WHAT DO YOU GET?
WHAT DOES IT COST?
So You just got a quote from an agency or another designer or group for FAR more than you can afford. You gasped and said out loud “Are you kidding me? That’s a lot of money!”
The reality? That cost is fair. It’s to be assumed. It’s the industry standard. You can’t put a price on creative thinking and beautiful execution. The work that you want often costs an arm and a leg, right? Well, not really…
I’m an independent artist and designer that’s able to bring agency-level art and execution to the same project for which you were quoted thousands of dollars for. I keep your cost FAR under industry standards, and that’s a beautiful thing.
Let’s discuss the pricing you’ve been given, and we’ll craft a solution that fits you. I can take your hand and help you understand your options. I’m about to help you make the best decision for your business.
IDENTITY / BRANDING?
I provide a short creative brief / questionnaire to further gain an understanding of your business: your mission, capabilities, ideal clients, style likeness, color spectrum, and where you’d like to take your brand in the future. This process assists me in taking the creative reign. This phase sets the direction for the design work to come.
The cornerstone of your business from an outsider’s perspective is your visual identity. Your brand. I sketch and mold ideas until I see the concrete harden. I’ll offer 3-4 concepts to present to you and your business. When the final concept is reached, I show how my concept will be applied to mock products to test how it would work in your particular industry. Upon approval, I supply you with a final bundle of files suitable for every application, from print to web to promotional items and more, and unrestricted usage rights.
I also provide a concise, easy to understand document. A ‘CHEAT SHEET’, so to speak - laying out your identity to keep your brand clean and sharp. It includes a font package (if needed) as well as listing the color specifications of your logo, used by print vendors and web developers to ensure your brand colors will match across different applications. Pantone, CMYK, RGB, and hexidecimal codes provided.
My process is cut, dry, and simple. I keep the approach easy and fun. You, as a business owner have enough stress and worry, so allow me to take a chip away from that, and help you create something amazing, and effective.
I can, without question, create an entire EMPIRE of a custom website for your business.
However, maybe that’s not for you? Perhaps that’s NOT in your budget? So, let’s simplify it then! Maybe a Wix, Squarespace, or Shopify template, customized to match your brand, will be your proper suitor? I aim to find a cost-effective approach to create your website. That’s why I’m here. I will hunt down the outlet that allows you to make your own simple edits later without any coding knowledge.
COLLATERAL? SOCIAL MEDIA ART?
Absolutely! I can take your current brand, or the updated branded identity we’ve created together and begin the overflow into your social media, handouts, mailers, online advertising, and print ads! I thoroughly enjoy taking a different approach to your collateral by creating certain pieces that are rarely seen in this area, design isn't for 'plain jane' tri-fold brochures anymore. Pieces that stand out and make your surrounding client base say “Oh man, this is NICE!”.
