Squarespace Website Design
for Artists & Creative Solopreneurs
I specialize in the Fine Art of Web Design. I look for creative possibilities in individual businesses and one-of-a-kind artistic career paths. It is my goal to bring something artistic and personal into all of the design work I do. My Clients Are Creative Trail Blazers.
It is not necessary for everyone to have a website but I believe everyone should pay personal attention to their Internet presence. Have you ever Googled your own name? The Internet is not a dress rehearsal — It's always Showtime in CyberSpace.
Your website is your domain — your home in cyberspace and it should "show well" — think "curb appeal." It is your personal property and your opportunity to present your best first impression — an immediate eye catching moment that reflects who you are. Be Irresistible!
I work with and recommend Squarespace for website design. My clients are encouraged to become a part of the learning and development process. Once the initial learning curve is mastered they take over their site on their own. This direct involvement in the building process provides an overall understanding how their website works. Ideally, no further assistance is need from a Webmaster. You will maintain your website and be able to edit or add new material in the future.
I encourage clients to get involved in their own site
Pricing I offer a free 30 minute consultation to outline the best way to go forward. My fee is $75. per hour. With Squarespace I am typically able to get a new client building their own website within two hours. If more time is required pricing is determined by a project based proposal. I also design Squarespace websites from "Start to Finish."
My Primary Focus Points
- Personal Branding & Style
Your website can speak specifically for you and reflect what you do.
- Guidance or ongoing maintenance if desired
- Clear Navigation
I give careful thought to Page Content and Page Navigation. Descriptive page titles are needed for SEO. Your page content is the most interactive part of your site. It allows your viewers the chance to participate and respond to you. Once you have captured your viewers attention your website needs to be informative and easy to move through. No one should ever get lost while exploring your website. The information viewers are searching for must be obvious and valid.
Website design can seem overwhelming at first with so many choices and unfamiliar terminology. If you are just getting started contact me for more information regarding the various aspects of designing your website. I am available for a free consultation and can help you understand the best direction for your personal needs.
It's my business to make your business look good.
“Once I linked to Squarespace from GoDaddy my old site went down. I decided I might as well launch it and do the tweaks here and there.
Thank you for all your help. You really got me over the first big obstacle and now I really know how to navigate Squarespace and ask for help. They are great. Never make me feel stupid. I must admit that I am rather proud of myself. This was a huge accomplishment for me. I have been thinking about it for literally years."

Websites don't need to be complicated or expensive
