WeBSITES FOR ARTIST

See Yourself in the objects you create.

ABOUT

Except for the lucky few, most of us find self promoting dehumanising. Aside from not being qualified copy writers or web designers, the process can even start to make us feel unqualified to talk about ourselves. The pressure to become a marketable commodity seems to reduce us to a two dimensional cut out of our former selves.

We understand this. We've been through it too. We can help you find your voice by focusing on the work. Let's build a website together that connects you with your audience and assists in finding meaningful collaborations.

You have to take yourself seriously before anyone else will. Our strength is in helping you do this by guiding you through the process of discovering your professional self.

(for emerging artists only

  established artist rates $500

Standard template websites are for the artists who want a great looking site but don't need the specificity offered by a custom built site.

    • Title

    • Menu Bar

*note that this offer is tailored to the needs of actors, however, if you are an artist in another industry we can build you the equivalent:

You're able to rearrange any of the elements listed above on the site however, if you'd like to add items, you will need to consider a custom built site. 

With this option, you will need to have all of your content readily available in a compatible format. However, you will be guided through the process so that you are not overwhelmed by the task.

Once live, changes to the site may be managed for you at an additional cost of $40/hr, or you can purchase a one hour $40 consult which will guide you through updating your own site.

TOTAL PACKAGE: $80/2hr consultation (for emerging artists only

established artist rates $100/hr

corporate rates $150)

*rates are temporarily discounted and subject to change and do not include the costs of hosting and the purchase of a domain name.

 

Consultations are designed for the person who is able to find their own way through intuitive technology, but for whatever reason, still need a little help to get started. 

 

During a consultation we will cover the following:

  • Site Map

    • What is a site map and how do you use it?

  • Website Content

    • What content is needed?

    • Writing copy

    • How to source content

    • Format requirements for content

  • Website Design

    • How to use AI technology to design your site for you.

    • How to use Wix templates to design your site.

    • How to custom design your site.

  • Building

    • Training session on Wix, Squarespace or Weebly. Wordpress is not on offer.

  • Domains & Hosting

    • We will talk you through the process of putting the site live.

Though it is designed to cover the above topics, the consultation will be tailored to specific needs of the client. Please be vocal in communicating your abilities and confidence before we start.

Additionally, if you only require a one hour session, that can be arranged. If you think you may require a longer consultation, you are offered a discounted rate at $25 per additional hour - valid only at the initial consultation.

With this option, you will not need to have any content ready, however, the more you have prepared and the better understanding we have of what you need before we start, the more ground we can cover.
