I noticed your posting on Dribbble seeking a brand identity designer and I had to reach out. A “startup disrupting an old, boring appliance industry” is what captured my attention about what you are looking for in terms of your business and with the design. I put together this proposal for you to better explain my passion, process and expertise on what I can offer. Thanks!
Thoughtful & hands-on
I’m a problem solving creative that cares about people, ideas and meaningful design.
I have over thirteen year of experience working with brands and business of all types and sizes. Startups and businesses looking to brand or re-brand are especially important to me because of the opportunity to create a lasting impact on the business, consumer and market.
My Process: Investigate > Research > Concept > Design > Deliver
I like to connect with the people behind the business and fully understand the “why” to what they do what they do. I conduct investigative discussions into the problem prior to starting on any design. After that, I spend time researching effective solutions and unique opportunities for your brand. This research bleeds into the concept phase where I sketch out rough ideas. From there, I refine and present the designs.
The estimated timeline from first day to finalized delivered designs.
The brand identity typically takes anywhere from three to five weeks (depending upon turnaround and timely feedback). I will spend about a week investigating and researching, another week for sketching and one more week for refining and finalizing the logo. Because there are other deliverables involved, two more weeks would be required to concept and design appropriate renders and mockups.
The brand identity with colors, typography, business cards and mock-ups considered.
I currently operate in the Central Daylight Time zone from Mexico and work with businesses all over the globe. My working hours are Monday–Friday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. I am available outside of my working hours with some limitations, but can get back to you promptly.
The $10,000 quoted pricing reflects the deliverables requested: Logo, Color Palette, Typography/Brand Fonts, Business Card Design, Mock Box Packaging Design, Mock Vehicle Wrap Design, as well as my Investigative Research and Consulting. The price does not include any necessary licensing for fonts and/or stock photography that me be required.
Use this form to let me know if you are ready to start working together, or would like to discuss this further. After I receive your response I will reach out to you to find a time when we can talk, as well as move forward with providing an official contract. Thanks!
Thank you for taking the time to read through this! I hope this proposal answers some of your questions and I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!
