FAQs

What sort of client do you work with?

I typically work with small businesses or sole traders but mostly I work with anyone who either needs to establish a presence online or who has an existing site that needs to be redesigned.

I’m also available as a contractor or on an as-needed basis. Currently I create designs for a number of web design companies in New Zealand.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability and is the software solution utilized for the content management system (CMS). The CMS gives you the power to control your site content. You can edit and add content, images, and video as well as use the editor to mark up headings, lists, links and other elements. You’ll also have the power to add new pages to your site.

WordPress has a handy auto-save feature that saves your work automatically so you won’t lose your content. If you find that you need to revert back to a previous version of a page it’s as simple as clicking a link.

WordPress is web standards compliant. Every bit of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This is important not only for interoperability with today’s browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation.

Can I have a logo designed without web design services?

Yes, just contact me for more information.

How long does it take to have a website built?

There are a lot of variables that can affect a timeline however for an informational website it usually takes between 3-5 weeks. For e-commerce websites it will usually take 6-8 weeks.

I offer an emergency web design service which will have your website set-up within a few days.

Can you help with copywriting?

I’m not much of a copywriter myself but I can put you in contact with a professional copywriter.

Where are you located?

At 13 Sandringham Road in Kingsland, Auckland conveniently located near the train station and many bus lines.

What are your payment terms?

Payments are requested on a weekly basis (7 days). For emergency web design services where the project will last less than one week, payment is requested before the project begins.

What forms of payment do you accept?

My favoured form of payment is direct debit or cash. Payment by credit card or checque can be arranged however an additional fee for processing charges will be added to the invoice total.
