HOW LONG WILL THE BRANDING TAKE? Each client and project are unique, and treated as such, and therefore each project will be different in terms of completion. On average, the branding process will take at least 4 weeks to complete from start to finish, with revisions and response time in mind.
NEED A WEBSITE FOR YOUR BUSINESS AS WELL?
If you have not gone through the branding process, or are looking for a refresh on those elements, in addition to a website, the WordPress Branding + Website Design package may be a better fit for your business! We’ll work together from start to finish on the entirety of your project so you are cohesive and functional.

ON THE DOUBLE
To secure a date on my calendar and begin the process, the initial deposit is $200.
The deposit is non-refundable, as it removes the date in my calendar, therefore becoming unavailable to potential clients.
After our consultation, and we both feel we are a good fit to work together, I will send out the contract for the package of your choice alongside a deposit for $200. The remaining core balance of $100 will be due in one additional payment. The payment will be due prior to the start date, which is normally the 1st of the that starting month.
Payment must be paid in full before any work on branding project is done.
Anything beyond the package cost, including add-ons, or additional services, will be invoiced separately by the first payment due date as well.
The Branding Signature Package process takes a minimum of 4 weeks to complete.
Average timeframe focuses on my Branding process takes about 4 weeks. Each client is different, therefore each project will be different in terms of the timeline to completion.
Although the project includes 4 hours of work, that does not mean it will be completed within one day, as I believe in and practice the collaborative process for all the brands I create.
From start to finish, your project is tracked using a timer program called Harvest. This will track all the work I do on said project, including building your brand, design elements, email communication, and all revisions throughout the process.
The time allowance of 4 hours included is based off tracking data I've collected over 5 years of working on my clients' respective branding projects. On average, this is more than enough time to get everything accomplished for the Branding Signature process.
It’s my promise that I will work efficiently within your time allowance, keep track of everything I do, and give you access to a live view of our time and what it is going towards at all times.
What can I do to ensure I stay on track with the project timeline for completion? Why is communication so important?
Communication is key to staying on track within your project process. Once we begin our collaboration of the design, you will need to frequently check your email for all things design related, and reply within 24-48 hours. This is to ensure your design is completed in a timely and efficient manner. We will work as a team throughout this process, step by step, so a delay will halt the work until a response has been sent. This can eat up a lot of potential work days if responses are not sent within 48 hours.
Other factors to consider and be on top of are: turning in and responding to homework, having some knowledge of your ideal audience and business goals (or make time to learn some aspects of these factors), making sure login information needed is correct so I can gain access (if needed), and/or sending in required files and documents needed ahead of schedule or quickly when asked for.
I cannot stress it enough that email communication + responses are KEY to a project staying on schedule.
As I've said before, communication is key for progress. If you choose me as your designer, I am your partner in this journey, however, you also have to be in 100% as well for this to work. If you know your going to be in a busy season during the time we are scheduled to work on your project, let's schedule a better date for you to be fully present.
Any communication/feedback delays that last more than 1 week (7 days) (without prior notice) will automatically add a “Lack of Communication" Fee of $30 to your invoice. If a client does not respond or communicate within 3 weeks (21 days) the project will be suspended and there will be a $100 Restart Fee to resume the work on a branding project, and any other services you’ve hired me to do.
All accumulated "Lack of Communication" fees AND restart fee MUST be paid in full before I begin work on your project again, no exception.
I do understand that emergencies do happen, so if this is the case, please send me a simple email letting me know your situation.
Ultimately, each client I work with will vary depending on the needs for their personal project, and therefore additional time may be needed to complete. In this case, time overage will be invoiced at the rate of $60 per hour, and must be paid in full before any final design files are sent.
By agreeing to the terms of design contract, you agree that there may be a possibility of going over the time allowance. I will do my best to make sure you are notified prior to going over time, however, you yourself will always have access to the live timesheet view to check as well, and it is not my responsibility to send reminders of where we are with usage.
The Branding Signature Package does not include any of the following: Custom Clip Art Creation, Paid Fonts, Printing Services, Original Design Files, Templates. If needed, these costs will be added separately to your invoice and/or can be purchased separately.
I've worked on a branding project with you before -- Can I work with you again to re-design my branding, change my fonts, and/or update my colors?
Sure! Please contact me directly and I'll give you a custom quote on changing any elements of a previous design package we've worked on.
Can we work together if I have existing branding (from another designer), and want some changes to that design?
Unfortunately, because I was not the original designer, and I always respect fellow designers artistic process, I cannot alter existing branding elements that I did not originally make. With that being said, we would need to go through the branding process together, and can apply your new changes and ideas to the project we collaborate on.
Yes! I work with new and existing clients. If you are looking for a full re-brand without a website design, this is the package for you.
If you'd like me to do the full branding process in additional to a full WordPress Website Design, the WordPress Branding + Website Design package is going to be a better option!

I continue to work alongside fellow teacherpreneurs and small businesses, sharing my passion (and knowledge) of being creative, and building something of my own. With each client I work with, I try to help them make an impact within their business by building them a unique brand and a functional (and beautiful) online space that shines. ✨
