DESIGNING IS NOT YOUR THING!

You may have already tried your hand at designing your own logo, brand and website, but you know it's not doing your business justice.
How are you going to create an truly unique brand that sets you apart from others in your industry?  How will you design a functional, usable, website?  Do you even have time to concentrate on these things instead of what you are best at?  You're not a design pro...

I know you just want to do what you love and look professional whilst doing it.
But is there a way to get a professionally designed strong brand and beautiful website without breaking the bank or DIY-ing it?

I'm Krishna, a brand and website designer that works with small businesses and startups who want to take their business to the next level.

Take a look at the packages below and get it touch if you are ready to invest in a brighter, stronger, future for your business.

Mr Portfolio



The process

1 | Enquire - You want some designs created so your first step is to contact me.  If the design work requires a in-depth consultation we can get to know each other and discuss your project requirements via skype or a quick phone call. 

2 | Homework - Once you have signed the dotted line - a contract - I'll send you some pre-work/homework.  This is for me to get a better understanding of your requirements and the style you are after.

3 | 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.

4 | Logo concepts - Once the moodboard is signed off, I create 2 or 3 logo variations (depending on your chosen package).  After discussing the concepts and using your 1 or 2 revisions, we narrow down to one final logo.

5 | Logo design - 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.

6 | Website design - For the startup/website design package: 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.

7 | 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/site by sharing it on social media and on my blog. After all, sharing is caring! 



POPULAR QUESTIONS...

How does payment work?
Once the contract has been signed, there is a 30% non-refundable deposit.  Then the remaining amount is split into 2 payments - 50% due once design work commences and 50% due at project completion and handover.

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!


HERE'S WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY...

Krishna Solanki Designs - Lynne Taggart - MSS.jpg

"KRISHNA GAVE ME THE FREE TIME I NEEDED TO CONCENTRATE ON THE CORE ASPECT OF MY BUSINESS"

Having Krishna design my website was a breath of fresh air! Her skills and professionalism were just what my project required to reach completion. Krishna gave me the free time I needed to concentrate on the core aspect of my business, coaching. I was able to relax knowing that my website would look professional and polished. Since going live clients have been signing up for my coaching program from all over the world. My website is the perfect showcase for my business. I would highly recommend and use Krishna's services again.

"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!

"KRISHNA WAS VERY GIVING OF HER EXPERTISE AND WAS COMPLETELY RELIABLE IN TERMS OF TIMINGS AS WELL AS THE DESIGN SHE PRODUCED"

We were looking for layout and design for a 'Manual' PDF for our membership website.  Krishna was very giving of her expertise and was completely reliable in terms of timings as well as the design she produced.  The PDF looks great. It includes a lot of information so it was important that the layout was clear as well as attractive. Members have really appreciated the document as it helps them get the most from our site.  Krishna is a great choice for creative and clear design work and is a pleasure to work with. I'd recommend her.

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.
