where does the cost come from?

Design can be expensive and you might be wondering how I come up with my pricing. While there are so many factors involved, I’ll try to outline some of the main ones for you.

EXPERIENCE

Design makes a big impact on your business – from building stronger connections with your audience to conveying the quality of what you do. Working with a designer is an investment in your business, so that value is reflected in my pricing.

VaLUE

After years of doing this, I have a pretty good awareness of how my experience and skill matches up within the industry. I try to price myself very fairly while still asking for what I know that I deserve.

Design takes time. Like, a lot of time. For each concept that I present, there are hours of experimenting and testing that happens behind the scenes. So with my pricing, I have to account for all the hard work and time that I put into each project.

Monthly payments? So cashflow-friendly, I’m in!

Before we start our project, you will have to pay a non-refundable 30% deposit to save your spot in my schedule. Then, the remaining invoices will be broken down into equal payments throughout the project. Please note that these payments are scheduled by date, NOT by milestones in the project. I do this to help keep the project moving and avoid delays. You will have access to pay all invoices online.
