Pricing for Branding & Design
We match your budget to give you the best return on investment
Matching your budget
Every project is priced according to the individual brief for that project. This approach gives you the most value for money because you have control over the project budget while allowing us to focus on the points that will have the most impact.
This is about getting the best return on investment. Good design will pay for itself, so the greater the budget, the bigger the return. If you have a limited budget, we can work out the most effective approach.
The Price Guide Dream
We wish we could just publish a list of prices for various design services to make things simple, but it just doesn't work that way. Even the simplest design task will have many variables that have to be properly considered.
Let's think of Logo design where some designers will offer a free logo with every site, while others will charge tens of thousands for a logo.
The differences in these prices will reflect things like the amount of time, the experience of the designer or even the amount of people working on the logo. There are many other factors that reflect this.
This is why, when asked the price of design, the answer will often be: It depends on your budget?
This is where we provide an agreed, ongoing service in return for a monthly fee. One of the great strengths of working this way is it allows us to really develop a good working relationship, meaning better results long term.
The other strength of working this way is it means smaller budget businesses can access design standards that are normally unaffordable to them.
With a service agreement Coton Creative Branding will be there to help you to maintain your brand and its assets. The services provided could include:
- Site hosting and maintenance
- Small changes to a website
- Ongoing website SEO services
One Off Projects
Some things only need to be done once in a while. If you only need a logo or a website then we would have a conversation about what was required to get the best return on investment for that item. We would create a brief with some agreed milestones, costs and a target end date.
Sometimes the project can run over time, at which point we would discuss what happens with billing and targets then.
Before we begin a project, we will expect an upfront payment, the amount depends on the scope of the project, usually 25% - 50%. The balance would be expected to be paid on completion of the project.
