Got a question?

Here are some common answers.

How is this different than an agency/contractor/other subscription service?

To be honest – yeah, there are a lot of design agencies and subscriptions out there. So what makes us any different? Unlike a lot of other services, Kojo empathizes with your developers as well as your users. It's super important to not get tripped up by implementation when running a startup, which is why all of Kojo's designs are practical and easy to implement. If your developers have any questions, they can just directly – we're experts in JavaScript, CSS, and HTML.

How is this different than just hiring someone?

Hiring is... a lot of work. There are applications you need to sift through, interviews you need to run, not to mention the high salaries and benefit packages. With Kojo, you get your own dedicated designer making your product look awesome for a fraction of the cost. Plus? No headache.

What if my startup doesn’t need design at this stage?

Trust us, you already do.

Who is behind Kojo?

Kojo is the work of Tyler Nickerson, the creator, designer and developer behind a sea of online products such as Linguistic, CityHop, and The Open Dictionary. Tyler is Kojo's sole designer, so by subscribing to Kojo, you'll get to work directly with him 😁

What is a design request?

A design request can be a new page, a new feature, or even just a simple revision – the rule of thumb is typically one request is equivalent to one frame in Figma.

What can I feasibly receive during my trial?

Considering that design requests often take 1-2 days, you can expect 2-3 deliverables during your trial depending on the scope of work.

Is this really unlimited?

Yes and no – while you can request as many designs as you need, they will be tackled one (or two) at a time, depending on your tier. A request can be a new page, a new feature, or a simple revision to an existing design. Once a request is completed, we move on to the next one.

How fast will I receive my designs?

Our goal is to get the final design in your hands by the end of one or two business days.

What does it mean to "pause" a subscription?

Pausing a subscription simply means you won't be billed at the start of the next cycle. For example, if you pause your subscription on the 15th of the month, you'll still have 15-16 days of additional design work you can use at any time (seeing you've already paid for it). Once your subscription is paused, you'll have 30 days until your Notion account access expires unless you restart your subscription.

What is Notion and what's in my workspace?

Notion is a robust desktop application for note-taking, project management, and more. We use it to manage our design requests and deliverables. Your workspace will contain a dashboard with helpful links to manage your subscription, make requests, and view your deliverables. You'll be invited as a guest to our workspace and have a dedicated page for you and your team's projects.

Why Astro?

Astro is a static site generator that ships with zero JavaScript. That means there is no UI framework (like React) slowing down your site. Astro is used when building landing pages for clients on our Pro tier. Astro was chosen because it is cheaper to setup than Framer or Webflow (saving you money) and circumvents vendor lock-in. It's also just... a lot faster, and because it's plain HTML and CSS, the codebase is quite portable.

Is there anything you don't do?

Currently Kojo does not design any advanced or character illustrations (think the Duolingo owl), motion graphics (Lottie or Rive), print graphics, or videos.

Do you give refunds?

Seeing there is a 7-day free trial, no.

What if I only have one request?

Kojo features a lower-cost, limited Starter tier for teams that only have one or two design requests. You can pause or cancel your subscription after you're happy with the work.

Where does your name come from?

"Kojo" is actually a Japanese word (ε‘δΈŠ or kōjō) that means "improvement" or "progress". Kojo's goal is to help elevate and improve startups via design, so it's pretty fitting, no?
