About this pro
Great design isn’t created in a bubble. Stacy opened herself up for an amazing dialogue for what my vision was for, not only my logo but for what I wanted to envision spatially in my yoga studio. No matter how experienced or talented a designer is (and let me tell you she is), collaboration is necessary. Don't get me wrong she does not need to be micromanaged, on the contrary she is a go-getter. She was a joy to work with. The result was an absolute fantastic one of a kind eye-popping logo. And her designing assistance in my yoga studio created a wonderful Feng Shui for all that entered. People would say "Wow, what a wonderful peaceful feeling I get when I'm here, I love your studio. As a big bonus...some of the techniques I learned from working with Stacy designing my Yoga Studio filtered in my organization and designing of my home. So now I have a more peaceful home I refer to as my Zen Den. Thanks to Stacy I live a more abundant, tranquil life. - Kathleen Ames YogaUtopiaJul 27, 2018
Stacy conceived a design which was both unlike anything I ever could have imagined and dead-on. She has a unique ability to see a project on many levels.Jul 17, 2018

Stacy Kroot is a top notch artist. She's quick and reasonable. We would highly recommend her.Jul 17, 2018
Stacy Kroot is a visual alchemist. She has a way of looking at a problem and finding a solution which is elegant, efficient and novel. She was instrumental in solving some challenging problems for my interior design project. In addition, Stacy is very detail oriented, considering things I never would’ve thought of. She is careful to think through all aspects of design and also to consider the costs. She is easy to work with and easy to get along with. Working with Stacy was truly a pleasure!Jul 17, 2018

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My design rate is $120 hr There are many variables to consider in Graphic Design work. Some examples are, how many images, will images need to be sourced, original image quality, editing and or retouching, text copy and editing, final output, quantity of potential applications and sizes, overseeing printing and any potential hand work applied, amount of pages, packaging, etc.... For Interior Design work some of the variable can be: over seeing entire project, finding general contractor, will client be looking to purchase materials on their own and interested in having designer more as a consultant, etc.....

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I start with a design brief, a detailed questionnaire used to get as much information up front. This usually will include a phone conversation. After all the information is received, I will generate a contract detailing the scope of the project/s, projected cost/s, timeline/s, liability and extra considerations. These first two steps are very important to minimizing additional costs, missed deadlines and allowing time for elements within the project that may need more time. When contract is signed I will require 50% payment. Once the payment is received the design process will begin. When the initial round of samples have been developed, I will send you preliminary concepts. You will have a set time to respond along with an established set of revision rounds included in the cost. A “revision round” allows as many changes as you would like to see, as long as they're given to us all at the same time and within the initial scope. Example: Logo Design 3 samples supplied in 1-10 business days. Client will have 4 days with which to respond Client can choose 1 design with 2 revision rounds, or 2 designs with 1 revision. Each project and design service have their own set of guidelines to be established, but will generally follow the same format with timeline allowances. When the project is complete the client will accept and sign off and final payment will be due. Upon receipt of final payment client will receive final files. Because design is fluid there may be some wonderful surprises that show themselves in the process that I will be sharing with you. This is a process that takes good communication and my goal is to always supply that.
