3D My Business

Hello! Thank you for visiting my profile on Bark. I'm a designer with 9 years of experience and I do both graphic and motion work. Clients like to know what it's like to work with professionals so I'll detail that here. I've developed a fast and simple process for clients, built around a single order form. This is where I collect the basics of the project and we can then discuss how we'll work together. Over the years I've tinkered with this setup, and clients have told me it works very well. I'm also an author on Medium.com, where I talk mainly about design, development and psychology. You can find me at the following address — https://papacuppa.medium.com/ If you have an idea you're thinking about, please get in touch and we can start brainstorming!

Describe your creative process.

I like to listen more than I talk, and that allows me to get on the same page as the client as soon as possible. Sometimes more discussion is needed before making a start, and that's absolutely fine as well.

Before I reach out I will have my own ideas about what might be needed. I may suggest we browse some of my existing work to see if a spark might be lit, or sometimes we'll look further afield before we find the look that ticks the boxes.

What information do you need from a client before you can start work?

Once we've decided we can work together, I like to have the client fill in a short form I've designed to answer the most important questions regarding the project. For batch orders, priority levels can be assigned to improve delivery times. Over the years I have refined my process, and I'm always available during business hours to discuss projects.

One form is used per design and there are two sections to fill out — one is focused on the brand, and the other provides known details about the project itself. I've found that this is the fastest way to get up-and-running *fast*.

Importantly, there are no contracts to sign unless requested. This was a big decision for me, but in this fast digital world I opted to simplify my service by offering clients 100% of the creative rights over requested design files. Time saved means happier customers!

Once we've agreed on the deliverables per the form, I will request a standard 50% retainer to begin work. Final payment will be due only upon the project’s completion and after any desired revisions.

What do you love most about your job?

I love the freedom to set my own schedule. This allows me to get lost in my work. Although time is an important factor, quality always comes first.

Nothing beats completing work that you know you put your back into.

What inspired you to start your own business?

For me it's about the freedom not to have a boss, or an office to march off to in the morning. (Although that's not so common these days!) I think I produce my best results when I'm able to get lost in my work. For that, I need a safe, quiet space to work.

Running my own business gives me more non-design related tasks, but I love being able set my own plan for the day.

Why should our clients choose you?

I don't think there's anything I can say here that I'd want to convince clients on. Design is merit-based in my mind, so I invite people to judge me on my work rather than what I write here!

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

I can provide my services remotely, and I'm very flexible to cater for most needs.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I've actually had a home office since 2015, so by the time the pandemic hit I'd already established my routine at home to get things done. The vast majority of my work has always been remote.

Graphic Design FAQs

Expand all

Having fantastic visual design can really change how your audience (or customers) view you. In fact, great graphic design goes way past just making things look good. As well as a strong visual impression, brilliant graphic design enables you to amplify your efforts and get your message across in a way that will make people take notice.

Making the correct first impression is vital. With great design principles, you can create an image of your company that stays in the mind of your audiences. Add to this a consistency across all of your materials, and you will quickly be able to build trust in your brand. As well as communicating with your audience visually, you’ll be able to convey your values. Things like having a well-defined logo can be the first step towards perfect brand recognition.

It is well known that we are very visual creatures. Having the right content, designed in the right way, can really encourage your audience to learn more about your business. Being able to express ideas visually can also help to break down complex content that can be difficult to get across with words alone. This combination of benefits allows you to build a great relationship with your audience over time. This can transform into growth for your brand or increased revenue (depending on your goals).

When it comes to choosing your graphic designer, make sure you are clear as possible about what you expect from them. It’s best to write a detailed brief with background, details and timelines on your project. Giving them the relevant background information will attract the best talent possible for your brief.

Make sure to share details about your company, what you wish to achieve and any qualifications you think are necessary for the role. Explain any deadlines and things they may have to work around to make sure their understanding of the job is as comprehensive as possible.

It can also help if you understand a little bit about design yourself. Without going into too much detail, you can research what skills you would need for a particular job. After getting your head around some fundamental concepts, you can ask your candidate some questions to see how they respond.

This could be about past work they’ve done, or it could be about something you are wishing to create from scratch. This will give you a good idea of how they come up with solutions. You may even assign a trial project to complete – as long as this trial is paid for.

Talking to your potential designer on the phone is also useful. This way you can get a great understanding of how you will communicate together and whether you see eye to eye. Be sure to ask your candidate what they will need from you as well. This will help your project to go smoothly and result in the best possible outcome.

The different kinds of graphic design and their complexity will greatly affect how much you can expect to pay. Graphic designers create a huge array of content – from posters and flyers to websites and logos. Some of these graphics are used for film or TV, while others find placement within ads. Graphic designers mix both skill and creativity, while also being able to communicate with clients in an effective manner.

In a word, yes! Graphic design can be carried out remotely, so as long as you're able to discuss the brief with your expert over the phone or via video chat, then you're good to go.
