ABOUT TRUE COLORS BRANDING & DESIGN STUDIO
Why bother with a website?
I am a Squarespace web designer (for so many reasons, I heart Squarespace), sharing with you—woman of amazing gifts! the ones the world’s been waiting for!—a fun, inspired, and collaborative journey for your project’s development from story to service, post-it notes and trello boards to shine-y, websites and print materials.
Here at true colors design studio, creating a website is not just something you to do check off your business to-do list. A website is a visual expression of who you are. And more.
Your website is really a culmination of THE EVERYTHING—
your story, the blood, sweat, & tears, who you were, are, and coming to be.
And what I know, is that if it’s not energetically in alignment with who you are, your website is not gonna work for you.
As a female, conscious creative, healer, and entrepreneur myself, I know what a vulnerable journey this can be, putting your deepest, truest gifts into the world for all to see. I TOTALLY get it—I just Rebranded the heck out of myself and offerings!
So I’ve got you fully supported here—considering the pieces beyond the practical, logistical, business side of things but also, the energetic, emotional, and spiritual ones.
Besides designing things for you, what’s my biggest job?
Putting your truest, biggest gifts into the world can be a vulnerable process. And this is where I want to meet people and guide them through the process —emotionally, mentally, mindfully, energetically, intuitively,—and most of all smoothly.
So besides designing things for you, I’m a little bit like a web design therapist, helping you through the emotional and mental bits of this process, too.
And I’m also like a little fire under your booty that gets you excited about birthing and launching your new project. A little burst of energy, an injection of infectious love and energy to get you out of the overwhelm and draggy pants.
My biggest job — really — is to make this experience less daunting/frustrating/overwhelming/scary
and more fun and exciting for you!
Because that’s what this should be—a celebration of your visions and dreams coming to fruition.
So, I’ll make sure I get what you want. I will turn on my intuition to the highest setting and vibe the hell outta things from start to finish.
Keeping a personal touch on things, you’ll actually hear from me, cheering you on and we’ll meet throughout the design process so we can rock things out together.
We’ll collaborate and swap notes and ideas until we nail every piece of your project to your heart’s delight.
What do I get outta this?
In the end, if you’ve been participating and we’ve been communicating all along the way, you’ll have a website (and marketing materials, too, if you need them!) you love, that is TOTALLY you and makes you smile every time you look at it.
Both because you’ve taken this big step energetically AND because you’ve got a kick-ass landing spot for people, this project completion will also draw in your tribe, the one that’s been waiting to find you, that’s ready for you.
We’ll find the way to express YOU in the most authentic way you’re willing to be.
You’ll attract your peeps.
(And, by the way, you’ll find more financial success, too!)
Super psyched to have you here, sister!
I am currently scheduling for August 2019.
Leave me a note & we’ll get you on the books soon!
BUT FIRST, TWO THINGS, PLEASE!
(Side note: I realize, giving you two things to do is SO ill-advised by all web gurus everywhere. But, I trust you. 1 & 2.)
Fill out this Very mini-application.
Please complete the ten question Interested-In-Working-With-You mini-app below.
Then, I’ll take a look so I’m prepared with the basics when we talk.
Which reminds me, Step 2, chica…Schedule a 15 minute call or a 60 minute sit-down (local or call/video) with me!
Schedule a call with me.
My calendar is filling up FAST! So get on the books, sister!
I want to see what you’ve got brewing and if we’re a good match, get your project rollin’!
HOW IT WORKS
Depending on your schedule and mine, there is no set time frames on when this all gets done. The important pieces for how quickly things move along are:
When I have time in my schedule for your project.
When you can get me all the things I need to get your project done! (Things that we’ll get really specific about like your vision, ideas, copy, photos, etc.)
Once we’ve got those things dialed, we’re good to go. If we are doing branding work together, we are two weeks out from launching you out into the world. And if we are “just” doing web design, we are just 5 days out to the moment we launch your site into the world wide web.
It looks like this-ish:
We’ll SET UP A MEET & GREET, so to speak—a time to meet and talk all about you and your project and vision and we’ll see if you &
I—and your project(!) & I—
are a good fit.
If we’re good, I’ll give you some
homework & we are on to
Yep, that’s right! The day after we meet,
I’ll have out a proposal & contract to you
so we can get all the t’s crossed & i’s,
dotted. And we’ll schedule your design week!
At this time, you’ve got some homework to do: start sending me copy, photos, logos, ideas, etc…
LET’S GET THIS ROLLIN’!
If we are doing design work together, we’ll have our first Review Meeting where we will go over the LOGO + COLOR PALETTE and
we’ll oooh & aaah about how pretty
& awesome things look!
And, of course, change anything
that you aren’t feelin’.
I GOT YOU SISTER!
BRAND BOARD MEETING Yay! So fun!
We’ll peek at ALL the pieces in one place—
color palette, logo, patterns, textures,
fonts, images and more—and see if you
are in love! If not, we’ll make some
changes until you are.
If you’re feeling it’s right and good, we’ll create a landing page so you can start sending people to your one-page site to build anticipation!
Any MARKETING MATERIALS we are
doing together GO TO PRINT!
Plus, WEB DESIGN WEEK ahead!
The real collaboration begins as we
fully bring your vision and dream to life
as I build out the back end of your website,
the visual expression of you and
TO AND FOR the world.
GIRL, YOU DID IT!!
TIME TO CELEBRATE!
TELL THE WORLD THAT YOU ARE LIVE
AND OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!
YOU DID IT!
AND WE ARE ALL SO HAPPY TO HAVE YOU
& YOUR GIFTS OPEN TO THE WORLD.
SERVICES & PRICING
To make this happen—to launch your divinely-inspired gifts into the world—I offer a bunch of services. Here are the biggies:
-Marketing materials design + printing
-Squarespace website design, including:
Acuity (calendar) online scheduling set-up
Newsletter (Squarespace Campaigns) set-up
Help with copy editing
Each project need is different…every price is different.
If you’ve got a simple five-page site project or if you’ve got a complex, e-commerce site + all the logo design and marketing materials project, you’ve got totally different projects. Apples and oranges, my friend.
So, we’ll meet. We’ll talk about the scope of your project and I’ll give you an estimate of what it’s going to run you. If you decide to do more than what we originally discussed, then we tack that on hourly.
I’ll outline everything so that we are both super clear about things—my hours of availability, the things we agreed upon, what the big pieces are that we’re integrating into the project (key words, feelings, visions, etc.)—all of it. Proposals and contracts protect us both and keep things super clean.
