Graphic Design FAQ
If I like a premade Facebook cover but would like it customised for my website/etsy/etc, can you do this for me?
We’ll discuss your website requirements, from the look and style of your site to the kind of functionality you require. Do you want to provide information about your services and provide a quote/contact form? Integrate your site with your social media? Sell products? Display your photography? Offer a way for clients to book photography sessions online? Have a blog? We’ll discuss the colour scheme and whether you require custom graphics for website and/or facebook.
Armed with detailed information of what you need, I can then source the kind of theme and plugins((think of them as website apps to improve site functionality)) required to meet your needs. Bear in mind that I customise pre-made themes and do not create them from scratch myself((you can expect to pay a developer thousands for that)).
If I cannot source the exact theme/functionality to suit your needs, I will discuss alternatives with you.
I will then give you an estimate based on the length of time I feel it will likely take to set your site up and, if applicable, create your graphics, and the 3rd party cost of the theme & plugins required. Bear in mind this quote is an estimate only, as – unless agreed otherwise – I work on an hourly rate rather than a flat fee. The total bill will depend on factors such as how much customisation has been made to the original theme, how many revisions, changes or additional content you have required along the way, and time spent in correspondence beyond working out the initial design brief.
No. However I can advise you on how to register your domain name and assist you in finding a good web hosting company that meets your needs. It’s not a scary process – I promise!
For instance, my sites are hosted through netneeds.co.nz – I’ve been with them for several years now and have never had any problems with their hosting. They also offer the most competitive prices I’ve yet found. Another hosting company I’ve found reasonable are webslice.co.nz
