Studio

Who is Freight?

First and foremost, we're a team of tradesmen helping to spread messages for people who care about what they’re doing. This is at the center of everything we do.

There’s also another side to Freight, and it has to do with our personalities. While we’re in the business of spreading messages that aren’t our own, sometimes we want to participate in what’s being said. Sometimes we want to determine what the message is entirely.

Either way, we’re eager to build something with you.

 

What type of clients do you work with?

We are looking for fire. We are looking for people whose hearts are in the things they bring us. They are approaching their project with fresh eyes and open minds.

 

What's it like to work with Freight?

Magic. You bring us your problems and expectations and—poof—solutions materialize.

Not quite. But when you bring us your problems, we run at them. The magic happens because we have a process that frames our decisions. And because we are a small team, we thrive on communication. No filters. No hierarchy. No stuffy office managers. Just designers and clients working together.

 

Do you have a preferred design style?

We do not have a preferred design style. The opposite, actually. We work to apply a style that is appropriate for the project. We are always open to experimentation, so if you have an idea, we are excited to hear it.

 

Projects

How do you determine price?

Project depth, scope, timeline, and skill set requirements are all factors in determining price. No two projects are the same, and no two projects will cost the same.  But you’re definitely not paying for a receptionist to chat on Facebook 40+ hours/week, or for some fat-cat’s annual trip to Cabo.

 

What's the whole process like?

First things first, let’s get to know each other. We need to sit down together, discuss your project needs, and most importantly we both need to feel comfortable working together. You need to feel confident in handing us your project. We need to believe in you and your project.

Generally speaking, the phases we go through are discovery, design, development, implementation.

 

Do you build websites?

We design and develop small, promotional websites. For more complicated websites with big databases, we work with a development partner to make sure you get the features you need. 

 

Do you handle print production?

We can! In fact, we prefer to. We have preferred shops that we have tested and vetted over the years to make sure that you get the quality you're looking for. Plus, it pays to be a returning customer.

 

Do you have an ideal project?

Favorites are tricky. If you're excited, we will be, too. But we must admit that some things are easier to get excited about than others.  *cough* food, film, music, architecture *cough*
