Hello! Welcome to Digital Fate Creative’s (aka DF8) home on the Web. You’re probably here for one of many reasons:
1. You’ve come to learn all about our fantastorama client services.
2. You’ve come to get more information about one of our top-notch mobile apps.
3. You landed here by fate. Yes, fate led you to us.
4. You’ve heard about Digital Fate Creative’s unmatched digital media services, and you wanted to find out more. You’ve come to the right place.
Here’s a little bit of information about Digital Fate Creative’s professional services:
We can, and do create or capture almost anything imaginable within the digital realm. Our specialties include:
- Mobile App Development and Deployment
- Project Management
- Website Design/Development and Maintenance
- Vector Based Illustration
- Art Design and Development for Digital and Print Media
- Corporate ID Solutions
- 2D and 3D Digital Animation and Video/Sound Editing
- Digital Image Manipulation and Editing
- Content Development
- System Support and Training
Our number one goal is to create a solution that exceeds your expectations. Our specialty lies in thinking beyond the edges of the box by first defining them, the goal and the target market, and then we remold the paradigm. Digital Fate Creative will develop solutions based on your digital media needs. Though we rarely have to look beyond our own in-house talent, we will consult or contract with one of our peers or another vendor if there are elements of the project that are beyond our scope. While this does not happen very often, we will do what is necessary to exceed your expectations.
Digital Fate Creative does create programs and products that we sell commercially via our development branch, Digital Fate Labs; however, this does not have a negative impact on our client’s projects. Actually, to the contrary; because we create systems, products and programs for commercial sale, we are constantly learning new methods and techniques and we’re staying in-tune with the digital media industry. In turn, we apply this experience to create the very best for our clients. All of our projects; in-house and client, are managed by seasoned project managers, and ultimately, our clients always come first.
Our fees are generally project based. We complete a full assessment of your needs via customized questionnaires that you fill out to give us the information we need to provide a quote to you. There is no charge for this, as we can’t tell you what it will take until we know what you want. After acceptance of the quote, there is a one-third project start fee. The remainder is not due until you are satisfied and we’ve delivered the product to you.
Of course, quotes are just that. They are estimations of the work required based on the development treatment. If the treatment changes, or additional work is required based on the client’s request, there will be additional fees. Once a project has begun, we take every opportunity to keep the client informed and involved along the way. Clients must approve every change and there is never a unknown fee tacked on at the end. If you would like to start the process online, please register for an account. After approval, you will be able to login and complete a project assessment.
Projects come in all shapes and sizes. No project is the same as another, so we will create a timeline based on our experience and in conjunction with your project treatment. This will include all applicable milestones and expected delivery date. Like fees, timelines are subject to be updated based on treatment changes.
Though we have extremely talented digital photographers on staff, Digital Fate Creative is not a Photography/Videography Studio, nor are we general photography/videography professionals. Therefore, when a project has a required photo and/or live action video element, we contract with trusted partners that are professionals in their respective field. We also have many colleagues that we can refer you to that provide these services if we are unable to meet the high-standards we insist on for every project. If the event in question requires a specialized touch due to specialized circumstances (for example underwater, in-flight, or extreme locations), we are happy to review the requirements with our partners and provide a quote.
We are not an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Web Hosting Solution. We design, develop and deploy the websites and supporting elements that are housed with your ISP. Again, we have trusted sources that we work with for these services and, if necessary, we will help you find a provider that meets your needs.
We do provide videotape and/or slide/film conversion or archiving! While this is not the focus of our business, we are required to perform such transfers regularly for our various projects (for example, when developing a web video archive). Because of this, we have the tools and talent to transfer many types of tape media to a digital format, or provide a digital archive for you. However, tape and film media can be very fragile depending on it’s condition and age, and we do not want to do any further damage to your media by putting them through standard transfer procedures. As such, we require that you sign a release of liability and consent form for these services.
