Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a card?
I do not use cards. There are many accessible ways to keep my contact information. The world is full of trash. I try to produce as little trash as possible, especially if it has my name on it. To learn more about my view of cards, I covered it in a past blog post: 5 Reasons I Don’t Use Business Cards, and You Shouldn’t Either.
What do you use for domain hosting?
I prefer GoDaddy for domain hosting but I am willing to work with another domain host. Cost to the business tends to be higher when not using GoDaddy domain hosting.
What do you use for file/website hosting?
I exclusively work with Flywheel hosting. You are welcome to look them up: https://getflywheel.com. I host clients through my Flywheel account and the client pays me a monthly or annual fee or the client is welcome to purchase their hosting directly through Flywheel themselves if they prefer.
Are you willing to work with my companies hosting?
I will be happy to troubleshoot your site for problems if you are not with my required hosting company. However, I will not build a site or maintain a site that is not hosted by Flywheel Hosting.
Why are you so adamant about using Flywheel hosting?
Where can I start? Security, Speed, SEO, Backups, Ease-of-Use, and familiarity with the system are a good start when answering this question. The bottom line is that without my preferred hosting, I cannot provide the expected quality level of service and deliverables. There is simply no compromise in this area.
Do you produce packaging or print materials?
I have done packaging work for major brands like Rockstar Energy Drinks in the past but graphic design is not my core service. I am happy to talk more about your specific needs in a consultation. Usually, I can batch print work in with a website package.
Do you work with brands outside of Maui?
Yes, I work with many brands outside of Maui. Currently, off-island brands account for about 60% of my businesses revenue. I do not actively market or pursue relationships with off-island brands. I observe a common need for the businesses on Maui that I can specifically serve.
How much do you charge?
I have quite literally worked on projects ranging from two thousand dollars to one hundred thousand dollars in the last twelve months. Every project has its own needs. I can go over this in consultation.
Do you do online stores?
Yes, I do online stores. I have built or worked on nearly 100 e-commerce sites.
