Erin Foglietta, Designer
Hemlock Hill Design is me, Erin Foglietta. I am a graphic designer based out of southern Maine with seventeen years' experience in design. I moved to Maine from Boston in 2003 seeking a more quiet life for my family. In Massachusetts, I spent a decade as senior designer for Young Design Associates in Reading, MA, whereI learned the nuances of building solid client/designer relationships by providing high-quality design creations on time and on budget. I've built an extensive portfolio designing for large scale companies with large scale budgets. Now, I am happy to offer my expertise to smaller businesses with smaller budgets.
This studio is Mac based utilizing Adobe CS programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Logo Design: For logo design projects, I will create initial original design concepts for the client to choose from. The chosen design undergoes final changes until approved. Final artwork is provided to the client in all formats for print and web use.
Print Design: Print design projects are created in InDesign and final press-quality files are provided directly to the printer of your choice (unless client requests otherwise). Initial quotes for print work always include two rounds of edits and press proof.
Website Design: I often provide UI website design to web developers I partner with, as well as people who choose to build their own sites. For these projects, I charge an hourly design rate. Depending on the amount of design involved, the average project can take anywhere from 10 to 20 hours. Designs provided are a homepage layout and an interior template layout, and will be provided in layered PSD format.
Website Development: I create basic CSS HTML sites that do not require heavy backend. Websites are initially quoted on a per page basis and include two rounds of edits and an optional free Flash banner. This studio only provides the service of design and HTML, not the service of site hosting or domain registration. Clients are requested to purchase their own domain and hosting (I recommend doing both through GoDaddy.com), and I post the final website files to the client's server when ready for launch.
