I have hired Lion & Poppy to do a number of different projects for me over the years. This includes everything from business logos to wedding and baby shower invitations. She remains one of my favorite artists. The quality and creativity is always delightful and unsurpassed.Dec 13, 2018
Nicole drew the logo for my farm CSA business R-Evolution Gardens. I loved her style and the way she took my comments into careful consideration when working on the art. The hand drawn illustration was totally unique and unlike anything I could get from a computer based designer. It made our farm stand out at the farmers market and in our online marketing. Anyone who has worked with Nicole knows how much quality means to her and how much care she takes in every detail to make sure her clients are happy. She also worked on an accelerated timeline to make sure I was able to have a logo ready for our season at short notice. Couldn't recommend her more! A true professional designer who is fun, creative, caring and quick!Nov 16, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?As a Calligrapher and Illustrator I do a wide variety of creative work from simple pieces to larger work using various tools and media. Because of this, I've opted to leave the pricing in my profile blank as the template on Thumbtack doesn't reflect the variety of jobs vs. pricing that I offer. That's okay, let's have a conversation and see what I can do for you! I am dedicated to creating quality works that bring joy to my clients while keeping my prices competitive. Call today!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Tell me what you envision! We begin with a conversation where you tell me what it is that you want and I'll take notes of your lettering details or make sketches. Typically, I'll have a few questions for you ensuring that I get all the details. We agree on a price and a timeline and then I get to work! *Depending on the complexity of the job, with illustrations/logos I generally send preliminary sketches to discuss before creating your final work.
