How We Work
Thank you for your interest in my work. I am a custom lighting manufacturer. I derive great joy from the creative process and sharing what I create with you. Each project is individually created for your design needs and aesthetics. I can create lighting fixtures suitable for home, office or public space settings. Projects generally consists of four phases:
- Initial meeting and discussion.
- Project proposal and budget.
- Design and architectural drawings for review, fabrication and delivery.
Getting to Know You
This is perhaps the most important phase of the project. This is where I meet with you for an initial discussion of your needs and aesthetics. This initial consultation is free. This can take place in my studio and your architect and/or interior designer is welcome to attend. If you cannot physically meet, then Skype is also an option. This allows me to understand your lighting needs and begin the creative process of achieving the results you are looking for. Inquires and visits are always welcome even if you are not just quite ready to create a lighting fixture. On location visits will be charged time and travel costs.
If you feel comfortable with this part of the conversation, we can go to the next step.
Presentation of Design Concepts
Based on our initial discussion, I will present three concepts for review. Materials, colors, size and design will be discussed and modified with your input and that of your architect and or/interior designer.
If you like one or more of these concepts, I will proceed to make drawings. There is a charge for this phase of the work payable upon delivery of drawings.
Project Proposal and Budget for Approval
The drawings along with a proposed budget will be presented for approval. Once the drawings are agreed upon a 65 % deposit will be needed to start the project. As I work on your project, photos will be taken of the progress. In-studio visits are also welcomed.
Fabrication and Delivery
When the project is completed, the lighting fixtures will be ready and available for pick up.
Other arrangements for delivery can also be made such as shipping or local delivery. At this time payment for the balance will be due.
I hope you will be delighted with the result and will be inspired to commission another
