Website Frequently Asked Questions
We know you probably still have lots of questions, and that’s completely fine. Here are some of our most frequently asked questions. If you still have more questions, please get in touch, and we can answer it directly.
Do you only work with Canberra Clients?
We both live in Tuggeranong in Canberra, and generally find people in Canberra love working locally, but we’re also happy to work with anyone around Australia. Online video calls are great and it’s just as good as meeting in person. Get in contact and let’s get started.
How much will graphic design work cost?
Because we offer so many different graphic design services, we’ll need to quote individually for the work.
Get in touch and we can give you a clear idea of how much it will cost.
Do you require payment upfront?
We ask for a 50% deposit upfront, which is non-refundable. This is to cover the cost of the time we spend on research and design. It means that if either of us decides the partnership is not working, you won’t need to pay anything further and we can part ways simply, however, we would retain the ownership of that branding unless you complete the process with us.
What are your payment terms?
It’s pretty simple. We start work after you have paid the first 50% non-refundable payment. Once you have signed off on the design, we ask for the final 50% payment before we hand over the artwork.
You can also see more of our Terms and conditions here.
How long will it take to complete my project?
It depends on what kind of project we’re talking about. Most graphic design projects will take around 2 weeks, but we can give you a more accurate amount of time as a part of our pricing proposal. We are usually 4-6 weeks booked out, so unless it’s a small job for an existing client that we can squeeze in between other work, you’ll also need to keep that in mind.
What is included in a round of revision?
When designing for you, we include rounds of revisions as a part of your quote. The idea is that initially, we will come up with what we think will work for you, but in most cases, a few things will need to be modified. You can give us feedback and we will come back to you with a revised version of the design. Each time we send you a copy of the design back to you, that is a round of revision. So to get the most out of your revisions, we recommend taking the time to look through and give us as much information about what you like and don’t like, so we can do them all in one go and you only use one round of revision for the changes.
Because this process takes time, once we have reached our quoted limit of revisions we will have to charge for each additional round of revisions after that. We will let you know how much you will be looking at paying for each additional round required.
What's the difference between a 'round of revision' and a 'design concept'?
If we have quoted to provide 2 design concepts with 3 rounds of revisions this would include two unique initial designs, after you have selected one of those designs we will then offer up to 3 revisions on that chosen design. In between each round of revisions you will have the chance to give us feedback.
If you aren’t happy with either of the initial design concepts and would like a whole new concept we will renegotiate the quote at that point.
How do we get started?
It’s easy, just fill out our contact form and let us know a bit about you and your project. We will get back to you and arrange a time to talk on the phone, video call, or meeting in person.
