you would like us to work within, please let us know. Once
we have a detailed understanding of your desired web site,
amount of content, web site features, enhancements, and web
site goals, we will put together a proposal within your stated
budget range. Please keep in mind that the more that we know
about your business and what you wish to accomplish, the more
we can help you. In developing a business web site, it is
important for us to become educated and informed about your

should I think about when designing a logo?
You should think about whether you want an illustrative
logo (a logo that includes an illustrative representation
of what your company does), a graphic logo (a logo that includes
a graphic - or abstract - representation of what your company
does), or a font-based logo (a dynamic type treatment that
is unique to your company), or a combination of all three.
You should also consider the future usage's of your logo as
this can determine the technical set up of your design and
might pose some design limitations.
many logo designs samples do we get to choose from?
4 logo samples will be provided in the base price. If for
some reason, we didn't match your chosen style in the initial
samples, you will receive 4 adjustment cycles. However once
you choose any one of the initial samples and we work on the
refinement, any other additional samples thereafter may be
ordered for an additional 50% of the standard logo rate.
many revisions to the initial logo concepts do you provide
to your clients?
We provide up to 3-4 iterations/revisions for the
selected sample design. However, we refine the sample till
the quality expectations of the client are met.
formats are my logo delivered in?
Print logos are normally delivered in EPS (Encapsulated
Post Script) or TIFF (Targeted Image File) format, vector
resizable formats for printing AI (Adobe Illustrator) or CDR
(Corel Draw), unless requested in another format by the client.
Clients wishing to have their logo in a specific software
application format should check with us first before beginning
their logo design.
logos are normally delivered in GIF or JPEG format, depending
on the design of the logo. Special formats can be created,
but we usually recommend sticking with these formats for general
logos (other than the web, such as for a presentation) can
be created in GIF, JPEG, PNG, Windows Bitmap, and many other
formats. Again, we strongly recommend letting us know beforehand
where you plan on having your logo displayed so we can make
your logo design completely compatible when finished.
