The first step is easy; you just contact me. If you know what you want, we will talk about your project; if you’re unsure, we will talk about options. In either case we will define the project specifications and cost. I try to keep my prices reasonable and my design outstanding. My ultimate goal is to create such a great product and experience that three things happen: you’re happy you called, you refer me to others, and you come back for any future design needs.
Good graphic design is just a visual solution to a client’s problem. That’s not all there is to good graphic design; there’s actually a lot more. That said, the second step in the process is pretty fun; we talk about elements that need to be included in the final outcome (e.g. “I want a retro look”). I encourage you to find inspirational examples of the elements you like and want. We are not going to copy anything; however, understanding your vision will help me execute that vision. If you don’t have a vision, don’t worry. I have enough creativity for the both of us; you’re in good hands so just turn me loose.
The third step is my creative process, the end of which presents to you some graphic solutions. Like a team, you and I each make changes to one or two favorite designs until we achieve the perfect look. My favorite part of design is the successful outcome of this collaborative process. In the end, we’re both happy and proud of our work. If I’m giving you a digital file to be produced by a vendor of your choice, then we move to the last step in the process. If you’d like me to produce the project also, I’d be happy to handle that for you.
Now the project is complete, I will send you a PayPal invoice. You don’t need a PayPal account in order to pay; it works just like the credit/debit card machine at the grocery store. Once you pay, I will either send you digital files or the end product.
