Q: How long have you been a Web Designer?
A: I have been working regularly as a web and graphic designer for the past 23 years.
Q: Do you have a degree in art and design?
A: I have a Bachelor of Art Degree, with an emphasis in Multimedia Studies, from San Francisco State University.
Q: Where/How do you acquire clients?
A: I mostly rely on word-of-mouth advertising which is a direct byproduct of good service. My work speaks for itself, and I am committed, creative, caring and confident.
Q: How much does a website cost?
A: This is probably the question I get asked most frequently and, unfortunately there isn’t one answer. There are so many variables that it is impossible to state a cost. Most projects start with an hourly rate and are multiplied by the estimated number of hours expected to spend on that project. My service is a highly skilled art that I have spent over twenty years developing. My rates are very competitive for the level of service I provide and my clients benefit by receiving a quality product at an affordable price.
Q: How does your design process work?
A: Every project begins with a client meeting where we discuss design objectives, messaging, brand management and timeline. I may ask to see examples of work you like and examples of work you don’t like. I do not believe it is possible to create an effective design with limited client interaction and input. For websites, I help set up hosting, working with clients to find the most reliable and affordable options. I create a demo site where clients can monitor my progress and provide feedback as I build the site.
Q: What is your favorite part about your job?
A: I absolutely love when my clients are extremely happy with their completed projects. It makes my day when a client is so proud of their project that they want to show it to everyone.
