Frequently Asked Questions


How will we work together... it all starts with a conversation!

Following this initial contact the design process typically flows as follows: 

DISCOVER - from a client meeting we will establish the direction and vision for your project. Once we’ve agreed to work together, details are finalized, a letter of agreement is signed and a deposit is made, your project will begin.

CREATE - I’ll create designs for you to review and we'll finalize the next stage.

REVEAL - Once we’ve completed revisions, the project is prepared for you to unveil to your audience. 

What kind of work do you do?

• Logo and brand development, rebranding

• Stationery - business cards, letterheads, envelopes, notepads, etc.

• Postcards, rack cards, tri-fold brochures, brochures, posters

• Annual reports 

• Marketing and sales advertisements

• Social media graphics

• Packaging

• Banners, billboards

• Vehicle decals

There are many applications for the creative process and they are not limited to this list. Please contact me to discuss your project requirements.

How much does it cost to work with you?

Each project is unique, so I am happy to send an estimate once you provide a few details. I work efficiently to meet deadlines and keep to budget. I'm competitively priced within the market. 

Do I have to pay a deposit and sign a letter of agreement?

Yes, a 40% down payment and signed letter of agreement is required prior to the project commencement. You will be invoiced for your remaining balance upon project completion.

I'm not based in the Comox Valley, can we still work together?

Absolutely! I've successfully worked remotely with many clients. Briefing a project can easily be arranged through a phone call, email or Skype meeting. Once work begins, PDF proofing is a quick and efficient way to deliver designs for review and discussions.

If you have a specific question, please email me.
