GRAPHIC DESIGN AND DIGITAL ARTWORK

Each project is unique and will require additional information in order to provide an accurate quote. Pricing provided below is given as a general idea of what to expect, but this rate can increase or decrease depending on the details. Contact me today to hire me for your graphic design or digital artwork!

7 Steps to Commissioning Your Perfect Portrait - This is a blog post I wrote that will help you make some decisions about your artwork. It's geared toward portraits, but much of the information can pertain to illustration as well.

What to Expect When Working With Me - And here's some information about what to expect throughout the process.

INFORMATION REQUIRED TO PROVIDE AN ACCURATE QUOTE

  • What size will your final publication be? The larger the print, the more detail that will be required.

  • How many images will you need? Volume pricing may be available for more than one image.

  • What will the final usage be? Is this art needed for one-time use (such as a wedding invitation) or will it be printed on other objects like posters or t-shirts?

  • In what artistic style would you like your artwork done? Do you want a more cartoon-like look or something closer to realism?

  • What kind of licensing term are you needing? Standard terms are for one year.

  • Do you have a deadline for your artwork? Rush fees may be assessed if artwork is needed quickly.

  • What is your geographical area of use for this artwork? No additional fees are required for US-only distribution.

  • In what format(s) will you require your completed artwork?

  • What kind of budget do you have in mind? Knowing this ahead of time can help me to determine what options may be available to you.

THE PROCESS

  1. The initial consultation is free. We can discuss your project over the phone, through e-mail or preferably, in person. In order to provide you with an accurate quote, I will need the information described above. I may do a some very basic sketches or digital mockups to determine the intricacy of your desired style.

  2. Once I have a clear understanding of the above, I will send a Proposal that includes pricing and other information. 

  3. If extensive designs are necessary, I may include a Non-Disclosure Agreement that must be signed and returned to me prior to commencement of the design work.

  4. I will then send an Invoice for your 50% deposit. Payment options are listed on the invoice. Deposit payment must be received before commencement of the design work.

  5. With the Invoice, I will send a Contract that outlines all financial and legal details surround the transaction. This Contract must be returned signed (an electronic signature request will be sent) before commencement of the design work.

  6. After receipt of the signed NDA, signed contract and deposit, I will provide basic drawings/designs, if necessary.

  7. When we've agreed on a final design, I will begin finalizing the artwork.

  8. Throughout the process, I will share progress photos with you to ensure that the project is headed in the right direction.

  9. Once complete, an invoice for the remaining 50% will be sent. 

  10. When the final payment is received, I will provide you with a receipt.

ADDITIONAL ITEMS THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR QUOTE

  • Quote will be provided based on an estimated number of hours to complete the work. Work in excess of the estimated time will be billed at a rate of $75/hour.

  • Design modifications or additions made after the design has been accepted and work begun, may incur additional fees, depending on the scope of the changes.

Pricing provided below is given as a general idea of what to expect, but this rate can increase or decrease depending on the details. Contact me today to hire me for your graphic design or digital artwork!

When quoting your project, I will give an estimate of the time I expect your project to take from start to finish. My rate is $50/hour. At various phases throughout the project, I will notify you of how much time is remaining in the scope of your work. If the initial time estimate is surpassed, additional work will be billed at $75/hour. Refunds are not available for projects that take less time than estimated.
