We are happy to help! If you would like to submit your question prior to inquiring, please leave us a message at hello@thoroughfaredesign.com, and we will respond within 1-2 business days.

What is the one concept method?

Instead of creating several design options, we strategize with you to ensure we are fully on the same page, allowing us to focus our efforts on creating one design concept for your business, that meets your needs, connects with your audience, and achieves your goals.

How long will my project take?

Typically, a complete branding and website design project will take 2-4 months. However, if you need only one service, brand only projects range from 4-8 weeks, and website only projects range from 6-8 weeks.

How many revisions will I receive?

We provide initial concepts with two rounds of refinements for each design item. Additional design rounds can be purchased for an extra cost; however, many clients don’t utilize the two rounds of refinements that are included.

What can I expect for your design process?

For all of our custom projects, we have created a design experience that guides our clients on a path of self-discovery, helping to achieve specific goals and address current pain points. For a full look at our design process, click HERE.

Do you design standalone logos?

Because we believe powerful brand identities are made up of consistent visual elements, we do not design logo only projects. Instead, we commit valuable knowledge and design expertise to creating the most thoughtful identities possible, creating an array of brand marks and guidelines fit for every situation.

What if I need to hire a brand photographer?

We love collaborating with brand photographers to ensure that your brand and imagery all work together as one cohesive unit. We will provide you with a list of photographers in your area that we recommend, and schedule a 1-hour collaboration call to ensure everyone is on the same page for your shoot.

What final files will I receive?

During your final brand review, we will review your complete brand style guide, any re-usable templates, and all final files, which will be in the following formats: JPG, PDF, PNG, AI, EPS, and SVG). Raw files are not included.

Who will print and/or input my collateral assets?

Printing collateral or inputting digital collateral into social platforms is the responsibility of the client. If you would like us to handle this for you for your project, we would love to help you! This service will be an additional cost.

What platform do you build websites on?

We build all of our websites on WordPress or Shopify. For our service-based business owners, your website will be built on WordPress; whereas, for our e-commerce business owners, your website will be created on Shopify.

Who will maintain my website after completion?

Ongoing website maintenance and updates will be the responsibility of the client after the project is complete. If you do not want to manage this, we would be happy to assist you through our monthly maintenance plan.

What will I need to prepare for my brand project?

For each branding project, a detailed task list will be provided to you at the start of your project, which will include a brand development questionnaire, Pinterest board activity, and list of written content that we need for any collateral materials.

What will I need to prepare for my website project?

This task list is very dependent on the type of website that you will have, but typically, you will complete our client password form, all written website content using our fillable documents, and provide imagery, videos, etc.

What is expected of me as a client?

Each of our custom projects is a collaboration. While we are creating the design of your brand and website, it is very important that you complete your client tasks, provide feedback on design items, and attend any meetings.
