How we’ll work together

FAQs

LRD is here to help you and your business

How does payment work?

An initial deposit is required prior to starting a project. This is typically at 50% of the total quote, depending on the specifications. Payment for larger projects will be broken down into milestone instalments. Our payment terms are 14 days. I accept major *credit cards, e-transfer, check or cash.

Payment Plans: We can also break the project up into 3 or 4 payments if it is better for you!

How soon can we start?

I am typically booking out 2-3 months in advance.

If you have a rush job, please get in touch and I can see how we can work together.

You never know what life throws at you, and schedules change for last minute openings. 🙂

How can I secure my project date?

I take a 50% deposit upon booking for on all projects which saves your spot in my calendar. However, I’m more than open to discussing payment plans as I understand that branding is a big investment.

Do you offer fixed prices?

Yes. The price you are quoted will be the price you pay, unless the scope of the brief changes during the project.

Do you charge late fees?

Yes. Late fees will be applied to any outstanding invoices past the initial due date. Typically, all invoices are due upon receipt, and late fees are applied after 14 days. All late fees are accrued monthly until invoice is paid.

Do you charge a rush fee?

Yes. Rush fees are applied to any project or design request when applicable.

What is brand identity?

Brand identity is the visible elements of a brand, including colour, design, and a brand’s logo. It’s the manner in which a corporation, company, or business presents itself to the public and distinguishes the business in the mind of consumers. 

What does brand identity consist of?

Various elements, including:

  • logo or wordmark
  • different logo variations
  • key brand colours and colour palette
  • typefaces
  • typographic treatments
  • a consistent style for images and content
  • library of graphical elements
  • style guide
  • your visual identity on social media

Is a logo a brand?

A logo is not a brand. A logo is a visual symbol for a business, but it doesn’t represent the business’s entire brand identity. A logo doesn’t build a brand – it’s one step towards building a complete brand identity.

Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room. – Jeff Bezos

Do you provide a brand questionnaire for each client?

Yes. Each client will receive a Brand Questionnaire which is apart of the Branding process at Laura Ramsay Design.

You’re probably thinking this is a daunting task and you’re getting overwhelmed. This may happen, but remember, this step is crucial for your companies success.

Included in Questionnaire:

  • Company Information
  • Product or Service
  • Target Market
  • Project Objectives
  • Budget Range and Timelines
  • Additional Information Section

Do you charge for revisions?

Additional charges for revisions will vary from client to client. A set round of revisions are set in place upon initial scope and in the terms of agreement.

If client requests additional revisions, this will be billed out hourly.

Typical projects go through two or three rounds of revisions that may include colour, fonts, and layout tweaks, though some will require more, and some will require fewer revisions.

Is your work original or do you operate off of templates?

It is very important to understand whether or not a design company creates unique designs, or if they work with templates. Template work is not created specifically for the client. It is a generic concept that can be purchased by anyone. A benefit of template work is that it is either free or extremely inexpensive. However, you end up sharing a logo or web design concept with other companies – possibly even a competitor, and that work may not be reflective of your brand message.

Custom design work, on the other hand, is created from scratch by a team of artists and designers who take the time to study the client’s band, message, and goals. Custom design allows the creative process to flow freely, and ensures that a client’s brand messaging will shine through. Designers will typically craft several concepts based upon a document called a creative brief, and once those concepts have been flushed out with the creative director, they will be refined. The team will then submit anywhere from three to five completely unique designs for the client to choose from.

What file types will be delivered?

It’s important to know ahead of time what formats you will need. Insure to ask your design studio what files you will need in those specific formats.

Laura Ramsay Design delivers vector (.EPS) files in Adobe Illustrator and JPEG / PNG for web use. Vector files are ready for printing and will let you enlarge or reduce the logo without sacrificing quality. This means that you will be able to use the logo no matter what type of document you’re working with.

Does the client receive copyrights to the graphics?

This is very important to understand when it comes to ownership and copyright law.

Laura Ramsay Design owns all rights to custom graphics used within scope of work delivered. If client is looking to create additional collateral to build their brand, they will need to contact LRD for compensation. This not only includes custom graphics, but professional photography as well. This hassle can be avoided when details are built into scope of work.

Do you offer single logo design?

Over the years, I’ve offered clients a single logo design to start their business. As my business has grown, I’ve come to realize that a brand is so much more than just a logo. For this reason, I offer different packages to suit multiple business sizes and budgets, that include not only logo design, but always a level of brand strategy, visual direction, and holistic brand identity design. This allows for more clarity and diversity than a singular logo, and ensures that your investment serves you for years to come!

Do you work with clients outside of your home town?

Yes I do. Most of my clients are located in the Greater Vancouver area, but that doesn’t stop there. My clients can be found from Vancouver Island, Kelowna, LA, to the East Coast of Canada and the United States.

I’m flexible on time differences and connect with clients through email, calls, Zoom, Google, and more.
