You're one-of-a-kind, and your website should be too. 

However, throughout my adventures in website design, I began to realize a few universal truths: 1.) not everyone is at a stage in their business where custom design makes sense for them, and 2.) most people don't have time to tinker around with a new website platform. 

Thus, my template customization services were born—helping busy business owners and artists like you create the website of your dreams for cheaper.

"Before working with Sarah, I was 

Sarah used her expertise and creative magic and designed a site that feels like something that came from me (but definitely didn't have the skills to create). She is thorough, clear about her process, and explains the steps in terms that are easy to understand. If you're looking for a designer who is fun, friendly, and most of all, brilliant, RUN to work with Sarah! She's the best there is."

Frequently Asked Questions

These templates are designed for ShowIt -- You've probably heard of Squarespace and Wix, but ShowIt is the best website building platform on the planet. The creative freedom is unmatched, which means we can tailor your site to your brand (instead of the other way around). And it's literally drag and drop (with no code!), so it's easier for you to update yourself than any of its competitors! Plus, it looks great on all devices. If you're curious whether or not ShowIt might be right for you, check out this blog post I wrote about ShowIt vs. Squarespace.

Together, we can change fonts, colors, content, and minor layout adjustments as included as the base price of this package. (You'd be shocked how unique a template can feel once all of that is implemented!) However, depending on your business, we may have to get a little more creative, which could alter the scope and price. Inquire here to so we can hop on a zoom and chat it out!

Hell yeah, I'd love to! I offer an SEO add-on that includes keyword research, backend optimization, and so much more. Check out the details on the pricing page.

Of course! I love working with other designers. However, depending on the design style, I may or may not be the right fit for your brand. When you inquire, include a link to your branding so I can see whether or not that's the case!

Sure thing! However, since a Kleist Creative template comes with the base price of working with me, I cannot offer discounted services due to choosing another designer's template. But I'd still love to customize it, if you'll have me :)
