Q. Describe three recent jobs you've completed.
A. Full, cohesive design package for 7C's Swim School in the Bothell/Woodinville area of WA State.

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Anyone can pick up a mouse and claim they're a graphic or web designer. The reality is there's a process that needs to be worked through for everything from a logo design to a fully functional e-commerce website. We work with our clients to create a functional priority list of design & marketing needs to help them reach their full potential!
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. Read our testimonials on our website. It's what our clients say about working with Trendesigns versus what our portfolio looks like.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Do you have references?
Do you have experience in the Print Market?
Do you host your websites?
Do you use an accepted CMS language for your websites?
How long have you been in the business of design?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Our attention to detail allows us the luxury of being able to confidently see a project through from start to finish. We are NOT in the business of just handing someone a file and walking away. We want our customers to be involved in the design and creative process, and no job is too small!
Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A. Most often we're asked if we take payments for our services, in lieu of 50% upfront, 50% at the finish line. Almost always we answer yes. Nowadays, small businesses are strapping down their finances, and we understand that and want to flexible so they can have a real design team in their corner!
Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.
A. Primarily, we do NOT have an hourly rate. Our fees are project or "item" based. We have some set fees for web design, but even then it's modular and able to expand to fit your needs. Promotional Products or ScreenPrint projects are payable in advance, and vary based off quantity, product, and other deliverables.
