About Me

Kia ora, I’m Liv - a freelance web designer and Webflow developer based in Napier, Aotearoa / New Zealand.

My Webflow journey

I've been designing and building websites ever since I first learnt to slice them up in photoshop the 'old school way' at college (UCOL) in 2002.

Over the years when looking for content management systems and website builders, I tried a handful of platforms; Modx, Couch CMS, Joomla, Pinegrow, Macaw, Wordpress. None of them quite hit the mark when it came to a user-friendly, flexible system that my clients could easily use.

Then in 2013, I found Webflow. Finally I was able to quickly build unique looking websites in a more visual manner, and have confidence that my clients could edit their websites easily with no complicated backends they couldn't figure out.

Webflow has been a game-changer in my web design process. Now as a freelance web designer I utilise my (15+ yrs) design and marketing studio background and experience to craft unique, high quality, well-designed responsive websites that my clients love.

My Website Build Process

A website design and build usually takes between 4-6 weeks, depending on the complexity of the project. I've outlined the major steps we'll go through in building your website, so you know what to expect, and when to expect it.

01

Define business goals

1 Hour

Once you’ve submitted my project form we’ll arrange a time get together to discuss your business goals and target audience.

02

Website audit

3 Days

Using these goals as a base, I’ll audit your current website (if you have one) to get a good picture of where you’ve come from, and where you need to go.

03

Website proposal

3 Days

I’ll then provide you with a fixed-price proposal to achieve this, and provide a project timeline so you know what to expect, and when, with no surprises.

04

Design

2–4 Weeks

I’ll design your new site based on the architecture and goals we’ve defined using beautiful typography, colour combinations and images in a cohesive and seamless design to represent and uplift your brand.

05

Build

2–4 Weeks

Once you’ve approved the designs, I’ll bring them to life in Webflow, adding simple interactions that compliment the design. I’ll build the CMS if required, and add any integrations. Once ready, I’ll send you a test link to view.

06

Launch, and grow!

1 Day + onwards

Once you’ve approved your test link, I’ll launch your new site! Once live, you can edit the site yourself if you chose CMS, or ask me to add and pages and integrations later as needed, when your business develops.

Common Website Build Questions

Have questions? You might find the answer below. If not, email me.

Can you give me an idea of pricing for a complete design and build?

Because each project is unique, pricing varies and are estimated individually. However to give you an idea, a medium-sized non-ecommerce website (3-5 pages) generally involves an investment price of around $4k (give or take depending on specific requirements). Ongoing projects and website updates are invoiced at my hourly rate at the end of the month.

Do you do photography and copywriting?

As part of my process I take the information you provide me from the questions I send you at the beginning of the project, and restructure it to ensure it flows well and makes sense. I'll also include stock photography if it will enhance the design. Getting professional photography will elevate the look and feel of your website presence, so I recommend it if your budget allows for it. Let me know if this is something you want and I can organise a quote from a local professional photographer.

What if I only need you to build the site in Webflow, not redesign it?

If you're wanting to move your site across from another platform (such as Wordpress) but you're happy with the design, just let me know on my project form and I can provide you with a quote to do this.

Can you design my logo as well?

Yes, just let me know in the comments on my project form so I can factor that into your quote.
