Frequently asked questions

How do I know you are the right designer for me?

If you are looking for an ambitious and creative individual that produces quality work with a personal touch, you have come to the right place!

Pricing

I offer a few different price structures: 

~ An hourly rate, paid weekly or monthly depending on the quantity of work undertaken.

~ A per-job or package quoting system. 

These pricing structures can be tailored to meet your specific needs.

Do you design websites?

No. 

However I can create graphics for your website and point you in the right direction.

What if I need to cancel once we have started?

If there is a change of circumstances or the work I am producing is not for you, you may cancel at anytime as long as you pay for the work I have already done. There is no refund on deposits. You can find more information regarding termination in the Terms and Conditions below.

I think you are too cheap or I think you are too expensive!

Believe me when I say I get both of these responses. Remember that good graphic design is an investment in your business or product. You are making your business look professional and trustworthy, and attracting the right people.

My prices are what I’m comfortable with based on my regular clients and my expenses.

How does your process work?

An outline of my process from the very beginning to the very end is available in the About me section.

I have a tight deadline. Can you help?

Yes. I offer out-of-hours services’ as long as the brief is comprehensive and the lines of communication stay open. Any work requested on a weekend or public holiday will incur a fee.  

I'm not sure what I am after?

No problem. If you are unsure what you are after, I can send you a questionnaire that will help us create a well rounded brief. I will use the brief as a basis to quote and start the design. As the design progresses, the brief can be altered or tweaked to pin point your needs and develop your ideas further. 

What's the best way to contact you?

Via this website or by email is the best and quickest way to contact me. As I am a sole trader, I am normally busy working on a project or in client meetings, which means I am unable to pick up the phone when people call.
