Add Minds On Design Lab to your team.  Our Website Management and our Fractional Design Team plans will instantly boost your creative and strategic capacity.

Fractional Design Team

Are you a small and mighty team with a long design wishlist? Are your branded materials not consistent or matching the quality of your good work? Are you wasting valuable time finding quality partners or doing design work yourself?

Adding us as your fractional design team is a great way to build your creative capacity to meet these challenges and more in a cost effective way. We include creative direction alongside a team with a wide range of design and web expertise. You get both design leadership and execution for just the right amount of work you need, often for less than the cost of a single full-time hire.

Pricing starts at $3,000 per month.

What you’ll see with our fractional design team

  • Consistency and Quality: As brand stewards, we help your design projects deliver a consistent brand expression, everywhere.
  • Expertise: Creative direction and execution to address branding, annual reports, fundraising event and campaign collateral, web design and development, and more. Our focus on supporting teams in the social sector enhances our speciality. Partnership with common tools including Mailchimp, Fundraise Up, Givebutter, along with deep knowledge of email marketing personalization, and data integration with Zapier and Make are important extras.
  • Efficiency and Focus: No repetitive and time consuming project administration approvals, vendor onboarding, and costly acclimation efforts. Free up your team to focus on what they do best—serving your mission—while we handle the design work, from strategy to execution with deep knowledge of your mission and brand.
  • Flexible yet Predictable Budgeting: Simple and predictable monthly billing. Flexibility to revise our plans to accommodate new or changing needs.
  • Communication: Regular video check-ins to coordinate our efforts. These provide opportunities to consider strategy, proactively share ideas, and prioritize collaboratively.
  • Exclusivity and Dedication: We take on a limited number of fractional clients. We ensure each organization we commit to receives our full attention, responsiveness, and dedication to their mission.

As a showcase of what our fractional design team can do, here is a collection of work we have completed recently - with just one client. These projects became a reality because we were working as a dedicated and integrated part of the team.

Who our Fractional Design Team is best for

Our Fractional Design Team model is especially beneficial for:

  • Growing Organizations. You are a small team with growing impact that needs to expand your capabilities.
  • Leadership Longing for a Team. Often you have a communications and/or fundraising lead on staff. They have great ideas, but are held back by not having creative minds to work through and bring their ideas to life.
  • Budget Conscious. Perfect for those who need expert input but can’t justify or afford a full-time creative director let alone a design team.
  • Focus on Brand Consistency. You want to ensure that every aspect of your organization's public image is consistent and polished.
  • Building Trust Through Design. You aim to strengthen relationships. You value the role beautifully designed communications can play in doing that.
  • Organizations with annual design needs. Each year you might have a major event/gala, annual report, an end of year campaign, or more.
