Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re ready to start your project, just fill out the contact form. Don’t hold back on the details—the more you share about your vision, the better. Feel free to include sketches, preferred colors, or even logos from competitors that catch your eye. This helps me get a clear picture of what you’re looking for right away.

I’ll get back to you within 24 hours to discuss your project more. After we agree on the creative direction, I will send a PayPal invoice via email for the payment. The design process starts once your payment is received. Generally, you’ll receive your initial set of logo mockups within 10 weekdays, although the timeline can vary depending on current workload and the design’s complexity.

Need a tweak or two? No problem. Revisions are all part of the process to make sure you’re thrilled with the final logo. If we find ourselves veering into new territory with additional requests, I’ll let you know if there are any extra costs involved.

Finally, once you are satisfied and approve the final logo design, I will issue another PayPal invoice for any remaining balance. Upon final payment, I will deliver the final logo files to you.

A first set of mockups is usually delivered within 10 weekdays. Depending on the current workload and the difficulty of the mockups/design, projects may take less or more time. Typically, a complete logo package is done within weeks. A guaranteed faster turnaround is available, but it will affect the price. Rush fees range from 25% to 50% of the total project price.

Yes, typically I require a 40-60% deposit before starting work on your project. If the project does not exceed $500, full payment may be required prior to beginning the project.

I would more than happy to brainstorm with you and propose a set of ideas for your project.

Absolutely. I can revise your existing logo, provided you have an original vector file (ai or eps format). 
If don’t have an existing vector file, I can recreate your logo in vector format, and then revise it according your vision.
In the end you will end up with revised logo and all the vector files.

It’s highly unlikely that you’ll be dissatisfied with the final product after all the revisions. This is because if a concept appeals to you initially, any revisions will further refine it according to your feedback, enhancing its alignment with your vision. Additionally, I encourage you to review my portfolio thoroughly. If my previous work doesn’t resonate with you, it’s possible that my style may not meet your expectations. This pre-emptive check helps ensure that we’re a good fit for each other from the start.

No, you don’t need to have a PayPal account to pay me. PayPal invoices allow for secure payments online using your credit or debit card without requiring a PayPal account. Additionally, I accept Venmo for convenient and quick transactions. If you prefer, I also accept personal checks and money orders. Please note, however, that opting for checks or money orders may delay the start of the design process, as work begins only after the payment has been received.

Yes, upon completion of the project, you will hold full copyright ownership. According to copyright law, there exists a category termed “works made for hire,” where the employer—rather than the employee or service provider—is recognized as the author. This can apply to firms, organizations, or individuals.

However, as the designer, I retain the right to use the completed project and any preliminary designs for purposes such as design competitions, future design publications, educational purposes, and promoting my business, EvolveRed. Where applicable, you, the client, will be appropriately credited for any use of the project’s elements.

For your final logo, you will receive files in industry-standard formats for both web and print use, specifically AI (Adobe Illustrator), EPS (Encapsulated PostScript), and PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files. The AI and EPS vector formats ensure your logo can be scaled to any size without loss of quality, making them ideal for everything from digital applications to large-scale prints. The PNG format provides a transparent background, perfect for use on websites and in digital media where you need your logo to overlay text or images seamlessly.

Please note, editable templates for other materials like business cards, posters, and flyers are not included as part of the standard logo design package. These are available upon request for an additional fee prior to the start of the project. The AI and EPS files for your logo are fully editable, offering flexibility for future modifications. However, ‘editable templates’ for items such as business cards and posters refer to specially prepared files for those specific uses, and they are provided based on specific agreements and additional payment.

Both. Alternatively, other formats are available for additional charge, such as editable psd files/templates, pdf files, svg files, etc.

A revision refers to a minor modification such as changes to color, layout, placement, font choices, or a small redraw. Should your logo require a more significant redraw, additional charges may apply. In such instances, I will notify you in advance to discuss any extra costs involved.
