Introducing
Creativity Cubed.

Good things come in threes.

Say goodbye to time-consuming, stressful and expensive freelancer-juggling. Say hello to Hen³.

I create flawless websites, designs, stories, mockups & animations, using world-class programmes and robust, elegant code. I agonise over the details so that you don't have to, offering consulting services during the design phase and beyond. In short, I do my best to paint with code.

Process

🗻
Systematic,
Tailored Workflow.

Phase I

The Project Request

The first step of a Hen³ collaboration is the project request. The information that you provide really helps me to understand whether I am the right person for your creative vision. If I believe that my skillset is certain to do the project justice, I will arrange a video call to meet you (and/or your team). I strive to get back to every project request within 48 hours.

📝

Phase II

The Preliminary Meeting

The main aim of this initial video call is to establish trust and understanding on both sides. We will discuss precise goals, timeframes & requirements, clarify any questions and plot out a clear and actionable plan going forwards. My favourite part of these calls is meeting people passionate about their project, with grand ideas for manifesting it online!

🤝

Phase III

The Proposal³

Once I have a clear and comprehensive overview of your project, I will create an individual proposal for you. I charge for my work on a per project basis, rather than by the hour. This keeps everything super transparent, as you have a full overview of the costs.

🔖

Phase IV

The Construction Cycle

If both parties are content with the proposal, I start my Lofi playlist and get to work! I usually begin with some rough sketches (sometimes nothing beats pencil + paper), number-crunching, code-testing & style mockups. I like to line up my ducks, so to speak. Then, I get to work building - with regular updates and options for you to pick from. Clear, responsive communication is at the heart of everything I do.

🛠️

Phase V

The Final Handover

Before launching a client project, I like to demonstrate its quality and potency by putting it through its paces. For a website, this might involve proving effective load-speeds on different devices. For a graphic design, this might involve proving crisp quality even at 200% zoom. I only send finished projects via channels which either do not compress at all, or utilise lossless compression (eg: WeTransfer), ensuring the quality always remains perfect.

FAQ

🔮
Frequently
Asked Questions.

What specific services do you offer?

I specialise in the development of premium websites using custom code integrations to add interactivity for the user. I also offer design mockup, branding kit, 3D-model animation & copywriting services (these may be within website builds themselves, or as independent projects). Specialist creative consulting is included in every project, however big or small.

How much does a project cost?

Naturally, project costs vary depending on size, timescale & complexity. My current minimum engagement fee for a full-site build is £3000, with the majority of projects ranging between £4500-£8000. For other independent creative services, I charge £250/£450 per half/full day.

What toolstack do you use?

I primarily use Webflow for all Web Dev projects, given its industry-leading strengths in code customisation, SEO, hosting, security & design autonomy. Many projects also benefit from the Adobe Suite, as well as Blender and Cinema 4D. Ultimately, nothing beats pencil and paper at the start of the design phase!

Do you work internationally?

Yes! I'm a British-German-Italian born in London, who is about to spend a few months in Toronto, Canada. I have clients from all over and am very flexible with time zone communications.

How long does a project take?

Projects, understandably, vary in length - but the majority of my past work has taken between 2 weeks and 2 months.

How does the payment work?

I follow the industry standard of 50% upfront and 50% after a successful handover and launch. For international payments, I recommend using Wise, but I am broadly flexible.

What's your favourite part?

I most enjoy telling exciting stories about brands, people & ideas, through a combination of engaging copy and thoughtful design. I also get to work with some really cool people and help them beep boop their passions onto the internet.
