Consultation. I'll send you my pricing and services sheet and you'll decide when you are ready. We will meet to further discuss your design vision and needs, review samples of paper and prints types, and most likely have a drink. We can meet at my studio in San Diego or via phone or Skype.
I will create a proposal for you regarding everything that we covered during our consult. Upon approval I will draft your contract and send you your first invoice, in which a 50% retainer is due prior to the beginning of making art happen.
Time to get you set up in our Project Management software. My project manager will set you up with an account in our TeamWork software. You'll be invited to create an account where you will have access to our design timeline, files, links, messages, and all the tasks we'll be completing to create your work.
Inspiration + Mood Board. I'll use the inspiration you provide me to create a branding board, so that we are on the same page. I'll sketch out ideas to share with you for direction. Then I'll have you fill out our online questionnaire the provide us with as much information as possible in regard to your event.
Design and fun stuff. I will begin turning those sketches and ideas into a digital presentation, in the form of a PDF. Once you have approved a design, I'll get it set up for proof printing. Now is the time to take a breather and get ready for pure art.
No job goes to full press until you see a proof of the paper and printed artwork. Once approved we'll order all supplies and send off final artwork to print, to our friends at printer family (literally like family as I have worked with them for 9 years).
Assemble and deliver. We'll get your pieces fully assembled and ship them directly to you or mail them out on your behalf. Time to open a bottle of champagne and celebrate! You'll be blushing from all the rave reviews!
We'll regroup and begin talking about additional stationery and design needs. Don't forget, we offer backdrop design and installation, laser cut goods and signage, and a plethora of fun and well designed items.
