Rent Your Brain, Reduce the Pain:
Aligning Professional Design Skills

As a Design Professional, you are increasingly challenged to determine the right services, fees and business structures for your design firms or studios. Designers are out priced by online services, online shopping and misunderstandings of what professional design services include.
