Hire me

If you’re considering hiring me to design your website, here is some useful information about my process.

How I work

I work part-time for Rosiest Design, when I’m not performing as a classical soprano, so I usually accept one or two projects per month.

Update: During the COVID-19 lockdown I find myself with more time on my hands, and am currently accepting new work.

Consultation

I offer a no-obligation consultation before any project starts. This could be a face-to-face meeting in London, or telephone/Skype call.

Contract

Before we start work I will send you a contract and an invoice for the initial deposit.

Preparing your content

It’s always best to have your content ready before I start any design work. This is because your images and style can hugely influence the look and feel of your website.

I ask that you have at least draft copy for all the pages of your website. I will set up a shared Dropbox/Google drive folder for all content. Documents should be prepared as follows:

  • Copy: prepare as word documents (.docx) or text files (.txt)
  • Images: saved as .jpg files
  • Audio: saved as .mp3 files or links to Spotify/iTunes/Amazon/Google Play
  • Video: saved as .mp4 files or links to YouTube

Development

I will develop your site locally on my computer.

Final stages

When your site is ready for the final testing stage I will upload it to a development staging site. You will be able to access it via a unique URL and check that the site works in the way you intended. Once various cross-browser/device checks have been carried out I will move the site live onto your domain.

Fees

Below is a rough idea of my fees:

  • WordPress audit – £50
  • Website redesign – prices start at £700
  • Website amendments – £35/hour
  • Music typesetting – £35/hour
