Reserving Design Hours
- Blocks are available in 5, 10, or 20 hour increments at my standard design rate of $50/hr.
These correspond to equivalent $250, $500, and $1000 blocks.
Web and Graphic Design
- All hourly based web or graphic design projects have a $500 fee to initiate a design. This fee is applied to the first 10 hour block of design.
Most web projects generally run between 25-45 hours, though this naturally varies with the extent of the project at hand. After a prospective project is reviewed for simplicity/complexity in terms of functions required and extent of content and style to be integrated, an initial time estimate is offered. Task lists for each block made in advance with hours updated as the project proceeds.
This has proven to be the most effective mode to progress step by step through a project with the client able to have a clear view on the time and progress that their site design involves.
- Graphic and sound design progress likewise with hours reserved in blocks in advance.
For less time intensive graphic design projects, a custom $250 deposit (5 hours work reserved) is required to initiate work, with any unused balance, if any, refunded upon project completion.
- For project based quotes, as above, 50% of the full quote is required to initiate the project design.
A custom link for this in our Oddiyan’s Gate design cart will be sent at the time of project agreement. All tasks, functions and number of revisions for the quoted phase will be precisely defined in a mutually developed and agreed project definition. What tasks are within the scope of an individual project phase, and what further work that is desired at an hourly rate, is clearly set and known by all parties in advance.
This assures the core needs for any project are met, with any further additional wants being fielded on top.
- Present your project!
I look forward to hearing of your vision and design needs, and to work skillfully to bring them to swift fruition.
