Services I Offer
I’m a jack of all trades (and a master of some) but we can group the services provided into 6 categories:
While I’m not a programmer I have more than 10 years of experience using WordPress, the most widely used CMS for small to middle sized websites. I can create nice corporate websites optimized for a good performance.
Jared's Designs is a pioneer in the creation of corporate mascot designs, a niche that I eventually created +10 years ago. Over the years I learnt to find the right balance between usability and aesthetics.
I transitioned from high end illustrative logos fully detailed to a more versatile and simpler approach. This way I can offer high graphic impact logo designs but also vector versions for easy printing on different layouts and mediums.
Because intuitive and clean interfaces can also be nice, I have more than 5 years of experience working in UX/UI projects for Apps. With a focus in gamification.
A good logo can be screwed by a bad designer, I can offer a wide range of graphic design services for the web or print. Banners, business cards, tshirts…
With more than 12 years of experience in illustration services, I can conceptualize an idea from its inception and convert it into a visually stunning work no matter if you use it on games or as corporate collaterals.
I offer a premium custom logo design service and I guarantee full satisfaction.
Revisions will be the necessary in order to achieve the objective set.
My design process is sequential, we’ll do the work in stages - briefing,
conceptualization, sketch and final design - and we’ll make all the revisions you need (within reason), but when one stage is approved, we can’t turn back again.
If this happens I may charge a fee.
If I can’t deliver perfection, I will charge just for the work you approved, so until you approve the preliminary sketch, you are free to ask for a full refund.
Copyright of the brand identity is yours upon receipt of final payment.
Anything I create that is not used in your final design belongs to Jared's Designs, for example, unapproved versions of your final design. Since I offer unlimited revisions (within reason) I try to avoid clients who request extra concepts that will be used for other projects.
My portfolio is my only marketing tool, so otherwise stated, I keep the right to display the outcome of any design order in the Jared's Designs portfolio, blog or social profiles in order to promote my work.
If you need a Non-Disclosure Agreement signed by me, please let me know upfront as this certainly will increase the price of the service.
Art is very personal and requires expert skills, it’s also about style, if you make changes it could lose all consistency.
If after your project is finished you want make any change I suggest you contact me to discuss your new needs, I will do everything on my hand to achieve your new goals at the minimum cost.
The most common and quick payment is PayPal, Cryptocurrency, altough I also accept bank transfer or any other secure payment method like TransferWise.
