Design and film to help you change the world

Our Work Our Prices

About

We are a new kind of creative agency founded by designer and filmmaker Clay Kilby on the idea that organizations who seek change over profit are best served by non-profit agencies. We are in this thing to change the world, not to turn a profit, just like you. That means we'll work just as hard as you, we'll never sell you snake oil, and we'll never charge you a dime more than we have to.

We offer flat, fair prices, and post them right here on our site. We offer deferred payment options for non-profits in need. And we have a flexible do-it-all approach that's a great fit for small, scrappy organizations.

Branding

A great logo and and a great graphic identity are the price of admission to the world changers club. You might not have the funding of the top organizations, but we'll make sure no one can tell by looking at you.

Video

Video is the most powerful medium available to inspire emotion and motivate action. From script to shoot to final edit, we can handle every step, and we're fully mobile, ready to shoot anywhere in the world.

Print Design

World class ideas deserve to look the part. Reports, funding decks, and any other need you may have. We'll take your work and make it shine.

Web Design

You might be conceptual, you might be brick and mortar, but every organization needs a home online. We'll build you a world class digital home.

Pricing

We’re here to change the world, not to get rich, and we’re passionate about finding new ways to serve small organizations that can’t pay to play in the normal agency market. That’s why we’re posting our prices clearly and publicly. That’s why we’re doing our best not to charge you at all. And we’re nowhere near done searching for solutions. If you have an idea for a way we can better or more affordably serve organizations in need, we’re all ears.

Transparent Rates

We charge $80 per hour. And while it’s true that every project is different, and we can’t say how many hours a logo or website will require until we know the details, we’ve put together example estimates to give you a clear and simple an idea of the costs involved right up front.

IOUs Accepted

We believe that great creative can boost organizations in fulfilling their mission and raising funds. To prove it, we’ll give you up to two years to pay us. Take the work, raise the dough, and pay us back when you can. No interest. No strings. No kidding.

Grants

Someday soon we hope to offer 100% free work to the clients who need it most. We’re working now to recruit funders, and develop an accessible RFP system to identify worthy orgs. Click the donate button at the top of the page to help make this dream a reality.

Zero Interest Loan Details

It's hard to fundraise without a good brand. It's hard to pay for a good brand until you fundraise. We get it. For non-profits of limited means, we allow deferred payments for up to two years with no interest or penalty.

We accomplish this by issuing zero interest loans to cover our fee, made payable on a time-frame that works for you. Typically a single project will be broken up into two loans: an advance, signed at commencement of the project for half of the estimated total cost, and a second, signed at completion of the project for the remainder, plus or minus any adjustments that may have occurred over the course of the project.

Were not trying to reinvent the wheel of capitalism, and we're not giving anything away for free ... yet. We're just doing our best to remove some of the more onerous barriers small organizations face, so that anybody with a great plan to make the world a better place, can access to the tools of the trade.
