FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why name the company BFTS (Boyz From The Shack)?
The roots of the company date back to 2005 where we started operating from a shack in Soweto-Meadowlands as we felt that our start-up capital would not be enough to foot the rental bill in the city, We traded as Dowhile Creatives for 7 years and in 2015 we decided to go back to our roots.
What is your design service and how will it benefit me?
We provide a professional graphic design and advertising design resource to our clients. BFTS professionals have over 12 years experience working on a wide range of design sectors including corporate, retail, and government bodies. We design for all mediums, taking into consideration future brand growth needs. Some of the most common design solutions include advertising, brand logo / visual identity, brochure, exhibition, packaging, direct mail, marketing, stationery and website design. Your company will benefit from having experienced design professionals applying intelligent marketing and design solutions to answer the brief presented.
What if I don’t like what you design?
This is rare. Sometimes we hit the nail on the head first time, sometimes it can take a number of discussions and design submissions before the client is happy with the concept. Ultimately we always ensure our clients walk away satisfied and we feel comfortable that we have put out a job to our highest standards within the confines of the timescale, brief and budget provided.
What are your prices?
The costs associated with the development of different materials vary greatly depending on the complexity of the piece and the production requirements involved. All of our clients are provided with a price estimate, which includes a break-down of the design time and the printing/production costs. If a project is urgent, we bill accordingly.
