Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A. I am always researching and studying on the web. You have to be involved with several online communities to know what's going on. Since we do web design, we have to always be learning.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A. I'm working with a start up financial firm. I told them that if they keep the revisions at a minimum and let me go, I can design their materials for a very low budget. He now has a logo, website, business card, Powerpoint, and two flyers. I don't want to say for how, low, but it was a good deal for him and fun for me.
Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Don't think a large firm with give you large service. You may be handled by a less experienced person. I am involved with every project we take on.
My advice would be to know what you are paying for.
Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to
professionals about their project?
A. We are experts in marketing. I create designs based on business decisions and not just so it looks pretty. I am an expert on what you should say. That's always more important that what you want to say.
In the end, I defer to my clients since the projects are their projects...not my art projects.
