website design & multimedia production

Many people want to present their work, but dread the prospect of creating and running a website. The cost of hiring a professional web designer can be as daunting as the idea of creating the images, text and videos that make a website shine. I am able to customize professionally designed Squarespace templates so that they represent you, with the right color palette, style and features to achieve your goals. Along with the design I'll take care of your domain registration, social media integration, website copy, photography and video content with flexible plans that start at a basic level with 5-7 pages and content you provide and grow to more complex websites of up to 10-20 pages, with eCommerce in addition to social media integration, writing, video and photography.

I also offer tutorials to show you how to manage your website after it's built, or if you prefer I can maintain your website management on an ongoing and renewable basis.

To kick things off, send me an email describing your needs, and we'll arrange a time to talk over possibilities, pricing and plans. I look forward to learning about your interests and work, and supporting your vision with a beautiful digital platform.


 

The following Squarespace samples show a range of design and organizational approaches. During an up to one-hour consultation (book Caroline by email) we'll discuss your project and the right approach for you based on your needs, budget and goals. I will customize these designs to reflect your personality, mission, voice, vision and purpose, with review sessions and reiterations until you are completely satisfied.

Design plans are flexible and modular. They can grow in both scope and price with the following combinations of content and options. 

step 1: choose your domain and subscription

Domain Name Registration.....$20.00 - $30.00 /Domain
Squarespace Annual Subscription.......$144.00 (Basic) OR $216.00 (with eCommerce)  
Domain email..............................$50.00 [Optional]

step 2: choose your DESIGN PLAN

Basic Plan.................................................................$750.00 (Includes registration, design and organization of supplied media). 
Basic + Core Content...........................................$2500.00 (Basic + I provide website copy, images, a welcome video, social media integration and tutorials.)
Level 1 Communities & Organizations..........$5000.00 (For complex sites. Includes writing, photography, a welcome video and tutorials.)
Level 2 Communities & Organizations..........$7K-12K  (For more complex sites. Includes writing, photography and multiple videos plus tutorials.)

Step 3: design and review

I'll draw up a schedule with checkpoints to review the design progress and content production, and I'll keep in touch with updates, staying responsive to any questions you have along the way. Initially I'll need your cooperation to receive images and content to fill out the website, or if we are starting from scratch without visual content we'll make a plan around creating the images and sharing the information I'll need to write your website copy. Typically Basic and Basic Plus sites take 4-6 weeks to complete, and Level 1 or Level 2 sites can take several months.

Step 4: maintenance

After your website is built and content completed, I can offer tutorials to help you take over the wheel, or we can decide on a plan to keep me in the loop for adding or changing content and addressing any technical needs. Tutorials are covered all except in the Basic plan, and ongoing arrangements can be worked out at the point of hand off.
