What Others are Saying:

  • “House of Leopold is the epitome of a stellar graphic design company. HOL created my logos that makes all of my social media platforms, business cards, and website a cut above the rest. 

    Not only are their design techniques fantastic, their customer service and quick turn-around time are definitely qualities that give me the pleasure to reference them to my friends and colleagues.  They know exactly what type of design is needed for different industries, and can also collaborate the customer’s needs with their own remarkable ideas.”

  • “I loved working with House of Leopold on designing logos for my band. Like most people, I was looking for designs that were creative, unique, and a good representation of my brand.

    Most importantly, I wanted an artist who could create something I wouldn’t think of myself – a fresh perspective, if you will. Being a busy person, I also wanted someone who could take a vague idea and run with it, without much direction from me.”

  • “I reached out to Jacy at House of Leopold at the last minute for a fun wedding idea. I gave her my thoughts and ideas and Jacy came through with flying colors… she read my mind, and made my ideas come together.

    She was fast, proficient, and communicated (which is a HUGE thing for me), she made sure I liked her work, and made the corrections I asked for. Everyone loved what she did for me. I would recommend Jacy at House of Leopold for all your needs. She’s professional, great at what she does and, in my opinion, very reasonably priced.”Teresa Mary Nicholson

  • From a business perspective, House of Leopold was prompt and professional with all communication. We had open conversations regarding budget, timeline and invoicing so there were no surprises.

    The final product was a Brand Identity folder with the agreed-upon logos in multiple formats, as well as a Style Guide that I share with other business partners for web design, merchandise, and other marketing materials. This keeps things simple for me, and facilitates consistent branding across different vendors. Overall, I had a fabulous experience working with House of Leopold and recommend them to anyone!

Process

The goal of a creative process in graphic design is to set clear milestones and deadlines ensuring timely delivery of the project. By its own nature, creativity is hard to harness into a predictable and linear set of stages, but it is important to do so with our best attempt.

While the exact milestone completion dates may vary, we will keep open communication about needs and expectations. Our best outline for a logo design process is below.

  • Client discovery/intake meeting
  • Research/sharing and industry discovery
  • Contract signing and process management meeting
  • First concept for logo, text, and color options
  • Finalization for logo text and color options
    • with one more one of edits/meeting available if needed
  • Delivery of Final Branding Package
  • Delivery of Professional Appearance Necessities

Below is a slideshow outlining a sample logo process:
(1.) first round of ideas, (2.) typography exploration, (3-5.) proposed logos, and (6.) final product.

Pricing

We work with businesses from all ends of the spectrum from musicians to corporate banks to non-profits.

We are capable of producing graphics at whatever level of production or professionalism your company demands. And because we appreciate starting at the bottom and working to the top, we will work with you to create a branding package that fits your budget. Not one price fits all in graphic design, I'm afraid – so the only way to know how much your project will cost is to ask.

If you need an event image by tomorrow because yours fell through – ask! If you don't understand the parameters you're asking me about – ask. I'm here to give you options. I can do whatever you ask, but every parameter and every skill comes at a price.

I can tell you that there is no base price because there is no base customer. Some clients want to be involved for every step, some don't; some need 17 choices and 3 rounds of edits, some don't; some have straightforward business concepts that easily translate visually, some don't. The price does NOT indicate lesser quality, but rather the amount of time and/or effort to reach a final product.

Payment

House of Leopold does require 50% payment at the contract of your project, and the remaining 50% at completion (or within 30 days).

Payments can be made online via PayPal (to Seth at sethjleopold@gmail.com) or Venmo (@Seth-Leopold). Please make your final payment within 30 days of project completion. You will receive an email with an invoice for your records.
