My special sauce: finding clarity.
Is there anything I need to do before I reach out?
On our first (complimentary) phone call, these are the kind of questions I’m going to ask you:
-Who is your audience?
-What’s your special sauce?
-What are some of your specific goals?
No need to stress. If you’re not entirely sure, let’s talk it through together.
What does the process look like?
It starts with a conversation to see if we’re a good fit. If we are, the next step is a strategy call to talk about more specifics regarding your project. If you’ve seen my packages, you already have an idea of the pricing—but after the strategy call, you will receive a really specific estimate with pricing and timelines.
Each project is slightly different, but after we agree, the creative process looks something like this: 1) research & exploration, 2) sketches, 3) firmer direction, 4) rough design structure, 5) refinement and style, 6) production, 7) delivery & celebration!
I’m sold! What are the next steps?
I can’t wait to talk with you! Fill out my form to schedule a phone call.
How much time will my project take?
Branding normally takes 4-6 weeks while websites take 8-12. Smaller projects can take less time, and larger projects can take more; it really depends on what you need. After we talk, I can give you a more specific time frame.
Should I hire a writer?
Yes. If you are creating a website, I strongly recommend using a professional writer. Writing can influence design, and vice-versa—so having a writer involved from the beginning is ideal. Don’t know a great writer? I can recommend some. I can also include content-creation in your estimate to make things easier.
