Graphics Design Services

"Graphics Design" as a technical art covers everything from;

  • the choice and setup of colors and graphics on your web pages when I build your site,
  • the creation of a logo for a business or product,
  • the layout of a brochure or newsletter so that it looks professional,
  • vector image creation for media use
  • to editing your family photos so they look better and taking out unwanted elements.

Graphics Design is included in my package rates for websites.

Photo Editing work is $30/hr (1/2 hour minimum). This can include scanning, cropping, adjusting lighting, removing elements, changing backgrounds or compiling a montage of various elements.

Logo Design work is $45/hr (1/2 hour minimum) as this includes all the elements of Photo Editing work plus the creative process of conceptualizing the logo.

Printed Materials Layout

Whether you want to put together an emailed or web-based newsletter, a small black-and-white photocopied office newsletter or a 100-page color publication, I can put it together for you and get it to the printer's, ready to email or uploaded to a web location.

This would include assembling text and content, proofreading and editing (if necessary - grammatical not copywriting), layout, working with advertiser's files and/or designing advertiser's ads, editing/scanning graphics for use in the publication, layout of the publication so that it is in a logical sequence and follows current conventions and final preparation so that it is ready to go to the printer's in digital format.

I prefer to work with Microsoft or Adobe products (not Mac) so that there is no problem with inserting Word documents and other components.  I work with printing companies who have experience dealing with this format.

If you wish, I can make the printing arrangement with local printers I am familiar with and recommend, and take it in and get a final print proof approved as well before it goes to press.

I quote on a piece-by-piece basis for promotional materials, after I see a complete description of what is requested and based on my estimate of approximate time it will take me.  This will then factor in whether I need to do photo editing, text writing/editing, create images/logos etc.

Photo Editing

Editing of pictures can include scanning, cropping and manipulating images to remove undesirable elements or to improve the color and image from when it was originally taken.
