FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Over the years, I've gathered that most of my clients have never worked with a graphic designer or web designer, so I've created this section to provide an overview of the process and what to expect.
how do you approach a new project?
I’ll start by gathering initial information about your desires for your design and will ask the occasional question along the way while I’m creating it. The more I learn from you on what you want, the better your design will turn out. In turn, I encourage clients to ask me anything they aren’t sure about. For most clients, working with a designer is a brand new process. I understand this and enjoy helping all of my clients navigate the process.
wHAT IS YOUR
It all begins with researching a clients current website/social media and anything else I can find to look for applicable information. Then I’ll surf the web for a bit to draw some inspiration before initiating the design phase.
dO YOU WELCOME
Absolutely! This is your project. I want it to capture YOUR personality. Input is highly encouraged. If there are pictures, concepts, colors, or websites you’ve seen that you really like, send them over so I can incorporate elements from them into your design.
WHAT QUALITIES DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A CLIENT?
Prompt responses and payments make a good client. Referring friends and family make a GREAT client. Word-of-mouth referrals is the #1 way I get new clients, so if you are satisfied with the service I provide, tell a friend or invite them to like my Facebook page.
after the project is complete, are you willing to share the source files?
For those who do not know what a source file is, it is a file that you can send to someone making merchandise like a banner, shirt, billboard, etc. I include the source file when sharing the final design along with a few other file types.
wHAT DESIGN PROGRAMS DO YOU USE?
When designing logos, print products, and video, I work almost exclusively with Adobe products, but am always open to exploring programs that can improve the services I provide. As for web design, I have my favorite programs, but will use whatever platform the client desires to produce the best results.
CAN YOU WORK
WITHIN A BUDGET?
I am a small business owner just like you, so I get it. This is why my services are budget-friendly. I do, however, reserve the right to ask for additional funds from clients if the job scope expands past the original agreement.
hOW DO YOU stay current IN THE FIELD OF DESIGN?
I continually explore new ways to use the tools within Adobe programs and make it a point to learn best practices for UX (user-experience) and UI (user-interface) web design.
