Campfire Business Assistance.
When the Campfire hit Paradise in November of 2018, all of our lives were destroyed. As a life-long local of this beautiful town, I was absolutely devastated. I immediately got involved in the cleanup efforts that I was able to, but wondered what else I could contribute.
Before the fire, I was a graphic designer specializing in Website Development/Design and Branding. How could I use this to help a burned out community?
Then I found my answer!
In an effort to try and help the local businesses, I have decided to offer my web design skills on a donation basis.
What does this entail?
For redesigns, I take all the existing information on a current website and give it a spruced up home! I am able to add calls to action, reorganize based on User Experience Design, and add some photography.
For new sites, I offer to build a small website (up to 5 pages) from scratch. I use information pulled from an initial meeting to create copy for you in addition to pulling in photography.
All my sites are fully integrated when it comes to your social media and email. I always provide a Contact page for you, and make sure that you have seamless UX/UI design. I only use royalty-free and high-definition photography in my sites. Any copy that I write for you would be approved by you ahead of time. Website launch only takes place after the site is approved by you.
What do I need from you?
You just need a Squarespace account. (Why Squarespace? It is simple and easy to use for you. In addition to a fantastic 24-7 help desk, their design makes site maintenance easy for YOU to do instead of paying hosting fees on top of everything)
Have a Domain Name
Any photography you used/want to use
An Email to use for business purposes
Any logins for Social Media that you want to connect.
Hope and a happy heart!
What is the timeline?
My current timeline for redesigns is up to 2 weeks. Complete design from scratch can take up to 4 weeks. I offer a round of critique and offer a chance for edits at the end of the design process. Only after the site is approved will it be launched.
