CUSTOM WEBSITE DESIGN

A BETTER WAY TO DESIGN YOUR SITE

I've blown up the traditional way of building websites and rebuilt it to fit small businesses and grassroots organizations who need things to be simple, beautiful, and affordable. 

This isn't about being faster. It's about being better.

Collaborative Design FTW

With my creative genius, your thorough preparation, and our creative collaboration, most custom websites are ready to go live in a week.  

We'll spend the first day or two of your Build Week collaborating one-on-one and getting your design nailed down. Then I'll spend the next few days adding all of the functionality, details, and content that allow your site to take your business or organization to the next level.

Even though the process is fast, it isn't actually built for speed. It's designed so I can laser-focus all of my creative energy on you and your project.  Keep reading to learn more.

How it works

There are two bits of magic in my process: Preparation & Real-Time Collaboration.

Preparation is the key to a successful Build Week. Much of the work happens before I can start designing your site. I'll give you a bit of homework, and I recommend scheduling your Project Start Day at least two weeks out so you have time to get me everything I need for a smooth & successful build.

Every Custom Site kicks off with an adrenaline-fueled  Build Day. It's all about creative collaboration with the goal of nailing down your new website's look & feel.  On your Build Day and while I build out your site over the remainder of the week, the focus is 100% on you and creating the best website for your goals.

  • I'll design the site layout, color palette, and typographic styles based on your goals and preferences

Collaborate with Me

On Build Day, arrange to be available for feedback & collaboration online.

"I was looking for a new website for my life coaching practice and a friend who had used Larah referred me. I’ve had many, many compliments on my new site! I love that I could explain the feel I was looking for and Larah nailed it with the overall design. She’s FUN to work with, gracious, caring and professional.

My advice to anyone considering hiring a designer: Give Larah the space and freedom to use her exceptional design skills by not overly specifying what you want. I gave her no direction other than an idea of who I am, what I do and what I do and the feel I was looking for. She came up with the most beautiful design that so absolutely represents who I am as a coach.   xo"

Jill Wolk

"This was such an awesome experience and I'm a little bit in love with my new site! If anyone is on the fence and thinking about a new site, I can highly recommend Larah!"

Renee Ballard

"You're awesome! Easy to work with, very conscientious, very smart and knowledgeable.

Thank you for creating such a beautiful site for me. You really took my ideas and created a gorgeous and functional site for my business."

Answers to common questions.

How do we prepare for Build Day?

Most of the magic happens before your actual build begins.  

Once your project is on my project calendar, your next step is to complete the Website Planning Toolkit. You can get a head start on that anytime by downloading the Toolkit here.

What if we don't finish by the end of the day?

Custom Websites includes up to 24 hours of my time (+ add-ons) to complete your site. In the event we can't finish in the that time, additional hours are available at my standard rate of $125/hour. 

What is Website as a Service (WaaS)?

All Mindmeld Creative websites are sold as an ongoing service with minimum term contract. You'll pay a monthly service fee that includes the custom website design, hosting, maintenance, and updates. 

If you would rather not have a payment plan, that's fine. You can pay a deposit of 50% of the total and the remaining 50% when we're ready to go live.

More information about the payment terms can be found on the FAQs page.

How does payment work?

The setup fee for your website (or the down payment if you're not choosing WaaS) is required to book your Build Day. The first monthly payment will be scheduled to coincide with your first Build Day.

The remaining balance (cost of any add-ons) will be invoiced separately and is due before 5pm one business day before your scheduled Build Day.

NOTE: If you miss your Build Day, either by not being ready with your content or by not making the final add-ons payment, you will be charged an additional $100 re-scheduling fee.

How do we get started?

I love that you're ready to go! There are a couple of steps to getting started. First, jump over and complete the Project Inquiry here.

Once I receive your answers, I'll send an email to schedule your 30-minute consultation. During that call, we'll figure out exactly what you need and customize a package that's just right for you. We can also discuss the add-ons and payment plans that will work best for you.

Wait...what? I have so many more questions!

Questions are awesome because they're the only path to answers. 😉

TOO MUCH? WILL SOMETHING SIMPLER DO THE TRICK?

If your website needs are simpler than all of this, then the One-Day Website might be a better fit. You can get a custom designed site with up to 5 site pages, a blog, and more.
