HEADQUARTERED IN PDX, WORKING GLOBALLY
Proudly anchored in the Pacific Northwest, our consulting & design work extends far beyond our evergreen borders. West Coast to East, even over in Africa, our work is making a difference where it is needed most.
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 short-term projects and longer-term engagements:
>> 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) at our hourly rate. This also applies if you're doing soul-searching of your own and want to explore a more purposeful career path. We'd love to help point you in the right direction. Reserve 1, 5, or 10 hour blocks of on-demand consulting time.
>> 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. Most projects start at 20 hours and go up from there. Have a project in mind? Let's talk.
>> Rolling Retainer -- Many of our longer-term relationships find it most convenient to start with a fixed project, and then evolve into a monthly or quarterly retainer relationship. This 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 or design work? Let's map it out together.
>> Interim "CMO/Marketing Director" -- For clients without a current marketing director or CMO-type, or not yet large enough to payroll a marketing FTE, we can bridge that gap. For 3-6 months, or so, we can serve as an embedded, yet interim, member of your team to develop strategy and design/write a suite of marketing tools. Then, before our time is up, we can help recruit, interview, and train a rockstar to take the reins from there. Note: this can be a virtual/remote role, as needed. Shall we schedule coffee to explore this further?
>> Pro Bono -- Given our nimble size, and the fact that we already offer an extremely fair rate for nonprofits, we are not currently taking pro-bono or gratis assignments at this time. That said, if we're not the right fit at this time, we can most likely point you in the right direction of someone who is. Drop us a line.
