Over the years I have found that the reality is that I am not the right partner for every nonprofit, organization, start-up, business nor every project. Here is what I have learned about successful partnerships:
I could be a great fit for your project if:
You’re a highly effective organization with a proven track record.
I enjoy working with companies that have clear vision, goals, and desire to grow. I enjoy working hard for companies to help them achieve those goals.
You’re an early stage start-up.
I can help early stage start-ups help build their design language, marketing language, and brand if they're open to growth, have ambitions, and willing to try new things.
You’re doing vital work in an innovative way.
I specialize in partnering with organizations pioneering a new approach to an old problem.
You’re looking for an expert to lead an intentional creative process.
With a proven process resulting in compelling creative that connects with your key stakeholders.
You value collaboration and research-driven decision-making.
I marry research, experience and skill to produce creative work that helps you achieve your goals.
I am probably not going to be a great partner for you if:
You know exactly what you want and you just need someone to make it for you.
I am an expert in research-driven design, and successes, and I add the greatest value when collaboration happens with you.
You’re shopping around for the lowest price.
I am not the cheapest option, however I believe that my services can add value to your organization and are well worth the price.
You need something completed right away.
I specialize in working on projects, and for companies, that value research, time, and thoughtful craft.
Sound good? OK, here’s what to do:
First, fill out my project form, and I’ll schedule a brief phone call to learn more about the specifics of your project. Next, I will have an in-person meeting or phone call with you to better understand the problem you’re facing and the creative process I’d lead to help solve it.
After the meeting, I’ll do some research, brainstorm some ideas and generate a proposal with a creative approach, budget (I often present tiers to choose from), schedule and clearly defined deliverables. If everything looks good to you, then you’ll sign the contract and I get to work.
