How much did you invest in Imran designs?

How much is your business worth?
Over Shs10m.

What are the challenges that you are facing in graphic designing?
People don’t know the value of art. They want quality things but cheaply. Then there are quack graphic designers who tarnish our names.

The prices vary depending on what the client wants and the magnitude of the work. The cheapest I charge is Shs20,000 but it can go up to Shs10m depending on the job.

I can make Shs1m on a good day and Shs10,000 on a bad day.

We are located on the second floor of Oxide Building in Katwe, downtown Kampala.
