Hi, I‘m Jessica Bell

 

I began my career as a graphic designer when I self-published my first book as an author, a poetry collection called TWISTED VELVET CHAINS, back in 2011. I continued designing covers for author friends for fun, until one of my friends told me I had talent, and that I should start a business.

HOW I GET JIGGY WIT IT

1 1
BOOKING

Email me and tell me your design desires. I’ll pencil in your booking and send you a project agreement. To see a sample, CLICK HERE. To lock in your booking, I’ll send you an invoice for 50% of the total fee. This deposit will need to be paid within 48 hours. You can pay via PayPal, credit/debit card, or bank transfer. After 48 hours, another client has the opportunity to snap up your slot.

DESIGN

I’ll send you my client questionnaire which will ask you a bunch of questions that will fully brief me about your project. I will ask you things related to era, setting, character, subjects and themes, symbols, and your own vision. Make sure you answer the questions and send them back to me before your start date. If I don’t have the answers to the questionnaire, I can’t start your project.

3 3
SAMPLING

On your agreed start date, I’ll begin working on your project. The process of designing your samples can vary depending on your needs and the complexity of the project. I may bother you with questions if I need more information than what is in the questionnaire. Expect to see sample designs using low resolution and water-marked images in your inbox within approximately two weeks.

4 4
FINALIZING

Like what you see? Awesome. I’ll finish up your design using the high-resolution versions of your images and send you your final files. Need some changes? Sure thing. Tell me what needs tweaking and I’ll tweak it. But if I don’t agree, I will explain why and try to convince you why I’m right. Don’t like what you see? No problem. We’ll discuss the project further and work on it until you’re happy.
