I prefer to handle the majority of communication via text message or email. (623.698.2625 // firstname.lastname@example.org, respectively.) I do prefer to do initial consultations over a phone call or video chat. (Skype: tundracactus.) However, I can adapt to whatever communication style you prefer, as long as we have a way to get the important, legally-binding things in writing. Please do note that I reserve the right to take notes during our conversations over phone call, in-person, and Skype formats for record-keeping purposes to ensure that I am working accurately to fulfill your vision of our project.
Payment terms will vary depending on the type of job. For one-time jobs, I require 50% up-front and 50% after approval of the final product, but before delivery thereof. For regular hourly or longer-term contract jobs, I ask that we develop a payment schedule that we both agree upon in advance (be it in two-week pay periods or otherwise.)
