How do you charge for your work?

I charge using an hourly rate and will scope the entire project before quoting. 

How long have you been doing design?

I have been in the field since 2007. Initially I started in agencies and eventually worked my way towards freelancing where I have been for the last 7 years. 

Can you code?

Yes. Am I developer? No. I know enough CSS and HTML to create mock-ups and edit existing templates for things like Wordpress and Bootstrap. I even know how to work a bit of Javascript. But I am by no means your I-only-code-in-notepad level web developer. What does that mean for my design work? It means I understand the capabilities and limitations of development for web and its best practices, and thus ensure I don't make things unnecessarily difficult via my design style.

Do you have any other examples of your work?

Yes! I have signed around a million NDAs from clients that mean I can't show the work I have done for them publicly on my own website. However sharing examples discreetly does not breach many of them. Get in touch if you'd like to see more. 

How do you quote for work?

All estimates are created based on the original brief. Anything that ends up being out of scope as the project progresses I will discuss with you to confirm you wish to proceed. I will then send an additional estimate for the hours required. Once that has been approved we can move forward. I don't ever bill for hours that haven't previously been discussed and formally approved via a Harvest estimate

Do you have agency experience?

Yes. The agencies I am currently working with include BoylenBapple and JP Media

How do you invoice?

I have an ABN and work as a sole trader. All of my prices are subject to GST for Australian clients only. My payment terms generally require an up front payment of 50% of the entire project cost, with the remaining 50% to be paid upon completion. 

Is there any chance you could give us a discount?   

Sorry. Good work isn't cheap and cheap work isn't good. I'm happy to help you work to a price but the best way to do that is to ensure that the project scope matches your current budget. I'd rather not discuss reducing my rate to fit everything in.  

Are you willing to work remotely? 

Yes. I am currently working remotely for a number of my clients. 

Do you do print design?

Not really, sorry.

I'm a recruiter. Are you interested in a full time role?

Sorry, my main focus right now is freelance or contract work.

How do you meet multiple deadlines for all of your clients? 

I never take on more work than I can complete. If I am working on a project with you it will be completed by the agreed date and time, regardless of your world timezone.
