Expertise and Knowledge.
While we cannot speak for other design agencies, based on our business background we are able to put forth a more thorough and analyzed design and branding taking everything into account. We are also an unbiased party able to see the big picture to help clients make better choices and decisions. While everyone can buy or download free or cheap software and/or tools and take the time to learn it all themselves, the secret of design is elsewhere.
Less risk and less stress.
You can allow us to assume all the risk in the effectiveness of the design as well avoid over stressing as we manage the project from start to finish.
Save time and provide a better return on investment.
In the long run unless you are an expert designer you will ultimately save time and money. Along with an often more equitable design approach the saved time and money will ultimately provide a better return on investment. Oftentimes there is something more important for you to focus on that will make a better impact on your bottom line, help us maximize this by choosing us to design for you.

To understand the process we go through please see https://www.truemintblueprints.com/the-design-process/
It depends on the project and the client. In general we prefer to stick to a defined design process to help maintain a focused and calm project. We also stay away from rushed work that compromises quality and name. We always meet deadlines and do work to specific dates. If a design is required for a specific and defined marketing and advertising campaign then we work to that date.
Overall we have found we have to slow everybody down and take more time throughout most projects. This isn’t time that is charged to clients, it’s time for us and our clients to help ensure we make the right decisions and not get stuck within any boxes.
If you provide us with a physical quote and full details we will do our best to provide you with what we can do. In many instances we can find a solution that will make both parties happy and satisfied.
Everything! We provide our quotes as is with everything included. We then break our invoices down into line items to help you clarify where the costs are included. These can be anything from licenses to setup fees with third parties to plugins or materials. We provide you with our quote based on the details provided. If the project changes beyond the initial scope further costs may be applicable. At the end of the project upon final complete payment all rights and licenses are transferred in full to every client and any ongoing costs will be agreed to in writing by each client.
It depends. Every project and client is different. Some projects have fixed costs and ongoing charges while some are simple and small. We do our best to work within clients budgets while still providing them with the results they desire at no loss of quality or service. We provide quotes based on the scope of the project and details provided. We do not charge per the hour. We instead employ a strategy of managing our clients via a software program and then analyzing the details once the project is complete. This helps us to quantify every project individually as well as give us overall general statistics. This helps us to craft better quotes for us and our clients ongoing.
No it is not necessary to complete the questionnaire. We provide the questionnaire as a starting point and a means to obtain some details about your project. If you have specific questions or a vision you can simply contact us to discuss them.

No. In most cases we tend to stay away from templates and clipart. We prefer to make our own clipart and templates from scratch. We do use certain types of templates in regards to website design to help make posting and pages easier to manage and create ongoing for our clients. We prefer not to use themes in our website designs and instead build from the ground up. We will use these things upon client request.
In regards to Copyrights the creator owns the Copyright until it is transferred through contract and/or payment. When working with us you will ultimately own everything in full with all licenses and rights. Everything we do will be legal and we will never steal anything or use anything without rights within any project. You only assume full control and ownership upon payment in full for each specific design. We will provide written documentation upon the projects completion unless instructed otherwise by a client.
