Illustrator Gets Cookin’, Adds New Menu Item

May 30, 2018

If you look up at the blog menu here, you’ll see a new item: FAQs.

It’s long overdue.

If you’re a brand offering a service, visitors are going to have questions– and they’ll want easy access to answers.

The new page explains what I do and how I work; i.e., my process, fee structure, what clients can expect. It also includes some client testimonials, how to connect with me on other social media platforms, and some fun facts.

Still needed: a new About Page (the current one is absurd and embarrassing), and a separate page devoted exclusively to Client Testimonials.blank vertical space, 16 pixels high

I’ve copied and pasted the entire FAQs page below.

Please take a look at the questions and answers and let me know what you think. I’d appreciate the feedback– thanks!blank vertical space, 32 pixels high

    Love new menu items! Or maybe that’s because I just love food. 🙂

    Actually, I’ve always liked an FAQ page. It’s an easy way to get to know more about something/someone. It’s interesting to know how someone works! I particularly liked that you included you do turn down jobs when you feel you’re not suited for them – very genuine and honest.

    Just one tiny thing – small typo on the word ‘connection’ under ‘How can people connect with you on social media?’ 🙂

    Really though, I enjoyed reading this FAQ! 😁😊😄

      Hi, Lily! Many, many thanks for your kind comment and the tip about the typo!– which has been corected!– I mean, corrected!! 😊

      Yes, a FAQ page makes life so much simpler for everyone. Who wants to go to all the trouble of rooting out information that should have been readily available? Oh, well– it only took me a few years to see an obvious problem… 😕

      I think many artists make the mistake of taking any and all jobs when they’re first starting out. And it’s understandable– they want work! It’s a mistake to take on jobs that don’t align with our skills or interests, however. Not fair to the client, either. Maybe it’s one of those things one has to learn the hard way…

      Thanks again!– I really appreciate your feedback and your keen eye!! 👍🏆😊

    Thorough & entertaining FAQ page! When you were a bank teller did you have one of those “We’re being robbed” panic buttons? 🙂

      Ha! No we’re-being-robbed panic button, but we did have a gizmo I’ll never forget: it was about the size of one of those cute little one-serving boxes of cereal you buy in a ten-pack. It was down on the floor by our feet. When a customer ran out of room in their savings pass book, we’d have to issue them a new one, and cancel and return the old one. How did we cancel the old one? By stooping down, inserting the old pass book in the little gizmo, then stomping on it with our foot!! This would perforate the book with little holes that spelled out the word “CANCELLED.”

      Yes, our bank had the latest equipment… NOT!! Good practice if you were a square dancer, I suppose… 😂

A penny for your thoughts. I'm on a tight budget here.
