Thank you so much for your interest in a website design or redesign by Sabatani Photo + Design! I currently use Squarespace as my website builder using custom coding. Squarespace is a beautiful, easy to use platform that allows for very detailed customization. This way, it's easier for me than creating a custom bootstrap website from scratch, more affordable for you (since you will not have to hire a developer), and easier for you to update/maintain should you choose to do so on your own once I complete the project. The benefit of having me designing your Squarespace website versus putting it together on your own is that I will use my HTML/CSS skills as well as design skills in order to create you a comprehensive custom website unlike any of the pre-made templates many people tend to use. Another service that I provide that many other developers will not is a meeting to ensure that you are reaching your target audience in the most effective way so that your goals are met. I will also help you brainstorm creative strategies to accomplish those goals. Because I am a designer and photographer, I am full service and will be able to assist with graphics for the website as well as any on-location photography. Those services will be built into your estimate. On the left you can see a general breakdown of the different steps of the entire process. After completion of this form, I will be able to contact you with a quote. The total you pay will usually be altered only if there are any additions to your services as we develop the website (i.e. additional graphics, photography, materials purchased etc.) All websites will also be optimized for mobile.

 

 

 

 

 

payment info: I currently only accept payment via PayPal or check. I do require a 50% deposit before I begin on any project. Your estimate will include hosting and domain fees, which are due upfront along with the 50% deposit. Click HERE to see the current Squarespace rates and plans. I will choose the plan that best suits your needs based on the information you provide. Note that if you decide to send in a check through mail, there will be a delay in the project start time. The other 50% + and incurred fees are due upon website completion. Rates for any additional services will be communicated prior to purchasing or completion of service.

turnaround: I pride myself in a fast turnaround compared to other designers in the area! For websites, expect up to 40 days for project completion. Times vary depending on the complexity of the project.

 

I understand in early stages of any project, a lot of information is yet to be known (and I will do my best to help you make those decisions and research the best course of action!) but please fill out the following form as concisely as you possibly can at this point. The more specific your answers are, the more accurate the quote will be.

Please check to make sure the domain is not already taken!
Things like a contact form, a downloadable menu or brochure, a slideshow, etc.
For example, I have 5 menu items in my navigation bar: home, photo, design, about and blog.
I have 5 menu items, however several pages nested within these headings, therefore I have more than 5 pages. If your website is content and information heavy, you may need more pages.
For example, you may wish to use: • Banner or side advertising • Events modules and calendars • Image galleries • Latest news modules or blogs • Online polls or surveys • Random banner images • Online forums • Blog and article commenting • Social network integration • Store locators • Tag clouds I advise you to only select functionality that you are certain you need. I will discuss with you, as required, the additional cost of setting up such functionality. Note that a blog is often a worthwhile addition even to a small site: if it contains content that is relevant to the site purpose, it is likely to raise search engine ranking and draw in web traffic.
This can include headshots of your team, location photography, product or food photography, or event photography of your services.
