The following is a question and answer session with principal designer Christi Bunn:
What types of customers have you worked with?
I create websites that are uniquely designed and customized for each client. I incorporate the latest in social media, blogging, and networking, depending on my client’s needs, to give a significant web presence. I love meeting with my clients in order to get to know them and their needs, but I have also designed websites for those I have never met. I have created sites for all ranges of business… from start-up small businesses to non-profits to established companies.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I will send an initial email with a lot of questions, in order to know how to begin the design process. If it is for a website, I will typically send a questionnaire that will give me the information I need about exactly what the customer wants. Then I can better know how to quote the final design.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Advertising and Graphic Design, with over 17 years in the website design and graphic design industry. I use Adobe products (Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign) for graphic design and both html code along with WordPress for custom website design.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service?
Each website build and graphic design piece is so different that I cannot do a “one price fits all” variety of pricing. However, my clients find me to be very affordable and it is typical to hear from them that they feel they get more from me than they have paid for.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have always had a love for art and design, so my penchant for working with shapes and colors comes naturally. About 17 years ago, I was given the challenge of building a website for a new energy business, and my web design career was launched.
Describe a recent project you are fond of and how long it took to complete:
I absolutely love the creative process and really enjoy logo design. I have just finished a logo design for a client that took less than a week, and starting with several speculative designs we honed and refined the one(s) she liked until we had the finished product.
What questions should you ask yourself before submitting a project to Bunn Media:
As far as graphic or logo design: How do I want to present myself or my project to the world? What is the best way to represent my brand?
As for website design: What are the essentials I need from a website? What am I trying to communicate to a potential customer? Do I want to integrate social media? How much will I need to be involved in any website updates? Will I need regular (weekly, monthly, bi-monthly) updates or will this be a static site?
