ARE WE A MATCH?! YOU DECIDE:
Proud business owner.
Your heart is stitched right into your work. Sometimes you wonder if you care too much, but you wouldn’t do this any other way.
Your abilities probably outstrip what your current website communicates.
You don’t have time to constantly update your portfolio. You need your branding to share the power lifting and instantly tell clients the level at which you’re playing.
You appreciate quality. You’re willing to let go a little and allow a trustworthy professional make it better than you could on your own.
You don’t need another partner, but you kiiiind of wish someone else out there was losing sleep making your business run better. (Yes, please!)
You’re able to give honest feedback.
You might admit to a slight paper obsession and love pinning ideas for your dream home.
Listening. We don’t just wait until it’s our turn to talk. We don’t slot you into a predetermined look. We listen to you and build from your vision.
Experience. We’ve been doing this for over 10 years. That means we can do much more in 1 hour now than we could when we started. You also benefit directly from years of us seeing what people need over time; we create it for you up front.
Built-in flexibility. Not all designers turn over a tidy package of source files; our goal is to make you self-sufficient. Here’s why that matters: We once had a client come to us needing a custom rubber stamp. Her logo was too complex to make a quality stamp, so we suggested we use the monogram of her logo. However, her designer hadn’t provided the source file, so we weren’t able to make her stamp. The client was already limited in what she could do with her new brand. Seeing dozens of things like this over a decade, we know exactly how to help you avoid unpleasant surprises, and think of things you don’t yet know you’ll need.
Design beyond trend. We all want to look up-to-date, but the point of branding is to stand out. Why choose a look everyone else has? We’ll take our cues from your personal story and your taste, not what’s trending on Instagram.
Print expertise. It’s simple to make a digital mock-up look cool; translating something on screen into something tangible is a different journey altogether (as we’re sure you’ve glimpsed even just printing photos at home). We have mastered the way different inks, beautiful papers, and processes interact in a world where tiny differences can make something either forgettable or extraordinary.
Personalized. Quality over quantity. We take on only a few clients at a time so you truly have our full attention. We turn things around quickly.
Network. If you require additional skills beyond what we provide (like custom calligraphy or specialty web development), we have relationships with the best in the business and can essentially build a team just for you. You still have a seamless experience and one point of contact - Nikki - while we direct the project behind the scenes. You get a bigger pool of talent while avoiding the significantly higher fees of an in-house agency.
Joy! We believe having fun with our clients is part of being professional! Just think: Gathering inspiration, beautiful materials, friendly emails - this is probably going to be your favorite ‘business task’ you’ve ever tackled.
