Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
A. Before you hire a graphic artist for your project, make sure that he/she can actually perform the task that you have in mind. Some graphic artist are new to the industry and will accept almost any project and keep their fingers crossed hoping they don't mess up and take too long, prolonging your project and affecting your budget. Make sure you look through their portfolio and notice if there are posters, designs, or layouts somewhat similar to what you have in mind. . .in other words, make sure they CAN actually do the job!

The special ingredients that goes into creating beautiful portraits, montages and eye-catching designs is passion, personal time, attention to detail and self-energy. The amount of time and energy I put into an assignment will vary depending on the complexity of the project. I don't compromise on quality; my work is a reflection of me, so I give my best every time I get into action. I have worked on projects ranging from 10 hours up to 50 hours.
