Why am I being charged so much?

August 21, 2022

Damn that's expensive!

I should just get my nephew to design it. Go ahead! You know what I have to say to that? Go ahead, You wouldn't be my ideal client. Because anyone who is truly serious about building a well designed and functional mobile app or web app must understand that product design is expensive, and there are a number of reasons why. Some of these are purely arbitrary, but there are many key reasons why you can't just go out there and expect someone to design an app for you for $1000 or even $5000 and call it a day.

Designing a new product or service is not just about creating a pretty picture. When you think about it, the entire process involves creative thinking, business strategy, and user experience (UX) design—all of which require a lot of time and effort from professionals with years of experience in those fields.

For example, if you're designing an app for the first time, it's going to take longer than usual because the designer needs to learn about your industry and market before they can create something truly groundbreaking. It also means that they need to understand how users interact with their phones on a daily basis so that they can create something intuitive enough for people to use without effort (or even thinking).

Then there's branding. If you want your product to stand out from its competitors' offerings in any way at all then branding is critical—and this means working closely with designers who know how to brand effectively while still creating something sleek enough that people will want it on their phones or computers. You also have to consider that there are many different types of designers out there, each with their own set of skillsets and specialties. If you're looking for a designer who specializes in mobile games or interface design, you'll need someone with those skillsets—and they aren't going to come cheap!

Finally, most designers work on an hourly basis or per project basis because they are professionals; they should be compensated for their expertise and experience just like any other expert would be compensated for their knowledge base and expertise!

Above all, remember that good design is worth paying for. If you want something done right, hire the right people to do it. Ultimately, this will save you money in the long run. And if the quality of a product fails to impress your customers or clients, they won't be happy, and their dissatisfaction might extend beyond just the product to you. You wouldn't want that to happen now, would you?
