YOUR business SHOULD LOOK AS PROFESSIONAL AS I KNOW YOU ARE.


I know you're probably wondering why you should invest in design.

"Is it worth thousands of my hard-earned dollars??"

The answer? Yes.

Good design will convert more website visitors into subscribers and customers.

Good design will help you bring in more inquiries.

Good design will take you from where you are to where you're dreaming of being! 

Don't just take my word for it. Read what my clients think of working with me and how it has impacted their business...

“KRISHNA HAS A VERY CLEAR PROCESS.
I KNOW I CAN RELY ON HER TO DELIVER WHEN SHE SAYS SHE WILL”

Our website now has a bold, colourful new look which better suits the personality of our business. It feels refreshed!
The benefit of working with Krishna is that she really listens to you to identify what you want from the project, and is clear about timelines which helps you plan accordingly. She has a very clear process. I know I can rely on Krishna to deliver when she says she will.

“MY NEW BRAND AND LOGO REALLY MAKES MY BUSINESS LOOK MORE PROFESSIONAL!
IT SUITS MY AUDIENCE SO WELL!”

I was after a new logo and brand for my jewellery business, Mela Jewellery.
Working with Krishna was a pleasure. She's so nice and everything is so clear - timings, steps, sign off. It made it easier for me to fit in with my schedule. I love my new logo and brand. It really makes my business look more professional and suits my audience so well. The new logo has given me more confidence in presenting my brand and all the feedback has been really positive. I definitely recommend Krishna, in fact I already have!

"KRISHNA HAS A VERY CLEAR AND WELL THOUGHT OUT PROCESS"

I was after a cool, professional brand including a meaningful logo and a clear, modern website to promote my new business - Discovery Analytical Consulting.  Krishna has a very clear and well thought out process that we followed methodically with distinct sign-offs at every stage. This was invaluable to me, as someone without much experience in web site design, in terms of understanding progress of the project.  The website has only been live for one week but all feedback so far has been positive. Furthermore, in the past week I have received a number of high quality leads that I would not have had without the professional appearance of the website and branding developed by Krishna.  Definitely get in touch with her if you are small business with design and branding needs!

"SHE IS GREAT AND CAN REALLY MAKE YOUR VISION COME ALIVE!"

It was important that I found a designer that could understand what I was after. Working with Krishna was really enjoyable as she was easy to get hold of and she always listened to how I wanted my logo, brand and website to look. If you are after the whole package like I was I would say definitely contact her! She is great and can really make your vision come alive! Overall brilliant job and thanks for your patience and work.

The process


1 | Free Consultation - After you've read through this page, you can schedule a free consultation. You'll be able to ask me any questions you have before booking! 

2 | Pay your deposit - Once you've decided you want to move forward, you'll need to pay a 30% non-refundable deposit to secure your spot in my schedule. Then 30% is due at the start of the design phase, 30% is due when the designs are signed off and the final 10% is due when the project is complete but before the final files are handed over. 

3 | Sign my contract - We'll both need to sign my contract so that we're fully protected before we begin working together. 

4 | Project management - I'll add you to my project management system, Asana. This is where we'll communicate and keep all your files and feedback. Don't worry - I'll provide you with a video tutorial on how to use it!

5 | Homework - You'll need to fill a secret Pinterest board with inspiration and answer a questionnaire. Then you'll need to upload all your website content to Asana.

6 | Consult call - 1-2 weeks before your project begins, we'll hop on a 30 minute call if you're up for it. This is the perfect time to ask any last-minute questions you may have!

7 | Moodboarding - Now is the time for me to let my creative juices flow and mock up a moodboard.  This highlights design elements,  colour palette, fonts and overall style of your project.

8 | Logo concepts - Once the moodboard is signed off, I create 2 logo variations.  After discussing the concepts and using your 1 or 2 revisions, we narrow down to one final logo.

9 | Brand board - Based on the chosen logo and the moodboard, I create a brand style board, which includes logo variations, sub marks, patterns, final fonts, and a look into imagery for your brand.

10 | Social media branding - If social media branding is included in your package then this is the time I'd create it. 

11 | Website design - I work on designing your website, and online presence.  Based on wireframes (depending on how complex your requirements are) I design your layout in Photoshop, providing you with JPGs for sign off. Once the design is signed off, I create your website in Squarespace!

12 | Final payment - Before I hand over your final files and website, you'll need to complete your final payment.  You'll also receive access to my client area where you'll find Squarespace tutorials and advice to help you maintain your website.

13 | Website walkthrough - Don't worry, I'm not going to leave you to figure out how to use your website all by yourself. We'll set up a 30 minute consult call where I walk you through how to use and update your website.

14 | Party time - After everything is complete, and your branding and website are live, it's time to let everyone know.  I'll help promote your brand and website by sharing it on social media and on my blog.  After all, sharing is caring! 

 • Some of these steps may not apply. It depends on whether your package includes them.

Frequently Asked Questions


How does payment work?
Once the contract has been signed, you'll need to pay a 30% non-refundable deposit to secure your spot in my schedule. Then 30% is due at the start of the design phase, 30% is due when the designs are signed off and the final 10% is due when the project is complete but before the final files are handed over. 

What do you design websites on?
I'll use Squarespace to build your site. It's easy, fun and simple for you to use on your own when the design process is finished. Head this way to read up on why Squarespace is the best option for your website!

Do I need to buy a domain before you build my website?
Not at all!  You can buy your domain directly through Squarespace. However, if you already have a domain somewhere else (like GoDaddy), then don't worry, I'll just redirect your domain to your Squarespace website!

What if I need other elements that are not part of your package?
That's fine. My packages are designed to help and provide you with all the elements you may want and need.  If you require another design element, then be sure to mention it when you get in touch.  We can discuss them during your design consultation and I can provide you with a separate quote or tailor the package to suit your needs!
