Websites are 100% having their moment in August and I’m 100% here for it.
While we can absolutely knock out a custom website for your brand, let’s take a moment to recognize that sometimes, templates are the best way to go. They’re budget friendly, customizable to your brand, and save you even more time.
Launching a new brand’s website (mine included) can be an absolute pain. They’re complex and have a lot of moving parts. It’s more than just logo design, brand colors, images, and fonts. It’s about figuring out the layout, what copy is needed, and more importantly, how to organize all the brand elements so it makes sense and doesn’t overwhelm the viewer.
It’s a lot.
The beauty of a template is that it takes the bulk of the legwork out for both the designer and the client. The design is already done – it just needs to be reformatted and customized to fit you so it doesn’t feel like a template. It feels like you, sounds like you, looks and reads like you.
By having me come in and help – I get to turn that DIY phase into a DFY (done for you) phase. You get my expert guidance and your website gets done in no time. You don’t have to lose any sleep on what to write, what picture to put where – I do it for you and you get to say ‘yes’ or ‘no’.
For Melissa’s website we used the Margarita. It’s bold, colorful and has a touch of editorial which works perfect for the clean, relaxed and approachable vibes for Melissa’s brand. We wanted to keep it casual, keep it clean, keep it to the point and leave plenty of room for the colors to shine.
If you’re in dire need of a site ASAP, I’ve got good news for you: you can get any website at Tonic for 15% off using the code HeyCarl!. And if you decide you don’t wanna fuss with the DIY phase but you still need your site up yesterday, book a day or two with me and I’ll get it up for you ASAP.
