I recommend you meet more than one designer face to face or online meetings, before hiring a designer!

My design philosophy and approach are to meet with clients to provide the best solutions and options for them to decide on through their project development. (Preliminary design stage) Where I listen to the client, make suggestions, and listen to their thoughts and desires. I often describe it as I put all their thoughts and desires into a blender, turn it on and pour it out, and adjust to their desires to present to them. At our second meeting we will talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly. We make minor adjustments and tweaks, and or we totally place it back in the blender with more input. We move forward to Construction documents once they approve the design. At that point the customer is still giving input along the way and answering any questions to get the detail level and accuracy of their project in the construction documents.

I look forward to working with you personally.
