Josh Kirkland
Creator, Visual Designer, Brand Builder
I'm a Visual Designer with over 20 years of experience. I've worked in digital marketing, SAAS, and online-fundraising over the last 6 years. I have a good grasp on fundamental Visual Design best practices for UI/UX, and have a solid understanding of HTML, CSS, & Javascript.

I have experience with wire-framing, researching, designing CMS themes & section types, and bug reporting in Jira. I've also worked in the real estate and multifamily industries as a senior web and graphic designer, in which I designed a responsive website for a national real estate brand which covered all of Southern California in both the luxury and general real estate markets. As well as websites, branding and print collateral for numerous property management companies and apartment complexes.

Print design is at my core and still brings me joy. I've done packaging, trade show displays, vehicle wraps and more. I attended The Art Institute of Seattle, School of Design majoring in Graphic Design.

I'm also fully versed in Adobe's Creative Cloud, including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I also have 4 years of experience with Sketch, Slack, InVision, Zeplin, TeamWork, Jira and Trello.

Here are a few answers to some questions you might have.
How much does a logo cost?
Our prices are dependent on the level of detail and excess of revisions. Contact us today to find out how we can save you money on your next logo or branding package. In many cases branding packages can offer more value. If you're looking to rebrand or launch a new business, a branding package would be the best choice. Ask us about these options.
How long does it take to build a website?
Their are many factors when talking about a website timeline. A typical 4-5 page website can take anywhere from 60-90 days to produce depending on the amount of content. Something to keep in mind is content curation. If you have all of the content ready for insertion, the process will be much faster. Another thing to think about is the revision process, revisions are something every website lifecycle experiences throughout its lifetime. Ideally we want to get to a point where we can launch when the website isn't perfect, but rather "good enough" because we can always make changes any time after the launch.
What is your hourly rate? Do you offer flat rates?
Our standard hourly design rate starts at $75 and is conditional. We do offer flat rates depending on the scope of the project. Ask us for details or contact us today to schedule a phone consultation.
What is branding?

If you have a new or existing business or product you're trying to bring to market, or just looking for a fresh start, contact us today to see how we can improve your business goals.
