Our start-up friendly design package

You’ve just decided to start working for yourself, everything needs to be done. From naming to pricing, and you’re on a budget. You want to make a great first impression – because it’s still what counts. So to help at this time we’ve come up with a start-up friendly design package, to help in those first days of your new business.

We talk a lot sbout how great design costs. So how can we deliver the same award winning design service for a fraction of the normal price.

Firstly, we’ve cut down the bespoke nature of the service massively, removed the face to face contact pretty much completely. Made it so that the questions we ask normally are now in the form of… a form.

The second way that we’ve reduced the costs is to cut down on deliverables. Take a look at the chart below to see what we’re offering.

This is open to all start-ups or companies that have been trading less than a year. Unfortunately it’s only for developing an identity.

Packaging, signage, and all these additional (but very important) elements would need to be a bigger bespoke proposal. Also, payment is all up front.

All we ask is that when you need other work, you come back to us. This is a help to get going, once you’re going we’d love to work with you more.

3 reasons a start-up should work with us

Fixed price

We’ve tried to reduce the price for start-ups to ensure that you get great design at a price that won’t break the bank

templated briefs

To ensure that even without meetings we get the right information, we’ve created a simple to use briefing template

Great design

This offer still gives the same award winning design solutions, we’ve just cut down how much we deliver.

How does this work?

Stage 1

Fill in the brief. Tell us as much as you can; the brief is one of the most important parts of the process. then email it to us.

Stage 2

We’ll get back to you with our proposal; it’s where we highlight what we think is most important. Sign it off and we can get started.

Stage 3

This is where the design happens. We take the brief and turn it into graphics. This is all still bespoke to you and your needs.

Stage 4

This is the delivery stage. Here is where you get your final artworks, and any other elements that were covered in the proposal.

Brief us now

The brief is one of the most important parts of the design process (have a read of our post on briefing). Fill in the form to the right to go to our briefing template, and start the process.

We’ll then send you a proposal (within a single working day), detailing all that we’ll do and giving some idea of the timings.

If you’re pleased with the proposal and the quote, you’ll be invoiced (as this is one of the things that have changed for this to work – we get paid up front) and we’ll then get to work.

COVID Update (Oct 2021)

We’re out of lockdown now, and we’re most definitely still working! Hopefully we are seeing an end to the worst of this. We’re working partly at our Colchester based office again now, we can (as we’ve been doing) deliver all the work we usually do.

Obviously if you have any branding related projects we'd love to chat (over Zoom). In the meantime stay safe.
