PROJECT PACKAGES

We offer comprehensive project packages for website design and development, and professional writing services. Our package inclusions were created with your portfolio in mind. We can create custom packages for businesses and institutions who are looking to work with us beyond the scope of these individual project parameters.

We also offer website audits of your pre-existing website, along with curatorial services for your digital art portfolio. Our hourly consultation allows you the flexibility to work with AIY Studio without jumping to one of our larger project packages, below.

TOOLS

We'll make calls using Skype, a free video conferencing software. For packages, we also use this tool for our post-project walkthrough, and will provide a video recording for your future reference.

To keep things organized, we use a project management tool, and you'll have your own client account so you can keep track of the business side of our work together, such as invoices, emails and deadlines. This tool connects to your email, so there's no need to log into the client account to access information about your project, send responses or upload materials.

We create your website using host and website builder Squarespace.com*, which includes a free domain name with every new website.

To craft written content, you'll provide us with any previous biographies, statements, resumes and CVs that may or may not be online in order to further inform our writing.

* While we create your website, Squarespace.com is the website host (i.e. a home where your website lives on the internet); the annual host fee is paid directly to Squarespace.com in order to keep it up and running, and this fee is not included in our package pricing.

PROCESS

First, choose your desired service and complete our questionnaire contact form. We'll then schedule a complimentary consultation over Skype to review your goals, and learn how we can tell your story, together.

After our call, you'll receive an invoice and work agreement via email. * We require a non-refundable 20% deposit in order to secure your spot in our schedule. This will be applied to your total payment.

Once we've received these completed materials, you'll receive your client portal login information and activate your account. The client portal is where you can optionally track the business side of our work together, such as documents, emails and deadlines. We'll also provide a three-minute tutorial video to help you understand how to use your client portal.

You'll then receive our welcome packet, which includes information to help you understand more about digital files, images, and file sharing services, so that you can deliver the content we need for our work together.

We'll follow with a request for your project content. Please note that your art should be presentation-ready; we resize images for web but make no additional edits or changes to your original work. If sending us more than 20 or 30 images per portfolio page, we will gladly curate your content for you based on your purchased package.

We work together to tell a cohesive story about you the artist and the art you create. We create a website design in "trial mode" based on the parameters of the package you purchased and what will best tell your story.

We'll go through one content revision round using our project management tool. After revision, the project is complete!

If a website client, we'll create a Squarespace account for, and direct you to pay for the Squarespace annual hosting plan. The cost of hosting is separate from our work together and goes straight to Squarespace.com to keep your site up and running. Working with AIY

Studio gives you some extra edge: you'll receive 20% off the cost of hosting your first year with purchase of annual host plan.

Within a week of project completion, you'll schedule a walkthrough with us in order to review either your website or your written content. If a website client, we'll also show you how to connect your social media account(s) to your website. You'll also receive the video recording of our walkthrough for future reference.

Your project is now complete and ready to be shared − we'll do the same! We'll feature your art across our various platforms based on the package you purchased. Two weeks from completion, we'll check-in to make sure you're on track, have downloaded all of your bonus materials, and can access and use the "Client Portal."

Check our FAQ if you have any questions, and complete your questionnaire to get started with us at AIY Studio!
