Historic Preservation

Cymatium works to research and document historic structures to the highest level. We have a real desire to remain true to the philosophical basis for historic preservation. Aaron doesn't compromise or change the facts to create a false history. All of our work will be tailored to your needs.

All work is written and proofed by the staff. Written documents, outside of National Register Nominations, will be bound with photographs and a full graphical treatment.

Therefore, a cost assessment is difficult. Basic assumptions should be based on a price range of $50 an hour. Travel expenses should be factored into the cost, but they will vary by needs. Photography, historic research copies, binding, and document production will all be part of the cost. Simple house histories may be under $500, while complex structure analysis and documentation may be much more expensive. Historic design and planning can only be assessed on a case by case basis.

Web Design

Cymatium works to create innovative and creative graphic interfaces. Although many nonprofit organizations represent themselves as conservative organizations, Cymatium is committed to showing that these organizations can be well established and trusted but still have an edge that today's society demands.

All of Cymatium's work is done on Macintosh computers using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and Macromedia Dreamweaver.

Web Consulting is an expensive proposition. Because we are a small company with little overhead, we can offer less expensive alternatives. Although you can expect upwards of $75 to $100 an hour depending on the job from other companies, our nonprofit customers can expect a cost of $35 an hour (with a $10 in-kind contribution for text or photographs). This figure includes photo manipulation, page layout, text entry and consultation, travel, or other person-to-person interaction. The prices will remain the same throughout the length of your project. Our travel costs are generally half of the price per hour. Certain details will often have to be specific to the organization or company.
