Chowder Blues & Brews 2012

Generally speaking, I do not charge for the first hour or so of any conversation concerning the size and shape of your project. I serve the greater Portland area for face-to-face meetings, but am willing to meet via gotomeeting.com or the like and am known to drive a ways if I’ve been in the office too long.

Basic Logo Package  $495 

  1. Consultation:  review & research where we ask questions and review possibilities – approximately 3-4 hrs
  2. Development: 6 to 12 sketched concepts to develop  -approximately 4-6 hrs
  3. Design: 1-4 rendered concepts, with a couple rounds of refinements – anywhere from 3-5 hours
  4. Files: Final logo provided in jpeg & pdf formats
  5. Bonus: includes business card design or similar sample material to show context

All projects require 50% deposit to begin and balance payment at project completion, unless otherwise stated.

Logo design  $65/hr

For the more succinct projects, such as rendering rough art print/web-ready, I charge hourly rates. I have been known to charge for blocks of time in advance – when securing 10 or more hours with pre-payment, rates are reduced to $50/hr

Sometimes it gets complicated, and these things cost extra

  1. Some logos require the involvement of illustrators, and we know a few we like
  2. Boards, committees, and partnerships requiring a greater consensus, and weak decision-making can incur add’l hours over the package pricing
  3. “Moving the goalposts” becomes package+hourly when exceeding 12 project hours
  4. .EPS files are available for an add’l fee equal to the package
  5. Spot color separations for t-shirts, web optimized graphic variations, and other specialty uses require add’l hourly file handling
  6. Formal copyrights release for complete legal control of the logo is available for a fee of no less than the price of the package.

Let’s begin!
