Frequently Asked Questions
Who owns the work you create for us?
You do. And that’s part of our plain English contract with you. You maintain all Intellectual Property Rights. Any digital assets we use on your behalf from third parties are assigned to you. Any Creative Commons work is sourced for your legal protection as well.
Where is your company headquartered?
Flying Pig Brand LLC is a Meridian, Mississippi-based company. We have close ties to Livingston, Alabama, home of The University of West Alabama, where some of our best designers are trained.
We work 24/7. Does your staff work on weekends?
Doesn’t everyone? Actually, our delivery schedules are based on a five-day workweek, Monday-Friday, excluding major holidays. We like our time off and think you should, too.
I like to save money. Do you offer discounts?
We believe in the foundation of local, community support. If you're a member in good standing of your local Chamber of Commerce, we offer a 20% discount for as long as you use our service.
Can I get a refund if we are unhappy?
We do business differently. You have the right to unlimited design revisions, and if you are ever unhappy with your design team leader or the work itself, we can assign you to a new team. Ultimately, though, if we can’t make you happy, we don’t want your money, and we would happily refund any unused time.
What is the best way to communicate with you?
Experience shows that written communication produces the highest quality work in the least amount of time. You can always reach your design team leader, and, of course, you will have the private cell phone numbers for Greg and Weldon, the design masters behind everything we produce at Flying Pig Brand.
What if I don’t have enough work to send your way?
Use us as much as you like. If your design manager sees you struggling with taking full advantage of our services, he or she will contact you with some options that will keep your company moving forward. We don’t want your money if you can’t benefit from our services.
What if I plan to order a lot of big projects in one month and drop you like a hot potato?
Go ahead, give us a try. This is not our first rodeo. We know something that you may not: after you experience the success of the pieces we build for you, you’ll discover you have even more needs, such as social media campaigns, A/B web testing, brochures, more business cards. You get the idea. We’re here for you for the long-term.
What if I have an emergency need?
What if I hate the designs?
What about web hosting?
You’ve mentioned The University of West Alabama several times. Are my designs being completed by students?
Your design team leader is a working professional working at least full time in the industry. He or she has earned at least an undergraduate degree in integrated marketing communications or an equivalent specialty. Your team members are trained by Greg and/or Weldon, Flying Pig Brand’s CEO and President, respectively, to solve your most wicked design problems. Nothing leaves our office without their approval. Team members may or may not be design students, based on the complexity of your needs. However, in every case, you will receive commercial quality work from our designers. We only hire the best students, typically second semester juniors and seniors, with proven track records for commercial work in their own right. They’d rather work for us than work at Subway® or the university cafeteria, for example, so they can build their personal portfolios, creating a win-win-win arrangement for everyone.
OK, what's the catch? What's not free?
Stationery and custom imprinted specialties are not free—although will be happy to design work to send to your imprinters. Through one of our sister companies, we can provide just about anything imaginable, at less than book prices. They have a catalog of over 500,000 items, including shirts, pens, coffee mugs, USB cards, and display signage. Honesty, the list of available imprintables is nearly overwhelming. We encourage you to check with us before ordering elsewhere.
Web hosting is not free. We offer affordable, lightning-fast web hosting as a donation to the UWA IMC Foundation at a rate of $40/month. Our sites are tested and proven to load in less that two seconds. Guaranteed. Our personal goal is to get them to load in roughly a second, and unless your content needs are excessive, we can usually accomplish this for you, too. You get tons of free services when you use them for hosting, and everything is redundantly backed up, so you’ll never have to worry about your site disappearing or getting hacked.
Web designs with shopping carts solutions are available at an additional cost.
While we create competitively-priced, commercial quality videos and radio spots, from 30-seconds to an hour long, these are at an additional cost. Check with your team leader for more information.
Why do you offer this weird pricing model?
In addition, fixed billings permit us to hire some of the best student designers in the world from The University of West Alabama at above minimum wage, so they don’t have to subsidize their university schooling by working part-time, soul-stealing jobs at fast food joints or retail outlets. This model allows them to build their portfolios while getting real world experience on real client work, all carefully supervised by some of the most experienced designers and media design management experts in the industry. Greg, for example, has been doing design work since 1982 and national agency work since 1994.
Finally, we offer this entry-level design model, so small to medium businesses can compete with the big boys in their respective industries. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Business Employment Dynamics, only about 80% of businesses with employees will survive their first year in business. And the numbers get even more depressing. Only about 30% of businesses will survive their 10th year in business. While many entrepreneurs are good at services and selling, they don’t really understand branding or marketing, and by the time they get banged around by real life experience, it’s often too late for them to recover. That’s why you need Flying Pig Brand, an expert team on your side.
