A SPARK realizes that one of the biggest responsibilities is hiring an employee. An employee depends on their employer for everything from the roof over their head to the clothes on their back to the food on their table. We take pride in our work and pride ourselves on having the highest ethics possible. Because of this we also realize we are not in a position to hire anyone full-time at this moment.
Our vision is to move toward that capability, with each step firmly planted on solid ground.

We are adapting to what we learned in 2011.
2011, we had a client bounce a check and make us run around to collect the balance, make all kinds of promises of promoting A SPARK, in exchange for rate discounts, never keeping their end of the bargain, a client that stated they were ready to move forward on a project, only to not get a response to our e-mails and phone calls for over 3 months. And that was just one client.
Our 2013 Terms:
1. Any work under $1,000. is prepaid. Work does not begin until the check clears.
2. Any work over $1,000. is 50% down and the remaining 50% is due immediately upon completion.
3. All work is by contract only. Download a Sample AIGA Contract
(A simple e-mail or a formal contract will be at our discretion)
4. All printing and custom products are prepaid.
5. The minute it is determined that a client is talking nonsense to a representative of A SPARK, typically to be misleading or deceptive, all work is stopped immediately, and the balance due for the work in progress, is due.
Our 2013 Rates:
1. Graphic design = $50.00 per hour
2. Video & 3D Animation = $100.00 per hour
3. Web Site Design & SEO = $50.00 per hour
4. Custom Signs = Cost vary (quantity & quality of materials)
5. Estimates = $50.00 per hour, credited toward the project.
6. Archive retrieval = $25.00 per project
7. DVD Duplication & Desktop Publishing = $25.00 per hour
We are not in the business of making lowball estimates, if quality is your last consideration your barking up the wrong tree.
