DESIGN FORGE

The forge is open. We're ready to craft.

What can we craft for you?

We're in the business of crafting tools of design that are, essentially, extensions of your business, project, or event; items that represent your purpose, goals, and personality in a way that you can get behind.

We're interested in hearing your ideas. If you're interested in our craft, take a peek at our design brief below and drop us a line. The more you're able to answer from our design brief, the better we are for figuring out what you're wanting.

Process & FAQs


Timelines
Each project has their respective timeline that will be outlined in the proposal. Logo projects typically take 4-6 weeks. Web design projects take anywhere from 8 to 20 weeks, depending on how robust the site is. Individual graphic design projects vary more widely.

Payments & Discounts
We do ask for a deposit before we begin crafting, which is typically 25% to 50% of the project's lowest estimation. To accommodate our clients' budgets, we're open to negotiation on that initial deposit and on arranging payment plans. Discounts are available for those who pay upfront and for bundling.

Research & Brainstorming
One does not simply sit down and create without first getting to know the topic, researching what's out there, and creating many, many sketches and variations. This bit of the process is a hefty, vital part, particularly for logo designs—we want your unique logo mark to be unique, while also fitting into its respective field. Some projects prove more challenging and involved in this endeavor. We try to stick to projected checkpoints, but we'll notify you if your project proves to be one of those "more challenging".

Collaboration & Redirection
In essence, every project with our clients is a collaboration. Your ideas, needs, and feedback guide the process. If, at any point, a client feels the project has become "derailed" and not fit for their purposes, we're open to discuss good points, bad points, and recalibrate. At no point is a client forced to accept a direction or idea.
