Generally, a new or redesigned website will have a fixed project fee that can range from $1500-$4000, most standard websites run of around $2,500. Once we talk about your website needs, I can make a proposal outlining the details discussed. If you accept it, the contract will state what is included in your website, the agreed fixed rate and the estimated project timeline. Additional services that are billed hourly at the standard $75/hr rate include:

  • Custom CSS for Squarespace, Wix or any other platform that allows custom CSS
  • Mailchimp Set-up and Custom Mailchimp HTML Templates
  • Setting up Acuity Scheduling or other scheduling system
  • Ongoing updates of website content, custom requests or troubleshooting

Custom WordPress websites require the purchase of hosting service and a domain name. These account fees are not included in the project quote, although I will be able to assist in the configuration once you have paid their fees. Hosting company and domain name registrar recommendations can be provided if needed.

Custom Squarespace websites requires subscription to one of their pricing plans. This fee is not included in the project quote.

Graphic Design Services

Branding packages range between $1000-3000 fixed project fee. A full package includes logo design, fonts, colors and any other brand collateral. Individual brand elements can be purchased such as a logo, marketing ad, poster or brochure will be quoted per project, and more complex or ongoing projects are billed hourly.

Do you offer a payment plan?

Yes, a 50% deposit at contract signing, 25% at design approval and remaining balance due upon project completion.

How long will it take?

An estimated project timeline will be sent as part of the contract, average time to complete a design or website can range from 2 to 6 weeks although can be as long as 12 weeks or more if it is a large project.

If your website is a WordPress website, Yes, once the website is complete, balance has been paid and the files are on your hosting account, you are the owner of all content and files.

Yes, your website will be built to be responsive and adapt to any mobile device screen as well as desktops, laptops and tablets.

Yes, once your website it complete, we can record a Zoom meeting to go over your “how-to” questions. Although if you find you are too busy to manage your website, I also offer monthly management plans where I can take care of updates for you.

This is your website’s web address that is registered separately or in conjunction with your hosting. It is also referred as a website URL: www.mybusiness.com. Registration fees are generally renewed each year. If needed, I can provide recommendations for domain name registrars.

This is the public file server space that is rented for your website to be publicly accessible. Web hosting accounts generally need to be renewed annually although some companies offer discounts for multiple year purchases. If needed, I can provide hosting company recommendations.

Yes, I also offer 3 levels of maintenance plans where I can take care of content updates for you as well as maintain core code, handle any troubleshooting or complete technical management tasks.

I am located in the California, Sacramento region and work remotely. If you are local to this area, it is possible to meet in person for a design briefing session, otherwise we can work together over Zoom.

You can connect with me on LinkedIn, Github or visit my Clutch profile.

Yes, I do! Although, this would be a separate service and it would be best to start here before commencing a website project. Logo design is part of a branding package that includes defining and designing your key brand elements: logo, color scheme, typography, any design components and your brand guidelines.

Most clients provide the images to be used in their project. Although, if you need me to curate images for your project, I can source royalty-free images. Or if needed I can recommend freelance photographers that you can contact.

Yes, I create vector illustrations. This would be a separate service and can be added to your project quote if needed. Or if you need any other graphic design service once the initial project is complete, I can quote this additional work separately.

No, unfortunately I do not offer this service. Most clients submit their own content. If needed, I can provide recommendations to freelancers I’ve worked with.

Possibly, although in most cases, no. It has been my experience that the best use of time is to build the website anew to make sure I’m not wasting any time sorting out someone else’s code that may or may not be straightforward.

Yes, I am open to working with your team.

I’m certainly open to having a discussion to see if working together would be advantageous for both parties.
