We do what we love... We'd love to do it for you.
— Don Draper
You've got a story to tell! We'll help you tell it well.
Your brand is not determined by you. Your brand is defined by 'them'. A brand audit is an essential step to aligning what you're saying about your brand and what others are saying about your brand. The proper research will reveal how well you're convincing your audience and what needs to be done to help them better understand who you are.
Brand Strategy & Positioning
Do you know who you are? Have you captured the essence of your brand? We'll help you define who you are, what you do, and what it matters. This is the foundation for all other decisions a brand makes. Without a proper brand strategy & position, you're like a ship without a rudder.
Naming a brand is hard. Finding a domain to match is even harder. We've successfully named companies, products, and even rock bands. We'll help you find or create a name that contributes to revealing the essence of your brand. Some examples include: ESPN Casa De Deportes, FoundTown, GolfStatus, Spireon, PushPoint, Travel & Gather, TriviaOnTwitter, TikiPick & TimeStack.
Brand Identity Systems
While a brand is much more than a logo, and even much more than pretty pictures, it includes those things as well. We'll help you develop a logomark, color palette, typography scheme and visual language that is unique and memorable.

How people experience your product or service is your 'brand.' We'll help you create an experience that is beautiful, distinct & unforgettable.
User Experience (UX)
Getting the workflow down is often an overlooked task. Then you're stuck with a fragmented experience where users don't know if they're coming or going. Instead of going where you want them to, they're standing in the bermuda triangle of your application cursing the name next to the copyright at the bottom of the page. You can change this. We can help.
Consumer & Retail Experience (CX)
Trying to create a consumer experience? Has your establishment considered the 3 P's of consumer experience: Product, Presentation & Personality? Probably not because it's a system we developed. However, these 3 P's can help you create an unforgettable experience that keep customers coming back and have them tweeting, texting, and telling their friends about you.

Everything is a design problem. Whether it's, "How should we portray our brand visually?" or, "How can we convey this with copy?". It's all design problem-solving and we're good at it.
Web Interface Design
Everything with a screen is an interface. Whether it's a complex web application or a simple marketing site, it must engage the user and direct them as they use it. We have the knack for identifying the proper 'visual style' for a given interface. We won't try to fit your brand into our style. We design it in a way that is complimentary and consistent with your brand, and focuses on conversion. When the users get to your goals, we're happy.
Mobile Interface Design
(iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry)
Mobile design is easy, you just make a smaller version of your website... right? Wrong. The mobile context is an opportunity to do something special, something unique. We consider where, when, and how people interact with mobile devices. That allows us to design a visually stunning and usable interface that meets them where they're at.
— Don Draper
When it comes to digital experiences, most don't consider their foundation. Without a base of concrete code, well, you're the guy building his house on the sand.
(Standards-Compliant CSS & HTML)
We love to craft code. There is something beautiful about putting text and numbers in one side and getting buxom beauty out the other end. We're pushing the limits of newer technologies like CSS3 and HTML5 to craft experiences that function well in all browsers, but reward progressive users (some call this 'progressive enhancement').
We will continue to do Wordpress development projects internally, however, for full-scale application development we have chosen to partner with solid development contractors and studios that are aligned with our philosophy, work ethic and commitment to quality. We are knowledgeable concerning most widely-used technologies and are comfortable working within the development environment. We can work to implement our design and front-end code into your existing (or in development) codebase.
A culture of collaboration, consistency & conviction.
