15-minute Quick Call
with Reese Spykerman

Get fast design advice on your project so you can move for­ward with con­fi­dence.

Today you have a near-unlim­it­ed num­ber of choic­es, options, soft­ware solu­tions and ser­vices to help you save mon­ey and do DIY design.

But some­times you want a design­er to give every­thing a brief once over, or have run into a design or busi­ness prob­lem that you want an informed opin­ion on. Maybe anoth­er design­er cre­at­ed you some­thing and you want a sec­ond set of eyes, or you need some diplo­mat­ic advice on how to nav­i­gate giv­ing con­struc­tive and help­ful feed­back to your design­er.

In a Quick Call with me, you’ll lever­age my 15 years of expe­ri­ence as a design­er and busi­ness strate­gist. If this sounds like some­thing that could help, send me a note so I can first make sure your needs and ques­tion are a good fit for a Quick Call.

Examples of questions that work well in a Quick Call:

  • I made this pro­mo­tion­al graph­ic for my Insta­gram feed. Could you give it a quick look and rec­om­mend any design adjust­ments?
  • I’m pret­ty com­fort­able in Word­Press. Can you point me to plu­g­ins and soft­ware that work well for me to do DIY design with­out tank­ing my web­site speed?
  • Can you rec­om­mend a sec­ond font to go with the font I’m using in this design?
  • Im build­ing a web­site for my restau­rant. Do you have a tem­plate you can rec­om­mend?
  • My web­site was last updat­ed in 2002, and I don’t know what is most impor­tant to update it for today. What should be my biggest focus?
  • My designer’s first mock­up isn’t quite what antic­i­pat­ed. What kind of feed­back can help us move this project for­ward?
  • I’m a design­er and need a sec­ond set of eyes on this graph­ic I made for my client. Can you look at it and give some brief feed­back?
  • I bought an ebook tem­plate and used my own col­or scheme. Can you review the col­or palette I cre­at­ed and let me know if the col­ors work?

 

Who is a GOOD FIT for a Quick Call?

  • You have one design or small busi­ness-relat­ed ques­tion you need answered so you can progress with your project.
  • You’re a small busi­ness own­er who feels empow­ered to do things your­self but you want a bit of insight to help you move on with your next step.
  • You’re work­ing with a design­er or oth­er con­sul­tant and val­ue a sec­ond, con­fi­den­tial opin­ion.
  • You are con­sid­er­ing hir­ing me for com­pre­hen­sive con­sult­ing or design work and want to see how I approach a small issue before we work togeth­er on a big­ger project.

 

Who is NOT a good fit for a Quick Call?

  • You have a whole web­site or brand­ing project you need reviewed. (I have ser­vices for that, and you could have a small part of your site reviewed in a Quick Call to see if you want to move ahead with a com­pre­hen­sive review.)
  • You’re over­whelmed by tech­nol­o­gy and where to go next with your busi­ness and don’t have a very spe­cif­ic ques­tion or issue you need addressed in a suc­cinct and effi­cient man­ner.
  • You have a high­ly tech­ni­cal pro­gram­ming ques­tion (like “How do I pro­gram this data­base in Word­Press?” or “My web­site is throw­ing up this error and I don’t know how to fix it.”). My pri­ma­ry exper­tise is in front-end design.
  • You want to have mul­ti­ple peo­ple meet/talk on the phone with me.

 

What’s next?

  • Use the form on this page to con­tact me and briefly describe your Quick Call ques­tion.
  • I’ll review it and make sure it’s an area where I can help.
  • I’ll email you to arrange pay­ment and sched­ule our call.
  • We’ll talk for 15 min­utes at the sched­uled time (I’ll call you). Calls are sched­uled from 10:30 am-5pm EST.

 

What’s the cost?

$75 for 15 min­utes, paid by Pay­Pal (accepts cred­it cards). Please read the Quick Call poli­cies.
