How it works

A quick overview of my process

1 Intro and booking.png

1. Intro + BOOKING

First, get in touch with a project inquiry. I'll set up a 20-minute consult so I can learn more about your project and we can get to know each other. I want to hear about your business and goals, and we'll get on the same page about deliverables, timeline, and pricing. Once we've agreed to work together, the is contract signed, and a 50% deposit is made - your project is booked! 

 

2. PLANNING HOMEWORK

If you have a content-heavy project (like an infographic, ebook, or presentation) I'll send you a Planning Guide. This is to collect any text, data, or graphic materials you'd like included so it's ready to design around on your project start date. When you have your reference content ready, the guide should only take about 30 minutes to fill out. Easy!

 

3. CONCEPT SKETCHES

On your project start date, I'll get started by sketching out a few design options for you to consider. These are rough concepts to explore ideas, see if I'm on the right page, and check that I'm sharing your message accurately. I'll send over 3 sketches for you to review, and you can let me know which you like best by email or a quick call - your choice. Once you approve direction, I'll start work on the final design.

 

4. Design 

This is my favorite part! Now that we have a direction, I'll turn the approved concept sketches into the final design. About halfway through, I'll check in to make sure you're happy with the graphics, content, and layout so far! When I think I'm finished with the design, I'll schedule a time to chat with you to make sure you're happy with the result.

 

 

5. REVIEW + CONSULT

We'll meet for 30 minutes to go over your design together and see if there's any minor revisions needed. I'll also give you some content marketing recommendations about ways to use your new design project to meet your business goals. 

 

6. THE GOODS

Once the final payment is received, I'll send you a Dropbox link with all the final files for you to download and use without restriction. 

Files will include original design files (Photoshop, Illustrator, etc). as well as graphic files for both print and web. The specific format will depend on the project you've chosen, but usually .PNG/.JPG. for images or .PDF for printable documents.

 

 

7. Share and celebrate!

Yasss! Your design project is finished and ready to be published and introduced to the world. With your new visuals, your business and your message are easier to share, more likely to be seen, and are much more memorable to your audience. Communicate your story with your new materials. I'll help by sharing your project on my blog and social media profiles (with your permission), too.
