With the amount of requests we’ve received this week, it’s like someone let the Web Design Party Bus off at The Moxie Girls™ Lounge. You guys are absolutely drunk with ideas for your websites and we are overwhelmed with exciting projects. Thank you for thinking of us! If you’ve sent an estimate in the last couple weeks, make yourself at home, pour yourself a cocktail and we’ll be with you momentarily. :cheese:
While we’re working our little fingers like mad to create incredible designs for our current couture design clients, we’ve also been busily creating designs for our labor of love, Femmeplates™. We decided earlier this year that while we love creating designs for our clients, we also wanted to cut loose and design pretty things just because. We have to design for passion, not paycheck sometimes. It helps us keep things fresh for every client and not get in a rut, which can be easy to do if you’re not mindful.
Now, that’s not to say Femmeplates will be free. Let’s not get crazy! These will be stylish, mostly female-centric, moderately-priced premium designs for WordPress, Blogger or straight up HTML/CSS markup. Femmeplates are
regurgitated freebie layouts with different banners, these are not templates created by others and modified by us, these are luxury designs lovingly created by us in our spare time so you can give your blog The Moxie Girls touch without waiting in the queue until you’re collecting social security.
There will be a few tiers of pricing, depending on the level of exclusivity you choose. We also must consider the licensing for the images used in the design, so that all parties involved get their copyright needs met. We respect stock illustrators (and all artists), their desire to protect their creations and we hope you do, too.
As these are designs of passion, so to speak, it means the looks you’ll find could be anything that strikes our fancy. It could be seasonal, it could be bridal, it could be mommy-oriented, hobby-oriented, professional or whatever blows our dress up at the time. We won’t be taking specific requests for Femmeplates — that would require a Request for Proposal for a custom project. But, we
open to hearing your ideas, so if there’s a type of design you’d like to see in the Femmeplates showcase, drop us a line. It doesn’t mean we will do it immediately, if at all, so don’t get bent if you don’t see it for a while. It’s nothing personal! It simply means we’ll tuck it into our hat for the future.
The initial offering on August 11th will be select. It’s a soft launch for testing the waters, so first come, first served. No hair-pulling and no biting. We don’t have that kind of insurance. 😉
Have a great weekend!
