Frequently Asked Questions

What do you charge for your graphic design services?

Prices depend on many variants, but you can be sure you are getting a great value for your design project. Design jobs are traditionally charged by the hour however we prefer to provide an estimate for the project by detailing the scope of work received during the brief. Any artwork required beyond the scope that we’ve quoted is charged at R500 per hour or part thereof, with prior discussion with the client.

How does the design process work?

We start all projects by thoroughly discussing the details of the project with the client. From this discussion we establish the specific requirements, which we call The Brief. We believe that collaborating with the client is a crucial factor in making the project a success. Once we have established the brief, we will then submit an estimate for the artwork required. Once this is approved and we’ve receive a 50% deposit, we begin work on the project by researching ideas and submitting initial artwork for feedback. In our experience, the final design is normally a combination of aspects of each of the submissions. If any alterations are required, these are made and the amended artwork is resubmitted to the client, this process is called a review. These reviews continue until we’ve reached the final client approval.

How long will the job take?

Every job is different and every deadline is different. Really you should allow sufficient time for the designing and proofing of your work as important details can be missed when you’re in a rush. If your deadline is very tight, we will do our best to complete your work within this time. We will, of course, advise at the time of the work. We haven’t missed a deadline yet and don’t intend to in the future!

What format will I get my artwork in?

All artwork can be supplied in PDF, JPEG and PNG files. All artwork that goes to printers will be supplied in open Illustrator files with all fonts and images for them to do the repro required to make the job ready for the individual print processes. We will send you a Dropbox link with all the relevant file formats for you to download for safekeeping. These files area only kept for 4 months.

Who does the artwork belong to?

All artwork is the property of Design Ideas until full payment has received. Once received the artwork files are sent to you.

Do you provide the printing as well?

We are more than happy to provide you with the printed product! Many of our clients do not want to get into the hassles of finding a printer and are afraid they will not get the desired result. We are more than willing to provide the service of design and supply from our vetted and preferred printers to make your life easier!
