Liz, the owner of Divergent Designs has created some beautiful custom jewelry for me and for our women's association achievement awards. I have hired her on several occasions for her graphic design services for business cards, advertising promotions, banners and custom awards. She is the first person I think of when we need graphic design services. She meets our schedule and contributes ideas that are very creative. Liz thinks outside the box with her designs. Her custom jewelry is beautiful with a mix of colorful stones and beads.Feb 22, 2016
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each project is different and so is it difficult to have a flat rate that covers everything. Things like quantity, turn around time, how complex it is, if it needs to be shipped to you, the number of revisions needed, etc all impact the price. And of course 24-48 hour turn around time will incur rush charges.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process starts with the client filling out the project exploration worksheet. I provide them with a quote that is tailored specifically to their needs. Once expectations & deadlines have been agreed upon I generally require 50% down to start work. Once ready I email proofs in pdf format. The client then responds with any needed changes or their approval. Once approved I then deliver the files & final invoice which is due upon delivery of the files.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a major in Graphic Design & a minor in Jewelry & Metal Smithing.
