PROCESS/WORKING WITH ME First, I just want to say what an honor it is that you are interested in working with me. I came to this work by way of people asking- such a gift to make part of my income off of something that I love to do. I see this work as a collaboration between myself and the person I am working with- to bring your idea and vision out of your head and into this dimension. After some flaky and difficult clients I started requiring all clients to sign contracts and make a partial payment up front but I want you to know the process is less rigid then it sounds in the contract. The contract creates the container for us to work within. Below you will find a brief explanation of what the process will look like and under that is a series of questions that will help to get the process started. Feel free to cut and paste the questions and your answers into an email.
What the logo/illustration process will look like: 1. We have a conversation via email (it is helpful for me to have everything in writing to refer to once I begin working on the image- but if you prefer to talk on the phone just let me know) to determine the scope of the project, your vision, cost and any other relevant details. At this time we will also decide on a timeline for the project- when you can expect each round of sketches as well as the final image. 2. If we agree to the collaboration I will next send you a follow up email going over what we talked about along with a contract- half of the *payment is due up front along with the signed contract and the remainder is due upon completion of the job. *You can pay via PayPal, Venmo or check.
Questions to get started: 1. What is your business/project? Do you have a website I can look at? 2. What will you be using the logo/image for? Website, social media? Labels? 3. What kind of imagery/symbols are you interested in/drawn to? 4. Black & White or color, if color is there a particular palate you are drawn too? Do you see the image painted in watercolor? Acrylics? If B&W- pencil? Paint? 5. Are there any logos/images you love? If so you can email them to me, or send me a link to their the business so that I can check it out. 6. Some people like to create a Pinterest board of their ideas/vision and share it with me- but that’s totally optional. 7. If we are making a logo- would you like text embedded into the logo or will the logo be imagery that you can use with or without text- I can send you examples of a job that has both. Would you like me to handwrite the text or would you like to use a computer font? What fonts do you like? All caps? Caps and lowercase? Just lowercase?
