Web Design FAQ

Last updated:

1. What services do you offer as a freelance web designer? 

I offer design for brochure, e-commerce, box office and other user-centric sites. I’ve also had experience designing e-commerce and chat applications, along with games for mobile.


2. How much do you charge for your web design services?

How long is a piece of string…? My pricing depends on the complexity of the project, the features required, and the amount of time it will take to complete. As a rule, my day rate is £280 and £35 hourly for web services, though larger projects will be priced at a discounted rate. I provide custom estimates based on the individual requirements of each project and client. 


3. How long does it take to complete a website design project?

That very much depends on the complexity and the features required. A simple website may take a few weeks, while a more complex e-commerce site could take several weeks or months. Additionally, the style of the site can add more time. For example, if you want bespoke illustration throughout the site as opposed to the use of pre-supplied imagery, this will lengthen the time required. An estimated timeline will be provided for sign-off, subject to change requests.


4. What is your design process like?

The design process typically involves an initial chat to understand the functionality and aesthetic requirements, along with any initial site mapping. Following that, the creation of wireframes and designs in the form of Figma prototypes. After a pre-agreed number of feedback rounds, and once the design is approved, I can package up files and provide to your developers with a full set of documentation.


5. What if my project is agile?

That’s fine, we can discuss what works best for your developers and come up with alternative solutions such as creating a design system that can be applied to an evolving framework, reducing the need to keep coming back to design for further iterations.


6. Can you redesign an existing website?

Certainly. Tweaking an existing site is sometimes all you require. I can build off of legacy Adobe or Figma files you may already have to hand or convert older Photoshop or Illustrator files (ew…) to something a little more workable.


7. What programmes do you use in your web design projects?

Mostly Figma these days, but I can work with other programs like Adobe XD if required.


8. Can you provide examples of your previous work?

There are some on here, and I can provide additional examples if you wish to see something specific.


9. How do you handle revisions and feedback during the design process?

I’ll always pre-agree the number of design revisions prior to committing. There’s always going to be disagreeing opinions in your team, so if it looks like we’re going round in circles we can always arrange a meeting to hash out any sticking points. Once decisions are made and sign-offs are complete, any additional feedback that sits outside of the original scope will be treated like additional time and be billed at a pre-agreed rate.
