Graphic dEsign FAQs
Q: Can I hire you to do my web design as well as a photo shoot?
Of course! I actually recommend it to my web design clients that if they do not have stellar photos for their new website design to add a photo shoot to their web package or to hire another photographer to take professional photos of their business, workplace, staff, products, etc.
Q: What does "branding" include?
Branding is the overall look and feel of your business. This includes all designs in your business: logo, marketing materials, web designs, and even the way you present yourself to your clients. If you want to hire me to design your brand that starts with a logo design. From there I use elements of your logo throughout the rest of any printed material designs and web design.
Branding generally begins with questions such as:
Who are you? What is your business name? Who is your target audience? What problem do you want to solve? What makes you different from other businesses?
Q: Do you use web templates?
In short, yes! I prefer using website templates with Squarespace.com as a base for all my web design clients. Each template is very basic in design, I work hard to make your website unique while using a template as a starting point. Custom coding is sometimes included based on desired design elements.
Starting with a website template helps me make your web design timeline fast. I can focus on design elements instead of coding a website from scratch.
Q: If you use squarespace templates, won't my site look like everyone else that uses that template?
No! Like I stated in the previous question, I work hard to make your website unique while using a template as a starting point. To start I choose a template based on how it functions and compare that with what you are wanting to portray on your site. Once I decide on the best template for functionality I customize it with unique layouts, graphics, and even custom illustration.
Q: How long does it take to design a logo or website?
Once we meet in person or talk on the phone about your web project and a contract is signed, web design from start to finish generally takes 2-4 weeks with revisions. What makes a web design project go faster is a well prepared client. Having images, content, and basic knowledge of the pages you want to have on your website ready to go makes the design process much faster.
Q: Can I edit my website when it's set up?
Yes! This is one of the main reasons I use Squarespace as a web host & template provider. Once your website is finished and launched I like to set up a training meeting to walk through basic editing steps. I teach you how to add text, blogs, images, etc. If want a major update in the design or functionality of your website that's when I recommend getting in contact with me, otherwise small changes are easily done by you.
Q: What is the design process?
Q: Why don't you photograph weddings?
At this point in my career I wanted to pursue other types of photography as my creative outlet. I didn't thrive on the actual wedding day craziness, though I did love the weddings I photographed in the past. I still absolutely love photographing the bride & groom on a separate day of the wedding for formals/bridals/first look & engagements!
