Aileen Barker

Wordpress + Squarespace Design

CURRENTLY BOOKING FOR: SEPTEMBER 2015

As a previous Wordpress advocate that has recently moved to, and fallen in love with, Squarespace, I'm happy to offer design for both as I do believe that both Wordpress and Squarespace are great depending on your needs. A long story short if you're looking for an easy to manage blog or small website with a simple commerce option, go with Squarespace. If you need a lot of customization options, want more control and have the time to manage updates and plug-ins, go with Wordpress. Got it? Good!

Before I get to the packages I offer, let's go over some important information:

  • I only book one design project at a time*. This ensures that I am 100% focused on your design from start to finish.
  • Design process is 1 week for blog designs and 3 weeks for blog & brand designs. These are strict deadlines to ensure that we stay on track to get your design done and that I can shift my focus to my next client when we're done without overlapping.
  • Because of the two bullet points above, I'm only looking for clients who are ready to knock their design out quickly and efficiently. You must be able to get back to me with decisions via email a minimum of once per day during the scheduled design project.

*While I only book one main design project at a time, I do squeeze in smaller projects like a few blog graphics or other minor design work.

Now let's talk about what you're here for, packages & pricing. Below are my two packages. They can be tweaked slightly or if you don't see what you're looking for then we can talk about what you need and go from there!

Aileen was an absolutely dream to work with on my blog. She is creative, patient and extremely responsive. I am new to the blog world, and she walked me through the process and made it very easy for me to just get started on my blog. After only a couple of weeks, my blog was exactly what I wanted. I LOVE my blog design! I suggest her for all your blogging and branding needs. You will not be disappointed!

Aileen did an amazing custom design for my personal style blog. From the first point of contact she was very quick to respond, efficient, and easy to communicate with.
