My Client Design Process

 
 

What makes my 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 designs that impress! 

 
 

Let's Get Aquainted

First, fill out my Quote Request form. Once received, I will send you an email within 24-48 business hours asking a few more questions about what you are looking for and your overall project goals. Once I have a clear idea of what you are looking for, I will create a simple proposal of my pricing for your project. You should receive this within 24 - 48 business hours. The best part? Your quote is FREE!


Review your package

Once we come to an agreement and you approve your proposal, you will receive a formal design contract with project scheduling outlined. Once I have your stamp of approval, a deposit on the project is made, and we can get started.

In order to secure and guarantee your slot in my production queue, a non-refundable deposit on your project is due in full.

Let's get coffee

We will have an in-person, phone, or virtual meeting where we will discuss your project in detail. This of course will depend on your project. During this meeting we will outline project goals, review paper samples if need be, discuss scheduling, review a mood board I have created based on our previous conversation, discuss art direction, and more!


Review Your Design Sketches

After you approve the design notes from our initial meeting, design sketches are created and sent for your review. You will have the opportunity to review these proofs and provide feedback for revisions. Each project is unique and granted a set number of concepts and revisions outlined in the proposal.
