Evaluation

Initially we will typically communicate with the client through email or the phone (we can meet in person if needed)

Quote

After you have communicated all your graphic design needs, a Project Proposal will be written up. The Proposal will need to be signed and dated by the client and Matson Graphics, and either mailed, faxed or emailed back to the Matson Graphics offices.

1/2 Down Payment

At this stage we request that a 50% deposit is paid to Matson Graphics to start all jobs. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit cards (via paypal).

Rough Drafts

Once the 1/2 down payment is received, your Design Concepts will be started. Typically Matson Graphics creates 1-3 design sample roughs for the client to choose from, depending on the job. These sample designs are typically emailed to the client for review.

Changes to the Rough Drafts (if needed)

At the revisions stage the client typically has the choice of making up to three separate revisions (changes) to the “one” favorite sample rough draft concept out of the three that were emailed to the client.

Final Design

After the final revisions are made, and the client gives the “ok”, Matson Graphics will then prep the art files so they are ready for print, web, etc., and burn the final art to disc.

Release of the balance/artwork

Once the final payment is received, Matson Graphics will release all final approved artwork on disc or via email to the client
(Websites will go live at this stage).

What to consider when choosing a graphic designer:

 

  • Find out the hourly charge ($35 Print / $55 Web).
  • Find out the turn around time for the project.
  • Ask what type of art files you are entitled to when the project is completed.
  • Always request an invoice or a receipt. Make sure to fill out a signed written agreement before the job starts.

 

Be sure to ask the designer’s opinion. Graphic Designers work with hundreds of clients each year and can sometimes have great insight for you and your final projects outcome. This is also a good way to get the most out of your graphic artist.
