A quick breakdown of the design process. From logo design to web design I make it as simple and painless as possible for you.
Whether over the phone or face to face, the first consultation is where we get to know each other. For me, it’s an opportunity to learn about you, your company, your customers and your budget. For you, it’s a chance to get to ask me questions about the design process. During this conversation we determine your expectations in terms of design, style, preferred colors, layout, functionality and timeline. We’ll discuss and review your current logo, website or advertising material, whatever the case may be. Once we decide we are a good fit, I will start creating a proposal for your project.
After we meet, I will email you a proposal with the cost for the project. If you approve, a 50% deposit is required before any work is scheduled to start. Once I receive the deposit I’ll add you to my schedule and ask that you start emailing me the content (pictures and verbiage) for your project. I also request that you send me examples of work you like (from my portfolio or from online) so that I get a better visual understanding of the style you have in mind.
I will provide three design options with different styles, colors and fonts. You might like one as is or request changes to your favorite. You can also request to mix and match elements from all three. I will make a reasonable amount of revisions on the design until we get to one that you like.
When designing items such as business cards, flyers, ads, postcards, posters, etc. I will do one design option. You might like it as is or request a reasonable amount of revisions until we get to a design you like.
I will use your logo and brand colors to customize a Squarespace site. Yes, I do start with a template, but by the time I finish designing it, it will be 100% unique and branded to your business. This will end up saving you money, because I don't build websites form the ground up. After the design is complete you will be given ownership of the site.
