Christian Beausoleil

I am a senior creative freelancer with over 30 years of experience in the advertising field. I am a bilingual Canadian citizen (English/Français), stationed just east of Toronto Ontario, and offer my services worldwide. I work with B2B and B2C corporations, ad agencies, as well as government and non-profit organizations.

As a seasoned independent contractor, my background extends vastly within the advertising field. My expertise covers every stage of a project from concept, to product release. I am fully capable of quickly swapping roles, filling the gaps wherever necessary to complete every task within budget and on time.

I’ve worked for many clients in the industry, such as Microsoft, Xbox, LG, Samsung, ASUS, CocaCola, General Motors, Subaru, Canadian Tire, P&G, Molson, Labatt, Budweiser, The Home Depot, Home Hardware, WalMart, BestBuy, EB Games, Honda, American Express, MasterCard, VISA, Peerless, Rogers, Royal Bank, TD Bank, Bank of Montreal, CIBC… just to name a few. A much larger client list is available if interested.

Work Terms

I am fairly flexible, but I prefer working on an hourly basis by marking my timesheet by tenths of an hour (every 6 minutes), instead of quarterly due to how quickly things can change during the course of a project.

If projects are small and can be completed in under a week, I will bill by the project. For lengthier projects, I send an invoice once a week, the following Monday. Invoices are expected to be paid within 15-30 days from invoicing.

All required assets (brand style guides, typefaces and fonts, vector logos & graphics, photos, etc.) need to be supplied prior to commencing a project, including a non-disclosure agreement to sign, if needed.

Hours of operation:
I tend to work within the usual business hours of 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday to Friday, Eastern time. But I do allow time to communicate after hours for clients who operate outside of the Eastern time zone, but I require advance notice.

Payment terms:
An initial down-payment of roughly 40%-50% in advance is required, based on the discussion and estimation of the project. If projects become more frequent, initial down-payments will not be required. Payments can be made by direct payment, or through other payment methods, such as PayPal. Please contact me directly to discuss.

Preferred communication:
Communicating by email, or sometimes by text are my preferred methods, but I also like to discuss the project verbally whenever possible, either by phone or Skype (or any other method preferred). The project goes smoother when I can get a better sense of a client's thoughts, ideas and needs. This allows the client to paint a clearer picture of the project, and I can ask relevant questions during the discussion.
