Choose a plan that meets your needs.
So if I subscribe today, make a design request, I'll get it in 2 days?
Generally, yes! Note that larger requests can take longer. If your request is "build me a twenty page website" it’ll get broken down into smaller chunks, but even on a large request, you'll see progress every two days or so.
How do I make requests?
After you subscribe, you'll get onboarded onto a design board where you’ll add requests. There you can start adding requests, which can be in pretty much any format. So you could drop in a live Google Doc with a list of your needs, or send a Loom video (great tool for recording and sending tasks).
Why not hire a designer / photographer / agency?
Agencies, photographers, full-time designers are much more expensive and can be difficult to manage.
We’ve also rolled these services into a single product — with the goal of accelerating your web and portfolio needs. By working with ARKO, you'll save a lot of money while getting world-class design, photography or both!
Is there a limit to how many requests I can have?
Unlimited requests! Once subscribed, you're able to add as many design requests to your queue as you'd like, and they will be delivered one by one.
What if I only have a single request?
That’s fine, you can pause your subscription and bank the remaining days for later. If you think you have a unique use case, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How does the "Pause" feature work?
Just like it sounds: you can pause your membership and save the remaining days to use later. This is great if you only have a couple projects to shoot, or if you just need a little bit of design work.
Billing cycles are based on 30-day period, so let’s say you used our service for 20 days, and then decided to pause. You’ve already paid for the month and you’ll have 10 days of service to be used in the future when you’re ready again.
How does the "Project Shoot" add-on work?
With a membership, you can get your projects photographed anywhere in the world, à la carte. We work with local photographers and then do all the processing in-house — so that all of the photos have the same high-polish architectural quality.
So let’s say you order 5 shoots. Some of the shoots will be ready in a couple days, and some shoots might take longer depending on the locale. When the raw photos/footage is available, you'll get a notification and we can begin processing. Note that shoots don’t count against your request limit, but processing and editing those raw shoots into finished footage will require a request.
How many shoots can I do in a month?
With a membership, you can order as many shoots as you want. The shoot itself doesn’t count as a request until its time to process the photos. So if you ordered 20 shoots, you'd likely get most of the RAW files back in a week or so. Processing them into finished photos will take a couple days per set, so realistically 20 shoots might take two months to get the finished and processed photos back.
Do you work with non-architectural companies?
Yes! While we do have some specialization in the architectural supply community, we’ll work with most any company in any industry. In addition to firms within the architecture industry, we have clients ranging from philanthropic foundations to event manufacturers, to land planners.
Are there any refunds if I don't like the service?
Yes, if you choose to cancel service, you will receive a refund for the remainder of your unused time for the month.
