Typically, I get asked a few questions before or during the course of a project. Below are a few that tend to get asked on a regular basis.
FAQs about hiring me
How much do you charge?
The most asked and most important question. Obviously, the pricing varies depending upon the scope and size of a project. I don’t have any problem working on an hourly basis or a lump sum basis. Back to questions
What’s included in your cost?
Most of the cost is my time. Occasionally there could be costs associated with photography, copy writing or other similar items. Upon completion, you will receive full ownership of the artwork. Back to questions
How long will the project take?
Typically, I’d estimate a print project to take about 2 weeks to design and another week to get printed. This depends on the turn around time for the chosen print house. A website, depending upon it’s complexity usually takes much longer, probably months. There can be quite a bit of research, design, and then coding involved with a web design. Note: these are just ideal time frames. Working on a much tighter time frame can be achieved through proper preparation and a good plan. Back to questions
Can you start right away?
Most of the time, yes. On occasion the work load will not allow me to do that. Back to questions
What are my final deliverables?
For a print design you will obviously receive your printed copies. I also will provide the digital artwork whether it’s created in Photoshop, Illustrator or some other program. Upon completion, you will receive full ownership of the artwork. Back to questions
You haven’t done such and such, can you?
Just because you don’t see it in my online portfolio doesn’t mean I haven’t done it. I’m also willing to try any type of project. Often times, the new project types are the most interesting to me and inspire my creativity. Back to questions
