Design Department Inc.
About this pro
After interviewing many agencies, we decided on Design Department and couldn’t be happier. These days personalized service can sometimes feel like a thing of the past, not with Design Department. They were fast, affordable, very professional, and branding experts. They met with the team extracting our internal customer knowledge and business goals, then delivered the proper branding for the business, syndicating it perfectly through our print and digital channels. We now have one consistent message for the brand in whatever medium we choose. Hire Design Department before your competition does. J. Rubino - Director of eCommerce/Social Media GatorChefMay 12, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?After an initial consultation and agreement to move forward, Design Department will provide a project estimate based on our mutual understanding of your creative goals. Within our satellite agency model, networked teams are assembled to meet the exact demands of your assignment, including project scope, creative objectives, budget, schedule and deliverables. We use a Small/Medium/Large framework to scope estimates which we provide for client review prior to starting. Range examples. Small: $500-$15K 1-3 creative professionals -- Medium: $15K-$30K 1-6 creative professionals -- Large: $30K+ 6-12 person creative team. Rush assignments require an upcharge - pricing is negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Fee discounts are available for retainer clients.

While there is occasional crossover between the various phases, a primary activity for each phase describes our typical project workflow. PHASE 1. Define > PHASE 2. Explore > PHASE 3. Create > PHASE 4. Refine > PHASE 5. Deliver
