How much do you charge?

I came across something on facebook which lead me to this rate page for a copywriter and his blog post about it. It’s so refreshing to see transparency around rates and I’m sure his clients appreciate it as well. Definitely something to consider for myself. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a design agency or freelancer post their rates.

Another Seth Godin assignment.

What is your client afraid their boss will think if they say yes?
They don’t see the value in it. That it will take too long, and don’t have the budget.

What would your client tell their boss to explain why they bought from you?
It will make us better at what we do, and it will show others that we’re as good as we say we are. Budget can be managed a la carte to control costs, but the investment in time and money is necessary to achieve our mission.

What would you like them to tell their boss?
It’s going to get us in touch with our audience, find out their needs, create something that addresses them and has impact. It will get us out of our rut, push us above the competition, and increase our audience and the difference we can make. It will be well-managed process from start to finish.

New Work: Social Solutions Logo

I recently designed a logo for an interesting company with a social
mission. Social Solutions is a creative organization that uses
technology and design to achieve sustainable social impact. It’s a
startup and I’m looking forward to seeing what’s in store. Hopefully
I’ll get to collaborate with them more.

Another Seth Godin assignment.

What do people buy when they buy something from you?
They buy my design and creative expertise. They also buy the opportunity to be part of the creative process. They buy an opportunity to connect with their target audience, learn new insights about them and foster community with the people they serve.

Leave out the easy, repetitive, generic stuff… What you are doing that’s difficult?
Creating a collaborative process that engages everyone on the same level is difficult. Organizing the who, what, where, and when if it all and making sure everything is captured. Getting organizations to buy into the process could be difficult as well. It can take time and patience. Also, I’m starting from zero, so I have nothing to show that I’ve done this before.
