What platform will my site be on?

I work exclusively with Squarespace to develop all websites here at paperook. Over the 5+ years I’ve been developing sites, I’ve noticed one consistent truth: you need to be able to edit and maintain your site when it’s done.

Will my website be easy to edit after you've set it up?

Absolutely. After you’ve approved of the website design, we’ll run through the basics of how to edit any of the features on your site. I’ll also hook you up with the amazing Customer Care team at Squarespace with an award-winning track record and responsive, 24/7 support.

Will my website look like just another template?

While it’s true that Squarespace as a platform is built on templates and we’ll develop your site on one of them, I take great care in building upon them in order to create a one-of-a-kind experience for your brand and your visitors.

Why do you charge so much?

The average website developed today may cost you somewhere between $5,000 and $7,000 depending on what you’re looking for. I’m able to keep my costs much more competitive because of the successful process I’ve established working with my clients and the benefits of using the Squarespace platform.

Can I make a website by myself?

In 2019, there are more tools at your fingertips than ever to build a site yourself. But let me ask you one question back - would you be better served trying to learn a new skill or by hiring a seasoned professional to establish your site for you so you can keep doing what you already love to do?

Can I keep my current domain?

Absolutely. As part of the process, I can help you redirect your current domain and point it to the Squarespace platform as though it never changed.

Is your website design service right for me?

I love helping other creatives build the websites they’ve always dreamt of for their businesses. If you enjoy collaborating with someone who is positive, hard-working, efficient, and who truly cares about your success, I’m the website designer for you.
