It’s not rocket science…
it’s more like mad science

From start to finish, our focus is on being a first-rate collaborator, guide and thought partner. Call us old fashioned, but we take relationships seriously; we believe in the power of good manners, goodwill and respect. What sets us apart is the attentiveness with which we listen, the creativity of our ideation, and the hardworking diligence with which we tackle the work.

Here’s what it looks like to work with us.

IMMERSE 

We begin every project with a deep dive into your world, studying your brands, business, history, values, competition, industry trends and goals – as well as the particular goals for the project. Most importantly, we learn about your audience. What we learn about their needs, desires, likes and dislikes helps us develop compelling and effective solutions. 

Distill - An illuminated light bulb.
DISTILL

This is where the creative magic begins. We take everything we’ve learned and observed and, through strategic analysis, brainstorming, critical and intuitive thinking, distill it into concepts that are emotionally targeted and resonant – and that pass approval of our cast of ‘devil’s advocates’.

Create - A boxed in 'C' highlighted by paint splotches.
CREATE 

Now ready to tell the conceptual story, we begin to create the pieces that will reflect the concepts. Our team strategizes, outlines, writes, designs, edits, and continues refining until we’ve developed a solution that we’re proud to show you. This process of creation and feedback continues until we’ve landed on a finished product that exceeds your expectations.

Once a project is approved, we launch it into the world. Where and how we launch it is informed by the strategies developed under the Immerse and Distill steps.

MEASURE 

We don’t consider a project to be complete until, based on the goals established at the beginning of the project, we’ve assessed its analytics and measured its success, bringing those numbers back to you to prove the efficacy of the project or campaign. Whether this is an analytics report, audience survey or ongoing analysis, we always bring it back to your business goals.

When asked what drives us, these values top the list:

Simplicity

Clean, elegant ideas and solutions are resonant, refreshing and accessible. We avoid unnecessary clutter by developing simple solutions that get to the heart of the idea…we are firm believers that less is actually more.

Quality

We are straight-up perfectionists when it comes to our work and never settle for second-rate. We consider quality, attention to detail, and thoughtfulness to be major differentiating factors between us and our competition. Over the years our work has been recognized with a variety of national and regional awards including from Graphic Design USA, New England Society for Healthcare Communications, Print’s Regional Design Annual and the Printing & Imaging Association of Georgia.

Partnership

Healthy partnerships with our clients bring out the best in each team. We approach each client relationship with a friendly, open-minded and neighborly spirit. Some past and present partners:
