You can consult the description of each item below to learn more about each one!

CORE ITEMS

For when you need a custom solution** to tweak a specific element on your site, or require code that can be implemented over and over again across your site, simply by changing its content.

 

ADD-ONS

So your email marketing service is completely integrated on your site before launch, to capture subscribers right off the bat!

DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT

When the start date arrives and with all your pre-project homework ready to go, I’ll get started with the design phase! Depending on the core items you chose, I’ll create prototypes and mockups of your pages before jumping into Squarespace to develop the design.

In this phase I’ll also take care of any additional details necessary and check the result in the recent versions of most commonly used browsers, to make sure everything works and looks like it should!

Delivery phase.png

DELIVERY

With the design and development completed, it’s time to deliver the goods! I’ll either transfer the new site over to you, set your new refreshed pages live or deliver the code you requested depending on the items in your package.

Frequent questions

1. I want a new site, should I have domain and hosting already?

Not at all! If you already own a domain name, we’ll connect it (map it) to your Squarespace website. If you don’t, we’ll talk about your options. Keep in mind that to have a Squarespace website live, you need to subscribe to one of their hosting plans, regardless of if you have a domain with another provider.

2. How does the email marketing provider integration work?

If you already have an account with a provider, we’ll simply connect it to your Squarespace site either through their integration system or a third-party app like Zapier. If you don’t have an email marketing provider yet and would like to sign up for one, I’ll gladly give you some pointers to help you make a decision based on your needs, and integrate your choice with your site.

3. Regarding the design aspect of the website, will I have a say in it?

Of course! That’s why, before the project begins, I’ll be giving you a questionnaire to fill out with all the details of what you like, don’t like, and want for your site. Based on that information I’ll craft a design that you’ll absolutely love plus, you’ll get several rounds of revisions along the way that will help fine-tune the site to your vision.

4. I'm not sure what I want can be done in Squarespace, how can I find out?

Ask me directly! Send me an email to beatriz@thirtyeightvisuals.com and let me know what you have in mind. Screenshots and links will help me better understand what you're after!

5. Do you work with designers? I need help with some code for a client.

Absolutely! I've worked with other Squarespace designers both publicly and anonymously. By working publicly I share the tweaks I made on social media and on my portfolio, but if you rather keep my work under the radar there's no problem, only an additional fee is involved. However, keep in mind some code snippets will contain my name and/or website as reference for anyone who works with that site in the future.

6. How much will it cost me to maintain my site?

It depends on the services you choose to use, but generally you would have the following expenses:
Domain name: starting at $20 p/year with Squarespace or, at the yearly price of your preferred registrar (plus hosting to keep it live).
Squarespace subscription: $216 p/year or $26 p/month with a business plan.
Email marketing provider: at the monthly/yearly price of your preferred registrar (ranging from $0 - $30/month, up to 1000 subscribers)
Business email: free with your third-party domain registrar or only $50 p/ year with G Suite (in available countries).
Which means that, on average, you’ll be looking at $50 p/month when profiting from yearly plans’ discounts.

7. How much time will this take?

Project timelines depend on several factors, inlcuding size of your site, content availability, timely feedback and custom code complexity. Particularly with new sites, it’s important you have all your content ready to go BEFORE the project start date, and make sure you are available during our time working together, so we can go through the revisions smoothly. In general, a 5-page customized website takes around 8 weeks from the project start date. Coding customizations start at around 1 week.

8. How does the payment work?

Payments can be made through credit card or via Paypal, 50% to book your spot and 50% before the handover of the site. If you need a payment plan, please get in touch with me!

9. Do you provide images for new sites?

No. When providing your content, you’ll also need to include any images you’d like to use. I can offer you a list of sites where you can find free and paid stock photos, but searching for images is not included. If using paid photos, you can provide the watermark version to test them on your site’s mockups before you purchase them. This way, you’ll only have to buy the one’s being used on your site.

10. Do you create logos, icons, collateral and/or illustrations?

No. This service is meant for those who already have a brand identity, therefore they already have a logo, a set of illustrative elements, brand colors, etc.

11. What currency are you working with?

All prices listed on my site are in USD unless indicated otherwise.

 
 

* the type of small modifications included with new pages correspond to color changes, standard mobile modifications and font alterations. Complex code modifications such as dynamic effects, blocks from scratch and large Squarespace layout alterations may need to be quoted separately.
** keep in mind these types of customizations might require you to tweak the code if you decide to change fonts, content, sizes or colors in the future.
† related to any issues caused by the design or code implemented during the design phase, or small problems caused by tweaks made by you after the ownership transfer. Bigger issues caused by any modifications made by you or a third-party can be fixed but an hourly rate of $45 may apply.
