How do I start a project?
It’s super easy! Just fill out the form on my Work With Me page. If an open slot is available, I will send you a design brief within 24 hours. Complete the design brief & tell us all about yourself and your vision. Don’t stress if the design brief seems overwhelming. I will schedule a 15-minute consultation to gather details to create a foundation that provides a clear direction for your brand.
How should I submit content?
All materials (text, images, logos, information, media, etc.) are required BEFORE your project can begin.
ELECTRONIC FILES MAY BE DELIVERED IN THE FOLLOWING FORMAT:
EMAIL, WORD DOCUMENTS, TXT, PDF, JPG, GIF, TIF
To ensure that all images are reflected in the sharpest manner, images must be sent in high resolution (minimum 300 dpi). Images that are not sent in high resolution will result in poor print quality. The Gorham Agency will not be held responsible and reserves the right to decline projects due to poor quality images. All text supplied must be typed. (DOC, TXT, or Email). There will be a $100 fee for text that must be typed by The Gorham Agency. If a particular image is desired, but no high-resolution image has been supplied by the client, a $100 fee that will be added. Hard copies will be returned ONLY when accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope.
