Prices depend on many variants, but you can be sure you are getting a great value for your design project. Depending on the length and complexity of the job, design jobs are charged by the hour or day. Typical graphic design projects are £75/hr or £550/day. We also bill in 15min increments for web work. If you have small changes to a pre-existing file that takes 5 min for a quick update, we will charge the min amount of £35. You won’t find that with some of our competitors. We encourage prospective clients to compare CandyClic Creative with agencies producing the same level of work.
Of course we are open to discussing bespoke project pricing.
During our initial project design meeting, we first begin by discussing the client’s ideas, target market, and uses for the design. We then ask for samples of existing designs that the client likes or dislikes to get an idea of their taste. Sometimes the client already has a design concept in mind. Other times, they have no idea what they want. Either way, we make sure we have collected enough information before we begin work. Our design service is very straight forward. If you’d like to see extra concepts after our initial three ideas or if you have complex design requirements our service can be priced according to your needs.
No, not the actual artwork files unless agreed upon in the proposal. However, ALL approved assets and high resolution images purchased are 100% yours once the project is fully complete and paid for, and you have a perpetual, worldwide license to use the assets.

1. Video is 700% more effective than image content on social media
2. Video is 2200% more effective than pure text content
3. The ROI on non-video content continues to go down
4. 90% of blue chip organisations’ online content is NON-video, yet views, shares and engagement of videos exceeds that of all other content
5. 43% of US companies intend to reduce or cancel traditional content marketing in the next two years
6. 80% of video viewers recall the video, its message and the brand 30 days later

B. Time: it takes two to sixteen weeks to produce a video.
Organisations need content in order to retain the engagement and brand recognition of their clients’, former clients and target market. However, there are 365 days of potential content marketing needs, and not all content is created equal. CandyClic Creative videos are designed as quality, accurate and topical videos
The payment method is a 50% upfront payment and a final 50% payment after the video is completed and approved by the client. They payment options are Wire transfer and Paypal.

Our staff are made up of both ASD members and neurotypical members, new program participants spend their days with a mix of classroom time and on the job experience next to dedicated, gifted and professional designers. Over the two year course, the participants spend gradually less time in class and more time in working on client projects alongside the experienced creators.
Of course we are open to discussing bespoke project pricing.
Around 1.5% of the UK population are on the Autism spectrum, in the UK that works out to around 750,000 people. Unfortunately, they are amongst the most isolated, and discriminated groups in society; unemployment is over 85%, this leads to increased social isolation, low self esteem, and a reliance on inadequate state handouts. Our intention is to offer people with autism the chance to work within a real studio with the outcome goal of long term employment and financial security.
CandyClic Creative is a social enterprise organisation set up under the legal structure of Community Interest Company for the purposes of identifying, training and mentoring young adults with ASD in digital 2D design and production during a two year program. In addition to the creative skills they will be taught, work and social skills all within a real working environment. The participants will progress to working on live client projects and earn an income commensurate with typical market levels.
The attainment of these valuable skills and experiences in a real working studio supported, mentored and provided in a safe and flexible environment will conclude after the program with a Progression Pathway Plan. Individual plans will be developed in conjunction with the participant, his or her family/guardian and will aim to place each participant in another studio, as a supported freelance artist or remain as an employee of CandyClic Creative.
The UK Government definition of social enterprise: “Businesses with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners.”
A community interest company (CIC) is a type of company introduced by the United Kingdom government in 2005 under the Companies (Audit, Investigations and Community Enterprise) Act 2004, designed for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good.
A CIC must also comply with the requirements of company law in general, and accordingly must file annual accounts and returns at Companies House in addition to its responsibilities to the Regulator. Accordingly, a CIC must be registered both with Companies House and the CIC Regulator.
The CIC structure has statutory clauses that cannot be removed by directors:
- Asset Lock: assets must be used for the “purpose”.
- Dividends payments (if any) are capped by statute.
- Assets can only be transferred to another asset-locked body.
An annual report is placed on the public record for public scrutiny;
- The activities of the CIC, & the benefit provided to the community
- The remuneration paid to the directors
- The assets transferred other than full consideration
- Dividends paid (if any)
- Performance related interest paid
- The steps taken to consult stakeholders and the outcome

A mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by great difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts.
- Autism was only recognised and diagnosable in the late 70’s to early 80s’. This resulted in millions of individuals being labelled as disruptive, incompetent and worse.
- The current thinking is that around 1.4% of the population is on the spectrum, however, owing to the late creation of a diagnostic tool for ASD, many adults have never been diagnosed. Recently the USA’s CDC announced an increase in their estimate of the rate of autism from 1 in 68 to 1 in 59 (1.7%). This amounts to 5.1 million and over one million people in the United Kingdom.
- Individuals on the spectrum have an unemployment rate of over 85%.
- This leads to isolation, mental and physical health issues, suicidal rates above the average and a life expectancy sharply below the average.
We use the same software, processes and professionalism as our competitors, but as a social enterprise we do not have the same short term goals. Having the ability to continue to work, train and mentor our colleagues through a journey to becoming secure, confident with an ability to work a meaningful job and be paid appropriately is our short, medium and long term goal.
Our studio is made up of the ASD men and women who are participating in the program after being selected from a pool of applicants. Alongside them work the experienced professionals who have substantial industry experience and came to CandyClic Creative to continue their career in an environment that allows them to also contribute to a social good.
