Design management

You have a great logo and some brand guidelines and maybe even a website, but you always fall behind schedule when it comes to having designs created and up to date.

You need someone who can plan, organise, create your designs and most importantly chase you up so that your to-do list won't keep you up at night. You kind of wish you had someone in house to do these things for you, but then again you don't want the long term commitment. 

This plan is perfect for those who want all visual communication taken care of and organized so they don't have to lose sleep over it.

I start this process by meeting with you, listening to what your business is about and what needs you may have in terms of visual communication. 

I then put together a list of what you need to be organized and ahead of the curve. This list includes general deliverables like business cards, a general brochure, maintenance of a website and more context specific items such a pop up stand for an event or a brand design for a single product. 

Once we are agreed on your plan, you can sit back and relax! The forward planning and creation of the various visual communication elements is in my hands and I will be the one keeping track of things and chasing you up for copy or feedback at the right time. 

This service requires a 6 month minimum commitment and is  charged as a monthly fee.

Translation Services

English-French & French-English

Squarespace square images A14.jpg

 

Recently I have been asked by more and more clients to do some translation work for them. In Quebec in particular and in Canada in general, everyone knows how important it is to have a presence in both languages. The reality is that not every bilingual speaker has the ability to write well in both languages. As I am perfectly bilingual in French and English (you wouldn't know which one is or isn't my mother tongue), it isn't suprpising that clients and acquaintances have started asking me to do more and more translation work. And as it turns out, I really enjoy it too! 

Please note that I am not a certified translator. My ability to translate comes from working in the marketing field in both languages for several years as well as being a perfectly fluent speaker. I haven't excluded the idea of training as a translator one day soon though! But in the meantime I have experience translating marketing documents for a variety of organisations including filmmakers, non for profits and start-ups. 

I charge $65/h for my translation services or can give a project estimate upon request.
