My Step by Step Design Process
Free consultation. After you've read through this page, you can schedule a free design consultation. You'll be able to ask me any questions you have and I can learn a little more about your project.
Pay your deposit. Once we've talked and you've decided you want to move forward, you'll need to pay a 50% downpayment to secure your spot in my schedule. The final 50% is due when the project is finished but before the final files are handed over.
Sign my agreement. We'll both need to sign my service agreement so that we're fully protected before we begin working together.
Project management. I'll add you to my project management system, Asana. This is where we'll communicate and keep all your files and feedback. Don't worry - I'll provide you with a video tutorial on how to use it!
Homework. You'll need to fill a secret Pinterest board with inspiration images, and answer an in-depth questionnaire to identify brand fundamentals, personality, audience, positioning, competition and functionality.
You'll also need to upload all website content (text and images) to Asana.
Consult call. About one weeks before your project begins, we can do another 30 minute Skype or phone call for any last-minute questions you may have!
Moodboard. I'll start the design process by creating a moodboard incl. a tentative color palette that visualizes your brand aesthetics and feel.
Logo design & color palette. Using the information you provided in your homework and the moodboard, I'll show you two main logo concepts. You'll choose the one you like best, and then I'll refine the primary logo as well as the secondary logo, submark and color palette over two revision rounds.
Brand Style Guide. Once your logo design is completed, I create a full brand style guide which includes the main logo, alternate logo, submark, brand inspiration images, color palette, font combinations, brand elements and pattern recommendations. A brand style guide is like your personal guide on how to use your new branding. Click here to get a good understanding of what each brand element is for. (1 round of revision)
Social Media Profile Image. I design a social media profile image which you can use for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. (1 round of revision)
Collateral design. You can select 2 stationary designs for your brand (additional ones can be purchased)
• Business Card Design
• Letterhead Design
• Thank You Card Design
• Note Card Design
• Facebook + Instagram + Twitter Banner Design
• Business Stickers or Stamp Design
• Pricing Guide Design
FOR EACH DESIGN I ALLOW FOR 1 ROUND OF REVISION.
I set up a trial Squarespace page which will then be upgraded by you at a later stage (buying of the domain name and getting a plan with Squarespace is not included).
I will start by designing the home page. (3 rounds of revisions are included)
Once the home page is agreed upon I will design the remaining 5 pages (eg: Services, About, Blog, Contact, FAQ)
(1 round of revision for each page is included)
Final payment. Before I hand over your final files and website, you'll need to complete your final payment. I'll then send you your final brand files (jpeg, png, pdf, ai and eps format) via WeTransfer and I'll hand your website over. You'll also receive access to my client area where you'll find Squarespace tutorials and advice to help you maintain your website.
Website walkthrough. We will meet in person or over skype to have a joint website walkthrough + a 30 minute tutorial.
• Some of these steps may not apply. It depends on whether your package includes them.

What my clients say..
It was so overwhelming having to deal with marketing tools when I started my business. I needed someone to understand my needs and suit my taste to take over marketing from logo design to website set-up. MNFL design provided me with exactly that. Emilia was always a step ahead of me making me feel that she knew what I needed for my business better than I did. She listened to me carefully and gave me design options that matched my vision. She was always there to assist me with Facebook ads and brochure design and she was fast and effective. That's a hard thing to find. I know that my collaboration with Emilia will be a long lasting and happy one. I can't recommend her enough! Thank you. You are a big part of my success!
Stella from www.bohemiangreek.com
Emilia helped me with re-branding my company and was quick and efficient. She had a sense of detail from a design perspective that we lacked. She also did our website from scratch as well as promotional materials, business cards and the basis of working materials. She went above and beyond my expectation and would be honest about ideas.
Emilia will be my "go to" when I need help within the design field again!
Annika from www.vapc.me
We needed a brand and website that would reflect the core purpose of our business. Emilia came highly recommended as a professional brand and website designer that was supportive, straight forward and who delivered on time. Once I met her, I knew that she was the right fit for my business. She is creative yet always focused on what our clients would be looking for. The result is a new brand and website that has had phenomenal response and feedback. We look forward to growing our market share in the Middle East and Europe with her designs that perfectly reflects our business purpose. Thank you Emilia

BENEFITS OF WORKING WITH ME INCLUDE
Your project won’t be juggled around between designers.
You will be working with me only.
Your logo won’t be outsourced.
You will receive quality over quantity service and prompt one-on-one communication throughout the project.
And as I am German you can rely on my punctuality ;-)
how does payment work?
Once we've talked and you've decided you want to move forward, you'll need to pay a 50% non-refundable deposit to secure your spot in my schedule. The final 50% is due when the project is complete but before the final files are handed over.
Do you also offer other services besides branding and webdesign? Yes, of course, I can do all sorts of graphic designs for your business. Just send me some more details of what your are looking for and I will get back to you with a custom quote.
What platform will you build my website on? I'll use Squarespace to build your site. It's easy, fun and simple for you to use on your own when the design process is finished. I love the minimal look and easy use of Squarespace and it is easy to maintain for you. You can find more about my reasons in this blog post.
What is Squarespace? Squarespace is an all-in-one-platform for website building, blogging, hosting service, e-commerce and a domain name registrar.
Which programs do you use to design? I use mainly Adobe Illustrator and sometimes InDesign and Photoshop.
Which files will I get? I will send you all brand files as a jpeg, png, pdf as well as the original eps file.
What are your working hours? I am freelancing so I can be flexible and so are my office hours. However I answer emails between 9-10am, Sunday to Thursday.
Are you booking new clients? Yes, I am currently booking for January 2018.
How long does the design process take? For branding and website design it takes about 4 weeks to complete. As I only take on a liminted number of clients each quarter, you will have my full attention during this time. However it is crucial that you complete your homework on time and have all website copy and images ready before we start the project.
Do you also write the text and source the pictures for my website? You can either do this yourself as part of your homework before we start the project or I have partnered up with an experienced copywriter and a photographer who can take this worry off your shoulders.
What happens after the consultation?
If you decide you want to work with me, you'll pay a non-refundable 50% deposit to secure your spot in my schedule and you'll need to sign my contract. After that's done, I'll get you booked into my project management tool and you can start your homework :-)
I am looking forward to hearing from you!
