IN MY CLIENT'S WORDS

"I got the immediate sense Clare was actually listening to me and focused on understanding not only our business but also our philosophy and "personality."

When we decided to launch our new law firm, we wanted a website and branding that conveyed the seriousness and quality of our work, but also presented us as a modern, forward-thinking firm. 

We hired Clare to create our branding and a one-page website. When I first spoke with Clare, I got the immediate sense she was actually listening to me and focused on understanding not only our business but also our philosophy and “personality.” This effort shone through in the deliverables Clare created for us. She hit the nail on the head with almost the first try; it was exactly what we were looking for in terms of style and overall feel. 

Clare made the process itself as painless as possible, with clear guidelines and helpful resources at every point. She was responsive, met every deadline, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her, and in fact already have!

A simple process

When it comes to web design, it’s not about chasing the latest trends. For me, it’s about crafting a site that’s strategic that stands the test of time, capturing your vision and simplifying your workload.

I make a commitment to you. I genuinely care about your business, your reputation and your life outside work. My tried and tested web design process is organised, considered, enjoyable and simple and I create a space where ideas flow freely, making it a truly collaborative experience. I look for ways to streamline your workflows giving you back your precious time so you can focus on what matters to you most.

Share some details so I can prepare for our discovery call.

When your form has been submitted, you’ll see a link allowing you access to my calendar to book a call at your convenience. Our discovery call will take place over Zoom, lasting around 20-30 minutes, and is a relaxed opportunity for me to learn more about the work you do, the clients you serve and your vision for the future of your business.

We’ll take some time to talk through the functionality you need in order for your website to best support your business and appeal to your ideal clients.

You will receive a customised proposal that summarises our call together and outlines my recommendations for your new website. Within the proposal, you will find an estimated timeline and a detailed description of the design process and what’s included. If you believe your website could benefit from additional services like copywriting, visual branding, strategic SEO consulting or digital marketing, you will also find a quote included. You can then select the services that best suit your needs and set up your preferred payment plan.

With your deposit paid, it will be time to get started. Collaboration is at the heart of my design process. I understand that every client brings a unique vision to the table, and I’m committed to making that vision a reality. You will receive a Welcome Guide, which outlines the process in more detail, provides a checklist so you have a  clear overview of everything I will require from you. Your welcome guide also contains some exercises to help you think through the goals and strategy that will underpin your site.

We will schedule a brand strategy call to deep dive into your processes, the work you do and the clients you serve, and together we will sketch out a timeline for the project that fits with your existing commitments.

If you’ve chosen to collaborate with our copywriter, I’ll introduce you to her so she can familiarise herself with your needs and create tailored copy for you. Additionally, our SEO consultants are available upon request to build your SEO strategy, providing guidance on keywords, metadata, and a content plan going forwards.

I always request that copywriting and images are submitted in full before I begin the design process, and they will be added to the site in one session when we go into development.

Website design involves the creative and technical process of planning, structuring, and visually designing the layout, appearance, and user interface of a website to ensure your clients enjoy an engaging and user-friendly online experience.

If you have chosen for us to design (or re-design) your logo, typography and branding, this is the moment when I’ll integrate your fresh new look into your website. I will sketch out your homepage and send across a video with a summary of the thoughts behind the design and functionality. Your opinion is important to me, and you will have the opportunity to refine the design before we progress to website development. There are three revisions available during the design phase.

With your design approved, we are ready to build out the site, add any plug-ins and develop any functionality you require. By the end of the development phase, you will have a clickable website to explore, built on WordPress within a secure staging environment.

The big day has arrived, and your stunning new website is all set to go live! I dedicate plenty of time to thoroughly test your site across browsers and devices, ensuring that all your plugins are running smoothly and your SEO strategy is fully integrated.

This is such an important day – it’s time to celebrate your hard work and the vision you have for the future of your business.

It is so important to me that I empower you to take ownership of your beautiful new website and maintain it yourself if that’s what you choose to do. You will retain full control of your new website in its entirety and I will book in a training slot with you to show you around. If you are hosting a blog I will share your post templates and explain how to use them, and you can invite your team to our session to ensure you can delegate with ease.

If you would prefer for me to maintain and update your website going forwards, we can get you set up on one of my care plans. Your New Website Guide will house your login information, any video or written tutorials you require, and your design files.

I build lasting relationships with my wonderful clients, and would love to support you going forward with a personalised ongoing care plan. Whether you need technical support to maintain your plug-ins and ensure your website is secure, or if you would prefer ongoing design work and content updates, I’m here for you

IN MY CLIENT'S WORDS

"Clare's expertise and guidance were invaluable."

Working with Clare to create my Sacred Money Archetypes Quiz was transformative for my project. I aimed to offer a unique tool to explore one’s money relationship but struggled to structure the quiz effectively before Clare joined.

Her expertise and guidance were invaluable. Clare effortlessly translated my vision into an engaging quiz that exceeded my expectations, becoming a centrepiece of my platform.

Clare’s attention to detail and understanding of my goals resulted in a product that perfectly conveys the essence of what I intended. Our collaboration streamlined my workflow, simplifying the process and offering immense value to my audience.

I thoroughly enjoyed our collaboration. Clare’s approachability, professionalism, and dedication made the journey enjoyable. For anyone considering hiring Clare, I’d say, ‘Absolutely go for it!’ Her expertise elevates any project. It’s been a pleasure working together, and I’m thrilled with the results!

Your Questions Answered

Choosing the right creative partner feels like a huge step – there are so many designers out there. Below, you’ll find the answers to some of the questions I most often receive. If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

For years, I worked with professionals from a range of industries, including law, investment and finance, sports clubs, hospitality and consulting. I decided to focus on supporting interior designers because I know it is a field I can add extra value to with my eye for visual spacing, balance and typography.

That said, I love to support professionals from other fields – please get in touch to find out whether we’re the right fit.

The best person to ask is my past clients – please take a look at my case studies for a thorough answer! I take a lot of care over the thoughtful experience I put together for my clients – it’s important to me that I demystify and simplify the web design process so that you can enjoy the journey.

I also believe your website should be a powerhouse, working hard for you behind the scenes while you focus on your clients and then enjoy your life behind the scenes. I am passionate about using SEO and intentional design to leverage your site and bring your ideal clients to your door.

It is important to me that my clients receive the service they need within their budget. Your proposal will vary depending on whether you need support with branding, copywriting and digital strategy, and whether you require a blog. As a rough guide, projects usually cost between £3,000 ($3,800) for a simple one page site and £10,000 ($12,000) for a full website and blog. I itemise my proposal to allow you to pick the investment that feels right for you.

You can read more about how much it costs to build a website here.

I take a 50% deposit at the start of the project, with the remainder payable prior to website launch. Alternatively, you can choose to pay in instalments, with the website launch scheduled after the final payment has been received.

My Care Packages start from £100 ($125) per month, which includes hosting, updates, backups and security checks.

If you would like extra design work, including support with adding blog posts and sourcing images, I can handle that too! You can pay monthly, quarterly or annually and schedule your design hours monthly or quarterly depending on what suits your workflow.

This really varies – if you have a clear vision for your site and your content and images ready (or plan to work with a copywriter), your website could be ready for launch within a month from when I receive the final content. I schedule projects as they come in, depending on my workload and yours, and we plan a timeline together at the outset of the project.

You absolutely can, but keep in mind that it is usually the biggest job of the website build. I have a brilliant copywriter who is on hand to support you with your copy if needed, and would be happy to put you in touch. Click here to learn more about copywriting and your website design project.

I have done a lot of branding work for previous clients, including selecting and refining a colour palette and typography and logo design. I can also support you with print design for your business cards, letterheads, invoicing and email templates, as well as social media templates.

I have a sixtypoint SEO checklist that I work through for every client to ensure we give your website the very best possible chance of ranking for SEO. If you wish to get more support on SEO, I have an expert SEO consultant who provide you with a tailor made strategy and content plan for the first three months of your business.
