When I first started offering branding to pro photog clients, I thought that I would offer a couple of different options, with a couple of different prices. Some photographers want an entirely custom look, something that is only theirs and not AT ALL similar to anything else they have seen (and hopefully will ever see). However, some photographers want something that is unique to them, uses specific colors, their logo, something that resembles their style, but are looking for a theme/concept that is more main stream… say for example polka dots, stripes, a certain pattern, etc. I have found that the divide is nearly 50/50.
So what I did was offer both options…
The first allows me to create a custom brand for a client but then CHANGE it ever so slightly so that I can sell as a pre made set in the store. Here is an example to better illustrate:
Altered Business Set Sold In the Store
The other option is entirely custom branding.. made solely just for you, won’t ever be resold anywhere at anytime, and most importantly, YOU maintain the copyright over the theme/concept. I will never base any future designs off of the original. This is VERY important to many clients and rightfully so! It’s tailor made just for you!
All that being said, please keep in mind that I take ALL of my custom/semi custom brands seriously. Each and every client I take on gets my 110% undivided attention. I ONLY work with ONE branding at a time and I am available from the beginning of the project when I send the questionnaire until the very end when I deliver final files (often times even after that because of additional questions lol). Nothing is different in the process of the creation & project. Each client receives the same questionnaire to fill out and we work together to create a brand and concept based on you, your work, and overall feel you are trying to portray to YOUR clients.
The current wait list for my custom branding is now into mid January!!! Within a matter of a few days early this week, I completely booked up THRU December and am now taking deposits for early 2011.
