But even worse, you’re tired of wasting money.

Your time is a precious commodity that you could be using to make more of your products to sell, or provide more of your valuable services in the world instead of struggling trying to make WordPress or Squarespace work for you.

Not to mention, you want to spend more time with your precious family. 

You are ready to to go pro and have someone else do all of the work for you.

Then YOU, my friend, are my people.

you’re my people if:

  • You’re SO TIRED of doing it all yourself.
  • You're ready for a gorgeous, custom Squarespace Website.
  • You're ready for a professional graphic designer to make it for you.
  • You want a high-end, quality, and laid-back experience with a pro walking beside you every step of the way.
  • You're ready to quit playing small and ready to take your vision to the next level.
  • You're motivated to make it happen, like. Right. Now.

Does that sound like you???

I’ve worked with some of my clients for almost 10 years. Here’s what one happy & return customer has to say about working with me.

Laurie is an absolute dream to work with. By “dream” I mean someone who has the unmatched ability to ask all the right questions to make sure she knows exactly what I’m dreaming of for a project and then translate my answers into a beautiful, marketable product that surpasses my expectations. She is uniquely talented at knowing how to understand what her clients need while also offering her expert guidance to making the end result even more beautiful and organized than originally planned. Her incredibly quick turnaround time on projects is the cherry on top! Her skills for design and functionality have proven to be just the perfect combination of creating beauty that works really well. The result has been a more beautiful product to be able to offer my customers and the promise of ease of use to seal the deal. I’ve received rave review after rave review from my customers who have gone out of their way to thank me for this. It is directly a result of Laurie’s beautiful work. I hire her again and again.

what makes me different

What you get with a graphic designer (meaning, me!) is someone with an eye for design. So, not only will you get a well-designed and functional site, you’ll also get a gorgeous and uniquely YOU website. 

"IF YOU'RE SEEING ME IN YOUR SITE, I'VE FAILED YOU COMPLETELY." - Laurie Jacobsen.

I’ve had over 10 years experience building sites from the ground up with code-only, Adobe Flash, WordPress and Squarespace. I know what I’m doing! And because I’ve had so much experience, I’m FAST! My builds takes weeks, not months.

it’s not all one-size-fits-all over here!

One of the things that I offer in most of my Squarespace web design packages is a 40+-page workbook to help you get to the core of who you are, the core of who your business is and the functionality you want and need for your site. What you’ll end up with when finished are: a brand design guideline, TONS of copy you’ve written yourself for your site (even though you don’t realize you’re doing it), and a very clear idea of what you want and need in a site.

You’re getting a one of a kind experience and a workbook that is worth $499 if sold separately. It’s value, however, is truly PRICELESS in how it helps you gain brand clarity!

 

✵More time

✵More money

✵Less Frustration
 

so, does that sound good?

 
 
 

you + me: the process

  • We’ll talk by phone and probably laugh a lot, because, fun.
  • I’ll send you an invoice for ½ of the agreed upon amount.
  • Once you pay, I’ll send you some (okay a lot of) homework (you’ll LOVE it!) and also something special ;-)
  • You’ll promptly send me back your homework because you’re soooooooo excited to have a shiny new website!!!
  • You’ll pay ¼ of the remainder.
  • We’ll talk again face to face online to go over the responses to your homework. No grades, just fun.
  • I’ll design your site, which is 100% fun for me.
  • We’ll talk again face to face online where I’ll show you your shiny new website, you’ll be THRILLED (and maybe cry just like they do on Fixer Upper!).
  • You’ll send me any changes that we don’t take care of during our face to face.
  • I’ll make the changes.
  • You’ll pay me the next ¼ of the money.
  • We’ll talk again face to face and I’ll turn over your website + the link to a private client only page with a video tutorial and other free info to help you keep your site updated. 
  • We’ll drink champagne!!!

 

This can all take as little as a couple of weeks depending on how quickly you get the homework back to me.

 

Keep the brain space open for inspiration!

what can i make for you?

 

Squarespace is a REALLY awesome web hosting platform and has so many beautiful features, such as mobile responsive sites, so that everything looks as perfect on your phone as it does on a computer screen. They are clean, fresh templates, that will be easy for you to maintain once I’ve completed your design.

I will teach you everything you need to know to take over your site and keep it amazing. Having said that, as a client, I will always be available to you for easy answers. If you want me to maintain your site and provide updates, that’s an additional cost.

frequently asked questions

+ how long does the process take?

Once I get your homework back, it can take me as little as a few days to a couple of weeks, providing you're fully engaged during the design phase.

+ how many edits do I get?

You will have unlimited edits during the design phase and I'll check in with you a couple of weeks after we are done to see if you want any other small changes.

+ how much does Squarespace cost?

There are several plans ranging from $12 per month to $46 per month depending on when you pay and what your needs are. Most people fall into the $12-$18 a month range. It's VERY reasonable!

+ how does payment work

Fifty percent of the agreed upon price is due up front. On launch day, before I turn the site over to you, the other 50% is due.
