Number 1, years of experience. There are many companies out there who are espousing that they are a branding firm but do not have the skill set and knowledge base to back it up. Number 2, the number of companies you have helped brand themselves or rebrand their existing brand, Number 3, experience with Fortune 500 hundred companies, publicly traded companies, international and government entities. You speak their speak which is a language few understand.

Boutique firm that offers personalized service. Very responsive. As high quality as bigger shops, but not a ton of overhead.

It isn’t hard to encapsulate 12 years of working with Cricket. What I value the most, even now, is her ability to see the infinite possibilities in any project. She draws the creative people we work with along to be more than we ever thought we could be. I am valued in the co-creative process and she always challenges me to think outside the box. She encourages constant learning and I find she is always stretching me beyond what I can do or know or create.

My first thought is that you really dive deep, and are thorough in “mind mapping” a client’s intentions (or mission) with their company, to create the best branding and marketing for them. This inspires new and different directions you never thought possible. Designing without limits…
Another thing I always felt is that you really CARE about your clients success in their business, and not just focusing on your own success with the graphics.
– Becky Ankeny, designer
Diversity of resources. You don’t depend on “in-house” talent. You go where the talent is when and where needed. Richness of collective thinking to analyze problems and solutions with virtual staff. Your team is fast. You move forward quickly and efficiently and get the job done so the client can benefit from the counsel and creative process as soon as possible. I think you are different than other marketing companies because …
You think through a solution from all angles, meaning that you are not singly focused on providing just one way to communicate i.e. a newsletter, you look at the organization’s objectives and see how they can reach their target audiences on the most effective levels whether through their processes, in person communication, marketing materials, etc. You are fast and agile. You get things done quickly and can bring together the right people for each project.
– Josephine Morris, owner Sprout Strategies
The best, bar none, the most professional and complete creative projects have been designed by you and your staff. The research that you do on every angle from correct and legal verbiage, patent infringements, to focusing mission and company objectives in order for the consumer to get their message is invaluable.
– Water Resources International, Inc.
I think your commitment to REALLY get people’s industries and do a thorough job with people providing what you see they will need. I am clear you didn’t relate to us as ‘just another job’.
