There is no second chance to make a first impression. Customers make most of their judgements about you within 2 minutes of meeting you: the way you dress, your passion or enthusiasm for what you do and your professionalism. This is assuming you've got to meet them.
They make their first impression without you knowing, through your printed literature and activity online. You could be great at what you do, but how well you communicate this could be make or break for your brand. A logo then should be seen as an investment, something that is worth spending money on.
As a rule of thumb we’d never recommend a budget of less than £500 for a basic logo.
What do you need from me?
As much or as little as you want to give. You may be starting from scratch, with no clue about your brand, or you may already have an idea in mind of how you want your logo to look. Whatever the case, we can help.
Who will own the logo when it’s finished?
Some design firms will sell a licence to the use of a logo that has been designed for you. We believe that once full payment is made then all ownership should then handed over to you the client. Once the project has been paid in full and completed then we will create your logo in formats for print, web and the original design master files.
It is important to note that ownership will only be for the final agreed concept. All ideas and concepts developed during the project will remain the property of Word Gets Around.
We can help with anything you may need to showcase your new logo: business stationery, brochures, signage, vehicl wraps as well as advice for use with uniforms if required.
How long will my project take to complete?
How long is a piece of string? Every project is different, so it’s impossible to give a one size fits all answer. Every business has different needs, and we try to work around these wherever possible. The design and print process can be complex if you want to get it right, so please don’t come to us on Monday asking for a printed leaflet on Friday.
There are so many online design tools around nowadays, can’t
I just do it myself?
You can have a go, but there is a big difference between creating a quick picture for Twitter and developing a design for print that’s fit for purpose. If bleed and creep just make you think of a horror film, maybe you’re best leaving it to the experts.
Once you’ve finished my design, can you get them printed
for me too?
Absolutely. We’re not going to just hand over the files and leave you hanging. Our expertise is rooted in design for print, so you don’t need to worry about the logistics. We have relationships with local printers and can manage the whole process for you, from start to finish.
Can you build websites?
Yes we can, if you're looking for something simple that showcases who you are.. Our hosting platform also you to update your website when you want to with our built in Content Management System (CMS). We can also host your website, arrange domains and email accounts for you. For larger, more bespoke projects we work with local website developers who relish the opportunity to really show what they can do.
Please ask for more details.
What's the procedure for working with you?
Once you’ve made your first enquiry, either by email or via my contact page we will be in touch to answer any questions and to find out more about the project.
Whether you want to correspond via phone, email or meet face to face is absolutely up to you.
Once we know more about the project we will send a quote for you to review along with a contract and we are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding either.
After the contract is signed we will send an invoice for the 50% deposit and work will commence upon receipt of payment. Throughout the duration of the project I will keep you up to date with the progression of the project so you know it’s going along the right lines. Once the project is completed and you’re happy with the end result we will send you an invoice for the remaining 50% of the balance and upon receipt of payment we will email across all of the necessary artwork.
