Design Process

Client consultation and creative brief and client agreement presented (1 week) FREE

You’re interested in working with me. That’s great! I’ll ask you to provide some basic details about who you are, what your business is and what exactly you are looking for. I’ll prepare and present you with a client agreement. Once you review and sign the agreement, we can get to work.

Client questionnaire and creative brief (1 week)

Once the client agreement is signed, you’ll receive a questionnaire which will help guide me in designing an identity that captures the essence of your brand and meets your objectives.

Research, conceptualization, and sketching (1 week)

Using the questionnaire and any other input you provide, I will spend time researching things such as your industry, target audience, competition, etc. This is an important step. I will create and share with you what I call a “mood board”. I’ll ask for your thoughts and gut reactions to the board, which will also help guide us closer to your brand identity.

First Draft Stage (2 weeks)

After the research and mood board stage, I move on to sketching and drafting. I will create 3-4 rough draft options to show you and get your feedback. This will take me about 2 weeks.

First Proof Stage (2 weeks)

Once I’ve presented my sketches, we’ll determine the direction of the final logo.

Final Proof Stage (1 weeks)

Once we’ve narrowed down the direction, I will tweak and refine and present to you a second proof of one or two final images.*

Final products delivered (1 week)

Once you’ve selected and given your approval of the final image, I will prepare the final files to package and send to you.

*Additional proofs or draft requests or change requests during or after the final proof stage will require additional fees to be added to the client agreement.

Website Consultation & Design

There are lots of easy and inexpensive tools available for small businesses to create and maintain a website these days. But there’s a lot more to building a professional-looking, user-friendly website that is distinct to your brand than dragging and dropping. Your website will be one of, if not the biggest, source of information for your prospective customers to drive leads for your business. Why not invest a little more to ensure that you’re putting your best foot forward in the digital space in an affordable way?

As both an experienced web writer, editor and designer, I can help you:

  • Select a platform that works best for your business objectives
  • Choose an available template and customize it to reflect your brand identity and goals
  • Write effective, web-ready, SEO-driven content
  •  Find and secure low-cost stock photography or other graphics for your site
  •  Ensure your website is accessible to all users and compliant with ADA guidelines
  •   Determine and define best practices for managing and updating your website content as needed

Website Review

Do you wish your business’ website or personal blog looked like more professional ones you’ve seen? Have you been pulling your hair out trying to customize a template with no success? Is your site a mess when viewed on a smart phone? Is your site not generating enough leads or getting any clicks?

I’m both an experienced web writer and designer who’s trying to start my own business, too. I know hiring a full-service marketing firm is just not an option for many small business startups. Free or inexpensive online website builders are great alternatives, but like the old adage goes, “you get what you pay for.”

With one eye for content and the other for design, I will review your existing web properties and give you immediate feedback and solutions you can implement using the tools you’ve already invested in.

Includes
  •  Client questionnaire followed by 30-minute consultation to learn more about your business and objectives
  •         Comprehensive review of your website’s visual design and information architecture (the way pages are organized)
  •         Review of written content for grammatical and spelling errors
  •         Review of your site’s Google analytics performance
  •         Detailed suggestions for enhancing or revising your website’s content and design in order to enhance performance, accessibility, mobile friendly design, and SEO
  •         30-minute follow up call
