Some common questions I get asked & some honest answers.

Agencies are great at large companies with big budgets – small business is a sweet spot for me.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”Why aren’t you working for a fancy design firm?” el_id=”1468525100215-b23d1278-652d”]To be honest – I am a bit of a senior-senior designer, which means I’m in my 50’s and most design agencies want a younger crew of designers and creative directors. Which at this point in my career if fine with me, with my vast experience, I prefer working directly with small businesses and making a bigger difference.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”What’s your greatest strength?” el_id=”1468525997610-f86a036f-67e4″]Building relationships – I good at listening to client’s and helping identify needs, sharing helpful advice, and getting results. I leverage all my talent and experience acquired over 30+ years of working with clients of all sizes to help make marketing initiatives successful. My primary goal is happy clients – not awards and max billings.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_toggle title=”Why not use a cheaper online design contest to get work done?” el_id=”1468526928534-70eb9715-cd3c”]Most of those designers are not very experienced or good business people. Most are from other countries and will not be around next time you need something. I have friends that have run logo contests and like the results, but you don’t get real interaction, guidance, or true experience. Think about it – if you pay $400 for your logo, the agent (website) get a third, only one designer gets paid the remainder – so the other 20-80 designers get nothing for their efforts. If each designer had an equal shot at winning contest and payment (which they don’t really, but lets pretend) – they would average $5-$10 per logo. How long could you survive on $10 per logo? Good luck with edits a year or two later.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row]
