We love working on illustrations. Whether you're launching a new project, a new marketing campaign, or if you want to give a branded, polished look to an article or social media post, we'll work with you to design an illustration you love.

Illustrations help to showcase data, feelings or arguments to engage your audience, drawing their attention and making information stick. After we send you the first draft, you can give your feedback and our teams will polish the illustration. The final project will be timely delivered within the budget you've set.

At the heart of every project we work on is the SketchDeck team, dedicated to making sure you love the finished design. We're proud of our creativity, communication and agility. We've worked hard to build the teams we have today.

We pair this team with an innovative design delivery platform we built ourselves. It super-charges every project with rapid turnaround, transparent communication and impeccable organization.

There's a reason that marketing teams at top global brands like Spotify and Salesforce work with us time and time again for their designs: we elevate their brand, guard the quality of their design and make it effortless to kick off further engagements.

Whether you've worked with us a hundred times or are starting your first project, we're excited to have you on board!

“Thank you for taking this design further. Really happy with the way it looks. Modern, clean and an evolution to where we started and more aligned to what we discussed end of last year. Really happy with the direction we are taking.”

Our process

We'll take your initial content, help you develop it if necessary and then design it to create the best result for your brand. It's quick and easy to get started with us:

Learn more about the agile, high quality process we use to ensure project success.

1. Help you with your content (optional)

Great design starts with great content!

We can work with you from any starting point. If your content is final, we’ll go straight to design–but if you need assistance with content development, our team is ready to help.

Whether you need some light touch-ups or a deep rewrite, we'll devise a plan to make your content shine during your kick-off call.

2. Find your style

Our team will deliver a round of style samples. Samples allow you to see small previews of fully thought-out designs and help us determine together the best design direction for your project.

3. Iterate your way to success

Great design doesn’t just appear—it takes time to get it right. Your project quote won’t include a set number of iterations, but we find that it typically takes 1-2 sample iterations to nail down the overall style for a creative level project.

Once you're happy with the design direction, we'll apply it to your complete content and create your first full draft. You provide feedback on that, and after some edits your project is complete.

Example project prices

Every project begins with one of our project managers reviewing everything you've provided. You can request an initial quote in our platform and we'll provide you with a detailed quote and budget options.

Here are some example project prices, to help give you an idea of our pricing:

Examples from our portfolio

Design deliverables

Our design team will serve as an extension of your own throughout the process. We'll come alongside you and iterate based on feedback, from the first idea all the way through to the final design until you're satisfied that you have the best design.

Throughout the project, all files will be available for you to download. By the end you will have:

  • Online-shareable PDF
  • Print ready files
  • All design assets (e.g. illustrator file, image assets)

FAQ

How do I place my project?

It's easy to start: fill out the form on the right (or bottom, mobile-using friends!) and tell us about your project. Our team will get in touch ASAP. In a rush? You can start your project here.

How much will my project cost?

Project pricing is based on a few factors, including: project size and type, how quickly you need it (speed), and the level of design you require. We've included the range of prices this type of project typically comes in at, but as soon as you tell us a bit more about your project we'll give you a quote. We can also work hourly, if you'd prefer.

Does my content need to be final before starting a project?

We can work with your final content and design it, or we can help you develop your content and then design it. We're happy to help, whatever your needs!

Is my project kept confidential?

We work with companies of all sizes–from startups to Fortune 500 companies–and treat everyone with the same respect and consideration. Your project and information will always be kept confidential, unless express permission is given to share. All of our designers sign privacy agreements and the SketchDeck platform provides a secure login process, so only you and any colleagues you've invited have access to projects. If you still prefer to sign an NDA with us, though, we're more than happy to accommodate.

What if I'm not happy?

We'll do everything necessary to make you happy with our work – even if that means starting your project over again, bringing in extra designers for new ideas or upgrading your service at no extra cost. We never want to leave a client with a bad experience, and always put you first, before our own concerns. We stand by our client experience, always.
