Here’s an overview of the vip design Experience:

We’re not cutting corners around here.

the vip design experience is an investment of $3,000-$4,500.

Your Design Goals Reality

- Josh c.

"Maya approaches each project with curiosity and wants to do whatever she can to achieve next level branding."

-erica r.

“Maya is seriously AMAZING!!!! She is understanding and wants the best for both you and your brand.”

- Giselle w.

"Maya has a knack for being informative and making you feel welcomed and appreciated as a business person. In other words, she is a Godsend!"

Take it from these sweet clients who’ve worked with me:

Being able to extend your brand strategy beyond your website to show up well on social media, email marketing, etc.

Jumping for joy when people contact you via your website who actually want what you offer and love your brand.

Having a clearer grasp on the brand you're building, and how it aligns with your vision, goals, and ideal client.

I want you to walk away from this experience:

My job is to translate all of that into design that’s rooted in authentic strategy so that those goals feel more attainable.

Your job is to show up with your vision and goals. 

- elyse v.

"Not only is my new website more user friendly, which I think will boost time spent on my site and the amount of pages visited, but my customized pages look more professional...making Elyse Creates more appealing to brands."

-Janet k.

"I would highly recommend anyone to utilize Maya’s services. She is organized, attentive to detail, highly motivated and very pleasant to work with.”

“initial impressions are important to every website.”

More kind words...

For my clients, working with me has not only led to a brand and website they’re proud of, but also personal breakthroughs, like

It’s time to stand out and make the greater impact you’ve been dreaming of.


It just means that there’s a disconnect between what you want to communicate and what’s coming across to your audience. And that’s totally fixable!

The world needs what you have to offer, and you can have a brand and website that works for your business.

Often, when our business isn’t getting the results we hoped for, we start to doubt ourselves. If your current branding and site aren’t working - know that’s not a reflection of you (or your worth).

Don’t let self-doubt keep you from taking steps

Let’s Work Together to Make 
Your Design Goals Reality

if we don't finish in 2 weeks:

In the event that we don’t get your new brand and site completed in 2 weeks, we’ll chat to discuss how much more work is needed and you can reserve additional time at my current hourly rate.

My process is set up to help us maximize our time together during your two week experience. It’s important that you have your pre-project homework ready to go on kick-off day, so that there are no delays. 

rescheduling policy:

No worries! Life happens, and I am willing to accommodate you.

Because I book out my calendar in advance, reschedule at least 2 weeks before your project start date to avoid a $150 cancellation fee. Your initial project deposit reserves your spot and is non-refundable.

for websites larger than 10 pages:

I can certainly design more than 10 pages for you, just be aware that this will impact the project timeline and investment. During your discovery call, we’ll chat about your project needs and come up with an estimate that’s appropriate.

for website-only projects:

I have served several clients who loved their current branding, and just needed a fresh web design! Because the bulk of projects are often focused on the website, I recommend that we stick to the 2 week timeline at the current project investment. If you're in need of other designs (ex: print collateral, social media graphic templates, etc.) we can chat about swapping these in place of brand designs.

for branding-only projects:

While most clients benefit from having the all-inclusive experience of brand and website design, if you’re just looking for brand strategy and design right now, I can help you. The Branding VIP Experience is one week (5 business days), with a current investment of $750. Everything listed in the “Branding” section of the package details above is included. 

Yes! The VIP design package has a payment plan of 4 equal payments. Your initial deposit is due as soon as you sign the contract (to reserve your spot), with the remaining 3 payments spaced throughout the course of your project. Please contact me at for more information on how payments work.

Are payment plans available?

At this time, I don’t offer copywriting services. However, I’ll provide you with copywriting resources to help you write copy that connects and converts! Since I want your website to be the best it can be, I recommend investing in the services of a professional copywriter and photographer, if you can. I am also happy to recommend resources for finding high quality stock photos.

Will you write my website text & find images for me?

A few key things I will need are: your completed homework assignments (including website content), Showit login and domain information, and for you to show up with a willing, positive attitude! After signing the contract and paying your first invoice, you will receive welcome emails with more in-depth information about what you’ll need to provide and how to submit it.

What will I need to provide for you to create my brand + site?

I have served several clients who loved their current branding, and just needed a fresh web design! I recommend that we stick to the 2 week timeline. If you're in need of other designs (ex: print collateral, social media graphic templates, etc.) we can chat about swapping these in place of brand designs.

what if i already love my brand?

Yes, you will need to pay for a monthly or yearly Showit plan that is separate from my designer fee. I recommend the Showit + Basic Blog Plan for websites with a small or new blog. Check out the Showit + Advanced Blog Plan if you have a large website and blog. You can view Showit's pricing here.

Do I pay for a Showit plan?

Showit is a website platform that is perfect for showcasing creative brands like photographers, therapists, life coaches, nonprofits, and bloggers. It features an easy drag + drop editor. The Showit + Blog plans integrate with WordPress for powerful blogging without the hard to edit site.
