Brand & Website Proposal
Prepared especially for Spurgeon Arts
Let's bring more beauty into the world.
When a customer unwraps your artwork—delicately unfolding the wrapping, running her fingers over the brushstrokes—you’ve done more than sell a product. You’ve added a richness to her life and home that only handmade art can bring.
We’re here to help you create the experience your art deserves; from the first click on your online boutique to the beautiful packaging it arrives in.
Let's go over the details...
This proposal includes:
01 | Brand Design
Putting your stamp on the world
Your brand is the starting point from which all creative flows. We take your unique vision and bring it to life through design and words.
When we are finished, your art business will be beautifully represented in a way that truly resonates with your clientele.
02 | Website Design
LAUNCHING YOUR ONLINE shop
As the online home for your business, your website will provide a high-end boutique experience that keeps customers coming back.
And to make running an online store easy, your site will be built on the user-friendly Shopify platform, and we’ll provide you with custom tutorials so you can run your online shop with confidence.
03 | Packaging + Print
delivering a memorable experience
Packaging and printed pieces are the perfect opportunities to surprise and delight your customers with unexpected touches. Done right, these pieces will give your customers an experience they can’t help but share with others.
01/ BRAND PLATFORM
You’ll be invited to an online app called Asana, where we’ll keep all of our tasks, due dates, and conversations in one place. We’ll get some initial information from you, and you’ll choose a date for your Brand Discovery Workshop.
We’ll meet in person (or online, if you prefer!) to talk all about your vision and goals for your business. This in-depth Brand Discovery Workshop will guide the creative strategy behind your brand and its online presence.
We’ll develop your Brand Platform, beginning with your logo. We’ll provide video walkthroughs and get your feedback throughout the process, refining your key brand elements.
At the same time, we’ll begin working on your social media strategy. By the end of this phase, you’ll be have a complete Brand Style Guide + Instagram setup so you can start spreading the word about your upcoming launch!
Next, we’ll get started on print design, perfecting the hands-on elements of your brand—from packaging to business cards . We’ll work directly with our trusted printers to ensure everything looks exactly as you envision it.
A WEBSITE MAKES IT REAL
02/ ONLINE STORE
It’s website kickoff week! We’ll start this phase off with an online strategy session. We’ll go over your goals and vision for the website, as well as any logistics about how your online store will work.
During this time, we’ll be busy designing, refining, and testing your website on the Shopify platform—checking in with you throughout.
It’s launch week! We’ll make any necessary refinements, make sure the website looks and works beautifully, and send you off to cut the virtual ribbon for your online store!
We help you skip to the good part:
creating and selling incredible art.

You might be wondering...
Yes! We require 25% upfront to book your project into our schedule, and rest of the project is typically paid in three 25% installments. If you need more options, just ask!
You’ll have access to your own project dashboard, which is how we’ll communicate and share files throughout our time working together (way easier to keep track of than emails!).
Please factor in these additional costs beyond your project:
- Shopify website platform monthly fees (starting at $29 per month)
- Online store credit card payment fees (2.9% + 30¢ per sale—this is a standard fee for accepting credit card payments online)
- Sales tax and shipping fees for your artwork (we can set up your website to automatically handle most common sales tax calculations, but you would need to remit and file any sales taxes. Please consult with a tax accountant for tax advice.)
- Any specific premium fonts, stock images, or online store apps you may request (our initial recommendations are included in your project fees)
- The cost of any physical materials (business cards, packaging, etc.) will be billed separately; don’t worry, we’ll provide estimates first, and work within your budget
You are the expert of your business, so your participation and input are essential! In order to keep the project on schedule, we ask that you plan time to review each item within 2 business days. If you know you’ll be away for part of our project, just let us know and we’ll plan our schedule accordingly.
You know the phrase, “Build, and they will come?” It doesn’t exactly apply to websites—you need to actively market your website to draw traffic in. Some successful strategies include using social media, email marketing, and paid ads—what will work for you will depend on your business and goals. (If you need help with this, we’re here for you!)
Having a website rank at the top of search results is understandably desirable! We can promise is that we’ll ensure your website is set up for success with SEO best practices kept in mind.
But not a lot of people realize that there are many factors that go into ranking a website beyond the initial website build (how many other websites are competing for the same keywords, how many websites are linking to yours, and more).
SEO is a long game that takes an ongoing investment of time and money. If the need arises, we’d be happy to refer you to an excellent SEO agency.
