If you’re thinking, “oh shit did I make the right decision?” I ask you to consider, what would Beyonce say…

“Don’t doubt yourself, trust me you need me”

You’re in good hands, and I am super excited about working with you!

Project Management

When you're booked in my schedule, we'll stop using email to have our conversation and we'll start using my project management tool, Asana.

A project management tool is a secure space online where we have have conversations, share files, set reminders, and create to-do lists.

Whereas files often get lost when I'm managing projects through email, nothing gets lost or forgotten in Asana. It's the simplest way to keep your project organized and make sure it goes as smoothly as possible!

Don't worry - you won't need to pay for this tool and it's not hard to use. Click the button below to watch a 2-minute tutorial on how to use it!

Here’s what I need from you before your project begins…

1. Create a Pinterest board. On Pinterest, create and fill a public board with inspiration for your brand. If you get stuck, feel free to pin from my design boards.

Send me the link to your board when you're done so I can see it!

2. Fill out your Design Questionnaire, which is attached to your welcome email in HoneyBook. Your questionnaire helps me understand your goals and needs, and enables me to create something you'll love!

3. Upload your website content to Asana. I need you to upload your website copy & photography (if your project does not include photography) to Asana at least 1 week before your project starts. 

Feedback Guidelines

I really appreciate simple and straightforward feedback. It helps me clearly understand your thoughts and make the right changes to your designs.

Here are a few tips on providing awesome feedback:

  • Try and use bullet points to break up your feedback.

  • Use headers to organize your feedback.

  • Read over your feedback to make sure it's clear and check that you've answered any questions I may have asked.

  • Post your feedback as a comment on the relevant Asana discussion instead of emailing me directly. Back and forth emails can get tiring but communicating in Asana is a breeze!

  • If you have team members that would like to add their feedback, I kindly ask that you gather the feedback into one message. This stops everyone from getting confused and keeps the project organized. 

 

Timelines

To help keep your project on track to finishing on time, please provide feedback on your designs within two business days of receiving them. 

I really appreciate your effort to provide files and feedback on time! Timeliness from both of us will help us get your project done on (or even before!) the deadline so you can move on to the next exciting task on your to-do list and I can cheer you on.
