ILLUSTRATION

 


 

LOGO DESIGN: $149+

 

For many businesses, this is the starting point of the corporate id. It's also often the first point of contact between company and customer. Color choices, typography, iconography all set the stage for how people perceive your service and can be the 'first impression' anyone will have of what you do. Think of it as choosing the right clothes to wear to an interview -- wear the wrong thing and it's an uphill battle.

 

Basic Logo Package: $149

  • Super-quick turnaround
  • Two choices of logo
  • One revision of chosen logo

 

Premium Logo Package: $399

  • Analysis of competitor logos
  • Ongoing consultation throughout project
  • Complete logo worksheet with minimum of three logo choices and/or variants
  • Multiple revisions

 

Additional logo choices can be provided at a rate of $75 each

WEBSITE DESIGN: $ Dependent on Project

 

If logo design is like choosing the right clothes for a job interview, then designing and developing your website is like deciding which location to use for your business and choosing how to decorate it. Would you kit out a doctor's waiting room like a nightclub? Or a nightclub like a waiting room? Is a small, compartmentalized office-space appropriate for a retail environment? No, of course not. Just like all your design decisions, your website should reflect your business function and style.

 

Special consideration has to be given to usability and the underlying structure and focus of the website. Just like our real-world examples, you'll need to choose wisely -- large, oversized, lounge furniture may be great for a big venue, but it would be entirely inappropriate for a small office. In fact, the furniture may not even fit in the space, making it a wasted purchase that hinders the ability of your business to function.

 

Custom Website Design & Development:

  • Ongoing consultation throughout development
  • Customized design and development to suit your business needs
  • Customized HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL
  • Help with initial SEO
  • and a whole lot more...

 

Pricing will vary depending on what your requirements are, but to give you an idea:

 

Example 1: A simple 5-page, basic html site would cost $299.

 

Example 2: The portfolio site you're looking at now would cost $1,200 and take approximately 50 hours to develop. That's function analysis, design, sourcing appropriate libraries, custom coding, image optimization, initial SEO and validation and testing.

 

Example 3: A theme (but not custom code) for Wordpress or a similar content management system (CMS) may cost in the region of $600-$2,000 and take between a few days and a couple of weeks to complete depending on complexity.

 

Example 4: A complete e-commerce site may cost $5,000+ and take a month (or longer) to build, depending on your requirements.

ILLUSTRATION: $ Dependent on Project

 

Sometimes a photo just doesn't cut it. Sometimes it's just not possible to photograph what you have in mind -- maybe it doesn't exist, maybe it's abstract...

 

We offer a full illustration service and can provide print or screen ready art.

BY THE HOUR

 

It's usually more beneficial  to opt for a 'per project' quote, but we can price by the hour if you'd prefer. The studio rate is $30 per hour, prorated every 30 minutes or part there-of.
