PHILOSOPHY

My design philosophy follows a path that creates beauty, develops awareness, sparks interest, and has a powerful impact while maintaining an appropriate and suitable functionality.

I provide my clients with a meaningful concept, and bring that idea to a conclusion that meets the needs of their expectations. Good design can be both fun and functional, and good communication is often the key to achieving that goal.

POLICIES

PROCESS

What does Di Visions do?

I provide design expertise with an end result that satisfies clients requirements from concept to finished product: logos, posters, flyers, program guides, corporate identities, signs, banners, swag, web ads and more. My design goal follows a path that creates beauty, develops awareness, sparks interest, and has a powerful impact while maintaining an appropriate and suitable functionality.

What can Di Visions do for you?

My role as a designer is to work closely with my clients in order to provide them with a meaningful concept, and to bring that idea to a conclusion that meets the needs of their expectations. Good design can be both fun and functional, and good communication is often the key to achieving that goal.

How does Di Visions work?

As a designer working with a client, we both want the same thing, a great end product. My job includes finding a way to reach that goal effectively. I am happy to explain what I am doing and why. If you are new to working with a designer I will walk you through the process. I will supply an estimate based on the provided specs and deadline(s), and once approved, I will move forward with a draft after discussing the goals of the project, and work through the process towards a final proof. Upon further approval, I can liaison closely with outside suppliers when necessary in order to maintain quality control.

How does Di Visions estimate a design fee?

Each project begins with a discussion about your needs, to determine the scope of the work. You’ll receive an estimate including specifications and terms. If the amount of work involved changes, we’ll discuss options. I prefer to avoid speculative work. Revisions may be discussed verbally if we need to accommodate a tight deadline, although I prefer to have any changes sent in the form of an email. Three rounds of small revisions are allowed; after that, additional changes are charged based on an hourly rate as outlined up-front. Quality, usage licensing and purchase of supplied art or fonts are the responsibility of the client.

TIMING

Each project generates its own requirements and therefore turnaround times can differ greatly. Once the delivery deadline is determined, a schedule is developed in order to meet the agreed upon deadline. Any changes to the schedule that affects the deadline may therefore need to be adjusted.

Clients are responsible for providing content (such as text, fonts and/or photos) required for layouts on time.

The design process might need to be put on hold until all content is received. If a delay slows down the process, the deadline may need to be adjusted.

Occasionally, a practical reality requires the temporary postponement or acceleration of a project. I do my best to remain flexible; however, any change in a project’s schedule may require a revisiting of contract terms: if there is no contact from the client for 30 days, the project will be considered on hold. After 90 days with no communication, the project will be considered abandoned and will need to be reviewed and re-quoted before proceeding.

A rush charge may also be necessary in certain instances.

 

MONEY

The fees and terms in an estimate are good for 30 days. After 30 days the project will be re-evaluated to determine if the initial fees and terms hold, or if a new proposal will need to be provided before proceeding with the project.

Payments are net 30 days. A late fee of 2% of the balance owed will be charged if payment is not received within 30 days.

Payments by cheque are preferred but can also be sent through Interac e-transfer. Credit cards are not accepted.
