Frequently Asked Questions
How are you different?
Most designers are hyper-specialists in their areas of expertise and focus only on their specific deliverables.
While this can be helpful in certain situations, for most organizations it can actually jeopardize your product's quality if team-level communication is not absolutely crystal-clear, and in the fray of the creative process, it rarely is.
That's why I offer a well-rounded, integrated skillset geared for creative teams that I've honed over the last twelve years, combined with a riggorous sytem of design standards to help ensure quality at every stage of the process.
You deserve a designer who can help you address your project holistically, and my goal is to ensure that you get the results you're looking for every time.
What does your process look like?
I actually have a full list of design standards that I like to adhere to in most situations.
These standards are open-source, free of charge, and you can view them here.
How much do you charge?
That can vary a lot depending upon the scope and needs of the project.
If you're looking to get a bid, a second opinion for a project, or looking to hire a full-time dedicated designer, feel free to send me a message on LinkedIn.
Are you a front-end developer?
For front-end development, I highly recommended that your dev team includes a dedicated front-end developer to ensure the stability and scalability of your product.
Are you available for hire?
I'm always happy to discuss potential projects with you. Even if you're just interested in talking shop about what you have in mind, feel free to message me on LinkedIn.
Are you taking on mentees?
As of right now I am not taking on more mentees, however exceptions may be made for special cases. If you're interested in one-on-one training, feel free to message me on LinkedIn.
Can I get the designs on spec?
To ensure both the quality and integrity of my design work, I do not currently offer spec (speculative) work, nor do I provide specifications for speculative work.
