Working with Me
I love your artwork. Can I commission you for a project?
My availability is a little limited at the moment but I would still love to hear what you have in mind! Let's chat and we can take it from there.
Can I use some of your artwork for t-shirts, jewelry, or other products for my business?
I'm always open to licensing my artwork so long as it doesn't compete with my own current offerings. For this scenario, I would draw up a licensing agreement based on artwork requested, usage rights, distribution, and type of products. Cost would be reflective of those details.
Please fill out the Needs Assessment Form to get the ball rolling.
How much does it cost?
Every job is unique so rates will vary based on a number of things. That probably wasn't the answer you were looking for but I like to customize my pricing for each job so clients don't get overcharged and I'm able to make a decent wage for my hard work. All rates are based on industry standards.
In order to price a job accurately, I need to get as much information as I can. This is done by having all new clients fill out a Needs Assessment Form. Once that is complete, we can move onto next steps.
My budget is limited. Can you work within it?
Possibly. Just let me know what your budget is when you fill out the form, and I can tell you what I can offer within that budget range.
How do I know I'll get what I'm looking for?
My suggestion before hiring any designer, even a tattoo artist for that matter, is to look at their portfolio of work. That will give you a good indication of style and quality, right up front.
To further ensure you're getting what you want, my process is based on transparency and communication which starts out as a conversation. From that point on, we move through the steps to develop a design that suits.
I don’t like the design, can I get a refund?
My goal at the outset of every project is to understand your needs, vision, and goals by conducting research, asking a lot of questions, and providing opportunities for revision. Working with a you should be a collaboration not something I create in a vacuum so, hopefully, through this process we are able to prevent any disappointing results.
However, sometimes things just don't click. And that's OK! After the first or second set of drafts, if you're just not happy, you do have the chance to cancel. (Don't worry, I won't be offended.) However, the 50% down payment I require before I begin all projects, is non-refundable.
“I had the pleasure of working with Amanda recently and storytelling through her passion of art design, marketing and visual communications is what she does, and does well. I could not have been happier with the process, and outcome with my banner ad concept design that we worked on. I had an idea, but no clue. I had time to get it completed but with a deadline. I had lots of questions and she had all the patience. She stepped in and up and got it completed. I loved the process with Amanda. I loved her ideas, and her professionalism and follow-through (that is a huge MUST when I hire someone). I would recommend Amanda in a heartbeat.” — Steely Springham, Confidence Coach & Athlete Posing & Mental Prep Coach
