It is hard to give one quick answer for this as every design project has its own variables that effect the price.
There are two types of billing depending on the project:
a) Fixed Rate – per-project price, pre-determined at the start of a project
b) Hourly Rate – billing based on the time spent on your project
We offer free, no-obligation quotes and pride ourselves on being transparent with pricing. All fees are discussed and agreed upon before starting a project, which eliminates any surprises.

Pricing is set on a project-by-project basis and is determined by the clients needs. We work with companies ranging from small startups to larger corporations and will work with you on a price that fits your budget.
For all projects we require 50% payment before starting the job and the remainder upon providing the final hi-res files. In terms of forms of payment, we accept checks, Paypal or E-transfers.
Before a project has even started we work hard to prevent this from happening. This is done by asking questions, a lot of questions and really making sure that we have a complete understanding of your needs. In most cases when a client is unhappy it comes down to bad communication. We take pride in having a process that works and keeps everyone on the same page for the entirety of the job.
The short answer is no, but the long answer is yes. We don’t offer preset design packages as every clients needs are different and a one-size-fits-all solution would be very limiting. Instead, we always provide the best price possible based on your requirements. The larger the scope of work, the better rate we are able to offer.
A good graphic designer offers an in-depth knowledge of the principles of design and has the software skills to bring ideas to life. Experienced designers will be able to provide insights into your business and how to best achieve your goals through quality design. simply put, if you want your business to have a professional look and feel then you will need to have it developed by a professional.
Yes, we can source stock photography or book a photoshoot based on what’s right for you and your budget. If photography isn’t a good fit for the project we can also look at illustrative solutions.
The most simple way to explain the difference is that a logo is a single graphic element within a brand, whereas a brand is the complete identity of a company.
“A brand is the encapsulation of a company’s mission statement, objectives, and corporate soul as expressed through the corporate voice and aesthetic.” – Margie Clayman
Start-ups are just starting up and often the decision makers have limited experience working with designers. They know the elements that need to be created for the brand like the logo, stationary, website, etc., but aren’t totally sure how it all comes together. This is where brand guidelines comes in! Also commonly referred to as a “style guide”, “graphic standards manual” or “brand bible”, it is the master document that gathers and defines all of the different elements within a brand and explains how to create new materials that are on brand. If developed correctly, a strong brand guidelines manual will allow any designer to seamlessly develop new artwork for your company.
In a perfect world the standards manual should be developed immediately after the logo has been finalized or when an established business is re-branding. Unfortunately it often takes companies years to realize that their marketing materials are becoming disjointed and that the look and feel differs from one piece to the next. It’s a common mistake, but not the end of the world. A talented designer can come in and develop a brand manual at any stage of company’s life that will correct their trajectory moving forward.
