Service Description

Please note that if you want fast and cheap, I am not the contractor for you. All of my work is high quality, agency-caliber design, and I charge accordingly. Generally, my minimum fixed price rate is $250.

If you have already worked with another contractor, are not happy with the product, and want me to "just finish it up for you" at a reduced rate to keep the project on budget... I am not the contractor for you. I find that projects like this usually require a complete redesign from scratch, and clients balk at paying again, for what they thought they were going to receive initially.

That being said, I am "old school" when it comes to client service. In fact, one of the many hats I wore in my agency days was that of an account executive. I understand that my job is to collaborate with the client and offer a solution that achieves the client's goal, with the voice and design the client requires. I work well in a creative team environment, or I am equally capable of taking an assignment and delivering the product complete from concept to production. I believe I work with, not for, my clients; and have found that the creative process can be a very powerful catalyst toward success.

Please consider me as a resource for you on your project; I...
