Bay Mare Design Logo

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a wide range of experience when it comes to branding, website design, and website development. I learned how to code websites as a kid thanks to my software developer father. During this time, I also began to play around with Photoshop. As I got older, I realized that this was my passion – and something I wanted to go to school for. I graduated from Portland Community College with a degree in Website Development and Design. While in school, I freelanced for a variety of different small businesses (including wedding photographers). After graduation, I was hired as a junior designer at a dental marketing firm. After a couple of years, I transitioned to a different marketing firm that allowed me to work with an even wider variety of clients. 

I quickly realized that I could utilize my experience to help equine businesses – and tie in my lifelong love for horses.

In most cases, the pre-set brand and website packages that I offer fit most equine business needs. If you end up needing something extra, I can definitely help create a custom branding package that fits your unique needs.

Currently I do not offer design packages that only include a single logo. In my experience, a successful brand identity can’t be built off a logo alone. I understand that this is not a philosophy that everyone shares. If you are looking for a logo only package, I’d be happy to share the names of several talented designers who can help you.

Yes. Most packages can be paid in two installments. If you need additional payment options, please let me know. I’m happy to work with you to find an option that works best for you and your business.

The timeline of your project will depend on a number of factors including the type of project, your response time, and the number of revisions requested. Most brand projects are completed within 4-6 weeks, and most website projects are completed within 6-8 weeks. Please note that these timelines are estimates only, and may vary depending on your specific project.

If you’re ready to make the first step towards booking a design project, that’s great! Please fill out the contact form to get started. Once I review your submission, I’ll share a link to schedule your free discovery call.

I provide customized website tutorial videos to all website design clients at the end of each project, so you can feel confident updating and maintaining your website going forward. For those clients who don’t want to take this responsibility on, I do offer paid monthly maintenance packages.

Yes! I do offer e-commerce website design services for clients. I offer options on both WordPress (WooCommerce) and Shopify.

Yes! All of my website packages come with basic search engine optimization to help your website rank in search engines. If you need a more in depth SEO plan, get in touch with me! I can help create a custom package for your unique needs.

During the initial discovery call, I’ll spend some time getting to know more about you and your business. We’ll talk about your goals for the future, and how a brand or website can help with them. I’ll provide suggestions and tips that I think you’ll benefit from, and walk you through next steps.

My packages start at $600, but most clients end up investing between $1295 and $1895 on a project.

Yes! My specialty is equine businesses, and I much prefer to stick to it. 

With that being said, I do occasionally accept projects outside of the horse world – so definitely get in touch if you have a project that you think might be fun 🙂

While I love social media marketing my own business, I’m not equipped to help clients with social media management. I can, however, recommend a handful of fantastic equine-specific social media managers that might be able to help you.
