FAQs

Where can I find information about your fees?

I understand the importance of fees and that’s why I don’t have a set fee structure. No two projects or clients are exactly the same and fees are negotiated based on a variety of factors including, but not limited to:

  • Scope of work
  • Type of project
  • Time frame

Once we’ve agreed to a fee schedule, there won’t be any changes to it unless the scope of work changes.

Do you offer remote consulting and training?

The short answer to this is yes, but it really does depend on your needs. If you’re just running into a few issues working on an InDesign project, we can probably get to the bottom of it with a screen sharing session.

On the other hand, if you need a full evaluation of your workflow, that would best be done onsite.

In either case, I’d be happy to discuss it. Contact me to get started.

Will you travel for on-site consulting?

Yes, I’m happy to travel to your site. Depending on where you’re located, you would be responsible for any travel, lodging, and meal expenses but I don’t have very expensive taste in food and will fly coach.

I have a website. Can you help me update it?

I’ll take over just about any WordPress site but anything else is going to depend on how and when it was created. I’ll be happy to take a look at your site with no obligation on your part.

Do you offer printing services?

No, but I do work with several printers. I’ll be happy to coordinate printing as part of a design project or refer you to one.

Do you provide web hosting?

Any domains and hosting should be in your name. That is for your benefit and protection. If you don’t already have a hosting accounting, I’ll be happy to get you set up with one.

Do you do production work?

Of course I do. In fact, I take great pride in my production skills. Just provide me with the job specifications and I’ll do the rest.

Can you recommend any books?

As a matter of fact, yes I can. Click here for a page with some of my favorites.

What's the story behind your URL?

I’m glad you asked. Back when InDesign was just getting its feet wet, most creative pros were using QuarkXPress. I moved to InDesign at version 1.0 and and never looked back after version 1.5 was released.

I’ve been recommending it to clients ever since and with all my pestering, some of them started calling me “The InDesign Guy.”

Do you have a blog?

Yes, I do. You can find it at www.BobLevine.us.

I was looking for info on older Adobe software versions. What happened?

This site was recently re-done. In the process, a lot of older, irrelevant content was eliminated. I apologize for any inconvenience but migrating information about 5-10 year old software didn’t seem worth the effort.

Feel free to send me a message using the contact form if you have a particular question.

Do you offer consulting/training on older Creative Suite software?

Unless you require help in moving to current versions of Creative Cloud software, no. It’s just not worth the effort to keep older versions of software at hand and try to remember which features were available.

Still have a question?

If I haven’t addressed your question, feel free to fill out this form. I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
