Brand Design

Check out the makings of a comprehensive brand

This is where the magic happens. Starting with a brand questionnaire, you’ll fine-tune your style and dig deep into your brand goals and values so we know exactly how to represent your business. I also ask you to pull together a Pinterest board with a few images of sites and brands that you like. Using color psychology, competitive brand research, and expert font selection, I design a comprehensive brand package with a style that’s unique to you. 

As a bonus, you also receive a brand style guide to use as your toolkit going forward (see, I don’t just leave you hanging when I’m done). This tells you how to keep your brand cohesive and shows you exactly how to use it across platforms and marketing materials going forward.

the investment

Obviously, there are options for you to go at it alone and tackle your site DIY style or hire another designer. However, when you try to DIY your brand and patch together a bunch of different templates or have different designers working on different pieces of your client experience, it often results in an online presence that is a hot mess. When everything is taken care of in one studio you will be able to launch your new website and brand with confidence.

My semi-custom website design clients spend on average $4,500 and are always thrilled with the ease of the process and the end result.

With our signature design process, all of the hard work is done for you. You just work with me and my team knowing that everything to do with your website is handled. You deserve to have a website you are proud of and gets you booked out with the more of the sessions and clients you love!

yes, I'm ready!

Kind Words

Ally is seriously the best! So organized, thoughtful, responsive and so creative.

MELANIE BOEHM,
THE GOLDEN COLLECTIVE PHOTOGRAPHY

She is such a kind person and has the patience of a saint! I ran into so many issues when I was trying to finish a few things on my website and she was able to handle it with such grace. She went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. My new branding is so on point with what I saw for myself. I highly recommend her services and I can’t wait to work with her again!

Ally made everything so easy and organized and she really felt like a friend. 

ABBEY DILLARD PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY

I had no idea what I was doing or looking for and she really helped me nail down my ideas and what I wanted my brand presence to look like. She was very responsive to my questions and I am obsessed with my finished products. I could not recommend her more and am looking forward to having her as a part of my business girl gang!

What Ally created for my brand was way better than what I had in my mind.

LAURA CALLIS, STILL HAPPINESS PHOTOGRAPHY

Ally offered just what I was looking for as far as website and design. I loved that her examples of past websites weren’t cookie cutter. They are different, beautiful and professional.  I’m looking forward to continuing to share my website with my audience and letting it represent me online. 

Perhaps you’re thinking…

“But what if I’m making a huge mistake?” 

I feel you. It’s a big investment but your website is your online studio. If you have a studio you have probably put a lot of time and money into making it look great. Don't you want your clients to feel the same when they land on your website?

I make sure this project doesn’t overwhelm you with one more thing to-do, we work in manageable phases so that each section wins your approval before we move on to the next. To ensure you love everything we design, our clients get two rounds of edits for each phase, which is usually plenty to get your brand and website to a place where you’re delighted with it. The most reassuring of all, because I’ve been doing this a long time, I know which questions to ask and when in order to give the project clarity.

Why should you choose to work with Ally?

Every detail of your brand and website should be rooted in your vision for your business. More importantly, this should all be designed with purpose to promote optimum growth and success. Simply put in its most basic terms, that’s exactly what I offer. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Will my design be custom?

While we do start with template as a jumping off point, your brand focused, strategy-based design will be uniquely tailored to the preferences, vision, and goals that you share with us. What's that mean? It means, YOU are not like any other photographer in your community so your website won't be either!

What design platform do you use?

We like using ShowIt and are happy to explain why. Your ShowIt web design will be experience-driven and responsive. You'll end up with a creative, engaging web design you can confidently update yourself and your clients will love to use it. (You can view pricing options here.)

Can I hire you for future updates?

Absolutely! Although we aim to equip our clients with the skills they need to confidently and seamlessly use, update and maintain your brand and web design through provided general and personal training videos and educational resources. But if you ever need anything designed at all I offer half (3 hours) and full design days (6 hours) for my clients or I work on a per-project basis.

How long will the design process take?

I offer a seamless, collaborative design process. Most design projects take approximately 12 weeks for a brand and website, but really depend on your timely communication along the way. I will not be nagging you or hold you accountable to do the work, you have to be accountable for your own project and ready to do the work.

Do you offer payment plans?

I do. Payment plans can be split into 2 or 3 payments spread out over 3 months.

Do you have a certain design style?

I’m lucky that I’m a very flexible designer: I always work to your tastes, rather than my own. That’s not to say I don’t have an opinion on the look and feel of something, but I’ll always work with your needs and preferences in mind. It’s not about me, it’s about you!

Are you currently booking new clients?

Yes, we are currently booking new clients. Our process begins with the brand foundation and gathering your unique vision, preferences, and goals for your brand and web design. Contact us to chat about all of the details and to begin your project.
