Hi there, you’ve landed on this page because you’re possibly enquiring from an agency for freelance work.
To avoid going back and forth with emails around my availability, pricing and what I do, I thought I’d list it out here so you can see whether this suits before getting in contact.
I mostly work with clients directly, however I have previously worked with Agencies. In my experience they don’t seem to work. I’ve had agencies who stopped replying to me after failing to pay an invoice. Agencies that quote a fixed price for a job then demand I speak to clients directly without charging for meetings with either them or the client.
Sometimes the agencies I’ve worked with don’t understand the product they’re selling, which makes my job of delivering something much harder. I work off a set brief which I’m assuming you have done many times before. I can’t possibly know what you don’t know, so if you’re not sure about the product or what I’m delivering, please ask.
How much do I charge?
I charge $105 p/hr NZD, or quote a fixed price. I am registered as a company in New Zealand under ‘Richardson Creative Ltd’ and will add GST (in NZ) or without (every other country).
What do I do?
My passion is design – user interface and user experience. Designing and building them (I’m a front end developer but can work my way around WordPress easily – so I often build those from scratch.
I can also do things like email signatures, print documents, reviewing your WordPress site for malware issues, be your company’s WordPress maintenance person, research UX issues using tools like Google Analytics, CrazyEgg, run remotely usability tests. Again, most of the time I work on UI/UX of websites and apps.
How do I work?
I typically set up a call with you to go over the brief. Once I do that, I create a project in Asana and run through a process to research, define, design and then build your solution. I’m very strict about deadlines, so although I don’t reply to emails instantly, I WILL get your project done on time.
I also don’t do video calls to explain something. The written word does a great job of communicating a brief, a problem and is a great way to take notes, so unless I’m showing you a concept or walking you through a build (screenshare) I don’t tend to book those kind of meetings.
After reading all of the above and you’re still interested in working with me, then that’s GREAT!
