LAYING THE FOUNDATION
Our invoices are based on the value we invest in a project. We always provide a detailed estimate for approval before starting a project. We adhere to our quotes unless project specifications change.
After being assigned a project, we first schedule an information-gathering session - the brief. It will help you sharpen your focus and objectives, and it will help us ensure that what we produce is creatively excellent and strategically targeted.
KunsHuis needs to schedule workflow in a businesslike fashion, and we ASK you to respect this and discuss all necessary work in time. KunsHuis understands that there are exceptions to the rule and some unforeseen jobs. We are striving for balance in workflow 80% of the time.
During a project, we keep you informed of our progress. Activities that will affect the schedule or budget will be notified in writing. Our goal is to keep things moving ahead quickly, smoothly, and cost-effectively and ensure that we'll produce what you hired us to do.
Graphic Design takes time. Despite popular misconceptions, good creative work doesn't often come in a flash of inspiration; usually, it comes from lots of trial and error. This process is why we also need to take the time to consider several approaches (concepts). Communicating deadlines is crucial!
Adds sparkle to your creative game!
The KunsHuis Newsletter is where we become pen pals to inform and inspire creativity into actionable steps, inspiration and impact.
I desire that you enjoy your creative talents in creation and business.
