About

What is MuzArt About

MuzArt Studio is a boutique studio building custom responsive websites.

It's not possible to design for everyone, so the focus is solely on creating designs for:

  • Personal Brands
  • Sole Proprietors
  • Small Business Owners

I do front-end responsive web design; meaning there is no back-end, server-side programming for database applications. There are other available tools for data gathering without the need for extensive and time-exhaustive measures, and at a fraction of the cost of back-end coding.

Creative Services

I intend to keep my client pool small so I can dedicate my time and effort in creating something beautiful and functional for them.

Responsive Web Design

Responsive design is building a website that dynamically scales its content and elements to match the screen size on which it is viewed, be it desktop, tablets or mobile devices. It keeps images from rendering larger than the screen width, preventing the need for mobile-device visitors to do any further screen adjustments to read your content.

Domain & Hosting Registration

Domain name search and registration and website hosting using a trusted hosting service, Digiserv.

Jotform Form Building & Integration

Creating basic shopping cart and other data-gathering forms which can be integrated into your website.

Mailchimp Email Setup & Integration

Setting up of an email list using a popular and easy to use service and integrated into your website.

F.A.Q

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is royalty-free photography? What if they are not appropriate?

    Royalty-free means that stock photos available online can be used on your website, without obtaining a license. However, sometimes the selection of photos are very limited or of poor quality or not appropriate for your concept. Paid stock photography provides high quality and an almost unlimited selection, but will require purchasing from popular stock photo companies like iStock Photo, Shutterstock as either a once-off fee per photo or on a subscription basis. So yes, it can be included, but we can discuss the best options at optimal costs.

  • Content copy is taking the existing information you have about your business and re-writing them into a meaniful form, that will provide a logical flow on your website. It will include keywords that can be searched by internet search giants like Google or Bing. I most often will write the copy for you if needed but this will incur a charge in addition to the design. We can discuss the length of content and I can give you a price.

  • I do believe in using newer technologies and designing modern and simpler methods that does not copy others. Should you require back-end work, there are other alternative web services that offer this.

  • Building e-commerce functionality like a shopping cart, would require back-end work and would certainly take more time and incur a higher cost. I do rather make use of 3rd-party form-building and incorporate this into your website design to keep the costs down. Alternatively should you not prefer this, I can recommend an e-commerce website company who specializes in this at very affordable rates. We can finish the static design and they would then build shopping cart functionality into your existing website.

  • I will provide an invoice with a Yoco Payment link via WhatsApp and in email. Bank transfer is also available. As this is a creative work-for-hire, a 50% deposit is required before commencement of any design work.

    If you are concerned that I will take your money and run, it is not in my nature to be dishonest. Secondly, we can commission a law firm to ensure peace of mind but on my part, that would not be necessary. One of my clients is a law firm and can be at your disposable.

  • Usually if we are in the same city, it would be possible. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and travel restrictions, I am currently not in South Africa. Hence, all communications will be done remotely.

  • Depending on the amount of pages and complexity of the project, it can generally be completed within a week, but not longer than 2 weeks. Drafts will be presented to you during the course of designing, and sometimes the back and forth exchanges and our time availability can push the completion date a bit later.

  • Part of the 50% deposit I will use to pay for a domain name and hosting fees. The registration of the domain will be under my account at Digiserv.biz as I have a long-standing account with them. Upon full payment, I will proceed to have all ownership transferred to an account of your own should you choose to do so.

  • I code in HTML, CSS and simple JAVASCRIPT, and do not do the "drag-and-drop" thing in coding software. I write each line of code using a simple text editor; old-school, yes but I like to know what's happening under the hood!
