We believe that a major hurdle for artists in getting their work is the technology. We’re happy to show you how WordPress and Flatfile can work to create a Web site that will last you for years. We have two ways of offering help:
Depending on your location, timing of your request and specific needs, you’ll be set up with someone on the support team. 1-on-1 sessions will be held at The Design Office in Providence or at a location of your agreement outside of Rhode Island.
Get up to speed on everything you’ll need to know to add, edit and manage your website in this two-hour in-person session. The demo allows time to look at your content and get advice from a trained designer on imaging and organizational issues.
You’ll have workday phone and email access to a support team member for a weekly fee of $400. Ideal for crunch deadlines and for those in above their heads. Note, this is not production help, but access to someone who can log in to your site, figure out why you’re stuck and advise you how to improve your workflow. This fee carries a maximum of 10 hours.
