Branding and Identity Design
Creating a brand is a noble and often difficult undertaking for any business or organization, but creating a logo can be much easier. Often we are asked to create a brand, but what most clients mean is that they want a really cool logo. We design and create logos quite often, but our goal is to always help clients create a brand. The goal for a well designed logo is to properly communicate the essence of a company’s product, service, or mission to their target market. A logo typically consists of a word or words (company name and sometimes their slogan) and an icon or mark. A logo should be able to be used in multiple formats such as printing, embroidery, and video, and still be easily read and understood by the viewer. This is why most successful logos are fairly simple. A overly complex logo (multiple fonts, hard to read fonts, illustrative icon, etc) can actually hurt a company’s effort to “brand” themselves because their logo doesn’t communicate effectively. We apply two very important maxims to all that we do: “Less is More” and “Form Follows Function”. Following these two guiding principles helps us achieve our task as graphic designers — we make the complex, simple. We also understand the passion behind a business or product, while coaching our clients through the process of taking all their thoughts and passions, and creating an effective logo/brand that will serve them for many years. Don’t skimp on logo creation because it’s the first step to creating a legitimate brand.
Email Marketing Services
Email marketing is a low-cost option to reach a mass audience. The essence of a successful e-mail campaign is a targeted email list. With our email marketing, we can track every step of a user’s interaction with the email. Including if they read it, where they clicked, what time it was read, and more.
Social Media Management Services
Social Media plays a large part in a business these days. Mass marketing a single message for everyone to see as part of a one-way conversation is becoming less powerful. Consumers are driving the sales, and they crave information. Customer/consumer interaction and custom-tailor ad campaigns to niche groups is needed and social media provides and effective way to make that happen. We manage your social media content to ensure the proper message is conveyed effectively.

Online marketing covers a wide variety of services that are crucial to your business. Online advertising like private website impression ad systems to high-tech cost-per-click campaigns are an effective and measurable advertising method that is quickly becoming the go-to for successful brick-and-mortar businesses, and especially e-commerce companies. With web advertising, organic Search-Engine-Optimization is required to let search engines know your information effectively and efficiently.

As a society it is becoming more and more difficult to hold our attention. Video ads and entertainment pieces are growing in popularity and are a necessity in the marketing world. To be able to showcase and educate your audience on your product or service in the most effective way is through video. Youtube is the 3rd largest search engine in the world and with the implementation of Facebook video, soon video ads will be one of the top recommended outlets to get your message out to your target audience.

A web site is your new business card. It is likely the first place someone will look to find you, or to learn more about your company. First impression need to be a good one, but there is more to a website than nice photos and flashy graphics. Web design changes every day. The need to keep up with what search engines deem important has developers changing all the time. Proper content management on a website makes all the difference.

SEO & SEM are some of the most important letters in advertising today. There are very few, if any, advertising efforts that don’t lead back to or start off with search engine marketing.

Googling has been a verb for several years and it is what every company needs to first consider when promoting their product or service. Our team of web advertising pros properly analyze our client’s market so that we can build an accurate profile for effective search engine marketing.
It all starts with a word. Then a sentence, a paragraph, a great question, a compelling statement or provocative assertion on your website, your Google or Facebook post. Corralling your target market through a great search engine campaign requires more than just technical knowledge, it takes a savvy intuition that only comes through decades of studying and persuading various audiences to become aware of and respond positively to a brand, a product or a service. It really comes down to experience and creativity.
