EVERY SMALL  BUSINESS OWNER KNOWS

RECESSIONS
ARE A FACT OF LIFE

Whatever size your business, small as the dining room table, crowded in the garage or a tiny office in a large strip mall; you need to present an image that's larger, bolder and more memorable than everyone else. You more than any other group need to be easy to remember and very hard to forget.

BRANDS PUT YOU ON MORE SECURE FOOTING IN UNCERTAIN TIMES

At the Design Office we'd rather disagree with someone over type choices rather than argue over money. We're old Skool that way. The discussion of money can make people.  uncomfortable. We get it, It's not ok our top ten favorite things list. Arguing over money isn't great for us either. It's a distraction from what we love to do.

 

That's why we developed our flat rate system. Just like you, heck, like any small business, we don't have a ton of disposable income for "perks"...and we're in the "perks" business! It's why we feel great branding, design and marketing doesn't have to be expensive to be amazing! Quality is in the eye not the pocketbook.

 

Flat rates are good for you and they're great for us! We can do what we love to do and you know it's not going to cost a million dollars. But...your still not using comic sans on anything...

 

unless you're an elementary school, then go for it!

Of course we have the standard, and ubiquitous reasons...Thirty yrs of hands on, industry experience, affordable, flat rate pricing, long history of happy clients, well versed in DC silver age comic lore...the list goes on and on. We've got all that but that's not what makes us us.

 

What you get from working with us is how we see the world. Like true creatives, through brand colored glasses (seriously, we do...they're on now, check instagram). Brands infuse everything we do.

 

Our core belief is that brands are stories, stories about your business boiled down to an easily recalled idea and image. Marketing is then telling those stories in unique ways to people you don't know yet. Successful brands tell genuine stories that are easily and consistently repeatable while resonating with consumers. Using that definition, can anyone and anything can be a brand? Yes, they can and they should think of themselves as one.

 

Every client we work with sees themselves as a brand. Where we come in is to work with them to see the possibilities inherent in their own brand. Sometimes for the first time, sometimes like seeing an old friend again for the first time in a long time. We show them how their brands give their marketing faster recognition with consumers. Brands connect because they are easy to share and explain. Brands mean business. It's becoming a fact, you won't survive as a small business, unless you start thinking of yourself as a brand.

 

That's what makes us different

why

you should

work

with us

The question we get asked most often is: "why should I work with you?"  Typically, it's phrased more along the lines of something like: "what's so special about you?" but thankfully we're not easily offended. It did take us awhile, though, but eventually we deciphered that to mean: "...what benefits does my business get from doing business with the Design Office? What's the ROI?" It's what everyone wants to know. It's why you're here reading this. Right? Inquiring minds...

We get asked a lot of odd questions....
