In today’s tough economy, business owners need to stretch their dollars and make the most of their investment. We get that. So what are our fees? It all depends on what you need, but we like to preface the numbers discussion with our quick take on
quality vs. investment:

quality


Our work is high caliber. We’re intimately involved with our clients, we are recognized internationally for excellence in design, we have extensive marketing experience and expertise, and we offer outstanding customer service.

We take great pride in our work and in making sure things get done the right way. The truth is, our custom design services are not going to be the least expensive. And if price is your number one deciding factor, we’re probably not for you. But if you value artistic creativity, attention to detail, and personalized customer service, we think you’ll be hard pressed to find higher quality design work for your investment.

Right, but I asked… how much?

It depends on your project. But we can offer some basic guidelines to help you understand how we arrive at our numbers.

Our standard rate for creative services including design, writing, programming and marketing services is $125 per hour. The following examples demonstrate how are rates are calculated for various projects.

  • Market and industry research – 3 hours
  • 5-7 Preliminary logo comparable designs – 10 hours
  • 2-3 Rounds of minor revisions – 5 hours

TOTAL = 20 hours
If all goes smoothly, your logo design project can be complete in about 20 hours over the course of 1-2 weeks, which equates to around $2,500. Need it for less? How about fewer comps? Or you do some market research for us? Or we limit the revisions? We can work with you.

Or we limit the revisions? We can try to simplify the process and work with you and your budget. But this time estimate is very accurate for a standard website project.


digital marketing campaign


Monthly activities to include the following:

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
