The Process

1

After your first contact, via email or contact form, we briefly start discussing your project.

Then, I send you a questionnaire to get to know your business, the project you have in mind and what your expectations are.

This questionnaire is of high importance. It doesn’t only allow me to get to know the project, it also comes in handy during the execution phase, so that I'm able to meet your expectations.

2

I analyse your answers, giving your project a good thought, envisioning it, making some tough decisions about the time I will need, and of course, the price.

Even though I love my job I don’t work for free. Please take into account that good design takes time and therefore, money.

It is also during this phase that I figure out if we are a good fit.

3

You get email!

The email includes a proposal with an estimate price and time.

In case you're happy with the proposal you receive another email with the contract.

In the contract things are pretty clear about each other’s rights and duties, so that no one is left alone in the dark.

4

You sign the contract and I receive a 50% deposit of the agreed price, then the fun part starts.

I do some research and start trying out some design concepts. We keep in touch, most likely on a daily basis.

You trust my professionalism and creativity and I pay close attention to your needs and expectations.

5

Your feedback means a lot to me.

If needed, I do some adjustments and the agreed design is finalized.

Should you be so happy that you just have to share it with everyone, you are more than welcomed to write me a testimonial, which will be featured on my website.

Afterwards we do a happy dance. Yay!

About

My name is Vitória Neves. I’m a designer and letterer living in the beautiful Algarve, Portugal.

I was born and raised in Germany but my parents are Portuguese. Because of that I don’t consider myself German or Portuguese. I’m kind of something in between.

Lettering and calligraphy are my great passions and I’m on my happiest when sketching letters.

This passion started when I was a kid. I would spend hours in a store just looking at pens. The first thing I bought with my first pocket money was actually a pen - a red Lamy Safari Fountain pen.

When I was in primary school I was eager to improve my handwriting. I wanted it to be beautiful so I created my first alphabet. I wrote down each letter several times and chose the one I liked best to create my own alphabet. Afterwards, I spent hours practicing it to make it my own new handwriting.

Two years ago came the urge to pursue my passion and I decided to quit my day job as a high school teacher to teach myself design, lettering and calligraphy.

I heard someone once say that the things you were passionate about as a kid, are probably the things you should be doing as an adult: Those passions are indicators of your dream job. I totally agree. Passion moves people and I want to use my passion to move others.

In case you want to find out more about my lettering, you're in luck. I recently started to live stream my lettering process on Twitch.
