Our Prices

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 $90 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 idea of the costs involved right upfront.

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.
