Zechariah Manning

Hourly Rate: $72.50

As a graphic designer, hands-on branding adviser, and creative consultant, I specialize in bringing your business to life.  Whether it's creating a brand image from inception, or refreshing the face of an existing business, my goal is to foster a mindset in your clients that calls them to action.

Specializing in logos, business cards, brochures, flyers, illustrations, graphics,  or complete websites, I'll dedicate myself to thoughtfully establishing a professional market perception that communicates quality, value, and trust for your business.  

With an Associates of Arts Degree, two years of university study, and a 4.0 gpa during my continuing graphic and web design curriculum (80 credits), I was recruited to the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and have qualifying credits towards seven certificates in Web and Graphic design— HTML Web Content Developer, WebGraphic Production, Web Graphic Designer, Adobe Certification Training in Photoshop, Adobe Certification Training in InDesign, Adobe Certification Training in Dreamweaver, and Adobe Applications Specialist.

My official design coursework includes Photoshop, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Illustrator, XHTML, CSS, Graphic Design Principles and many more. 

Branding is about communication and the relationship between a business and its customers.  My study in psychology, media communications, and public relations have equipped me to understand the dynamics of behavioral economics.  Official field-related coursework includes Writing for Mass Media, Public Opinion and Propaganda, International Communication, Public Relations, and Brain/Mind/Behavior.

The creation of high quality work stands on the foundation of cutting-edge software. Adobe's flexible and powerful Creative Cloud translates my creativity to the screen and print. There's currently no better software available in today's market.

Excellent customer service and communication is a staple of my services. I can be counted on to consistently articulate relevant and important information promptly. ZDM Designs exceeds expectations. I'm looking forward to serving you!

Overview

I'm always excited to work with new clients and apply my skillset toward someone else's success. If you've worked with me in the past, and you'd like to recommend me to a friend, colleague, or one of your own clients, your actions won't go unnoticed... and neither will your wallet! For every individual completed contract with someone who was referred by and specifically mentions you, I'm happy to provide you with a monetary kickback according to the Referral Schedule and Basic Terms listed below.

Referral Fee Schedule as of

Contract Total % USD Kickback
$1 - $999 10%
$1,000 - $1,999 12.5%
$2,000 - $2,999 15%
$3,000 - $3,999 17.5%
$4,000 and up 20%

Basic Terms (just a little fine print)

The referral payment is calculated based on each completed individual contract, and not a sum of all payments received by me from a client over any period of time.

Project(s) scope and length is based solely on my discretion and availability. I am in no way obligated to take on a contract according to terms, timeframes, milestones, or deadlines outside of my availability/discretion and professional recommendations.

All business dealings, project objectives/scope, transactions, contract negotiations, price-points, payment schedules, time-frames, deadlines, and all communications are solely between the referred client and me. No outside control is exercised.

"Contract Total" = The total amount I received in an individual contract after payment transaction/transfer fees (if any). Schedule subject to change.
