My Design Process for Commissions

 
 

What makes my design process special?

Each new project follows my detailed design process that not only makes this an enjoyable experience for you, but also allows me to deliver custom illustrations that impress! 

 
 

Let's Get Aquainted

First, fill out my Quote Request form. Within minutes you will receive a detailed questionnaire that will allow you to tell me all about your goals and vision for this project. You will be able to choose from a variety of design and product print options. All pricing is outlined right in the form!

I do my best to keep my prices simple for personal custom commissions. Clients interested in custom commissions receive flat rate upfront pricing with add-on options.


Your Package

After I receive your questionnaire response, You will receive an invoice for your project. Once payment is received, you will also receive access to your own client portal. Working with me means top notch VIP treatment! All my clients receive access to their own client portal. This is where you will see all of our projects, invoice, forms, and important emails in one place.

In order to secure and guarantee your slot in my production queue, payment for custom commissions is due in full.

Let's Talk about your project!

We will have a virtual meeting where we will discuss your project in detail. We will review a mood board I have created based on the answers to your questionnaire and discuss the art direction for your project.


Review Your Design Sketch

After you approve the design notes from our initial meeting, a detailed design sketch is created and sent for your review.

Digitizing and Delivery!

After design sketch approval, I take great care to digitize your illustration. Your final design is presented to you via online presentation that outlines my design process. All the decisions made are explained to ensure your illustration achieves the goals we discussed in our initial meeting and approved design notes. I also provide a mockup of the final design on your previously selected product options. Once final designs are completed, the illustration is sent to print and delivered directly to you!
