How We Work

Get started quickly

We can usually start a new project within a few days. With repeated engagements, we become efficient with your brand’s standards and goals in mind. For a premium rate, we can turn work fast to make a necessary deadline.

Engage per project

No commitments or retainers needed—pay for each project as you go. For high-volume or enterprise-level clients, alternate engagement models may be available.

Understand costs

SAM-LAB provides an estimate at the start of every project. We’ll only bill for actual hours worked and make sure that budgets remain on track. We have a great record of finishing projects under the initial estimate.

We work in project-based teams

Every project team has multiple creative and administrative members to perform and oversee the work

This team works together to ensure that projects are delivered on time, on budget, and with the best results. With repeated engagements, we build a core team that becomes a familiar, trusted partner. Projects are assigned to designers based on their past experience working with particular sub-brands and people. If we’ve had a successful partnership in the past, we’ll look to replicate that experience.
