Branding & Identity
Your identity tells the story of what you make through your logo, type, color and graphic elements. It should appeal to your ideal customer and make them feel at home so they stay engaged.
A Style Guide is a document that contains the logos, fonts, color and graphic element guidelines for your brand. This is a reference for anyone creating graphics or packaging for you.
We can help source from customized to fully custom packaging based on your identity and your needs .
Stop using the office supply store's templates (designed for Jane Doe) for your business materials. Make your letterhead, invoices and postcards stand out and stay on brand wherever you print.

Are you still trying to do your own photography and struggling to make your images sing?
Let us do the photography for you or connect you with a great photographer in our network. Why spend your studio time figuring out how to get a white background or making your jewelry look fabulous when we can do that for you and you can go back to the studio?
Keep in mind we can coordinate your photography with your brand aesthetic and make sure it will look great on your website.
There are great tools now available for you to do your own graphic design and that's great. The down side is you will be using templates that every other business is using. They will look familiar to your audience but won't stand out. You just know when you get a generic business card or post card don't you?
It's the difference between coming across as a business that will be around in ten years or one that might be gone in a year. When you work with someone who is attuned to the nuances in fonts, papers and your brand, your print materials will definitely stand out.
big or small
Sometimes you need a drawing instead of a photograph to tell your story or add an accent to your website, catalog or logo. We have a number of pencils and pens at your disposal through various established illustrators.
Words are fine but you know a picture is a 1000 words in one instant.
