All creatives work in different ways so I believe it’s important to meet each other, whether its in person or over the phone. I offer free consultations as it helps both of us understand how each other work and if we are a good fit to work together. These are just a few things I’ve found help us keep on track and make the most of the hour.
To best prepare for this session:
Bring a list of services and questions you may want to enquire about
All my services and pricing are available on my service pages of my website. If your unsure on what budget you may need to work with and what services you want, this is a good place to start. Having a list for the meeting will make it easier to remember what you would like to ask me about and help me figure out what your business needs.
Think about your budget
Graphic design is an investment for your business as it instantly provides a professional and quality perspective for your customers. The cost for design and printing can be found on my website but printing embellishments such as raised print and foiling quantity need to be done by quote so you need to consider your budget if you want additional embellishments. Having a rough budget in mind before I get to work certainly helps the design process as I can design and print within it.
Be prepared to talk
Be prepared to talk about the values of your business and why you are in business, my job is to represent your business and it’s branding. The aim of my designs are to be a direct reflection of your business’ style and personality as well as a representation of what your business stands for and it’s core values - this is why I prefer to meet you face to face so I can get a feel for both you and your brand.

Bring some Promotional Material
It’s important for all of your promotional material like brochures, business cards, banners, price lists, menus etc to be well branded and consistent so they are instantly recognisable to your business and makes you easier to remember. If you already have some please feel free to bring them in and we can make sure any new designs work with what you already have or whether they may need an update.
Can I bring my children?
Of course you can, I work with a lot of Mum’s so I completely understand how difficult getting out for coffee and a chat can be. I’m more than happy to go to a child friendly cafe or even your home if you feel more comfortable.
Where can we meet?
Most consultations I provide are held at a local cafes, this offers us both a comfortable area to meet and enjoy a drink but I am more than happy to meet at your workplace or home.
