About this pro
10 years in business
As a board member of The Michigan WWII Legacy Memorial we called upon Belinda to help us design some promotional materials for our charity. The results were fantastic! Belinda was absolutely a joy to work with and really captured the essence of our project, seeing it through from concept to final art in a timely fashion. I also had the privilege of working with Belinda on a brochure for a client of mine, Holy Cross Children's Services. She didn't miss a beat on this project, as well. We through a lot of copy and photos at her and she was able to fine tune all the elements into a cohesive, easily understood piece. Belinda even provided some valuable editing to our text to help improve our message. I highly recommend Belinda. A true professional who gets it!Dec 10, 2014
Belinda has done several projects for me and the outcome was more than I expected. She is a delight to work with, an expert as her trade and has a good business mind as well! I highly recommend her, she is a real pro...Terry RobertsonNov 2, 2014
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?As a production artist, the rate of $20/hour would include any proofing (typos, grammar, redundancy, spelling, style, pre-flight) and problem solving (finding the best way to present the meat-and-potatoes data). As a creative, my rate of $45/hour would include layout options, setting and maintaining style, color studies, photography and graphics research. The billed hours would be rounded down. The rates are negotiable. Material would be extra, such as DVDs, CDs, stock photography, fonts; and I would require pre-approval of these expenses. Additionally, we can set a project cap. We can estimate total hours of a given project (which would include 3 revisions), then based on my hourly rates establish the cap. I hate to over-charge, so if my actual hours were under my estimate, I would only charge for those hours actually worked. After 3 revisions, the cap would have to be evaluated. Gas mileage and time spent on the first two face-to-face meetings per project would not be billed.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I keep track of the latest developments in software, along with current trends in design.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My projects vary from brochures, posters, price sheets, product sheets, multi-page catalogs, ads, store displays...anything you may see in print.
