Services for artists
Electronic communications, websites included, come in all different shapes and sizes. (Okay, that's not totally true since websites typically come in a rectangular, screen-shaped form, but you know what we're getting at here). Since needs vary, the approach to designing or updating material likewise varies. You may already have all the text needed, or we might adapt printed materials for the web. Or maybe you just want someone who knows how websites work so your existing site can be updated with current information. Whatever the situation, if it's on the web we can probably help:
Start to finish design and construction
The whole shebang from talking over what you want visitors to see, to determining what you already have on hand (text, images, etc), designing the site (colors, images, where everything lays out on the page), organizing your content, placing all text onto the pages, creating and placing images as needed, and uploading everything to its new home. We'll also guide you through setting up web hosting and email accounts if that's needed.
If you don't have a website at all, or your existing website is a quick placeholder from a few years back, this is probably the option we'll pursue.
Redesign of existing sites
Have you changed the name of your business? Created a graphic you want reflected in all your materials? Would you prefer a new color scheme? Or are you just feeling that your existing website could stand some sprucing up? If your content is organized the way you like it, this is probably the option for you. We can create a new look for your site and, if needed, transfer your old content to a new wrapper.
Your site looks fine... but that events page is four months old. Your layout is exactly how you want it... but there's a new photo gallery that needs adding. If you don't have the time or experience to make those changes to your website, give us a call. There's no reason to let a good site lie fallow.
When we build a website, we often have to create logos, patterns, and catchy graphics. All these can be done without a website, too – business cards, postcard ads, logos, and more. We can adapt your web materials for use offline (or vice versa) or create off-line graphics to meet your needs.
Hosting and domain names
Every site needs two things to exist – a domain name, like www.spunsimply.com, and web hosting, the place 'on the web' where all your files sit. If you're just starting out, chances are you need both, so we created this step-by-step guide to help you purchase the least-expensive, most-stable package we've found.
