Why Work with MSD?
An Ongoing Asset
On average my clients have been with me for 5 years or longer. This isn’t because they’re under contract, it’s because they enjoy the benefits of working with me and our ongoing success together.
Real World Results
I’m proud of my clients growth and accomplishments and would love to discuss how I’m able to help your business. For examples of what I can do for you, take a look at my Case Studies.
Analytic Data, Not Guesswork
Real world data is used to create your designs and build your website. This allows us to form a better understanding of your market and leads to an end product that attracts your ideal customer.
No Unnecessary Jargon
Jargon can be confusing, especially when it comes to web design. This makes choosing the right designer more difficult as it’s often used to impress rather than inform. I try to steer clear of tech jargon – unless you want the nitty-gritty.
Your Return on Investment
When I take on a client one of the factors taken into consideration is whether you’ll make a return on your investment. This balance keeps both my clients and myself happy.
Education & Empowerment
When needed, you’ll be provided training videos and documentation for you and your staff so you can hit the ground running from the word “Go”.
Package Design F.A.Q.
Costs for packages usually depend on the complexity of the design and the box itself. Standard packaging can start at $500 where as custom die cuts, which result in unique box shapes, start in the $1,200 range.
A die is a process which uses specialized machines to cut, form and sheer your package material. Think of it like a big ol’ cookie cutter. There’s usually a fabrication cost associated with creating a die as they’re custom ordered and made out of metal, but once the set up fee has been paid, your printer will be able to continue to use the die for years to come.
You own the rights to the final print-ready assets. (These are typically PDFs or raster images .jpeg, .png files).
In most cases the source files remain the intellectual property of MSD, however these too can be purchased if you’d like. (Typically .indd, .ai, .psd files)
Totally up to you. Smaller files can easily be sent to your email while files that are too large to send can be sent using a transfer service like WeTransfer or if you have an online storage account like Dropbox or Google Drive I can upload them there.
If you’d like, I can send the print ready files directly to the printer of your choice as well.
You bet! A typical project will include three rounds of revisions if needed and at each milestone in the project you’ll be sent a proof of the work to that point to make any additions or alterations before we move forward.
I’ll ask you questions regarding your business, its goals, and collect any copy (written text), logos, and images you’d like used.
With this information I’ll draft the first version of your package design and then touch base to go over any changes or additions you’d like to see.
Of course! Although I do offer printing services, if there’s a printer that you’ve worked with for a long time and trust their results go for it! I deliver print ready files that you can take anywhere without issue.
Absolutely, in fact most of my clients use the mockups I create for them in their marketing and on their website.
I do recommend using a professional photographer to take product shots, however mockups are a great way to start. If you’d like recommendations for local photographers, let me know and I can make introductions.
Depending on my current work load I should be able to help you out, however depending on your timeline, a rush fee may need to be added.
