Announcement   Hello and welcome to my store! If you are seeking a boutique (individualized) approach vs. the buffet (unlimited clip-art revisions) approach you’ve arrived to the right place.

As a classically trained fine artist I bring a unique perspective and skill to your design requests not otherwise found here on Etsy. I was fortunate to have had an artist as a father and began teaching in his Bay Area art school at 14 (www.poletopoleconsulting.com/fine_art_illustration_5.html) (www.sandrabusta.com). Design and marketing had always been a passion which then led me to pursue two Bachelor of Arts degrees in Graphic/Web Design and Fine Art.

I opened my shop here on Etsy because I absolutely love working one-on-one with clients. While I cannot offer unrealistic promises of unlimited revisions or two-day turn-arounds (I do not have a secret team of under-skilled designers cranking out template designs for me), I can offer incomparable designs that highlight a fine art background and graphic/web design technique exclusive to me and my skillset.

The same passion and drive I brought to teaching I bring to each and every client and my business. I run a boutique firm providing expert level development and design services. My years of experience allowed me to eventually branch out and establish a customer model where I can work individually with clients who are interested like me in quality, not quantity.

About

Artist, Web Designer and Graphic Designer All in One :)

My entrance into the art and design world began at the early age of 5 at my father’s Bay Area art school. It was there that I honed my skills and later transitioned into teaching at 14. For most of my 20’s I taught privately at my father’s school while also having studied graphic and web design in college. I slowly developed a network of private buyers and interested parties and subsequently launched my boutique development and design firm with my husband Peter (www.poletopoleconsulting.com)

As I mentioned earlier I love Etsy because it has opened up a whole new world of really great people to work with. My interactions on this site with clientele have been wonderful - down-to-earth, smart, driven people with fantastic ideas and innovative projects. As an artist accustomed to working one-on-one with students I really thrive in this environment as my clientele tend to be those people who are serious about what they want their designs to communicate and most of all, passionate about their projects.

My Process:

I use the latest versions of professional Adobe software on my Macintosh utilizing vector graphics (guarantees your designs remain crisp and at the best resolution). I also typically will draw and at times paint to arrive at another perspective of the design. During the process I remain in constant contact with you via email and over the phone.

Above all this process is about you and integrating your vision. Creating a comfortable and constructive working relationship is my principal goal.

Myth of Unlimited Revisions:

I am amazed to see some of the designers on Etsy promising concepts like “unlimited revisions.” This is odd in the design world for two reasons:

1) It is physically impossible unless there is a team of designers working on the one project. This is dangerous. Unlimited sounds great but once you bring in more than one designer you lose the creative vision.

2) If your designer promising unlimited revisions is charging you $100 for example, and your revisions are approaching 10-15, imagine what the designer then needs to pay out of that $100 to his/her team. These “designers” are not making much money and if they are not charging competitive rates it is typically because they are not quality designers. Again, like any other industry, you pay for what you get and unlimited revisions is a tricky sales technique that ends up costing you more in the end.

As an artist and a designer (and my client feedback speaks to this) I do not need more than three revisions to deliver a final product. This is because a good designer knows the preliminary questions to ask, has identified the target market, and understands the business philosophy. These concepts are the crux to good design. Unlimited designs = limited knowledge of you and what your design is trying to achieve.

Shop policies

Last updated on August 10, 2011
I offer quality graphic design, fine art and corporate branding services. Design requests typically fall into one of two categories: print marketing and web sites. However I am open to any and all design requests so please feel free to call or email me about your project. I love a new challenge!

Print Marketing

This includes logos, brochures, business cards, letterhead, postcards, and basically anything that is not a website. The client receives:

- 3 revisions on the selected concept

*You can review my client feedback as I do not need more than 3 revisions to arrive at your ideal deliverable.

Web Sites

Web site requests vary but I work on a per page basis and offer 1 revision per page. The reason I cannot offer more than 1 is web design is quite technical and very time consuming. However, as I noted above, per my client feedback, I do not need more than 1 revision to arrive at an excellent finished product.

Accepted payment methods

  • Other Method
Payment
All payments are received via paypal.com
Shipping
I send files over the internet for print and for the web so there are no shipping costs. It is instant and easy.
Refunds and Exchanges
When designing each process builds on the previous one so if we are not communicating regularly and on the same page regarding the final delivery, confusion can ensue.

An entire full refund cannot be honored unless requested prior to receiving the initial concepts. This is due principally to the time invested on my part. With both logos and websites you have ample opportunity to request changes as part of the packages I offer, so if you are not happy with the initial concepts you have the freedom to communicate what you do not like, and I will make the requisite changes.

If I do not hear back from you within one month after delivering any deliverables within the logo or website packages I offer, I will assume you are fine with the designs to date.

These shop policies thankfully rarely come into play as I have had some fantastic working relationships here on Etsy. I look forward to the same with you.
