ARE WE A GOOD FIT?
Productive, friendly, attentive. If you’re seeking an efficient designer with unique perspective to move your project forward, look no further! My experience includes logos, branding, brochures, posters, and more.
My goal with every client is to build quality, lasting relationship and deliver my best possible work. To achieve this goal I have developed a creative workflow that prepares each project to be all that it can be. At the end of each project I provide a thorough project file pack — including source files! — and the transfer of exclusive copyright for project materials. See the steps outlined below to get a sense for my workflow.
MY Creative WORKFLOW
STEP 1: DISCOVER
The most effective way to achieve a great final product for you is to become familiar with your company, its mission, and other key components of who you are and how you do business. Think of this introspective interview like a friendly, deep conversation about your business.
The Discover step seeks to understand and define your business in order to most efficiently create a high quality final product.
STEP 2: EXPLORE
After the Discover step, I will have a solid handle on you, your business, and the mission for this project together and the Explore step can launch! Here is where the creative gears begin turning.
I launch into a thorough brainstorm for your project, followed by a few roughed out concepts. Project concepts are sent to you for review and feedback. I take the concepts and feedback and distill a First Draft.
STEP 3: ESTABLISH
Finally we find ourselves moving forward in Step Three: Establish! Here your feedback is taken into consideration, and the design continues to evolve toward its final form. After up to three rounds of feedback and revision between client and designer, your Final product is born!
Drafts, feedback, and final file packs include a variety of file types and color modes for various applications such as print, web, and more.
