Before designing anything, it’s usually best to meet for an initial free consultation in order to establish exactly what it is that you require. Some people like being precise, and yes, I’m one of them… Anyway, based on this meeting I can work out a free, non-obligation quotation. The quote will tell you:
> what I will do
> by when I will do it and have it completed
> how much it will cost
It also specifies other details like payment terms, scope of the job, etc. Once you’re happy with the quote you sign it and I can begin with design development.
As a client you’re kept in the loop the whole time. For example, if the scope of the job changes (you need more or less than originally anticipated) I will address this and supply an adjusted estimation for your approval.
