01. Studio Overview
Ryan J. Hubbard Studio is the studio of, well, Ryan Hubbard. Ryan's worked in design and branding for 7 years, both agency and in-house. He's been a part of projects big and small, in fields ranging from the service industry, to tech, to architecture, to furniture companies, to world-famous magicians (or illusionists... whatever).
No matter the client, though, you are treated the same: as a partner. Ryan works with every client directly, in an effort to better understand their needs and create work that suits them.
The studio's approach is that of exploring possibilities and asking questions. Perfect does not exist, and done is subjective. To achieve work that's new and unexpected, it helps to ask what else something can be and if you've explored every angle. There are many answers to the questions posed in the design process, and we'll work to find the right answer that best fits the client.
Every project begins with a kickoff meeting, which is an important sounding term for a pretty casual conversation where we'll talk about who you are, your aspirations, what your project's goals are, and any challenges that may lay down the road. We'll all walk out with a clearer idea about the parameters of the project and what we're aiming to accomplish together.
Be prepared to discuss:
01. Brand vision, hopes, and dreams
02. Company mission, history, and future
03. Expectations, thoughts, goals, and aspirations
04. Target audiences
06. Likes & dislikes
07. Project scope, timelines, deliverables, and budget
08. Point of contact for the project duration
09. All of your big ideas
Based on our initial discussion and an expedited timeline required for a planned PR push, I think it makes sense to split the project into two phases.
The first phase will focus primarily on the CitySmart logo, business cards, and perhaps a pamphlet. Phase Two will focus on extending and applying the work done in Phase One, covering app store images, website front-end redesign, social media covers, and app splash screens.
This proposal is focused on Phase One, and will be updated to include Phase Two at the conclusion of Phase One.
All project fees are based on an estimate of hours required to complete deliverables, at a rate of $100 / hour. I'm flexible and more than open to discuss the rate in order to find something that works for everyone. The most important thing is that we do good work together.
Thank you 🙂
