Teri did a great job overhauling my law firm's old website. She updated the look, had useful suggestions to update the content, and proposed ideas to make it more user friendly. The number of inquiries from potential clients that I can directly trace to my website has increased. She has also been instrumental in helping me identify and target new sources of potential clients. I'm very pleased with her work, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, thoughtful, and engaged designer!

What`s your favorite development language and why?

PHP. We frequently develop very customized HTML / CMS WordPress websites and train the client in content management, so they can DIY. This delivers a stable well-supported website and a client can manage easily. I also do awesome customization of online templates for clients with very tight budgets.


If you could only use one language, which one would it be?

HTML


What is your standard hourly rate?

55


Who is your typical client at the moment and what types of projects are you working on?

My business is focused on small/mid size clients. I recently completed a website for a specialized law practice and am starting a new website for a lawyer group that provides diverse services. Also starting a website which includes an extensive member database and MANY forms.


What advice would you give a client in order to prepare for a new project?

Most important is your contract with a designer or developer. The majority of my clients have experienced problems because they did not know how to contract for services. They come to me to design it, build it, fix it or to redo everything because I will not disappear on them, I DO answer my phone. My contract clearly states all terms and clients OWN the domain name, design and code of custom sites - - that is not true with many designers/developers.


How long have you been with your company?

I own MC2 Marketing & On Fire Websites. I have been full time in this consulting/designing role since 2004, but also operated for several years prior to that.


What web browser do you use?

I use Chrome, IE, Firefox and Opera to ensure my clients' websites and digital marketing are effectively presented.


What social media do you use for work and play? Do you have a favorite?

My personal favorite is Facebook, but many of my clients hire me to integrate their marketing with social media. Depending on the client's product/service, geographic selling range, brand, and personal style, I tailor their social media marketing to best fit their business needs. I also tutor clients in managing and succeeding in social media.


What is your favorite thing about the type of work you do?

I enjoy most business "starter packages." That would be developing their brand, identity, logo, website, basic social media, and whatever support marketing is appropriate - - usually it includes a couples ads or a brochure. I love helping them launch a new business or expanding their current market share.


What is the most common problem you deal with when working with new clients who do not have much experience with working with designers?

As professionals, it is our responsibility to train our clients in contracting with us. Helping them understand what factors are critical, such as: site plan, how many design drafts are included, how many revisions are included, quote on page volume, who supplies content, what is the photo budget, etc. I don't see this as a problem - - just part of the job. The problem I most often encounter is that many people think they can provide content, but they are not writers or marketers. Content is king and it should be professionally developed.


Do you have a minimum budget for a new client?

No, I do not have a minimum budget. My rate varies on the project. Graphic design, website design/development and social media development is all the same rate, but I do give some "package" discounts when clients chose to do a menu of services. Full branding and marketing strategy support needs to be quoted.


Are you self taught or did you attend school for your industry?

I have a bachelor's degree from UCLA in Design. What they did not teach, I learned from mentors and on my own.


Please tell us a bit about your background. How did you get started in design?

I have been a graphic designer my entire career, even while holding marketing management positions in Fortune 500 companies. I now focus my business on graphic and web design - my true passions. My unique background mix of marketing strategist and designer is a tremendous advantage for my clients. I bring more expertise and experience to each project than a traditional graphic designer or web developer.
