Design Questionnaire

When we start our project, I'll send you a personalized questionnaire with everything I need to know about your project. But if you want to get started thinking about answers, the questions will probably include some of the following:

What should this project accomplish?

Are you making a sale, building a community, educating your clients? What’s your purpose?

Do you have a logo or branding guidelines this project should adhere to?

If you're not a new business just getting started, this is probably the case. Most companies have a branding guide with color codes, fonts, and other specifics that we'll need to follow for this project.

Where will you be getting this printed and what what are the print specifications?

This includes things like page size, margins, bleed, and so on. For more information, check out my page on design terminology

Do you need help supplying content?

Typically my clients come to me with prewritten copy and sometimes even images. If you need content, I charge an hourly rate outside of the cost of the design.

If this is a redesign, is the content changing or just the design?

Quite frequently in a website redesign, only the look is changing, but if the content is changing as well, let me know! It might change what we're able to do with the site architecture.

What do you dislike about the old design? What, if anything, would you like to keep?

Some designs just need a tiny tweak and sometimes people are ready for a fresh start.

Are there any [logos/websites/etc] that you like, and what do you like about them?

This helps me gauge what styles you like and what your intent is for the project.

Do you have any colors that you love or colors that you hate?

I'm not necessarily going to stick to your favorite colors, BUT if they work with your messaging and your target market, then I'll try to work it in. And avoiding colors you hate is just good sense. It's your logo and you'll have to look at it more than anyone else!

What is your ideal timeline?

I can't always do rush jobs, but let me know what your optimal deadline would be and we'll see what we can do.

Do you have any special requests or is there anything else you want me to know?

If you have a vision in your head of exactly what you want, let me know! I can come up with hundreds of options that are different from what you're thinking of, so if you have an idea let's collaborate and get exactly what you want.
