- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
The investment depends on multiple factors: the size of the wall, how detailed the artwork is, wether it’s just replicating a logo for example or creating the design from scratch. I am happy to offer discounts on projects that give me artistic freedom aligned with client’s business and message of course. The minimum investment is $1000 and it goes up depending on the factors stated above.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
For murals: An introductory phone call where we talk about client’s needs and ideas and the process of making it a reality. If we decide that we are a good fit, we sign a contract that protects both parties. After the contract is signed and a 20% deposit is paid, I start the design process. Three sketches are created and the client chooses their favorite option. One round of revisions is included. More is available at an additional fee. Once we have the decision on the design, I create a mock up so that the client can see the art in the space. This gives the client a really good idea on how the mural is going to look like and then we arrange the time of installation/painting of the artwork. After the artwork is successful finished, the rest of the payment is due.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Bachelor of Architecture and Associates in Graphic Design degrees. Oil painting apprenticeship.
