Our designers can take your vision and turn it in to any tangible form of media required. From logo and brand design, to print media, digital media, social media, and web we have your design needs covered.
Our process starts with an initial meeting where we get to know your business and it’s needs. From there the process can change depending on the project but one thing is certain, we work closely with you every step of the way.
After the design work is complete, we provide you with a proof and two rounds of revisions. The final work is delivered to you digitally, and we can also deliver print projects straight to the printer of your choice.

Why hire a designer?
Not only does a designer bring a level of creativity and passion to your project, they have also spent a great amount of time studying numerous design principles. These principles are not always as common sense as people may think and they are integral to ensuring the final product transmits the right message, with the right feeling to the viewers.
The other very important benefit is that a professional designer can provide a product that lasts. They have the skills and software to create products in multiple formats if needed and with the proper structure to prevent you from redesigning every time technology progresses.
One example of this is found in logos. They can be very cheaply purchased as stock from multiple websites. However, these logos are replicated across various business which loses brand awareness, and they are often designed only for use on web and small print projects. Should you decide to create a sign with your logo, get it embroidered or printed on clothing, or create a sticker for a wall in your office, these logos will not be properly designed, of the right file format, or of high enough resolution to accomplish your goals. Trust us, the result will not be pretty.
Another issue we encounter is the templated website. These sites are quick and easy for the user to set up; you pick the design you like, plug in your info and away you go. Until:
- You want to add a feature that is not built into the template (this happens more often than you might think)
- You want to expand your website beyond the scope of the template (more pages, more features, more images, more text, etc)
- The template becomes outdated and no longer supports updates. This makes your site slow, prone to errors, and is a huge turn off for customers.
Not only are you limited by the physical design, like the logos you can buy from these companies these templates are also spread across the internet diluting any brand awareness you are trying to generate.
Will I get to view and approve proofs throughout the process?
Absolutely! We provide multiple opportunities for clients to view and edit proofs throughout our design process.
Who owns the completed work?
The complete and delivered work belongs to the client 100% once paid in full. The files and artwork used to create the final product (the working files) remain the sole property of The Company Inc.
Why should I choose The Company over the sea of competitors?
There are a lot of options out there when it comes to design. However, we work extremely hard to ensure our customers have the best experience possible and that means:
- Taking the time to answer all your questions, no matter when you ask them
- Clear and transparent pricing with no hidden charges
- Developing a relationship with you and your business to best meet your needs
- Holding ourselves to the highest standards of quality
- Loving what we do, having fun doing it, and putting our passion for the creative into every project we work on.
