How long does the design process take?
Please contact me as soon as you know I’m the designer for you so I can schedule you in my design queue, as I am normally booked 4-6 weeks in advance.
Each project is custom created for you, so creation time will vary. Typically, logo concepts will be ready within 2 weeks of your project start date. A la carte items typically take 1 to 2 weeks per piece. Once concepts are delivered, I rely on you as we enter the revision process, so much of the project speed depends on how quickly you can review and send feedback.
What is the difference between a “concept” and a “revision”?
A concept is a whole new logo idea. A revision is a change made to your logo concept with regards to color, size, font or building upon the concept at hand. All unselected concepts remain the property of Taslim Sidi/ Designs by Taz and it is strictly prohibited to use or copy any unselected concepts presented to you.
How is my final logo sent?
Once the logo is completely final, I finish creating your artwork to send by email. I provide vector artwork and a Photoshop file. (Vector files can be scaled to any size without losing quality – think banners & signs). If you need something specific, file types I’m happy to provide are: .eps .psd .ai .jpg .gif .png .tiff
If you are commissioning branding pieces as well, those files will be sent separately either in a layered .psd format or as vector artwork depending on your printer’s specifications on a as-completed basis. If you have any special requirements, let me know so I can accommodate you.
What if I don’t like any of my logo concepts?
While I don’t anticipate this happening, if for some reason, I did not match your chosen style in any of the four initial concepts, I will provide two additional logo concepts. If it is clear after these additional concepts that our design relationship is not a good fit, your project will be terminated. All unselected concepts remain the property of Taslim Sidi/ Designs by Taz and it is strictly prohibited to use or copy any concepts presented to you. Due to the custom nature of these designs, absolutely no refunds will be given once the work has begun.
What do you need from me in order to get started?
Please contact me as soon as you know I’m the designer for you so I can schedule you in my design queue. Once we’ve scheduled your project I’ll direct you towards my design questionnaire where you can provide me with your project vision. Full payment is due before any work will begin.
What method of payment do you accept?
I bill via PayPal where acceptable methods of payment are Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Discover and E check. If paying by E check, payment must clear before any work will begin. If you wish to pay via credit card over the phone, call the studio at 617 694 8706.
Where should I have my final pieces printed?
There are many print houses to choose from these days, so pick one that fits your needs the best. If you are looking for some direction, I recommend PrintPlace for general printing and Taste of Ink Studios for specialty business card printing (letterpress or plastic cards). For 5×5 trifolds and small runs, I recommend using the press printing services available at your lab. If you are choosing an alternate printer, be sure to let me know so I can create your items to meet their printing requirements.
