Do you offer web design or web development?

I no longer offer website development services, but I may be able to help.

If you’re a developer looking for a designer who can make your website beautiful and user friendly, let’s connect! I can design the files you need.

If you're an entrepreneur looking for design and website development, let’s connect! I can design and create the files you need to provide to your developer.

If you’re looking for a simple way to create a beautiful and user friendly website, let’s connect! I can craft the designs you need and provide the functional files. I recommend using Squarespace - that’s what I use to power visualaurastudios.com.

What is it like to work with a professional designer?

I’m so glad you asked! Communication and transparency are key principles here at Visualaura Studios, so I’ve dedicated an entire page that outlines the design process.

 

BACK TO QUESTIONS


What file formats do I get at the end of my project?

I always provide final working files to use both in print and online. Generally, clients will receive the following file formats:

  • .jpg

  • .png

  • Transparent .png

  • .eps

  • PDF

  • Google Docs

You own all files once your final payment has been completed and you can use them however you wish.

I need a custom design. Can you do that?

Most likely, yes! I’m happy to do custom jobs – not every design project falls neatly into a category. I’m always up for a challenge! Send me a message and we’ll chat!

Do you outsource any of the work you do?

Nope! Visualaura Studios is a one-woman show so all of your design, from quotes and contracts to discovery and design is done by me – Laura. I work from home in my Vancouver studio and look forward to our Skype calls!

If this changes at any point, I’ll let you know. Transparency and honest communication are valued principles at Visualaura Studios.

 

BACK TO QUESTIONS


What kinds of clients do you work with?

I’ve worked with authors, entrepreneurs, small and large businesses, and everyone in between! I’m not picky about what my clients do, but I do care about the way they choose to do things. If you’re open minded, willing to collaborate and engage, happy to trust a professional with your design needs, and ready to invest (or curious about why you should invest) in your design, it’s likely we will mesh well.

What information do you need from me?

The more you know about the potential results you’re looking for, the better I can help. The questions I will ask depend on the size and scope of your project, what you do and what your goals are. Depending on the project, I’ll look into things like:

  • Your target audience

  • Your past clients

  • The way you want your project to be perceived

  • Your business goals

  • Your competition

If you haven’t done much research into these in the past, we’ll be getting into it together!

 

BACK TO QUESTIONS


Do you use contracts?

Absolutely! My contract template was drafted by an attorney and is designed to protect both of us while outlining expectations, work, and a timeline.

 

BACK TO QUESTIONS


I need my project done now. Can you start today?

Maybe, maybe not. If you need a project done now, message me now. I’ll always try to work with your deadlines and fit you into my schedule as soon as possible.

I value each of my clients and I put time into each project. To make sure every client gets quality designs, I limit the number of clients I work with at any one time.

 

BACK TO QUESTIONS


What kinds of payments do you accept?

Preferred payment methods are bank e-transfer, Visa or Mastercard, or certified cheque. All transactions are in Canadian dollars.
