We can, especially if you already have a WordPress website. More often than not, updating to an entirely new website on WordPress (if you are not already on the WordPress CMS) is more cost effective and beneficial long term. This is much more affordable than you may think.

Graphic Design
1I already have a brand, why would I want to update it?
In order to properly answer this question, consider asking yourself a few questions first: – Does your brand fade in amongst your competition? – Are your customers looking for you online? – Will it benefit your company to have a cohesive look? – Will it benefit your company to build your brand image online? – Do you need better advertising? – Could your brand be misrepresenting you? – Has your brand/brand message been the same for more than 4 years? – Do you have any brand/content/company detail inconsistencies online vs on traditional marketing platforms? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these answers, it is time for you to invest in a new or updated brand.
2How long does it take to design a brand?
You’d be surprised at how quick and easy it is for us to build your new brand! We can often rebrand your company in just a few days. We begin by getting to know your business, your history, and your goals moving forward. We determine style preferences, market demographics, and what will have the best impact for your company’s future. We take all that information and design a basis of logo comps and color theories to work off of, then we simply build from there. Do you have an important deadline to meet? Let us help.
3What is the difference between a logo and a brand?
A logo is just a logo – It can do its job by representing your company but doesn’t necessarily mean it fully encompasses your entire business. A professionally designed brand is an entire roadmap to how your company will be represented, both online and in print. A well-designed brand will include a brand book which packages all your brand’s files, typefaces, colors, and the theory behind your brand into a single guide that will aid you in maintaining brand consistency. Brand consistency is very important for all businesses, start-ups and multi-million dollar corporations alike need to maintain cohesion in order to gain customer’s trust.
4Can you design graphics for my business?
Yes! We design flyers, rack cards, business cards, brochures, t-shirts, hats, pins, pens, signs, vinyl decals, vehicle wraps, stickers and more.
5What do I need to provide to begin my new brand?
A meeting is the best place to start. In person, over the phone or Skype. We will ask you questions to get to know your business and your goals, which will aid us in the design process.
6Can you update my existing brand?
We can, especially if you already have a brand book/guide. More often than not, updating to an entirely new brand is more cost effective and beneficial long term. If your designer did not provide “native” files (source files generally produced in Adobe Illustrator), then updating your existing brand may incur more backtracking than otherwise. Starting a new can certainly be more affordable than you think, and provide an updated (accurate) representation of your company.
7What is the design process?
This depends slightly on the design materials, but we implement a process that includes an initial consultation, followed by a round of loose sketches to get ideas flowing. Next, we include refinement of your favorite 2-3 ideas from the simple sketches. Those then get refined with up to 2-3 revisions, and we arrive at a finished product.
Digital Management & Marketing
1I already have a website, why would I want you to manage or market it?
In order to properly answer this question, consider asking yourself a few questions first: – Does your competition look more updated or relevant than you? – Are your customers expressing trouble finding your website? – Will it benefit your company to stay up to date in appearance and technology? – Will it benefit you/your company to transfer the stress/hassle of managing your website to trusted professionals? – Do you need more advertising? – Could you potentially grow your sales online? – Would you like insight from your customers? – Do you want to reach new target markets? – Could you create new opportunities for passive income? – Has your website been the same for more than 6 months? – Do you have any brand/content/company detail inconsistencies online vs on traditional marketing platforms? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these answers, it is time for you to invest in marketing and or management.
2How much does management/marketing cost?
The cost of your management/marketing is based on what level of management/marketing you need, and the technology you need integrated. Your free analysis will aid us in determining an accurate project estimate. The simplest of website management begins at just $50 per month when bundled with hosting. The basic social media channel marketing begins at $300 per month.
3What is SEO?
]SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is the information embedded in your website that tells Google and other search engines a little extra information in where your website belongs within customer’s searches in Google. To remain effective, a site requires a strong setup and ongoing management of the SEO strategy. This allows your website to continue telling the search engines that your content is updated and relevant, and that you should be placed at the top of the search results for your customers. We work with what is known as Organic SEO, meaning we spend our time building the site with relevant information to help you rank better, instead of paying for expensive ad space that can look scammy to customers. We include base level SEO setup in each and every website we build – This includes tagging all your images with keywords that represent your company. This helps you to be in the best position to outrank your competition from the beginning. Just like all marketing, to accurately keep up and continue ranking, you will need to have us manage your SEO on your website, continually re-indexing your site to Google to get the best results.

We believe your website is the most important representation of your business. This means that your website is only as successful as we help you to make it.

This allows your unique selling proposition to shine through and capture your customer’s attention. We rely heavily on customer referrals and repeat business, so our business can only succeed if yours does.
3Who is your ideal client?
Our ideal clients range from small start-up businesses to large corporations, organizations, and everything in between. We thrive with clients who trust our industry knowledge and are ready to work with us to create beautiful digital media – from the web, to graphics, marketing, and photography. We work best with clients who we can work with for years to come, and those who are looking for more than just “a simple quick website”. We spend a lot of time at the beginning of every project getting to know your business, as it’s very important to the success of every project. This information shouldn’t go to waste just because your website is complete, so we prefer being able to continually build on that information and our relationship with our clients.

Yes, our office space is located at 548 Abrego, Monterey CA 93940.
5How big is your team?
We are a big little corporation with a team of 5.

We are run by a husband and wife, and a website designer located in Monterey. We are supported by a telecommute team website developer, and a seo specialist we have worked with for nearly 4 years located in Southern California, where our company got its start. 100% USA based. Family owned and operated. We believe in small business and solid business practices.
