Pricing

I CHARGE BY THE AWESOME NOT THE HOUR — WHICH IS TO SAY I CHARGE A PROJECT RATE.

All project rates include the purchase of stock images, up to three rounds of revisions, and the delivery of print-ready files.

 

WHY NOT HOURLY?

Not charging hourly means that our timeline is only constrained by your printing deadline not by a budget. This allows us the freedom to dive in and explore new creative ideas ideas without either party worrying about “wasting time”. It’s important that you are comfortable with the developmental process (that’s why in the Creation stage I provide you with a design critique worksheet that helps you make a complete evaluation of the design), and that we have plenty of opportunities to communicate. I believe the best design work comes from a place of research and play — I don’t want to give you the first idea, I want to give you the best idea.

And you’ll never be surprised by the bill at the end!

 

PRICE POINTS

Each project is unique, which is why I get a lot of details from you before offering a quote, but I know how hard it can be to figure out if your contractors will fit your project budget if you don’t know anything about their rates. Click here to download a list of my 2018 price points.
