about me

I am a freelance graphic designer based in Brooklyn, NY. I specialize in creating websites and promotional materials for artists, musicians, and small businesses. I am comfortable working with clients who supply all of their own artwork and know exactly what they want before beginning the process as well as those who are starting their project with a totally blank slate. I will work with you to come up with a final product that you’re happy with.

I have experience building websites from scratch as well as customizing WordPress and Squarespace. I’ve also set up e-commerce sites using Volusion, and can help you with Search Engine Optimization.

how I like to work

Before we can get started, I’ll need to know some details about your project’s content and the look and feel you’re going for. We can talk on the phone, meet in person, or discuss things over email.

After I have some more information from you, I can give you a project estimate. Projects vary in price depending on your needs. After we discuss the specifics of your project, I will give you an estimate and project agreement. Please note that you are responsible for all written content for your website.  I can give you some feedback about your content, particularly as it relates to Search Engine Optimization, but I will not write any content for you.

Once we’ve decided to work together, I will create three to five initial design drafts for your review. If you don’t like any of the initial design directions, I will create up to three additional options. Two rounds of options are usually enough to come up with a direction that my clients are happy with. With your feedback, I will then refine the agreed-upon design and begin working on the final version.

I kindly request a 25% deposit before beginning any large-scale project with the remainder due upon completion of the project. I also request that most of your project’s content is completed before beginning the design process. There are always text edits and additions that happen throughout the process, but having most of the content ready to go makes the process much smoother and more efficient for everyone involved.

Thanks for getting in touch! I look forward to speaking with you soon.
