Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Cheaper is not always better—or cheaper. Sometimes a low up front quote signifies inexperience. Often this leads to multiple re-dos, more money, abandoned projects and missed deadlines.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. I am particularly fond of puzzles and, as such, I approach each project as a problem that needs to be solved. After sorting through all the available information from a client and my own research, I brainstorm and come up with solutions that often surprise the client — in a good way.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I love it when my clients say, "I'm always excited to see what you are going to present". That tells me that I have done my job.

Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.

A. A recent job I am most proud of is the animated Public Service announcement (PSA) I worked on for SCEDP
( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NpzEOLsTlDc ). It was a true collaboration with talented people around the country: a copywriter in South Carolina, an animator and a photo retoucher in Southern California and me, the illustrator, in Northern California. During this three month project, we would meet via an on-line meeting place. Though we were never in the same room together, we were always on the same page.

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. My pricing is dependent on the scale and scope of a project and the client business size and industry. When I accept a job, I work within the client's budget (big or small). I realize that a start-up or non-profit will not have the same budget or broad reach as a Fortune 500 company. I scale my fees accordingly.
