Step 1. Gathering Information

 

To create a practical plan, I start by learning about the goals, requirements and thoughts you have about the project.

 

a. Project Questionnaire – Start by filling out my project questionnaire.

The questions give me a basic understanding of your project.


b. Follow-up Questions – I’ll email over follow up questions based on the information you provide in the project questionnaire.


c. Art Direction – When I send over the follow up questions, I’ll ask if you have art direction for the project. This can include a presentation, a moodboard or reference images, and thoughts on what will make the project successful.


d. Meeting – Although this is not necessary for all projects, a real-life meeting provides helpful insights that email doesn’t.


e. Project Proposal – I’ll send over a project proposal that includes a summarization of the project, pricing and a breakdown of the design process and objectives.

 

Step 1. FAQs


– To eliminate surprises and encourage efficiency, I use Flat-Rate pricing.

– If the price I quoted isn’t affordable, let me know. In certain situations, I can redefine the process to adjust the price.


Step 2. Getting Started

 

I require all Clients to sign a project agreement and pay a retainer fee.

 

a. Project Agreement – You’ll receive a signature request for the Project Agreement via email. The agreement includes a summarization of the project(s), price(s) and terms.
 

b. Retainer Payment – Once the agreement has been signed, I send a PayPal invoice for 50% of the total project cost. Both electronic payment and check are acceptable.

 

*If you’re paying by check, it’s appreciated if you provide a send confirmation from your bank. If you can’t, simply letting me you know you’ve mailed the check works great too.

 

 

Step 2. FAQs


– As a precaution, I set an hourly time-cap for each project. If exceeded, it gives me the ability to charge more. I have never exceeded the hourly time-cap for a project.

 

 

Step 3. My Design Process

 

 

Presenting Work – An average project consists of three presentations; rough concepts, revised concepts and a final design. Sometimes it’s necessary to repeat a step more than once.

 

 

Step 3. FAQs


– By thoroughly and clearly explaining my design process, clients are able to understand how I solve problems and arrive at certain solutions. This makes it easy for Clients to provide targeted feedback and ensures a successful end result.

 

 

Step 4. Final Files & Payment

 

 

The final payment must be made before I will finish the work.

 

 

a. Payment – The final invoice is sent immediately after you’ve approved the final design.


b. Project Delivery – After receiving the final payment, your project will be live and you will get access to all files and sources you need.
