Choosing an experienced graphic designer is hard!

Help! I have questions!

  • What are your primary services?
    I wear many hats. I am a graphic designer, creating logos and branding, illustrations, advertising and signage, packaging and print design. I am a full-stack web designer/developer, meaning I can plan and design a website and then code the frontend (user interface) and the backend (code and databases that make it all function). I design and manage email marketing campaigns for many of my clients. I have a pretty thorough knowledge of all things IT, from website and email hosting through to SEO and SEM, troubleshooting, security and web optimisation. Give me a shout.
  • How much does a website cost?
    That depends heavily on what you need it to do. A website with just a few pages and basic functionality might cost around NZ$2000, but beyond that things get more complicated to estimate. Does it need a Content Management System? Blog? Online Shopping System? Email Newsletters? Membership Database? It’s best to just fill out the Project Quote form and we can take it from there.
  • Do you offer website hosting?
    Yes I provide website and email hosting for many of my clients! My server is based in California. I utilise CDNs and other services to ensure your website is fast and has very little downtime. I’ll handle everything, just flick me an email.
  • What tech ‘stack’ are you using?
    I don’t get too caught up about the latest frameworks and stacks. I just use whatever technologies I think are best for the job. Most of the time that means a combination of LAMP and vanilla JS. Likewise I’ll use whatever Content Management System or Headless CMS suits your requirements.
  • Can you do Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)?
    When I build websites I ensure each page has high quality page titles, meta data and alt-tags, and the site is fast and structured in a modern, search engine friendly way. In most instances that’s enough to get your website ranking highly in Google, but I also utilise professional SEO tools like Diib, Ahrefs, MOZ, and Semrush for thorough website auditing, advanced keyword and link building research to really give your website the edge over competitors.
  • Can you do my site with a Website Builder?
    I generally avoid creating websites using platforms like WIX, Squarespace, Webflow, Rocketspark, Weebly and Elementor for Wordpress. They have their place for small businesses wanting to build a simple web presence but the beauty of those platforms is that you can do it all yourself.
  • Can I pay in instalments?
    Sure, I generally split larger projects into two payments; 60% deposit + 40% on completion. I am more than happy to consider payment plans that fit your business better.
  • I want to create a website but I’m out of ideas. Can you give me some starter ideas?
    I have a number of websites that I never finished, but I still have lots of potential. Give me a shout if you’re interested in buying any of these domains: YoungReaders.co / BedAndBreakfast.store / BnB-Supplies.com / LanguageCompanion.com.

    I can also supply you with all the documentation, research and ideas of each.

Hopefully that helped answer any questions you had. Now, drop me an email and let’s talk about your project.
