About Brad Miller Design, Inc. Full Service Digital company in Chicago, United States

$95 per hour is our standard rate for design fees. This keeps the invoicing simple and straight-forward. If a client requests a flat rate per project we can certainly accommodate their needs.

Yes we provide estimates. Once we give a quote we monitor our fees to make sure we can stay within the budget. Its important to note that its the clients responsibility to keep a job within scope as well. A job can grow in scale and complexity and everyone needs to make sure there are no surprises when the job is billed.

Outside costs such as printing stock photography and messengers are sometimes part of a job and are marked up 15% higher than the original cost.

Outside costs are estimated as accurately as possible but at times the rough estimates of outside costs may change due to design considerations/client requests.

On large jobs or when dealing with new clients we require a deposit of 50%.  For clients with an on-going relationship with Brad Miller Design a deposit is not typically required.

Although no two jobs are exactly the same we generally expect a process like this:

Information Gathering. A client meeting is held to define the goals and scope of the project.

Initial Comps. After we brainstorm sketch and create our initial concepts we present these to the client.

Revised Designs. With the clients input we hone the design and revise with actual content.

Final Approval. Before a job is printed or posted to the web the client must approve to ensure the job is to their liking.

Production. Once approved we send out the job and supervise that it is produced correctly.

Comps are presented online or in person. We print out color comps and mount on boards for a formal presentation meeting. Many quick turn-around jobs are presented online by email or on our website.

Meeting deadlines is of major importance to Brad Miller Design. We estimate timelines just as we do fees. Its also the clients responsibility to keep on the timeline in order to meet the deadlines. We always do our best and keep everyone up to date on design schedules.

Brad Miller Design retains our source files unless stated differently by contract. If hired to design a brochure we deliver the brochure…Its that straight forward.

We keep our clients happy and pride ourselves on being easy and pleasant to work with. Clients can always request the files and we will work out a mutually agreed upon fee.

We aim to be a single source for our clients. Graphic design is a constantly changing field so we are offering new services all the time. However if there is a service the we feel is outside our expertise we may form a relationship with an outside vendor to take care of our clients needs. By forming these relationships we can oversee vendors to maintain quality and offer our clients a one-stop experience with Brad Miller Design.

Along with our design staff we have formed strategic partnerships with copywriters photographers media planners printers and many other professionals to assist with our clients marketing. We are a single source for all of your marketing needs.
