One of our aims for establishing our creative communities is for members to network and collaborate to achieve success in various areas of their businesses. In that regard, we are throwing open an opportunity for members of #FashionBizRoom and #CreativeBuildersRoom to own a website and/or logo for their businesses. If you want to design a logo and/or website for your business but do not have enough fund for them, reach out to us and we will work with our associates – graphic and web designers to design a logo and/or website that reflect(s) a good image of your business/company. These will be executed at half the cost of the normal rate. We will also help you to manage the website at a subsidized rate (if you also require this service).
Having a good business logo and website is good for your and your business’ reputation, and a good reputation always sells.
