About us.

This is what we believe:

Good design and great ideas do not need to
cost a lot.

Small businesses deserve quality marketing and advertising advice.

Your success is the only true measure of our effectiveness.

Good communication prevents friction.

Small business is where the action is.

This is how we work:

We get to know you and your business. It doesn’t have to be formal. Perhaps a cup of coffee and a notepad will do. We’ll find out what you do and why you do it.

We’ll develop a proposal that confirms that we understand the project at hand. Here is where we will outline the scope, direction and the cost of the project. We’ll have another set of conversations to make sure that you’re comfortable with all aspects of the plan.

We’ll have a kick-off meeting either in person or on the phone to get the ball rolling and get you familiar with and excited about the process.

We’ll get cracking with the creative aspects of your project. If we come upon a new technology or process that could help your project do more, save money or be completed faster, we’ll let you know.

We’ll have an unveiling either in person or on the phone and get your feedback on our design directions. You make suggestions, we make changes, and you provide final approval.

We’ll deploy your project and monitor its progress.

Contact us today to get your project rolling. We’ve got great ideas, and we can’t wait to use them to help your business succeed. We look forward to working with you!
