Contact Me

Tell me a little bit about what you have in mind, and let me know how I can reach you.

Contact Me



I will follow up with you and discuss the best solutions for your creative needs. I will ask you a few questions to better understand what you are hoping to achieve, get a feel for your project, your parameters, goals, objectives and limitations. I will give you an estimate after the consultation.


Design Brief

If you decide to move forward and hire me for your project, I will send you a customized design brief for fill out and send back to me.


Project Proposal

I will draw up a project proposal outlining everything we discussed in our consultation and your design brief, along with a timeframe and pricing tailored to your specific project.

Please note: If you decide to make adjustments to your initial inquiry after receiving the proposal, the revised proposal might have a different timeframe and pricing than the original.


Sign On

Upon your approval of the proposal, a 50% deposit and your billing information is required to get started 1. Once your deposit is received, your project will get started immediately.



It usually takes 2-3 rounds of design-feedback-revise to get the wow factor that your project deserves - some projects may require a few extra rounds 2. Unless discussed otherwise, the first round of design is usually made up of a few ideas, sketches or concepts developed through studying your design brief and project requirements, doing research and brainstorm ideas, and basically spending a considerable amount of time obsessing over your project. We collaborate and work together through the next rounds as I refine and revise those initial designs based on your feedback, and move the project towards the desired outcome.


Final Proof

I’ll put together the final set of proofs for you to carefully review before preparing the final outcome and wrapping up the project.



Once I receive your final approval, I will create the required deliverables. Your final invoice will be sent and your payment is required within 10 days. Once your payment is received, I will send you the deliverables 3.

Follow Up & Support

When you receive the deliverables and your project is finished, I will continue to be a resource to you and your business. If you need support or have any questions regarding your project, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I strive for the very best in customer service and achieving all the goals of my clients.
