Depending on the nature of your project, the process will entail some or all of the following steps. Some of the steps require your input; your timely responses will help ensure that we meet our agreed deadline.

I charge per project, not per hour; in other words, I never run over budget. If your needs change mid-project, we can discuss revising our cost and time estimates accordingly.

1. Bid
After we have an initial detailed conversation about your project, I assess your goals and needs. Then I will send a bid and proposal for us to use as a guideline for the project. If the proposal is agreed upon, a completion date is set and I accept 1/2 the total fee as a deposit.

2. Conception
Once I have received all of the source material for the design I will create and send 1 to 3 conceptual designs for your perusal. These are sketches to be built upon and revised, not the final product.

3. Revision
After a direction is agreed upon, I will do up to 3 revisions of the design, based on your feedback. Then I will send a final version for your approval.

4. Building
After approval I finish the graphic art, or for websites I begin to build the actual site. Usually while I am doing this, you can gather your final content if needed. The site content gets laid in after the appearance is finished and then the details are filled in.

5. Testing
When the graphic, print material, or website is complete we will both look over it very carefully. Websites will also be browser tested.

6. Completion
When printed materials have been thoroughly checked, I will send them to the printer or load them to my FTP for download. Websites will be launched, and you will receive a tutorial on basic admin tasks. I will send you notes for maintenance and give suggestions for next steps.

These steps will help ensure that I have what I need to complete your project. If any of these steps are overwhelming or confusing, (you wouldn't be alone :) feel free to ask for my advice. Utilize my extensive years of experience. I'm here to help you.

Graphic and Print:

1. Clarify your vision and goals. Write a concise description of the project. Color preferences, style, the mood you want conveyed, other designs you like, or even favorite artists, will all help.

2. Gather all source materials. Images must be print resolution (300dpi). Stock photography websites are good places to get images or even design ideas. All images used must be copyright free, or used with permission, but I can use any image as design inspiration. I can provide source material or search for images if needed.

3. Deliver correct and organized content to me.

4. Choose printer if needed. There are many online sources. I also have a printer in Portland that I work with: Negative Perfection.

Website:

1. Clarify your vision and goals. Write a concise description of the project. Color preferences, style, the mood you want conveyed, other designs you like, or even favorite artists will all help. Gather URLs of websites you like or hate and detail your reasons.

2. Create an outline of the pages and content you want.
For example:

  1. Home page
    • Rotating images
    • Blog posts
  2. About
    • Image and bio
  3. Contact page
    • contact form

It's OK if you don't know exactly what you want, but fill in as much as you can. Look around at other websites to get ideas.

3. List the three most important things you'd like visitors to do at your site.

4. Gather all source materials and content. If you need images, stock photography websites are good places to look. All images used must be copyright free, or used with permission. I can search for images if needed. To enable better Search Engine Optimization use this guide to gather keywords and phrases for your site.

5. Deliver correct and organized content to me. Gathering it into a single zipped package helps.
