Questions about Design?
My design rates are $50.00 an hour for freelance work. Logos are usually negotiated after consultation to determine how much detail and time will be needed in the project.
Paper,pencil, computer. We usually have a consultation via the phone or in person meeting depending on schedules. From there I can determine what is going to go into the project on my end. I can also assess your needs as a client. If we can come to an agreement it will move into the design phase. I usually send some sketches, and once I get an idea from that I proceed to digitally starting your project. In the case of logos, they typically come black and white with color proofs to follow. You have 3 major changes included in your package. If we need to go back to square one, then additional fees may incur. Once final approval is made, payment arrangements can be set up to get your final designs.
Your logo will come in vector format. This is standard and what every logo will be delivered in. This will be good for screen printing (Pending gradients), decals, posters or whatever you need to send it off for. Embroidery however is a different format, and you will need to speak to the shop you send it to about that.
The quick answer is no. If you have a business card, email signature or social media post done by me, you are paying for the final product. If you want the layered file to change or add members of your business then it is going to cost a lot more. Reason being is that this is how I make money. Plain and simple.
Once I get written approval via e-mail for your project payment needs to be set up. After that reaches me, and clears, you can expect your artwork in 1-2 business days.
If it is a banner, business card, email signature, social media post, you are going to get a JPG, or PNG file. If you need it for a large format print shop I can speak with them and tailor it to their needs.
If you are getting a logo done you will get the following:
- vector file in PDF format
- EPS file
- 4 web file sizes of your choosing in JPG or PNG format
YES! Of course you can, that is ultimately part of the process of designing your logo. If I have the font it will be no extra charge. If it is something extra that I have to get an additional charge may incur.
Things can understandably happen. Budgets and finances are a tough thing in life. If you want to shelf the design we can certainly do that, or it can be finished, but not delivered until final payment is made with a set date. If however you don't feel the project is going in the direction that you wanted we can simply stop all together. At that point you would not owe a final balance and any deposit will be considered payment in full for the job.
I accept paypal, money order or cold hard cash. However; I no longer accept Itchy and Scratchy Dollars, or exposure on your social media. Once I have received final payment, and it has cleared you can expect your artwork in 1-2 business days.
