What is it like to work with you?

I have established a standard format for working with clients. We will begin with a consultation (usually an hour) where we get to know each other, discuss your organization, your design needs, aesthetic interests, talk about possible samples and establish deadlines. I will then take that information and create a proposal document that includes project descriptions, deliverables, fee schedule, budget breakdown, project actions list and timeline. After you have had time to review the proposal and agreed to the terms provided, I create a contract that we both sign. After the contract is signed, I begin working on the project.

Once the project is under way there are a few milestones. These include, first drafts, second drafts, the final draft, and the complete product. I typically provide four revisions during the finalization stage of the project.  Once the project is complete, you will receive digital files and close out paperwork.
