Hi there,

My graphic artist is very good. She works from her home which makes her extremely reasonable in price. She designed my label and currently does free lance work for many reputable companies, including Christopher R. Coppola. Please give her a look!

Attached is a sample of the label she did for my bottle. I am sure she would be happy to send you a pdf of her work.

Her name is Marian.

Good Luck!

First, you should recognize that developing a brand name is one job, while designing a logo is another; and designing labels is yet another. While they are related, it's important to recognize the different skills required in each area.

If you hire a large agency, they'll likely have all the skills in-house. This will be an ad agency, marketing company, design agency, or "branding" agency, to use a few common terms. These agencies can range in size from a few people up to giant firms with hundreds or thousands of staff members.

These large firms will charge anywhere from $10,000 to $50,000 (or more) for your "identity package" of all the items you listed above. For a typical smaller firm (20 employees or less) it could be more in the range of $8,000 to $15,000. The exact amount will depend on the parameters you set. If you simply go to these companies and ask "how much" they may well quote a higher amount. The reason is that your questions suggest you don't have much familiarity with how these agencies work; hence, they'll include "client education" in their price, although they probably won't tell you this. You might think this is elitist or unfair of them, but it's a fact of the design business that working with someone who knows the process is more cost-efficient; working with clients who aren't familiar with the process requires more time and hand-holding.

An alternative is to use a separate "naming" company that specializes in coming up with names. I'm somewhat dubious of these companies, as it seems their method is often to come up with a few thousand names and hope something sticks, for a hefty fee.

A more cost-effective approach would be to use individual designer who also does naming. The best approach here is to look at a lot of portfolios; find a style you like, and then begin a conversation.

Keep in mind that opening with "how much" is kind of like asking how much a car costs before you set foot on the lot. What kind of car do you want? What kind of name do you want? What is your expectation for the style and quality of the logo and label? If you're willing to do some of this "homework" you can expect a smoother process and a more exact price.

Disclaimer: I have run a small graphic design agency for some 20 years and have participated in the naming process, corporate identity development, and numerous design projects of all kinds.
