Mike Merg Illustration & Design — A Chicago Based Creative Studio


Q: I'd like you to do some work for me. What's the best way to get things rolling?

A: The best way to get things rolling is to send us an email. You can either use the contact form on this site or you can send an email to MikeMerg@gmail.com — Once we receive your message, we'll be in touch to gather more info if necessary, or set up a good time to chat about the project details.

Q: What size / type of projects do you take on?

A: Pretty much any and all if we have the time and interest. We're trained in just about every aspect of the industry & have partners we work with which allow us to cover a large majority of the design spectrum. We've also worked with a wide variety of clients: From marketing campaigns for companies like Nike & Coke, to branding projects for one-person startups and everywhere in between. Feel free to contact us with any questions regarding a potential project. For more info, you can take a look at our services page.

Q: I'm not anywhere near Chicago, can you still do some work for me?

A: Absolutely — we do, and have done work for clients all over the globe. Meeting in person is awesome but not essential to the creative process. Thankfully, we live in an era of communication which allows us to expand our work outside of the Chicago market without traveling. In addition to many clients thru out Illinois and the remaining US, we've also worked with clients in Toronto, and the UK.

Q: How much do you charge?

A: Every project is unique, and requires an individual estimate based on a large number of variables like scope, turnaround time, etc. Without knowing the full details, it's difficult to judge how much a certain project might cost. The best way to calculate cost is to send us an email with as much information about the project as possible. At that point, we should be able to give you a price range or let you know if there's any more info we need to make an accurate estimate. If you have a particular budget / turnaround date you are working with, we can often work something out.

Q: How long will this project take to complete?

A: Again, every project calendar is different and depends on a large number of interchanging variables including the project's budget, desired turnaround, our current schedule, etc. Once we know the full details, we should be able to give an accurate time estimate.

Q: Are you taking on new projects / clients?

A: Definitely. We're always open to the possibility of new projects and clients. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like us to take on some work for you.
