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.
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.
