Hi, I'm Jenna. I'll do your graphics.
Graphic Designer specializing in accessible layout design and branding, with a healthy dose of custom typography and illustration sprinkled in. With a BA in Fine Art from Christopher Newport University and 10 years of experience working with individuals, small businesses, and nonprofits, I’m ready to answer all your questions and make all your design headaches disappear. No convoluted jargon, no extra formalities, just casual and focused collaboration to get you to where you really want to be—running your business. You can check my Price Guide for a general idea of how much larger projects could cost, or get in touch about smaller projects for a quote.
What to Expect
This is the general flow of working with me on a project. Of course each one is different, so we'll discuss your specific project during the consulting phase to figure out just what you need. Check my Pricing Guide for some insight on what kind of prices to expect.
First, I want to get to know you, your brand, and your project. We’ll set up an introductory meeting and talk about the specifics of what the problem is and how we can best solve it. Once we have a game plan, we’ll talk contract and deposit. Life is too short for buzzy business words or legalese, so my contracts are written in plain, understandable English. And nobody signs anything until we’re both happy.
Next is the concept phase. I’ll come up with a few drafts of different ideas (concepts) for you to decide which direction you want to go in. Don’t worry, I’ll also include some short explanations of why I did what I did, where I was going, and what my recommendations are. Nobody should have to make uninformed decisions.
This is probably my favorite part. We have another chat, this time looking over the drafts. You tell me what you like and don’t like, what concerns or questions you have, and all that good stuff. From there we hone in on one draft and develop it until it’ll make the most impact on your audience. Again, don’t be intimidated! I’m an expert at taking complex design concepts and explaining them in simple terms.
Home stretch! At this point I take all the input and move full-steam ahead in the direction you chose. Any other small revisions or corrections happen in this phase, too.
This is the finish line! The project is done and all the deliverables are beautiful and press-ready. At this stage I hand off all finalized files, you send the final payment, and the contract is fulfilled. It was lovely working with you, let’s do it again sometime!
Thanks for the email, I just can't wait to chat with you!
