Services

We offer experienced and comprehensive help for a wide range of business needs.

Logos

Investing in a professionally designed logo instantly gives your business an image upgrade. Consistent, custom design and compelling marketing materials help your business appear professional, credible, and dependable.

Websites

I create clean and professional websites for an economical price. As of 2012, 85% of consumers use the internet to find local businesses and about 10% of all website access was being done through mobile devices. Exposure is the top reason to get your business online now.

Marketing

Social media networking can be a complex and intimidating venture. Let me get you set up and either show you how to navigate your network or do it for you. In additon, I can assist with advertising locally and a marketing campaign.

Investing in Hardister Design’s professionally designed marketing materials instantly gives your business an image upgrade. Consistent, custom design and compelling marketing materials help your business appear professional, credible, and dependable. The logo, brochure, website, etc. that you present to the world is the first, and sometimes last, impression you will make on your audience. Hiring Hardister Design to create these materials for you will ensure you make a positive and lasting impression.

In addition, hiring a professional conveys that you value your own services/product enough to invest in them. That sends a message. Hiring a professional isn’t nearly as expensive as many think and most of my clients have, from one job, made back the amount spent for my services, simply because they now had attractive exposure. Most times a great logo, advertisement or website is all it takes to entice a potential client to pick up the phone and schedule an appointment or service. If you have any questions, please call me and we can discuss your needs and come up with a marketing plan together.

What do I offer?

New and Improved

I work with WordPress themes that are aesthetically pleasing as well as technologically advanced so that you can trust your business is on the cutting edge.

Do You Need Help?

I want to help your business succeed. Let me know if you have any questions, if you need help learning a new technology or resource. That’s what I am here for.

Elegant & Clean

My designs are timeless and at once current. I do hours of research for all of my projects to fit my clients needs best.

Beautiful

I strive for beautiful designs every. single. time. Let’s work together to make your industry attractive.

If you need any help with marketing your business…

The Process

My approach is unique and highly personal. I truly enjoy getting to know my clients and discussing their projects in-depth. Our initial complementary consultation can vary from one hour to several in the pursuit of the very clearest vision.

We will meet to determine your needs and vision for your project. I will take notes and ask you to supply examples of work that you admire. For websites, I like to see 3 other sites that have features you envision for your site. I will submit my notes to you for review to confirm we are on the same page.

I will prepare a formal proposal and contract for you.  I will need a flash drive or DropBox upload with all images (as well as full descriptions and explanations you want included or searchable), verbiage, graphics, logos, headshots, biographies, pdf’s, etc. (all supporting content for the entire project) before I can begin. Once the proposal has been approved and accepted in writing, I require a signed contract and deposit before I can begin any work.

I will choose a WordPress theme based on your technical needs and aesthetic wants, or I can also build a custom theme.

Timeline: Please allow 4 weeks for the completion of a standard website.

Changes: After the project has been completed, web photo and text updates can be made by the client via a built in content management system. I will provide  the client with a complimentary basic instructional sheet and tutorial to navigate these. For print and web, additional or advanced technical changes and updates will be billed hourly.

  • I gave Hardister Design all my ideas (more like a can of worms), and Crystal was able to pull everything together even better than I had imagined! It was a complete website rebuild, and I cannot be happier with it. She suggested things I had not considered, and answered every question - provided excellent customer service, quick responses. I would definitely refer Hardister Design to anyone. Thank you Crystal!

    Rob Zwolinski· Pharmaceuticals
  • Napa Graphic Solutions [Hardister Design] has provided my small business with a new identity through a new logo, new print materials and a new website. All of these individual products were well supplied by this one company....one-stop shopping, as the saying goes. I have really enjoyed working with the owner and designer. She is a good listener as well as creative, and was able to apply all of my requirements into a marketing and identity package for my business. I have already recommended her to several friends and colleagues.
