frequently asked questions


WHO IS BURRELL?
it's my married name! i love it and chose to make my business my name sake. my husband has always been and continues to be the biggest supporter of my creative endeavors and i love that my name gives him some credit too! 

WHY DO YOU DO WHAT YOU DO?
i love to ask this question at the beginning of a branding project and love sharing my answer with clients. this work gives me joy. creating visual identities makes my heart beat fast. i love bringing a visual order to new brands or working to give existing brands a new direction. working with people to give what they're passionate about an identity is so much fun to me. i feel really blessed to be able to partner with people in this way and create things. branding is such a buzzy word, but i don't feel like chasing a passion or dream is trendy at all. i think that dreams are extremely valid and should be pursued. 

HOW LONG DO CUSTOM PROJECTS TAKE?
such a tricky question! short answer: it's different for every project. long answer: i can give you an estimate on about how long each step of a project takes me- but it is just that, an estimate. it all depends on the scope of your project and how quickly we can work together towards our deliverables. rushed projects are accepted on occasion- email me if your timeline is sensitive and we can work it out. 

HOW MUCH IS X, Y, OR Z?
i choose not to put my prices online. every project is different (one of the many reasons i love what i do!). design projects are all unique and i believe pricing should reflect that. this work gives me joy and i'll meet you where you are. email me, let's chat!

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AND DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO I CAN VISIT?
i am based in nyc, but have worked with clients all over (even across the pond!). i love a good long distance relationship. i do have a studio, but it's also my apartment (hi nyc!). i don't take meetings at home, but am happy to meet you in your neighborhood or take a walk in the park. if you aren't local, we'll communicate through skype, facetime, phone calls, and emails!
