Mobile friendly website design

I design websites using the Squarespace platform and am passionate about recommending this to my clients as it's easy and intuitive to use.

You don't have to worry about software updates, installing plug-ins, setting up hosting or other techie-stuff. It also means you're not beholden to an expensive developer every time you want to update your site.

Every project I take on is different and is always tailored to your specific needs but to give you need an idea of costs to see to see if it fits with your budget, a basic website starts at £975

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS SQUARESPACE?
Squarespace is a website design and content management system which powers millions of websites worldwide. It has the ideal combination of ease-of-use, functionality & great design and they have topnotch customer service. All Squarespace websites are responsive (meaning they automatically adjust to different browsers including mobile phones, tablets, etc.) and can be updated using any computer. You don't have to remember to do software updates, install and maintain security plug-ins or worry about hosting. It all just works - beautifully, and makes you look like a real pro!

I ALREADY HAVE A SITE - WILL YOU UPDATE IT?
I currently only work on the Squarespace platform so I can redesign your site using that. However, you can import data from Wordpress, Blogger, Tumblr, Etsy, Shopify and Big Cartel, so do get in touch and we can have a chat about your particular situation. 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Typically sites will take from 4 to 12 weeks from the start of the project. This will partly depend on how prepared and available you are to provide content and feedback.

HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
I require 30% deposit to confirm your place on my calendar. The remainder will be payable when the design has been approved.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER EXPENSES I NEED TO BE AWARE OF?
Yes - your annual Squarespace hosting will cost between £220 for a business site, up to £430 for a feature rich e-commerce site (prices include VAT). This includes hosting, site security, automatic software updates & real-person customer service support and I believe it is worth every penny. For e-commerce sites, there are also credit card transaction fees payable on all transactions, these will depend on your package.  

You will also need to pay for your domain name. This is typically around £10 per year.

WHAT IF I NEED HELP AFTERWARDS
I will give you everything you need to run and update your website yourself and you get email and phone support for the designated period. After that, I'll happily make any changes or updates at my normal maintenance fee of £40 per hour, I also offer a monthly maintenance package.
