Working with Justin

The Guide to Understand How My Mind Functions

SCHEDULE

My working hours are from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. (GMT+2) and I spend my early mornings doing website updates & replying to emails from the day before. For the rest of the day, I go into “design mode” and work on projects as they come in.

Communication

I prefer to communicate instantly via WhatsApp or Phone Calls. My email response time is around 1-2 days. So please feel free to send me a WhatsApp or give me a call if you have a basic question or need an answer to something urgently.

Status & Development

I like to continually stay in touch with clients and keep them informed about ongoing projects, so they are aware of the project’s status.

Questions

I can have a lot of questions sometimes. I use this to comprehend projects so that I may offer other solutions or provide a better result.

Feedback

I always appreciate constructive criticism, and I’ll never get take it to heart if a client doesn’t like my design. My goal is to make the client happy and give reasoning behind design decisions.  At the end of the day, it’s the client’s decision on the final design.

Timelines & Deadlines

I enjoy sticking to realistic deadlines, so if I promise to finish a project or design by a certain date/time, I’ll always keep my word.

After Hours

Like most people, I prefer that clients not call me on the weekends or after business hours, but in cases of urgency, I will always assist if a client is ready to pay an “after hours” fee.

Meetings

I favor having meetings online. Driving to a location for a meeting usually consumes a significant portion of my workday; therefore, I prefer to be productive and work as much as possible during work hours and have short 15-30 min video call meetings.

Workload

It makes sense to have consistency in a brand design, thus it’s always better if clients give as much work that needs to be done all at once, especially if the design styles for the many projects are similar.

Objectives

I work best when given a clear objective to work toward and the freedom to do so.
