What is 9Cube?
It has always been that good work comes at a price and not every client or brand is willing to spare that extra price for something even though it may be unique and brilliant. There are constraints from the clients and brands too, however, the person most affected by this is the artist, who either has to give in to the extensive changes and demands of the clients for a measly price, or else he loses the opportunity to work on something or a brand that could turn into something big soon enough.
What eventually tends to happen is that there is loss of quality from the original intent of the artist by the time a project reaches its fruition. With 9 Cube, a client can be assured of receiving a design or brand identity that we as an experienced team of creatives think is best for your brand at a minimal cost.
Really? How can you do that?
The entire concept of 9Cube is to 'Trust Thy Designer', which means that the client or brand can get their logos made starting AED 299, but however, the catch is that there are no changes, options or iterations allowed. In return, we assure the delivery of a sure-shot creative, which will make their brand stand out from the rest.
Do you make more than just logos?
Yes, definitely, the services we offer besides logos are Brand identity/Makeover, Publication Design, Web interface, UI/UX, Package Design, Outdoor media, Title design and animation, etc. However, a Logo is usually something which requires a lot of thought and although the scope of work is enormous, it's not expansive and unpredictable. Hence, giving it out at a fixed price is feasible. On the other hand, other creatives such as posters, UI/UX designs, website design, outdoor media are highly subjective and the scope of work may vary tremendously, hence a fixed price for the same is not workable. Nonetheless, we have two packages for most services, one would be a package in which the price we quote would not include changes and iterations and the other which would be priced higher (although still pretty affordable) would include changes and iterations.
How can you be so sure that the client would like the creatives?
Before starting off with our logo design process, we get in touch with our clients, supply them with logo/design requirement forms that would help us get a clear idea about what the client or brand has in their mind. We ask for references from them as well, which would help us get further insight. Only once we are confident of what the client needs, do we start off with the design. This does not assure that a client will love what we give them, but it will definitely reduce the chances of them being disappointed and having regretted trusting us in the first place.
But what the heck, we are offering logos for lesser than the price of a meal!
Who does the 9Cube team comprise of?
The 9Cube team comprises of the father and son designer-duo Yohan Wadia and Percy Wadia, together clocking over 40 years of experience in the field of Advertising and Graphic Design.
Percy having been in the industry for over 30 years, is a commercial art graduate from Sir JJ Institute of Applied Arts, Mumbai. He passed out in the year 1976. Since then he has being working with some of India's prime agencies such as Lowe Lintas, Creative Workshop, Raka, etc and has freelanced on several projects outsourced by other agencies as well. His list of clients include Jet Airways, HCC, Dukes, Herbetsons, Hoechst, DHL, The Leela Kempinski Group of Hotels, Onida, Mafatlal, Crompton Greaves, Adonis Pharmaceuticals, Sisco Research Laboratories, etc.
Yohan, guided by Percy is a self-trained designer, gave up studying after high-school, because he was way to infatuated with visuals. He started off his career at the age of 18 at Eyeqube studios (A post-production studio based in Mumbai) where he worked on the visual effects of several movies national and international, including Tron Legacy, Aladin, Veer and Don't Touch Me (A Cannes nominated animated short film). After quitting Eyeqube, he joint FX School (A media training institute in Mumbai) as a VFX and Graphic Design faculty and worked his way up to being the Head of Department for both the departments. Yohan has worked with several brands and clients including Asian Paints, Cineplay, Wear Your Opinion, Chulbul Tees, Wubu Apps, Stay66, etc of which the range of works scaled from designing UI/UX, logos, title design and animation, posters, merchandise, creative campaigns, brand identity, etc. Yohan also has a strong number of self-initiated projects that have been showcased at various exhibitions across the country and have been published in some of the leading national publications.
However, we plan to scale up our platform in the future and invite other designers to be a part of our community, where we can help them connect with prospective clients and brands and yet, they can be sure that they don't fall in the same pit as we did before we kick-started 9Cube.
