Solutions & Pricing


Solution Cost Estimates

Our Goal: “Cost visibility and project investment should be clear for customers.” Our pricing is consistent with the lower price points of a niche design agency compared to larger full service agency firms.

We focus on core deliverable basics and return high value to our clients without a focus on booking hours of research to confirm the obvious.

Our magazine publisher consulting capabilities and strategy approach in full phase project engagements help publishers with critical digital strategy elements. We spend more time with full consulting phase projects and the addition of the digital strategy to design and development project scope work typically increases project cost 10k.

Our design solutions focus on the importance of revenue generation to return the publisher redesign and/or CMS upgrade investment as well as the audience growth that ultimately fuels magazine brand growth.  Proper design produces a positive visitor experience, conversion, and enables advertiser value elements.

Startups & New Publications | Support Services $ 2,500/mo.+

We understand our full-service projects are outside the budget capabilities of new magazine startups.  Contact us for a monthly service program and guidance into basic revenue focused operations.  We can help you take the first steps toward profitability.

Established Small – Large Publishing Groups | 20 – 50K+ Projects

Our web design, content management system (CMS) and digital magazine (Vertical Editions) solutions for magazine publishers are provided in a full service partnership during 1-3 month engagements. We understand larger publishing group teams have specific requirements for digital experience improvement. We provide quotes for each project assignment and are happy to collaborate with publishing team members during each phase of the project.

We also provide ongoing monthly services for publishers for web content design, site administration, enewsletters, digital media kits, ad platform administration and digital editions.

Properly designed publisher solutions include a publishing business strategy for immediate and NEW digital revenue to the publisher which exceeds the full solution investment plus audience experience improvement and magazine growth opportunities. – David Blankenship

Existing publishing business model conversion and other full service option additions increase total proposal quotations.  There is no software cost for open source CMS solutions and fees are based on configuration, theming, content structure and customizations.
