FAQs

Circlemakers Studio is an independent brand agency. Although Circlemakers Studio is partnered with 99designs, they are not part of 99designs by Vista, and operate independently.

Circlemakers Studio branding packages are led end-to-end by a Brand Strategist, who works and collaborates with you consistently throughout your project. They will take care of everything from setting the direction for your brief, logo concepting, recruiting the right creatives, brand application, and finalizing all your final deliverables. They can also provide brand naming and messaging add-ons, custom creative recruitment at scale, and consult on how to continue to apply your brand further.

Our pricing is really simple and transparent. The Circlemakers Studio Full Service Brand Pack starts at US$3,999. If you need something more custom, or there’s something in the design packages you’d like to see in addition, get in touch. We’d be happy to provide a custom quote.

 
The total length of time will depend upon the complexity of your task and the stakeholders involved in the decision-making process. On average, it will take around 4-6 weeks to complete all the deliverables in the Full-Service Brand Pack, which will deliver a visual brand identity, social headers, letterheads, business cards and a 6-page branded pitch deck template.

As Circlemakers Studio is an independent agency, we follow the same best practices for 1-to-1 projects on 99designs, where the money-back guarantee does not apply. We always work closely with our clients to ensure we deliver a high-quality outcome. In the unlikely occasion that a project is canceled, we’ll look to the agreed project payment structure for guidance on what can be offered as a partial refund.

We can! If you’re developing a new product, brand or re-branding we will workshop your goals with you, and provide up to 10 naming options along with a choice of 3 taglines. We’ll run a Google, WIPO, and domain check, and you can select the name that fits your vision the most. Our naming package starts at US$1,999.

We ask our clients to pay online using the standard payment methods available on 99designs. However, in some cases, we can arrange for an invoice you can pay via bank transfer. Reach out to us for a consult and we can provide more information.

Yes. We’ll run a brand workshop to help clarify your audience, mission, values, tone, positioning, benefits & differentiators. As an outcome, we’ll craft a brand messaging framework that can be incorporated into your brand guide. Our brand messaging packages start at US$2,999.

Our team of brand strategists have worked with the 99designs community for several years and are experts in finding and recruiting creative talent, based on style, skill, and interest.

Currently, we are only able to offer our services in English and German.
