How much should I budget for a design project? 

The budget for a project can range depending on different factors—scope, timeline, and complexity, to name a few.

Our visual branding projects typically start at between $2,500 to $5,000 for simple projects like a logo, but can be as much as $30,000 or more depending on what you need.

Illustration projects can vary, but illustration style discovery (developing an illustration style for your brand) starts at $5,000 and basic illustration packages can begin with as low as $2,500 and go up from there.

How soon can I start a project with you?

We can usually start new projects in about 2 weeks to a month. If you need to start a project sooner, there may be a rush fee added to the project's total cost.

We’re not able to take on projects with less than a week’s turnaround time. 

The more time we have before we start the project, the better we’re able to meet your creative needs.

How long do your projects take?

A project's timeline can really range depending on the project's scope and the speed of our communication.

Typically, branding projects take between 1-3 months to complete but can take longer based on communication, scope, and revision cycles.

Illustration projects usually take between 2 weeks and 4 months.

Illustration style discovery projects typically range from 2-5 weeks.

Are there any projects you don’t take on?

We currently don't take on any projects that are for spec (free). We are only looking for paid projects with a minimum budget of $5,000 for branding and $2,500 for illustration work.

We also do not take on projects for religious organizations, tobacco, or firearms—out of personal preference.

We are not looking for any UI/UX based projects (mobile or web). We take on simple web design projects when bundled with branding, but not stand-alone web design projects. 

If you need help finding someone who can help with these types of projects, we can help refer you.
