Here you can find several frequently asked questions and the answers. If you have any other questions, send me a message!
How do we get started?
You’ll start by filling out my contact form to tell me about your business and what type of project you’re interested in. There are a few ways to do this, either from the work with me pages or the contact page. From there, we will have a complimentary consultation at no cost to you. This is 1-1, either live in person or conference/video call depending on your location. Following the consultation, I'll create a project proposal that includes timeline, pricing, and additional information for your project. Once you've approved, you’ll receive project terms + make your deposit to reserve your project and you're on your way to brand elevation!
do I need to purchase a domain before i start my website design project?
No, there are several options. Often times, working with me on your site design I can get your domain discounted to you. We can go through Squarespace or a third party domain. If you have already purchased from a third party, we can transfer your domain.
how much is it to host via squarespace?
Subscription costs vary, this is outlined in the discovery stage of your website design package or in the complimentary consultation. The pricing depends on your business needs. Marissa Monroe Studio, LLC is a Squarespace Circle Member. This means you receive 20% off your first year of Squarespace + an experienced web designer + professional on your project! Win-win, right?

do you take on other projects outside of web design + branding?
Yes! My main focus is on web design, branding, graphic design and coaching. Branding primarily for businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profits, but I have spent a lot of time working with clients and members of the community on personal branding. Other projects I take on include brand coaching, stationery design, invitation design, presentation material, apparel design and lapel pin design.
