What was the scope of their involvement?
Brandmint has helped refine my brand vision. So far, we've done a brand archetype session, which helped me figure out a better sense of my brand.
During the meeting, we created a brand standards guide from scratch, setting out my colors, fonts, and all other aspects of my brand. They've also created my logo and business cards.
Besides branding, they've done web development for me and are currently working on my Shopify store.
What is the team composition?
Beth (Creative Director, Brandmint) is my account manager. I really enjoy working with her, and I feel that my project has become a pet project of hers.
I also work with a copywriter, a business administrator, and the owner. There’s a part-time photographer at Brandmint, too, who’s pretty talented.
How did you come to work with Brandmint?
I was extensively looking for graphic designers locally and found Brandmint. I knew the owner peripherally. He has some experience in the industry I am in, which made me confident that they could understand my business.
Ultimately, I decided to work with them because of their pricing structure. They price on a per-project basis and on how many hours are attributed to your project. This allows them to give an estimate on the cost but also set a guarantee that they will have your deliverables ready at, or below, a set cost.
I have been burned by per-hour pricing with no guarantees from graphic designers, and Brandmint’s pricing guarantees made me hire them.
How much have you invested with them?
I’ve invested roughly $9,000 so far.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began work in August 2019, and the work is still ongoing.
