Since 2006 our agency has specialized in developing design, branding, print and web solutions for a wide range of brands and businesses. Our team of designers and branding specialists have a keen eye for producing creative design solutions that allow our clients to differentiate themselves from the competition.

Our role is to take your ideas, concepts and vision, then turn them into a creative reality that serves a purpose, accomplishes your goals and delivers your brand message with clarity. From the creative perspective, we listen to you, we talk with you, we consider your ideas, we get to know your market, we gauge the pulse of your customers, and your competition. Then we determine the best means to develop your brand in a way that differentiates it to ensure a unique representation.

Our agency works with a design first focus and we’ve built a reputation for bringing design concepts to life. We specialize in sophisticated design and campaign solutions that take creative materials to the next level by communicating our clients message in a manner that is relevant and inspirational to their target market.



Design Process Step One

1. Research & Project Brief

Every good plan needs a road map and a clear set of goals. To begin the process, we’ll conduct a jump off meeting and complete a project brief that outlines key deliverables, deadlines and targets to guide the development and timeline for this project.

This in person meeting will help establish an understanding of your vision and desired results, we’ll review examples of branded work, your brand standards guide and develop a work flow / process between your staff and our team of designers. Within this phase we’ll outline:

• Project Leaders and Team Members; including preferred method of communication and contact info
• Details and milestones
• General content outline
• Specific project requirements
• Gather assets
• Review samples and reference materials

2. Design Direction

To get started, we will prepare and deliver a set of directional mood-boards consisting of various unique design directions for you to review and critique. These mood-boards will allow us to establish a visual / design direction prior to beginning work on your project. Doing so will ensure we are on the right path and not infringing on any designs of other brands within your market and ultimately delivering a visual direction that speaks your vision.

3. Design

Based on the design direction established from the mood-boards we will prepare and deliver unique design comps for you to review. These comps will be designed with the intention of establishing the look for your project moving forward.

4. Client Feedback & Revisions

From the initial comps provided you will select the option or elements from them that best suit your needs and liking. From there we will finalize the design by providing rounds of revisions to fine tune and complete your project.
