4. How much do you charge?

We have no set price list as every project and client has different needs. We are happy to provide you with a unique quote based on your needs. The best way to get a quote is to send us an email with your requirements. We can then schedule a time to speak in more detail.

We are here to do more than simply making your visual brand pretty. We’re here to build a relationship that helps you advocate and grow your business.

5. Can you match the pricing quoted by another designer / company?

No. Design skills, experience, and outcome vary by designer / company. Therefore, design is not a commodity. Our pricing is based on client requirements and level of expertise we deliver to them.

9. What role do clients play?

In order to create a successful visual brand, the client collaborates with us to define a clear creative brief and direction. We conceptualize a variety of ideas based on the creative brief, which we narrow down to the best. Then we polish these and present them to the client for feedback. This leads to revisions and the final editing.

10. Can you make my design look like this?

While it would be easy to replicate someone else’s visual brand, it still does not give you the differentiation and identity your business needs to attract and retain customers. Taking the time to explore and develop your visual brand will be an investment that will set you apart and grow your ideal customer base.

11. Have you done any work in ‘our’ industry?

It is likely we have, however we can apply and adapt our skills, research and process based on a specific industry. The process and goal are relatively the same, to build a strong visual brand that attracts and retains customers.

12. Who owns the copyright for work you have done for me?

All creative work produced by us will be the property of the client upon full payment. We reserve the right to use any work for promotional purposes.
