    Our project was a music based website with on demand audio and video as well as online radio integration. The project was finished timely and, in our opinion, the best value when you consider the ongoing support provided and product quality. jfl3 creative is strongly recommended and you should think twice before using another designer.

    I personally researched and interviewed many of the highest rated graphic artist on Thumbtack and other similar websites. I noticed a disturbing trend. What I discovered is while many people have bios that are exceptional, often they are not the one doing your actual work. In other words, an A-team person smoozes you, gains your confidence, wins the job and then farms it out to a B or C-team person or worse yet, puts your project out for bid on Fiverr or another site for a fraction of what you are being charged. Unfortunately, the more people that touch your project, the more the original idea gets diluted or even corrupted. After an exhaustive search, I settled on Joe for several reasons: He has an extensive background in advertising, graphic design, presentation development, PowerPoint, Keynote and website development. This gives him a very unique perspective when creating a project that can be used for print, digital and other mediums. Many designers are one dimensional which limits your future options. Its not his first rodeo! He is the person who actually does the work. You can actually speak with Joe on the phone. He returns call quickly. His prices are very fair. Joe completed several projects for me before I wrote this review. Anybody can do a good job once. Consistency is what I look for. I am not related to Joseph. I was not paid or even asked to write this. Yes, I am a real person. I have given Joe numerous projects, extensive website work, print media, social media and photo retouching. I can honestly say ,Joe is jimmy-john-freaky-fast with your project! He is not happy until you are happy. He has a very pleasant personality, a great attitude and has never seemed frustrated, put off, inconvenienced or annoyed by my requests. He is honest. The initial price quoted is always what you pay when the project is finished. Working with Joe is the biggest no brainer in the history of earth. I could not be more happy and I am VERY hard to please.

    Joe developed a consulting website, and hit the mark exactly on all the important points - Looks great, delivered on time, made it all understandable, and continues to follow up. And it was a reasonable price. Met or exceeded all me expectations, and I will go back to Joe when I need more.

    Joe knows exactly what he is doing! His method covers many steps and phases, ALL geared toward making your site exceed your expectations. His rate was beyond reasonable as well.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Our standard pricing is based on the requirements of the job. A typical flyer or brochure costs $50 - $100 per project depending on the requirements and a standard WordPress site with a custom designed theme starts at $1500 depending on the requirements. We price based on the size and scope of the project and confirm the price and scope prior to starting the project. We do not bill extra time for meetings, travel or teleconferences.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Our process for working with clients begin with a preliminary meeting regarding the projects where the specific requirements and solutions are discussed. Then a formal proposal and work agreement is created detailing the scope and cost of the project. Next, preliminary designs and/or structure are created for review by the client. After revisions and client approval, the designs are then moved to the production phase. Once the project is created, it is sent to the client for review and final adjustments. Once the client has approved the final deliverables, the client is invoiced and we are available for support for up to a year.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Visual Communication. I have been working in print and digital design for over 15 years in a number of capacities from a graphic designer in a print shop to an in-house designer for a marketing agency to Senior Designer at a Communications company.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I made the decision to work in the commercial arts when I was 16 and planned my future accordingly.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with clients from all different backgrounds from comedians to CPA's to Contractors to Therapists to Personalities. Our designs and deliverables are based on what the client's needs and expectations are, not what our personal style or preference may be.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I am proud of all the work we create for our clients. Our most recent, cpfrc.com, was a project that required a quick turnaround. CPFRC had a conference coming in 3 weeks at the time they contacted us. Working with the client, we conceived, designed and constructed the new site and pushed it live with a few days to spare before the conference.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Conduct a phone or in-person interview of the potential candidate. Treat it as a job interview as you are hiring this person to create projects needed for your business. Ask detailed questions about pricing, timelines, and experience they have had creating similar projects. The key is finding a person that you can communicate with, that understands your vision and delivers on time.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
You should have a clear vision in your mind of what the end product should accomplish for your company. A good designer is only as good as the information you give them.
