It seems like yesterday that I was a young designer ready to work for anyone who would hire me. I realized after a few years that I would be happiest working for myself and raising my family with a more flexible schedule.

My design rate is $75 per hour. I bill hourly and invoice monthly. I track my time using Timefox software. I am able to work on projects on a set bid if the project details have been established. However, time is tracked for every job to stay within budget.
I have found for most of my projects, working hourly is the best way to keep projects moving. I do not charge rush rates, and take jobs as they come. I create an estimate and communicate timing when we begin, and am often able to start a job the same week it arrives.
Trained formally as a print designer, I will admit that print is where my heart is. But today most of my client projects have digital elements, or are designed for the web. For hardware, I am all Apple.
I generally do all of my design work in the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite: In Design, Illustrator, Photoshop & Acrobat
Some projects require using MS Office, so I’m fairly proficient in Word, PowerPoint, Excel
I also have a working knowledge of the WordPress web platform and basic HTML.
