Design Blog: November

I Have Thoughts on Design & Stuff…
weird right?

As it happens I use a lot of sources for inspiration and a few thoughts on how to make good design happen. I have some resources, tools, tips, and sources I want to share about my process, and how I am able to do what I do. I am building the library of content as you read this. That way we can keep things moving smoothly, By mid November everything will be up and running. It can not come soon enough! Stay Tuned and make sure to check us out on social.

Businesses and why they need good design

If you are a business and you are not thinking about your brand, your marketing, or how to make it all better, then you are likely loosing opportunity.

The Blog of Design Then, and Whats Next

All year long, A bi-weekly set of postings that showcase good and bad design that inform how we can learn more from what works and doesn’t work

Education / Resources Stuff to play with

Curation of the best in programs, case studies, videos, articles, books, and more. Sharing is best when it comes to finding new solution to the everyday problems we face as designers

Branding with you, not for you, not because you hired us to, because your designs need something better than what you will get from fiverr ….

What You Can Expect

I have worked for nearly a decade finding ways around creative roadblocks, for clients, myself and others. I truly love what I do, and the variety of the projects I get to work on every year.

One-on-one Consulting

One-on-one consults via phone, skype or in person, providing you the time you need to find the best solutions for the project. I strive to be available to my clients and to provide them with feedback on how we can get to the best solution for the project, faster, better and with more creativity.

Process is important but it is not everything!

Access solutions, partners and ideas to help you get your project off the ground, or to completion. I work in my own process, but that does not mean you are going to have to do a lot of leg work changing how you work. That said I may make suggestions. I strive to meet you where you are with your project, and to get you there the way that works best for you.

Solutions are part of the game but not the whole game

It is important that we find solutions to your project and deliver on what is promised. It is just as important that we find the right questions to ask,  I can give you all the solutions you can handle and design a ton of different versions of how you project may look… But not asking the right questions and looking deeper into what you want is less likely to get you to where you want to be. 

Creativity is not... your average Joe logo, crap design, or website... its something just right for you

Creative vision requires flexibility and a sense of inspiration, It also requires time, skill and patience, all things I am constantly working on.  I am here to help or provide that creative vision for your project. I work with you to better understand what makes you and your business unique, in order to make designs, websites, brands, logos that are just right, and just for you.

Do Not Wait Until The Last Minute…

Getting started on your Graphic Design, Brand, or website, or really any and all of a project earlier is always, always better. Always….Trust me I have been there, a lot… We work with a lot of projects with a lot of different turnarounds, If your last minute emergency website build from the ground up is doable I will let you know.

Your projects solution needs time, so giving me and the team I work with the most amount of time possible. It only benefits you. That being said, I can do quick turn around work, just be kind and don’t make it the thing we have to do all the time.

The Services

These are just a few of the projects we take on. If you are unsure if you and your project are a good fit, feel free to give me a call.  If it’s a project that we don’t typical work on we likely know the right person for your work. I’m more than happy to help find the right partner for you to work with.
