“Services” is a bit of a misnomer. What we really provide are “things.”
Things that we write. That we design. That we dream up. Sometimes we do these things alone. Sometimes, we do them in collaboration with others. Often, these things are parts of larger things. Like websites, advertising campaigns, or brand identities. To name a few.
To learn about more about the things we do, and who we do them for, keep reading.
Businesses & Nonprofits
We help small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits with branding, marketing, and advertising projects. Our approach is as follows:
- You tell us what you need.
- We tell you if we can help.
- If we can help, we send you a proposal.
- You sign the proposal.
- We get to work. Fast.
What kind of work do we do? Essentially, all the stuff a traditional agency creative team does. But we get especially excited about:
Brand & Identity Development
We build (and sometimes, re-build) brands for businesses and nonprofits. We work in three steps:
- We research. We learn all about your business, your audience, your products or services, and your biggest competitors.
- We collaborate. We work as a team to build a coherent, powerful, and enduring visual and narrative foundation for your brand.
- We perfect. We revise and fine-tune, until everyone involved agrees that your brand does, indeed, kick ass.
A wise man once said, “Bad packaging is bad marketing.”
Or if he didn’t, he should have. We create product packaging that is brand-aligned and beautiful. From food and beverage to beauty products, we specialize in making products look awesome and making audiences say, “I want that.”
Fee-Based Creative Services
If you handle marketing for a business or nonprofit, you probably need ongoing creative services. And you probably can’t afford to hire full-time staff—or a traditional ad agency—to provide them.
We can be your go-to creative team. We’ll help with everything from daily design needs (presentations, promotional posters, email templates) to ongoing copy needs (blogs, marketing emails, corporate communications)—you get the idea.
We do lots of other stuff for businesses and nonprofits. Like:
- Environmental graphics
- Apparel design
- Email copywriting
- Editorial writing
- Ad campaign development
If it’s marketing or advertising related, we do it. So don’t hesitate to contact us about that thing you need, OK?
Maybe you’re shorthanded. Or maybe you need an outside team to take a crack at a brief that’s been giving your in-house team fits.
Either way, we’re your huckleberry. From full campaigns to one-off projects, we deliver high-impact, on-strategy work on demand. And then we get the hell out of your way.
Here are a few of the ways we can help you:
When you need a fresh set of brains on an important project, call us. We can produce whip-smart, strategically on-point concepts fast.
Send us the brief and the deadline, and we’ll work closely with you to deliver a polished product you can present with pride.
A la Carte Services
As former ad agency creative directors, we know how it goes: Someone ate a bad burrito, and suddenly you’re down a man (or woman).
Now you need someone to fill the gap. We don’t mind being your gap-filler. In fact, here are a few things we don’t mind doing:
- Website copy
- Ad/collateral design and layout
- Trade show graphics
- Project proposals
We’re not (that) picky. Contact us. We’ll negotiate a fair price and get to work.
If you’re a marketing professional at a big ol’ bureaucratic corporation, chances are you spend your days in a challenging, blood-pressure-raising environment.
We feel your pain. If you hire us, we’ll do our damndest to make you look awesome and keep your systolic/diastolic numbers in a safe range. Here’s how:
Annual Reports, Corporate Collateral, Etc.
Let’s be straight. Nobody truly *likes* working on annual reports or corporate brochures. They *endure* it. And anyone who says otherwise is a liar or a weirdo.
Be that as it may, annual reports or corporate brochures are kind of our thing. We’re not saying they’re our idea of a party. But we are saying we’re really good at them. Like, really good.
A la Carte Services
We take pride in helping marketing managers kick ass (and, when necessary, take names).
While you probably have a big-boy ad agency for all of your major brand stuff, you invariably need some strong creative support on other, equally important stuff like:
- Presentation design
- Video scripting and production
- Day-to-day design needs
- Internal communications
We encourage you to think of us as your creative side piece. So contact us, OK? We’ll be discreet.
