“Good enough” is never good enough.

We’ve never heard a client say, “Gimme something mediocre, unattractive and non-functional” so we always assume they’ve come to us because they’re looking for the best, most beautiful solution. We value the confidence shown by our clients and we push ourselves to rise to the design challenge every time. Our in-house critique can sometimes be brutal, but we believe that attention to quality and detail is the only way to get great results.

 

Do what you love. Love what you do. Or go do something else.

We have a really fun time doing what we do. Our team may be small but we make it up in the volume of our laughter. We’re avid readers, debaters, consumers of online content, brainstormers, whiteboard diagrammers, inappropriate joke-tellers and great friends. It’s not tough finding the motivation to hang out with bright, fun people all day. We want to keep it that way, so we treat each other (and our clients) with respect and integrity.

And while we have been known to act pretty silly around the office we take our work very seriously. When your hobby is also what you do to earn a living you’ve got a lot to be grateful for. We’re design geeks and we love nothing better than coming up with creative, innovative design solutions for our clients. Heck, we’ve got a closet full of random ideas. We can’t help it. We think in pictures. We love design.

 

Show a little respect.

Environmental sustainability is important. Yes, we design printed collateral, but we do this in the most responsible way possible; printing only what we need on PCW (post consumer waste) paper, using soy-based inks. Wherever possible we offer clients digital alternatives and have perfected the art of working with them remotely (although we admit we love good old-fashioned face-time too!). In our professional and personal lives we strive to be respectful to our planet.

We also try to be good neighbors. We’re fortunate to live and work in cities we love, and in the company of some very smart people. In fact we love collaborative projects where we get to work alongside creative partners locally and all over the country.

 

Give back – early and often.

We’re doing this for more than just the money. We’re a part of our community and it’s important to us that we give back to organizations doing effective work to make a difference. We feel strongly that everyone can contribute something, and we ALWAYS have at least one project in our production schedule that is a labor of love for our community and her citizens. Sometimes we get a bit over-ambitious, but there are worse vices to have.
