Looking for high-quality design without the lengthy timeline or hefty price tag? A focused and collaborative design sprint will allow us to build your brand, refresh your website, or simply check some design tasks off of your to-do list – within one week or less.
You are in the early stages of your business and just need the brand essentials to get started rather than an in-depth, strategic design process
You are on a tight timeline and don't want to spend weeks of back and forth on a full-service design package
You have tried to DIY your brand visuals but aren't feeling super confident about what you are putting out there
Your budget is limited and you aren’t ready to invest in custom design just yet
You trust in my expertise and believe my style aligns with your brand’s aesthetic
You enjoy a fast-paced process and are good at making quick decisions
After we select a start date for your project, I'll invite you to our shared Notion workspace. Each intensive will require you to complete a few tasks before your project begins (completing questionnaires, adding visual inspiration, etc.). We'll kick things off with a call to review everything and make sure we are on the same page.
Time to dive into designing! I'll create a project schedule to keep track of when deliverables and feedback are due. After sharing my progress and gathering your feedback, I'll make revisions to address any changes you'd like to see. For web intensives, I'll be sure to test your website across different browsers and devices.
I’ll send you an organized folder of all final files and assets. For brand intensives, I'll provide a brand style guide that will offer the guidance you need to maintain your new brand. For web intensives, I'll send you a training video on how to edit your Webflow website. You should now have all the tools you need to confidently present your brand to the world!
An Intensive is a simplified and condensed version of my custom design packages. You'll still walk away with professional, high-quality design but we won't dive as deep into the strategy behind the design. Brand and web intensives include 1 round of revisions, where custom packages typically include 2 rounds of revisions. Intensives are completed within 1 week or less, where custom packages can take anywhere from 6-10 weeks.
For Design Days, I'll need your prioritized list of tasks you'd like me to accomplish. For brand and web intensives, I'll send you a questionnaire to fill out before your project start date. I'll be asking you all about your business, your goals, visual inspiration, etc. For web projects, you'll also need to provide written copy and professional photography that will be displayed on your site. I can suggest a copywriter or photographer if you need a recommendation. Throughout the project, you'll need to provide feedback on the design concepts that I present to you.
Yes! I always break projects up into payments to make the investment a little easier. I require a 50% deposit for all Intensive projects in order to hold your spot. The other 50% is charged at the end of the Intensive.
Intensives are best for newer businesses who may still be figuring out their target audience and brand values. Design Days are best for returning clients who need additional design support.
Design Days are time-based and do not include guaranteed deliverables. Before you book your Design Day, we'll discuss your task list and I'll give you an estimate of what I think I'll be able to accomplish. You always have the option of booking an additional Design Day if there are more tasks you'd like me to complete.
After 10+ years of experience as a designer, I've learned to work efficiently without sacrificing the quality of my work. I've structured these intensives in a way that allows us to do some discovery before we kick off the day/week together. This way, we have a plan of action from the start and I can immediately dive into design work.
