Only 2 client seats left.
Firstly, we pride ourselves on our efficiency and focus. We deliver 80% of the value with 20% of the effort, which means that we can work quickly and remain focused on achieving results.
Secondly, we believe in speaking our minds and keeping our clients in check. Sometimes, employees may feel uncomfortable about speaking up, but we do not have that issue. As we are not dependent on any single client, we can express our opinions in a respectful manner without fear of negative consequences.
Finally, we are more than just a service provider. With over a decade of experience, we have the expertise to be a valuable thought partner. We are not only here to complete projects, but also to contribute to strategy and decision making.
Hourly rates? Nah, we're all about value, not clock-watching. Our packages are focused on delivering results, not counting minutes. In fact, speed is our ally – the quicker we get it done, the more valuable it is for you. Expect updates or task completions every 2-3 days.
Also, don't worry, we're not spreading ourselves thin. We keep our client list short and sweet, giving you the VIP treatment. Your project gets the love and attention it truly deserves.
We specialize in digital product design, namely UI, UX, and Brand Design. So far we've designed dozens of apps for both web and mobile. Our capabilities cover the entire design process, from product strategy to high-fidelity interface design. We love a good challenge. Try us.
We're partners in your journey, not just service providers. We become embedded in your team, take ownership, and self-organize to deliver on projects that help achieve business goals. We're also a membership-based studio, meaning we have a limited number of seats. This allows us to focus on giving each client the best experience possible.
Our price is a reflection of the value we're confident we can provide. A senior designer costs around $140k/yr (+taxes). We can provide the same service (or even better) for less than half that cost.
Absolutely! If you come across a talented designer that fits your needs, we encourage you to bring them on board. We're rooting for our designer friends. However, finding top-notch talent can be difficult and time-consuming. Even if you do find the right fit, there's a lot to deal with - paperwork, taxes, labor laws, etc. It can be quite a hassle. On the other hand, we're ready at a moment's notice (if we still have seats available).
Contrast Studio was founded by Calin, a designer with over a decade of experience. Most of the work is done by him. When necessary, we expand our bandwidth and capabilities with the help of other designers.
Definitely! In fact, we require a call before we take on a client. Please book an initial consultation to get started.
