Corporate or Murals
When hiring an artist for a commission project – you should expect enthusiasm, professionalism, fair pricing, attention to detail, the ability to deliver what the client desires, and the ability to complete the project on time. You will find all of these characteristics when you sign up for a commission art project with Artist John Ross Palmer. Palmer understands that for corporate commission projects, the art is to be seen and enjoyed by many. It should offer a bold and broad appeal. If the artwork is to be specific to the company, he takes pride in understanding the business culture and its values to ensure that his artwork communicates the authentic spirit of the company. Many times corporate art projects are facilitated by a designer. Palmer has countless positive experiences in working with designers to satisfy their goal of achieving an overall design aesthetic. Palmer also has experience in making professional art presentations to Boards of Directors so that all key stakeholders understand the value of their investment in his artwork.
Palmer’s commission process proceeds as follows:
- Palmer meets with the client to discuss the size and scope of the project. If it is a corporate client, the company needs to assign one person to be the point person for communication with Palmer throughout the process (if it is not the designer). At this time the client should provide as much detail to Palmer as possible. At the same time, if the art project is inspired by photographs, providing a limited number of your “favorite” photographs is appreciated;
- Palmer will then provide the client with a written proposal that often gives multiple size and price options;
- The client selects their desired option and then pays a 50% deposit;
- Palmer works on a sketch or mock-up of the piece(s) and presents it to the client for review. At this point in time the client should offer any and all potential edits to the color and substance of the painting(s) or mural;
- Palmer begins work on the project and reaches a point where he believes it is “ready”; and
- The project or mural is unveiled to the client and then the client is given one opportunity to suggest artist edits. Once Palmer makes all potential edits in good faith, the remaining 50% balance is due. The project is then signed, sealed, delivered, and installed.
