You get what you pay for usually in life….professional design may come from a design firm or a freelancer. Talent, experience, professionalism, and a knowledge of the audience of a client is paramount.

THE PROCESS

EASY AS 1-2-3! Clients are guided thru each project so don’t worry! Step one is requesting a quote and getting the conversation started.

The PROCESS is simple…..We talk it over first…then a sample design is sent via email…..from there we see where we are at…each step is approved before going to the next level.

It depends on the schedule, jobs however can be moved up to accommodate a clients need for a RUSH job.

We talk logo projects out first… so hopefully the logo sample you receive will be what you wanted first shot out of the box…but obviously this is not always the case. If you do like the logo and want to move forward with changes then we continue until it’s polished (within reason of course). If you DO NOT like the first draft then we talk again and try to fine tune the idea. We can repeat this process a few times.. SATISFACTION is our goal!

That can happen…however… the whole point of talking these projects out with a client and going thru a STEP APPROVAL process hopefully makes sure you get what you want. 

A clients prerogative….we talk it over and make the necessary course corrections.

DESIGN SPEAK

Bitmap files are basically an image so it has a set optimal resolution…if the image is resized/enlarged, the image may show a distortion. Common bitmap file formats include GIF, JPEG, TIFF and BMP.

Pantone / Pantone Matching System or PMS colors are a color matching system. This system exists to make sure a designer can match the colors to the design and this leads to consistency of color across your branding. 

Vector files are files that you can resize, scale, and even change colors or fonts without losing any quality or resolution on your image. Common vector file formats include EPS (Encapsulated PostScript), AI (Adobe Illustrator) and CDR (CorelDRAW).

(CMS) Content Management System is a website that allows the customer to manage their own content instead of having to rely on a designer to make frequent updates. 

Resolution refers to the size, sharpness and clarity of an image. This can vary from 72dpi to 1200dpi or higher…you at some point in time will be asked for a “HIGH REZ” image from someone….these days with digital technology…cameras and phones take “HIGH REZ” images if used correctly.
