Q: What do you charge for your graphic design services?
A: My hourly rate for most graphic design projects is R 385.00 and is billed in thirty minute increments of R 195.00. There are some projects such as logo design, that I offer flat rates instead of an hourly rate (from R750.00 to R 1 500.00). I will provide an estimate for individual projects before commencing. I am able to provide a low hourly rate due to my minimal overhead. I’m pretty flexible on alterations.

A: A 50% deposit of the total fee is required upon signing off of official quote. The remainder fee is due upon completion of the job.
Q: What does the logo design process involve?
A: First we discuss your needs, target market, and uses for this logo. I then ask for samples of existing logos that you like or dislike to get an idea of your taste. If you already have a design concept in mind, great! If you have no idea what you want, I can help you figure it out. Either way, I will make sure I’ve collected enough information before I begin work. After our initial discussions, I will provide a design or designs for your review. From there we will work together to fine tune the final design to your satisfaction.
