Timeframe


Since I work with one client at a time, I adhere to a rigorous timeline project schedule. This schedule is crafted to optimize opportunities for you to provide feedback and avoids projects being dragged on for weeks or even months. Within six weeks, you will have a beautifully crafted brand that best reflects your values and personality and is optimized for your business to grow long-term.


Process


Inquiry

Have a project you think would be a great fit? Complete the inquiry form below, including scope, timeline, and budget, and any questions you may have, and we can get the conversation started. Once I receive the completed form, I will send you the Brand Questionnaire. The Brand Questionnaire provides me with insight and details about your project in order to ensure it is a good fit for my services. Once that questionnaire is completed, I will let you know my availabilities for scheduling a meeting. Completion of the form doesn’t guarantee a meeting. I use these forms to determine if your brand is a good fit for my services.

Discuss

During our initial meeting, we will review the project parameters and goals. I will clarify my expectations from you as a client. Based off of this meeting, I will send a project contract and invoice for a deposit. I require a 25% deposit to save your spot. Another 25% is due at the first day of the project. A signed contract and 50% deposit are required to secure your project start date.

Research + Content Strategy

After you sign the project contract, we begin the research and content strategy phase. During this time, you will be working on completing the homework needed before the design begins. We will be finalizing components of your brand identity – niche, audience, and purpose. I will also conduct a comprehensive website audit. Any areas of conflict will be addressed at this time, and we will tackle the improvements together.

Brand Identity

The remaining 25% of the project fee is due at this ‘official start’. All of the homework requirements (finalize text and images) is also submitted. For the brand identity, I create the logo concepts and moodboards for the project. This phase also includes building out branding assets (business cards, blog post templates, and launch graphics).

Blog Design + Development

Once you have finalized a visual direction, I’ll begin designing the website, which includes a wireframe mockup of page templates. Together we’ll maintain an open dialogue to pinpoint what works best and fine-tune the design details through revisions. This process takes two weeks.

Installation

Once a final design has been approved, I will package and compile the project components for your use. Depending on the project, I often include guidelines for how to effectively use your new materials to make your brand stand out. The remainder of the project fee is due before installation.
