Your website isn’t just a collection of copy, images, and code.
It’s your personality — on the internet.
Shouldn’t it be just as stylish, unique, and hardworking as you?

Maybe you’ve managed to settle on a header design you’re ok with, and you’ve figured out how to make a few plugins do what you want. But the truth is, you just aren’t as proud of your website as you are of the work you put into it.

That’s where I come in. I design websites for bloggers and creative entrepreneurs who love their work, but don’t love their website. Who are tired of spending hours trying to write code they don’t really understand when they could be writing posts or working for clients (or maybe even taking the weekend off). Who want their work to stand out, not that website header that’s still not quite right.

Because when your website works as hard as you do? You can get back to the work that you do best, and watch the compliments roll in.

Detail-oriented? I've got you covered.

01

Contact me to get the conversation started. We’ll discuss a few more details, then set up a phone conversation to discuss your needs, what I recommend, and answer any questions you may have. I’ll provide an estimate for the work, and we’ll get started!

02

Once you book your project, you’ll receive a contract so we’re both clear on how everything works, an invoice for the deposit to reserve your spot on the schedule, and your questionnaire so you can tell me all about your goals, needs, and preferences.

03

Once your project begins, I’ll review your questionnaire and share my initial thoughts and recommendations, so you can make sure I’ve understood what you’re looking for.

04

Then, the fun really begins! I’ll design a mockup of your home page so we can really focus on the overall design of your site and get it just right, since those elements carry over to the rest of your pages. You’ll have 3 rounds of revisions to perfect the details!

05

Once the home page design is approved, I’ll design a mockup of your remaining pages, and you’ll have another 3 rounds of revisions to get those pages just right.

06

Once the complete design is approved, it’s time for you to relax and let me handle the rest! I’ll code your new design, then you’ll have the chance to look over everything before launch.

07

Then, we’ll schedule a date for launch, and you can celebrate your brand new site! I’ll package up your brand guide and instructions, so you’ll have everything you need to make all your visuals match your new design and keep your website running smoothly.

But you don’t have to take my word for it . . .

She understands how to make your site work for you, your visitors, and your business.

“It was a true pleasure to work with Lisa. I’ve worked with many designers on sites big and small and have never before had such a smooth design and build process as with Elembee. Lisa asks all the the right questions, is preemptive in solving problems before they can even exist, and understands how to make your site work for you, your visitors, and your business. I couldn’t be happier with my new site.”

Haleigh Walsworth, Making Magique

A clean, contemporary design that totally reflects my brand and I have no doubt will be a large factor in my getting new work.

“Lisa has not only created a beautiful website for me that I’m enormously proud of but she has also been incredibly proactive, supportive, patient and thorough during the design and development process. I have received very positive feedback to my new site and this is entirely down to Lisa’s vision, design and flawless implementation. She has taken my vague and fuzzy ideas and delivered a clean, contemporary design that totally reflects my brand and I have no doubt will be a large factor in my getting new work. I have already passed on Lisa’s details to my colleagues and friends and highly recommend her to anyone seeking a well crafted and beautiful web presence.”

So, what does it cost?

Projects generally range from $2500-$5000 depending on the number of pages you need designed and the complexity of functionality for development. Here are a few starting points for reference:

  • Blog design starts at $2500
  • Website design starts at $3000
  • Website + blog design starts at $4000

Before you book your project, we’ll discuss your specific needs, then I’ll make my recommendations and provide an estimate.

What you’ll receive:

  • An initial phone conversation, so you can get your questions answered, before you book.
  • A questionnaire and review of your goals (so I can help you actually make them happen), your needs (so you can stop wasting time on the maintenance issues that annoy you), and your preferences (so I can make your design as stylish as you are!).
  • Mockups of your site design, so we can perfect all those little details and bring your vision to life.
  • WordPress development, so you can easily add and change content yourself — without messing with code.
  • Installation of recommended plugins, to help you keep your site safe, secure, and running easy.
  • Brand guide and instruction manual, so you have the know-how to keep your visuals consistent and your website up-to-date.

Questions? I've got answers.

How long does it take?
Timeline depends on the complexity of your project, but you can generally expect blog design + development to take 8-10 weeks from your project start date, and website and blog/site design + development to take 10-12 weeks.

How does payment work?
When you book your project, you’ll pay a non-refundable deposit of 20% of your project cost to secure your spot on the schedule. The remaining balance is split into two equal payments of 40% of your project cost, one due before design begins on your project start date, and final payment due after the design is approved and before development begins.

Do you accept credit cards or PayPal?
Yes. You’ll receive invoices through Freshbooks with an option to pay via credit card or PayPal, or you may send a check via mail.

When can we get started?
My schedule is usually booked one to three months in advance. I’ll give you an estimated start date when we discuss your project, and once you sign your contract and pay your deposit, you’ll be added to the schedule.

Do you work with Blogger?
Sorry, I only design for WordPress. However, I’m happy to migrate your blog from Blogger! (I promise it’s not as scary as you think. At least not when I help you!)

Once I saw the end product, it truly blew my mind.

“I had such an amazing experience working with Lisa. I had never worked on branding a website, let alone my very own blog, and I was a little nervous because I wanted it to be perfect. The best part of working with Lisa was her ability to make the process so easy and fun. She was able seamlessly to take my ideas and create something that outdid my expectations consistently. And once I saw the end product, it truly blew my mind. I couldn’t believe I finally had something so pretty and functional to call my very own. I am so proud of my site and I can’t wait to work with her again someday!”
