I only take on one client at a time because I want to focus completely on one design project at a time. Depending on which package you choose, it takes me about 3-4 weeks to complete a design project. Below is my design project timeframe for each package.
*Note: I only work Monday- Friday. These times don’t include the weekend.
Complete Design Project timeframe for the Brand x Web Design Package
Logos and variations
On days 1-6, I focus on the creative brief and designing the logo. Once the client and I are in agreement on the direction of the project, I start designing the logo. After going through 2 rounds of revisions, the main logo is created. Then, if needed, I will start creating the variation logo and submark.
Brand Board and Collateral Items
On days 7-10, I focus on creating the brand board and 4 collateral items. The brand board basically showcases all the elements of the brand. Once that is approved, I can start working on the 4 collateral items the client chose at the beginning of the project.
On days 11-17, I start creating the wireframes for the website. Once the client chooses a design, I create a prototype of what the homepage will look like based on the wireframe. When the client approves of the prototype, I start designing the website.
Day 18 is the final meeting. I will send all the files to the client via Google Drive and go over how to use the website.

Complete Design Project timeframe for the Logo x Branding Package
This package looks almost identical to the Brand x Web Design package except there’s only one revision for the logo instead of 2. There are only 3 options of collateral items instead of the 4 that you get with the Brand x Web Design package. Since there is less in this package, it only takes about 11 days.
Complete Design Project timeframe for the Web Design Package
Days 1-2 are spent defining the creating brief and creating wireframes.
After the wireframe is chosen, days 3-4 are spent perfecting the prototype for the homepage.
Finally, the website is created between days 5-10. The final file is delivered on day 11.
If you go to each page, you’ll notice that I have a timeline of 4 weeks to complete the design project for the Brand x Web Design package and 3 weeks for the Web Design and Logo x Branding package each. I do that to account for days when the client can’t get back to me right away about revisions.
