Introductory Questions

I have a very effective and time-saving design process, that ensures that the client’s vision is realized. First I talk with you so I understand your business and goals. Next I create original design concepts based on your input. I will send you my concepts for you to approve, and if revisions are necessary, I’ll take my design back to the drawing board, and come up with a new idea based on your new feedback. This process will be repeated until you are completely satisfied with the design.

If we are working on a logo, you will then get your final logo in the most common file formats (.eps, .tiff, and .pdf) which you can use for any type of reproduction.

If we are working on a website, I will then format the site into xHTML and CSS, and send you a test link once the site is ready. If approved, I launch the site, sharing your message with the world.

If we are working on print material, I submit the files for production, and contact you when they are ready.

You simply need to contact me by phone at 714.328.9612, or by using the contact form to the right. I’ll get back to you as soon as possible with more information on the next steps to get your project started.

I have years of experience in print design and website design, and know how to build your project to meet the current media standards.

In addition, I am a firm believer in direct communication. I don’t outsource my design work. When we discuss your project, you will be talking with the person who is actually working on your project whether it be design, coding, or publishing. This allows for direct feedback and quality discussion about the possibilities for your project.

Services Beyond Design

Yes. I can register your domain name, and provide web hosting for your website.

Yes. All of my websites come with SEO packages included in the pricing. This is one of the many ways I separate myself from the competition. I know how to design your site to ensure that you are found by the major search engines, (Google, Yahoo!), and will work with you to develop keywords and phrases that generate leads. I will also submit your website to the major search engines, which helps them index your site in less time.


I charge $250 for a front / back postcard design. These can be used as promotional postcards, save the date postcards, invitations etc. The back of the design meets the standard USPS design requirements so you can drop them in the mail and be certain that the post office will not have any issues mailing the postcard to the desired destination.

I charge $150 for a front / back design. The design process is very similar to the logo design process, where I send proofs for the client to view and approve before they are sent off for production.

I charge $400 per logo. The design process is outlined previously in this FAQ page.

Websites can vary in complexity and pricing depends on the size of the site, and the site’s functionality. To be honest, I will probably not be the lowest bid you receive. If you just want to get your site out the door for the lowest price without regard for quality, you should probably look elsewhere. I am passionate about creating the best solution and I take the time to do things the right way, using all the current techniques to make sure your web presence represents your company in the best light. If you can appreciate the value of custom thoughtful website design, hopefully we can work together.

A custom small to medium sized business website with somewhere between 4 – 6 pages, and page titles along the lines of “Home,” “About Us,” “Services,” and “Contact,” will start around $2,000. For added features such as a CMS (content management system), eCommerce, message boards, or secure login areas, the price will be higher.
