Why is good graphic design important? Well, it can definitely be an integral step in the process of establishing and maintaining a successful business.

It is not a secret, that we, humans, are not only rational but also emotional creatures and most of us are visually driven. Aesthetically created, eye-catching material engages and attracts, creates a sense of professionalism and good tone.

There are numerous more reasons why design is a key element of an outstanding business. You can read more about it in this great article.

The pricing

Since each client, project, approach, and strategy is unique, it would be difficult and unfair to sell a pre-packaged solution associated with a fee that is “right” for every client. Because of that, I price all my works on a project basis with a defined scope, after I’ve had cleared out the details of the project and reviewed what is going to be needed. By determining the level of effort of the entire project, I give a price that I consider is fair to both parties.

The cost of a project depends on a few things:

Turnaround Time

If you require a rushed time frame for your project, I may be able to accommodate, however, the cost will be higher. Good design takes time. It’s best to approach projects in an un-rushed manner whenever possible.

Amount of Concepts

I always start from at least 3 concepts but if you are not sure what you need or like yet and would like to see more ideas before making a decision, then, in fact, more design time is involved, which can increase the price of a project.

Number of Revision Rounds

The amount of revisions varies from client to client. Most of my design projects needed 2-4 revisions. But if that is not enough for you, we can increase the number of them. I am lenient with revisions and requests as long as my time and efforts are respected.

Basically, we can agree on the cost and scope regarding the project in two ways:

  1. You presume your budget for a project and I describe what I’m able to provide for this specific amount.
  2. You consider the things you need to be done and I give a price for the project (see the list below).

Logo & Brand Design

I create clean, modern and aesthetic logos for existing or newly established business and brand identities that interests and retains loyal customers.

Things on what price depends and what you should consider:

  • Type of Logo (Wordmark, Combination Mark, Emblem, etc.)
  • Amount of Revision Rounds
  • Turnaround time

Note Regarding Concepts

Because of the unpredictable and organic process of logo creation, it’s impossible to determine how many different concepts I’ll be able to create in the allotted work hours for a project. Sometimes I’m able to offer multiple designs to choose from, and sometimes only one. Rather than wasting time on sub-par concepts or trying to fill a quota of X number of logos required, I instead focus on the best ideas and perfecting them. I’ve found that this “quality over quantity” approach offers the best results and frees up project time for other tasks.
