Services

  • We offer all of our clients a range of creative and technical services.¬†Our team will help bring life to your initiative, and then we'll make it work for you.
  • Interactive Strategy

    Your web presence is just a bunch of bells and whistles unless it's based on a powerful, informed strategy. Who is your audience? What do they want when they come to your site? How do you present and manage your content?

    What have you always wanted to know but were afraid to ask?

    We bring you through a process of defining your goals and challenges, learning about possible solutions, and arriving at a strategy with purpose and reason. We don't just produce for our clients; we educate them.

  • Visual Identity Design

    A trademark is the image that represents your brand, and a visual identity system is the set of rules and elements that control its usage. Because it's all about you, our first step is getting to know you. We learn all that we can about what makes you special and then begin the process of translating that information into your visual identity.

    Based on your requirements and our creative process, we develop just the right logo, symbol, monogram or other graphic device that communicates the essence of who you are. We have a passion for all design, but Identity design has a special place in our hearts.

  • Print

    There is nothing like the tactility of the printed medium. From receiving a handsome business card to opening a beautifully designed package, print remains an effective way to communicate your message through engaging the senses. We know the materials and process, and bring our relationships with great, competitive printers to every job we take on. Most of the projects we work on span the web and the page; we're a full-service firm, so we know how to translate your vision from one medium to the next.

  • Web

    Web design and planning is where our design and code teams combine forces to provide elegant and seamless web solutions for you and your desired end user. We emphasize early planning to help you suss out all of your technical and strategic needs, so you can make the best possible decisions for your online presence.

    We're a full service firm with expertise in all areas of web development. We know how to move your project through its phases: strategy, information architecture, design, development, testing, and deployment.

    Our design process is a culmination of user-centered decisions based on optimizing a user's total experience through intelligent information architecture, standard usability practices, and engaging visual communication.

 

You can engage us for only one service or bundle them for added value and efficiency. For instance, say you want to launch a new dynamic Flash website for your company's new line of products. Bring us on early in the process, and we'll work with you to develop the visual language for the project. Then we'll build the site, IAB-standard and rich media ads, and print promotions.

We deliver sophisticated design and code solutions under the same roof. So bundle up!
