Joe did an amazing job with this project! He is very professional and provided updates throughout the entire project. It was a quick turnaround as well. Truly appreciate it!Jan 3, 2020
We couldn’t have been happier about how our project turned out. Joe is creative, talented and professional. He helped us to clearly define the scope of work, scheduled regular follow up calls to review progress and shift focus as needed, and kept us informed on how changes we made could effect the bottom line while always providing helpful options to that end. Highly recommended!!Dec 22, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a standard rate of $80 dollars per hour, I also provide fixed pricing proposals as well. I offer a free 15 minute phone consultation for all prospective clients so we both can be sure that working together is the best fit for your project. No matter what your timeline, budget & project goals are, I will work with my clients to find a solutions. But in rare cases where I know that I am not the right fit for a project, I will let you know at the outset, and will provide suggestions for finding the right artist to assist you.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I believe that successful creative collaboration relies on communication & trust. This is why I offer a free 20 min phone consultation at the outset of each project. I want to hear your goals, concerns, & constraints so if we decide to work together, we have already established a relationship to build on. During the meeting, we will discuss the project goals, budget, & timeline, and I will follow up with a written agreement or estimate.It not only makes clear the technical requirements of the project and deliverables, it also frames the procedure for any edits or revisions that are typical to creative work. To initiate work on a project, I do require a retainer or deposit proportional to the estimated total. The agreement also outlines payment milestones for ongoing work. Once the project is complete, the final step is your satisfaction!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?In 2010, I graduated with a BFA from the University of Illinois after studying both Fine Art Studio & Art Education. During that time, I also studied at Parsons School of Design for a summer, & won numerous awards for drawing and & painting, and received a scholarship for Artistic Excellence. Since then, I have maintained a professional art, illustration, & design practice while simultaneously holding a tenured position as a public school art teacher, starting an art gallery in Chicago, & delivering talks at institutions such as the Art Institute of Chicago Ryan Education Center & the Museum of Contemporary Art.
