Have a question about my services or how I work? Here are some common questions I'm asked.
How long have you been a website and graphic designer?
I’ve been working professionally as a website and graphic designer for 11 years since leaving college.
Do you have a studio?
I primarily work from my home design studio but have a shared studio space, with my photographer partner, for meetings.
Who are your usual clients?
Over the years, I have worked with a number of clients from every kind of industry; from builders and community groups to photographers and restaurants.
The majority of my clients are now primarily female small business owners looking to set up their own businesses. That doesn’t mean I don’t work with men or other types of business, because I do, and I’m happy to do so.
Do you offer meetings?
When we begin working together we'll arrange a initial consultation. If you are in the Falkirk area, I can arrange a face-to-face meetup at my Larbert studio Alternatively, we can have a chat by email, phone or Skype.
Why should I work with you?
My passion is helping small businesses thrive online and offline. I want you to succeed and grow your business into a bustling success.
It is incredibly important to me that we build a relationship that lasts so that we can work closely together.
How will a new website help my small business?
Your website is your most important marketing asset. It is open 24/7 to the entire world. For that reason, your website needs to work for you, not against you. If your website doesn’t attract your ideal customers and make them want to buy from you then you need to consider why.
When you work with me, we will partner up to design and build a website that suits you and your business, tells your story and attracts your perfect customers. If you are unsure about investing in a website, please get in touch for a chat.
Is it just websites that you design?
No, I also offer branding and logo design as well. I aim to be a complete design solution for small businesses, as I know how frustrating it can be to have multiple people working for you.
For that reason, I set up my design studio to provide everything from logos, business cards, brochures, social media graphics, banners, full branding and website design.
Due to my experience in website design, I provide a consultancy service to small business owners who are unsure how to get the best from their website.
Is there a timeframe?
Yes, depending on the service you are looking for and the scope of the project.
Timeframes are typically:-
Logo design and branding - 2 weeks
Website design - 3 to 4 weeks
Consulting - 1 week
These times are only a guideline and will depend on feedback and how quickly you can send me content etc.
What types of payment do you accept and do you offer payment plans?
I accept bank transfer and PayPal or Stripe (for international clients). Yes, I offer payment plans for large projects.
A 50% deposit is due before work will commence, this is to secure your spot in my diary and the final balance is due on completion of work.
