The creative process is a collaborative thing.
My goal is to create your project with your likes and sensibilities taken into account coupled with my experience.
Here’s a basic overview of how we can work together:
DISCOVERY & QUOTE
In this first phase I will get an understanding of what your needs are and provide you with an estimate of the time required to complete your project. Quotes are often provided in a range of hours I estimate your project will take to complete.
My standard rate is $55/hour. A discounted rate may be offered to non-profits and on-going clients.
A deposit will be required to begin your project.
Here I create preliminary designs and fine tune the direction we are going with your project.
In this phase the ideas will be presented to you. Here we will fine tune everything including color, photos, fonts etc. Once you sign off on the final comps we move to the “mechanical” or completion phase.
Final printable files are created for your printer or final website files are uploaded to your FTP (if needed). This phase involves giving everything a final check to make sure all the files are in the right format and color space, all alignments are correct, and everything is to spec. etc. This is giving the whole project a basic once over before finishing. For websites this involves testing the site to make sure everything is working properly and backing up the site and database.
*At every stage of the process you are kept up to date on how much time has accrued.
