Thank you so much for your interest in my design services. I’m thrilled about the potential to work with you for your graphic design needs! Before proceeding, please read over the following process + policies to better understand how this works. I also always recommend potential clients view my portfolio before proceeding, to make sure we’re a good fit. I want to make sure we’re fully on the same page moving forward. And as always, feel free to contact me with any questions.
Design Process for Branding Packages
1 | Inspiration Board
After you book, we’ll begin with some branding questionnaires to help us define the heart behind your brand. You’ll also be guided into creating a visual board of photos you find inspiring for your brand’s visual identity. I’ll take these pieces to create your brand’s inspiration board (photos, colors, patterns) to inspire the creation of your logo.
2 | Logo Development
Drawing from your client homework and the inspiration board, I will design 3 different logo concepts. You may then choose 1 of the concepts for us to revise. // 2 revisions of chosen logo
3 | Marketing Material Design
Once we finalize your logo, we’ll begin work on your collateral marketing design(s), based upon the package you chose. Examples include business cards, thank you stationary, etc. // 1 revision
4 | Website
If you’ve purchased the full branding and web package, after the full logo process is complete, we’ll begin installing and designing your website. You will need to purchase your domain name and hosting services first, and I can walk you through this, as well.
My goal is for us to have an open, collaborative relationship as we work through the design process so that in the end, you feel great about your brand!
You have a story to tell. Let’s tell it well!
Ready to get started?
- The first step in proceeding is making sure you read over the above process + the policies below.
- Please view my portfolio to see the kind of projects I’ve worked on in the past.
- If you’re feeling great about those, head to the design page now + submit an inquiry, along with any questions you have. I’ll get back to you very soon!
- To reserve your spot once we’ve decided to work together, I’ll send you a contract + an invoice for 50% deposit
- We’ll set a project start date and the real fun begins!
Purchase of domain name + hosting is the responsibility of the client and never included in the package. I am always happy to guide you towards where to purchase if you’d like suggestions.
I do not offer any content management services at this time. Your design includes all the items listed in your design proposal, but will not involve updating, editing, or changing site content after the final project is published and handed off to the client. I will walk you through wordpress features, including how to update and change your page text/details, as part of the full web design or wordpress packages. You’ll receive the walk through either via email or phone call (30 minutes included). After the hand off, it is the client’s responsibility to update and edit their pages and content.
A 50% project deposit is required to reserve your space for any design project. 25% of the deposit is non-refundable, should you choose to cancel before project start date. 25% of the paid deposit may be refunded if you cancel before the day 1 of project start. Anytime after day 1, fees are non-refundable, and the full project cost is still due. Remaining 50% will be due at the start date of the project. No files will be released or final design published until final payment received.
Billing is completed through Square or Paypal.
Head to the design page for more information on packages or to submit an initial interest inquiry.
