Squarespace Website Design

I believe designing a website is akin to creating a window with a unique view into you and your work — a place for you to settle in, get comfortable and be totally you while you connect with your people, your audience, and your work. I want to work with you to create a home for your work, your ideas and your customers and create a website that’s as unique as you are.


 
 

“Professional, magical designer. That’s what Liz is. I could not have been more impressed with her work in designing and building my new website. Not only did she understand immediately the look and feel I was asking for, she seamlessly incorporated my brand elements into the overall design while building a website structure that allowed for the flexibility I was asking for. ”

Barb Skoog, Cloud Artist

 

Where the process begins . . .

The website design process begins with you. Yup, you read that right. I begin the design work on your site once I’ve received all your copy {that’s all the fabulous words you’ve written about you and your business—or the words you’ve hired a copywriter to create} and all your images. These are the things that form the foundation of your website.

You are the one who knows your business, you’re the one who is most intimately knowledgeable about the work you do in the world and so you’re the one who can best express who you are, what you do and how you want to be seen on the web.

Need a recommendation for a great copy writer? Contact me! Need help finding images that will represent you and your work? We can build that into the budget for your site.

“Liz is an absolute pleasure to work with. She has a really natural-feeling process that utilizes a Pinterest board to gather ideas to make sure she’s on the right visual track. She is also incredibly intuitive, somehow understanding exactly what I wanted and though the final site wasn’t what I’d been imagining — it was BETTER! I highly recommend her and would absolutely work with her again.”

Website Design FAQs

Can you transfer my Wordpress site to Squarespace?

In a word, yes.That said, you need to know that occasionally the content doesn’t always transfer cleanly. Much of the time it goes smoothly, but sometimes blog posts don't import and will need to be formatted and cleaned up on your own time. Sometimes images transfer over in a block which means they aren’t really on your Squarespace site they’re embedded as code and will need to be re-uploaded. We can look at test exporting your Wordpress site to get an idea of how much will need to be cleaned up.

Do you provide Website Design Refresh services?

I’m happy to provide you with a price to do a Website Refresh. Need a few pages fluffed and updated? Contact me with the details of what you’re looking for and I’ll provide you with a quote.

Are revisions included in the process?

Yes! Together, we’ll refine every page of your website to create a beautiful home for your work and a site you love so that you feel proud and confident when sharing your site with potential clients {+ friends and family}.

What if we go through all the revisions and the website still isn't working for me?

I believe doing the research I do — which includes your Client Intake Questionnaire, creating a secret Pinterest Board where you can share images that speak to you and your brand, and talking with you about all your wants and wishes for a website — will get us most of the way to a website that will fit you. I want to go deep with you and your work and to make that happen I count on you to have answered all my questions as authentically and as fully as you possibly can. Good design always starts with good communication and I’m so there with the questions and the thoughtful analysis and in the end, wanting to provide you with a website that's better than you could have imagined.

Do you provide maintenance to my site once it’s launched? 

I’ll provide you with tutorials to maintain your site and make any changes you might need on an on-going basis and  I’m also available for questions 2 weeks after we launch your new site as part of our contract / agreement. I DO offer a retainer service for website updates, changes and add-ons, you can find out more about my Design Package services here.
