pricing structure is quite simple and is all-inclusive for each category.
For logos, the price includes consultation, approval and creation of
both high-resolution versions for print, and low-resolution versions
for use on the Web. (Click

For banners, the same scenario applies, though banners usually only
require low-res versions since they are most often used on websites.
If necessary for the creation of printed forms and promotional pieces,
high-res versions can be made available as well. (Click

My website design service incorporates all elements necessary for the
creation and publishing of an exclusive custom site. This includes logo
design or refinement (if necessary), banner design, page design, navigational
structure, exclusive original graphics and artwork, basic animations
(if appropriate), publishing and hosting, domain name acquisition, and
promotional consultation. In short, everything necessary to establishing
a working online presence. The base cost of $2,500 covers creation of
a website from 5 to 30 pages deep. Additional pages based on existing
page designs, are charged at $75.00 each. For large blocks of additional
pages, the price (usually lower per-page) can be negotiated. (Click

Print advertisments cannot be given standard prices because of variations in size, file type, format, resolution and other factors. A general starting point, however, for commonly sized magazine ads provided at 300 DPI in JPEG format, would be as follows: Eighth-page: $200; Quarter page: $300; Half-page: $700; Full-page: $1,000.

Payment terms are 50% in advance, with the remaining 50% to be paid
upon approval of the finished product. Until approval and completion
of the project, only small, low-resolution versions of logos and banners
will be provided, and websites will remain on my design URL under my
exclusive control. Copyright ownership will only be transferred to the
customer once final payment is made and confirmed.
Because I work alone and it is impossible to know what my workload will
be at any given moment, and considering the fact that designs vary considerably
in complexity and creative time consumption, it is impossible to estimate
with any degree of accuracy how long a particular project will require.
I do however, attempt to adhere to a fairly predictable schedule.
logos and print ads, this schedule usually dictates production of a preliminary design
within one to two weeks, with completion (depending upon changes and
adjustments requested) within another week or so. The same holds true
for banners created from scratch. For websites, I try to have the base
designs ready for examination within two to three weeks. After that,
completion of the site is entirely dependent on the number and complexity
of requested changes, and the availability of regular communication
and input from the customer.
