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 or being a mum, so I usually accept one or two projects per month.

Consultation

I offer a no-obligation consultation before any project starts. This could be a face-to-face meeting (if you’re lucky enough to live in sunny Nelson 🌞) or phone/video 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/Vimeo

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.
