We have all come to a job posting/board that stated that you need a certain number of years of experience to even be qualified for the position.
That is a little overwhelming isn’t it? Why is it that we like to number things?
I was on the phone with the recruiter for the Mercatus Center and she basically told me to ‘git gud’.
What Are One Time Charges?
I am creating artwork for you that you can reuse time and time again. You will only have to pay for the design once as long as there are no revisions after the final proof.
What Are The Required Elements?
I will guide you through the process of what you need to provide. This will help the project move faster and smoother. It saves everyone time and money by getting as much information possible about the project before starting the design. If this is a new project it is advisable that I provide you with a mockup (also known as a prototype) of the project. The visual helps keep everyone on the same page!
What Are Authors Alterations? (AA)
AA’s or Authors Alterations need to be discussed before the design process starts. This conversation will explain the design process and the fast that all Authors Alterations will incur additional fees. This is an example, “We are going to take all of the text, pictures, and layout idea which you have given us and create your final design. Once we give you the proof, if there are some minor design changes, they will be included in the quoted price. These are called AA’s and will be billed on an hourly basis.” This will help the project move forward and save people time and money.
What Is Proofing?
When I believe that the product has been completed, what you will first see is a proof. This is not for the purpose of redesign; it’s for errors and omissions. I will always work towards getting to the final product approval. You must carefully inspect the proof and mark any errors and omissions. Once you have approved the proof it will be sent into it’s final stage, production.
