Branding vs Brand identity?

A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another. — Said Seth Godin.

The brand identity is a set of visual attributes that create a person’s gut feeling about your business. Which includes colours, typography, logo, patterns, motion transition, sound, and other graphic elements.

“Design drives innovation; Innovation powers brand; brand builds loyalty; loyalty sustains profits. if you want long-term profits, start with Design.”— Marty Neumeier

What do you expect from me as a client?

We are so pleased that you care enough about your product to source a specialised professional to bring your vision to life. We will work with you to understand your business goals and priorities. Once those goals have established, we will ask you to allow us the freedom to apply our skills and expertise on your behalf to achieve the project goals.

What are your terms of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA)?

We display a work created for a client as a case-study purpose. In general, we will wait until the project goes publicly—or up to three months after we hand over the project. If you require more than three months of cooling off period, please let us know in advance.

However, if you like us to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), the NDA fee is 30% - 50% on top of the total project fee, and it will expire in a year.

What happens if a project is cancelled?

Cancellations can be made at any time, with a non-refundable deposit serving as a kill fee. Your project can then be resumed once full payment is made on the remaining balance. Your contract will outline the obligations in the event of cancellations and terminations.

Can you assist with the development?

Yes, we can, our clients get the best results when they have our designer dedicated to their developer team for extended periods of time. Alternatively, if you do not have a developer team, we can suggest our trusted partner to you. However, this support will be a separate service.
