General

How does payment work?

A 50% non-refundable deposit is required before I start working. This secures your spot and indicates that you’re serious about your project. The remaining balance will be required once I finish the project.

Any additional fees made for fonts, themes or other third party fees, will be added to the final invoice. All prices are displayed in AUD.

Can you get this done for me today?

This depends on the project and the situation.

Yes. If we have worked together before and you only need some small refinements or changes.

No. If you want to start a brand new project. These projects need to be booked in at least a month in advance to prevent disappointment. My clients put a lot of effort into their project beforehand, so it would be unfair to set them aside because of a rush job.

Can you design ... for me?

Yes. Please get in touch so I can create a custom quote for you. I love designing packaging, stamps, brochures, signage, pens, letterheads, social media graphics, books, and much more.

Branding

Social media materials

Together we will decide which social media platform is best for your brand’s strategy. 

If Facebook proves to be the best tool, I will create a profile picture and a cover photo.

If it’s Instagram, I will design Instagram highlights icons and 3 posts – these can be easily edited by you in Canva. 

Can I choose different add-ons?

Yes, you can. Please get in touch so I can create a custom quote for you. I love designing packaging, stamps, brochures, signage, pens, letterheads, social media graphics, books, and much more.

Do you print my designs?

No. At the moment I do not provide a printing service. I can, however, recommend print companies depending on your needs.

What do I need to have ready before we start?

Before I can start working on your branding project, I will need your design questionnaire filled in and returned. You must have a general idea of your goal, target audience, products and services, styles you like or dislike and your business name.

What if I'm not happy after 3 refinements?

I am almost certain that you will be happy with your new design. Every step of the way, I’ll ensure that we’re both on the same page. It’s very important for you to communicate your idea in the best and most detailed way. Don’t worry, there are a lot of tools to help you with this.

If you do happen to require further refinements, these will be charged at $30 per hour.

Website design

Why WordPress?

“Wordpress is, by far, the most popular open source Content Management System, used by approximately 75 million websites.”.

I’ve always been working with WordPress and maybe it has a bit of a longer learning curve than other platforms but I’d say it’s totally worth it. It’s free to install and upgrade and has thousands of plugins and templates to choose from. It’s a platform that will allow future growth and has a lot of room for expansion.

Can you design more than 5 pages?

Yes. You’re always welcome to add more pages. Additional pages will be charged $50 AUD each.  

Can you take my website photography?

No. I am a designer and photography is a job on its own. You’ll need to get in touch with a (local) photography service if your website needs hi-res imagery.

I don't know how to purchase a domain name.

I offer assistance during our complimentary 30-minute consultation.

The costs of a domain name and hosting platform vary depending on your chosen provider. I recommend GoDaddy as one of the easiest and most affordable providers with an awesome customer service may you have any questions in the future.

Can you write my website copy?

No. I am a designer and writing your website copy would be a job on its own. However, Wordfetti does a great job at creating content and I would recommend you check them out.

What do I need to have ready before we start?

Clients must have imagery and text ready to go by the agreed upon deadline. If this is not the case, we would have to reschedule the project to a later date.

Having your hosting and domain name ready to go by our deadline would be awesome but is not necessary. If you need help with setting up, I offer assistance during our complimentary consultation.
