The Design Process


Consultation

  • It's important to get a sense about my clients, know their needs for the project, and know their tastes.  This is done through e-mails, phone calls, or meetings in person.  During this part of the process, I draft up a rough plan on paper.  If a customer feels that they require more inspiration, I often refer them to my online store and ask them to send me links to products that they like and indicate what it is that they like about each one. 
  • I also need to know the timing for the project, along with the budget and timeline.
  • If required, we choose a printing company and research dimensions of the product, bleed size, and format to export the design in.

Design

  • Once I have a good concept of what you are looking for, I start to rough out the design in Adobe Illustrator. 
  • I like to keep my customers actively involved in the process, so I often e-mail parts of the design as I go along to ensure you are happy with the direction that the design is taking.

Artwork

  • When the design is complete, I will send you a preview of your design to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the final product.
  • Any final revisions will be made, then sent to you to review and provide final approval.
  • Upon completion of payment, the final files will be sent to you. 

Publishing

  • The final step is to publish your work.  This is performed by a printing company of your choice.  I generally encourage my customers to deal with local printing companies, as I believe in supporting local business and I feel that it reduces costs to my clients.  I can offer recommendations as to the type of printing company that I feel produces a good product.  I also deal with an online printing company who produces excellent products if a local printer does not suit my client's needs. 
  • Please note that printing costs are not included in the design fee.

    Every project is different, so we will require as many details pertaining to the job as possible.  The more prepared you are, the less your project will cost.

    During the consultation, an estimated cost will be determined and 50% of that fee will be required to be paid prior to the project initiation.  Please keep in mind that the final price will not match the estimate exactly and may be less or more.  Any revisions outside of the regular design process will likely add time to the estimation.  For more information on our pricing, please consult the terms and conditions below.


    Files will be sent to customers after the final installment has been paid.

    WEBSITES:

    Websites can vary greatly in price.  The pricing depends on the amount of pages that you require for your site, whether you require an online store, the number of custom images your site needs, etc.  Outside of the initial fees for setting up your website, there are additional monthly hosting fees, a one-time fee for custom domain names (eg. www.pamsdesigns.ca - you can choose to have a free site name by using www.yolasite.com/pamsdesigns, but this will make you appear less credible to perspective customers)

    Color proofing

    With all printing, it can be expected that there may be some colour variations from what you have seen on screen to what the final product looks like. There may also be variations in colours between printing runs.  This is due to the nature of CMYK printing and bulk-run printing systems.  The delivered files are not considered colour-accurate proofs.  Colour prints from client-owned equipment are also not considered to be colour-accurate proofs.
