Here are answers to a few frequently asked questions. If you need additional information, please send me a message.

I am hired to give businesses a stronger visual brand identity that instills credibility and differentiates them from competitors. Specific services I provide include logo design, print design, and video editing. Learn more about my services.

I have more than 10 years of experience in the fields of graphic design and marketing. I have worked with small and big businesses across the country. My corporate, agency, and consultant experience has allowed me to work with some of the world's leading brands including Precision Digital, FilterSense, the Whole30, Destrehan Plantation, and more. You can learn more about why you should hire me, view my full portfolio, and read client testimonials.

Yes. All of the work is conceptualized, prepared, and done by me. The benefit of working directly with me, the designer, is that it enhances project communication, efficiency, and ensure we stay on track. I do not have any employees or use sub contractors, unless otherwise specified.

I have no set price list or hourly rate. Every project and client has different needs, therefore pricing or hourly rate is determined based on those two things. I am happy to provide you with a unique quote based on your needs. The best way to get a quote is to send me a message with your project requirements. I can then provide you with an accurate quote and/or schedule a time to speak in more detail.

I am here to do more than simply making your visual brand identity “pretty”. I’m here as your partner to help you promote and grow your business.

No. Design skills, experience, accolades, and outcome vary by designer. Therefore, design is not a commodity. My pricing is based on the client, project requirements, and level of expertise I deliver to them.

All projects and design needs are different. Project duration ranges from a couple of days to a few weeks. The time frame depends on the number of project deliverables (logo, business cards, letterhead, signage, collateral, style guide, promotional items, etc.), and availability.

It is possible that I can start working on your project right away. Typically, I focus on existing clients. Please contact me to find out more details.

The process can vary depending on the project, however you can expect something like this:

  1. Define client requirements
  2. Proposal
  3. 50% deposit
  4. Research
  5. Conceptualizing
  6. Rendering
  7. Presentation
  8. Revisions
  9. Final 50%
  10. Delivery
  11. Support

In order to deliver a remarkable result, the client collaborates with me to define a clear creative brief and direction. I conceptualize a variety of ideas and/concepts based on the creative brief, which I narrow down to the best. Then I polish these and present them to you for feedback. This leads to revisions and the final editing.

While it would be easier to replicate someone else’s visual brand, it still does not give you the differentiation and identity your business needs and deserves. Taking the time to explore and develop your visual brand will be an investment that will set you apart and grow your ideal customer base.

It is likely I have, however I can apply and adapt my skills, research and process based on a specific industry. The process and goal are relatively the same, to build a strong visual brand that attracts and retains customers.

All creative work produced by Aesthetic Philosophies will be the property of the client upon full payment. Aesthetic Philosophies reserves the right to use any work for promotional purposes.

Yes. Communication is simply conducted via email, phone and/or video chat as needed. If you are in the area, then I can arrange a face-to-face meeting. I have efficiently worked with businesses in different time zones without any difficulty.

Send me a message. I’ll schedule a call to listen to your needs and guide you through the options. I am here to do more than simply making your visual brand identity “pretty”. I’m here to build a relationship that helps you promote and grow your business.

For most projects, I normally request 50% to be paid upfront prior to scheduling a project. I accept payment via bank transfer, PayPal, or check. The remaining 50% is payable upon project completion.
