You know you need a website.
You want to design your own website.
But you don't have the finances to hire a designer and you don't know where to start?
I totally get you, I have been there many years ago and now it is my job to design websites for other entrepreneurs!
I have also found the perfect platform to build my websites on and it’s called Squarespace.
Squarespace is an easy to use, all-in-one platform to build a beautiful website or blog. And once you have understood the basics, the learning curve is quite steep.
What previous attendees say:
“I started a trial and bought a plan with Squarespace about a year ago but I quickly realized that it was more complex than I thought and I quickly gave up. When I saw that Emilia would do a workshop in Dubai about Squarespace I signed up immediately. It was a great morning and I got far with the website in those four hours. I actually finished designing my website all by myself and am very proud that I finally have my own website with my portfolio up and running.
I can only recommend this workshop to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by the thought of doing it alone.”
- Jenny from Eve Photography - www.eve-photography.net
“I have been following Emilia for a while on Instagram and I have used a lot of her free material for branding and website design from her website. When she announced her next workshop date to learn about website design I signed up without hesitation. Although I had not started business yet, I wanted to join and learn about website design and what Squarespace can do for me. I enjoyed the workshop very much and learned a lot. I can highly recommend this workshop for anyone who is in need of a website, wants to re-design their website or even like me someone who just wants to learn more about the platform Squarespace and website design in general.”

What my clients say about me....
It was so overwhelming having to deal with marketing tools when I started my business. I needed someone to understand my needs and suit my taste to take over marketing from logo design to website set-up. MNFL design provided me with exactly that. Emilia was always a step ahead of me making me feel that she knew what I needed for my business better than I did. She listened to me carefully and gave me design options that matched my vision. She was always there to assist me with Facebook ads and brochure design and she was fast and effective. That's a hard thing to find. I know that my collaboration with Emilia will be a long lasting and happy one. I can't recommend her enough! Thank you. You are a big part of my success!

We needed a brand and website that would reflect the core purpose of our business. Emilia came highly recommended as a professional brand and website designer that was supportive, straight forward and who delivered on time. Once I met her, I knew that she was the right fit for my business. She is creative yet always focused on what our clients would be looking for. The result is a new brand and website that has had phenomenal response and feedback. We look forward to growing our market share in the Middle East and Europe with her designs that perfectly reflects our business purpose. Thank you Emilia
Linda from www.flow2thrive.com
Before I hired MNFL Design, I was lost in a myriad of website hosting options and I was scared that I wasn't able to build my own website that would reflect my photography and how I wanted my business to look. Essentially, I was worried to take the first big step towards launching my business. I was also concerned about the costs of hiring a designer, but hiring Emilia was the best decision I ever made and I feel it’s worth every penny.
A friend recommended MNFL Design so there was an immediate level of trust. When I met Emilia, I liked her instantly and I felt that we connected. Designing a website is a very important process that demands as much of the business owner as the designer and I felt that we worked very well together in this respect. She understood what I wanted, she listened, shared her ideas and advice and developed a beautiful website for me.
My new website has received a huge number of compliments and people love it as much as I do. I LOVE the branding and am so happy with how it reflects my business and my photography.
Having Emilia design my branding and website was a pleasurable, easy partnership, so inspirational and rewarding.
