HEADQUARTERED IN PORTLAND (OR), WORKING GLOBALLY
We are proudly anchored in the Pacific Northwest, but our consulting & design work extends far beyond our evergreen borders.
WAYS TO WORK TOGETHER
We understand not everyone is looking for a long-term "agency of record" relationship, nor has the budget to fund it. So we're flexible with how we structure our work together. Here are a few ways we work with our clients on both a short-term and longer-term basis:
>> Hourly Consulting + Coaching -- If you need some quick advice, a sounding-board to bounce thinking off of, or are just looking a fresh perspective, we are happy to schedule an informal consulting / coaching session (either in person or virtually), and bill at our hourly rate. This also applies if you're doing some soul-searching of your own and want to explore a more purposeful career path. We'd love to help and point you in the right direction. Reserve 1, 5, or 10 hour blocks of ad-hoc consulting.
>> Project-Based -- Our most common way of working together is project-based, where we agree to a scope-of-work, timeline, and not-to-exceed budget. Once we discuss priorities, tasks, and deliverables, we're happy to put together a proposal to get things rolling. Interested in collaborating? Let's talk.
>> Rolling Retainer -- Many of our longer-term relationships find it's most convenient to start with a fixed project, and then can evolve into a monthly retainer model. This often provides greater flexibility to consult across a range of needs and deliverables over three-, six-, or twelve-month periods. Once we determine the full scope of needs, we will estimate a not-to-exceed range of hours each month, track our time, and provide monthly invoicing. Looking for ongoing consulting? Let's map it out together.
>> Interim "Marketing Director" -- For clients without a current marketing director or CMO-type, or not yet large enough to payroll a full-time benefited salary, we can bridge that gap. For the next 3-6 months, or so, we can be an embedded yet interim member of the team, helping to develop strategy and design and/or write a suite of marketing tools. Then before our time is up, we can work with you to recruit, interview, and train a rockstar to take the reins from there. Note: this can absolutely be a virtual role if needed. Shall we schedule coffee to explore this further?
>> Pro Bono -- Given our nimble size, and the fact that we already offer a fair, discounted rate for nonprofits, we're not currently taking pro bono assignments at this time. That said, if we're not the right fit at this time, we most likely can recommend someone who is. So drop us a line.
