Workspace Branding

Workspace Branding

What is Workspace Branding?


We believe the fastest way to impact not only the perception customers have of your business, but also the culture within your company is by changing your space. 

Your space may be many different things, but a great place to start is the physical space in your office, your lobby, your dinning area, your vehicle, your exterior signage, etc. Changing these things shouldn't be taken lightly because the space you create often, if not always, dramatically effects the success of your business.

Your space not only directly (and indirectly) effects your monetary bottom line, but it also plays very much into how your staff feel about the place they work. A professionally branded workspace can't help but give your employees added pride in the place they work.

And, of course, a well-branded workspace works wonders on the perception customers and potential customers have about your company. So much so that they value your business enough to pay extra for your services.

Don't Forget to Think Outside of the Box


Your workspace is more than the walls around you. It's also your vehicles, your website, even your business cards and stationery, your forms, your trade show displays and every single channel you use to communicate.

I've seen so many of our clients change their prospects for success by simply sitting down with our team and discussing their overall brand and how to make it communicate the message they want people to hear and then getting to work on building it together.

Often it takes an outside perspective to express your vision and know from experience how to convey that to the world. We know what's working every day for clients in your industry because we work with them every day and have the epxerience of over 30 years of what works as a foundation to help you build a solid, long-standing brand.

It All Starts Here


Your brand shouldn't be pieced together from online ordering websites who attempt to template you. You need to talk with a person working with a team of people who get where you're coming from and who are invested in taking you where you want to go.

We use the technology behind BRANDGUIDE.PRO to help you organize the development of your brand. To request new services and track our progress. To organize existing materials and keep your brand consistent across many departments. Behind it all is your rep who is supported by our business development, marketing, design and production teams. 

It's easy to get started. Just click the Contact menu and make contact with us.

You need this. Let's get to work today.

Logo Design


By Bryan Baker, 2016-01-04
Logo Design

We take logo design seriously. We've worked with companies for over 30 years and we've seen trends come and go, but there a few essential ingredients to any professional logo which all boil down to how well it communicates your brand.

Communicating your brand is where it gets complicated and many companies lose consistent brand direction by being inconsistent when they communicate.

  • No control over logo usage
  • Color changes from printer to printer, marketing to design
  • Stretching logos
  • Low resolution prints
  • Inconsistent taglines
  • Shadows, backgrounds, silhouettes
  • No brand guide
  • No brand management controls
  • Ad hoc ordering
  • No central storage/access for branded art files
  • Inconsistent signage
  • Inconsistent fonts

BRANDGUIDE.PRO has been created to help fix all of these common mistakes by providing a tool to manage creating and ordering materials throughout your entire company. We believe it's always a good idea to start out on the right path and choosing us for your logo design ensures your path is consistent.

Our Approach to Logo Design


We approach every new logo design by meeitng with you via Skype, Facetime, Google Hangouts, or phone. This way, we get a feel for your company which can't be understood by simply submitting a written brief to a crowdsource design outlet.

Then we get to work. If you have a good idea about what your logo should look like, we'll give you an initial professional design to match. If your ideas are not so certain, we'll start by providing a few different ideas to help get us going down the right path. These initial ideas may be wildly different since what we're trying to do here is see what your response is to different directions. At this point, negative reactions are as productive as positive ones.

It may take two or more rounds of proofs before we arrive at the perfect logo for your company -- one that communicates your brand across every modern channel and, most importantly, one that you absolutely love.

Are You Ready?


So let's get started. Click the link below and you'll be on your way -- satisfaction guaranteed.

Web Design

Our Process


Our website development program is tailored specifically to creating and managing the kind of website that will help your company successfully engage with new and current customers.

We understand that while there are a few essentials that every website requires, every business has different needs and the look of your website must build upon your brand and its recognition with your loyal customers.

That's why we don't take a template cookie cutter approach when it comes to your website. You'll meet with our design and marketing teams (in person, skype or phone) so that we get a real feel for what makes your company special and then we get to work creating a website to express that.

Tailored to Every Budget


If you're concerned about staying within a budget, be assured that we work with every kind of budget to deliver great websites at every level. For those just starting out we can usually create a very effective presence with expert SEO (people will find you) for under $700. We can also create extra pages, photo galleries, video, social media integration and more for those with bigger ideas -- we'll discuss all of those options and how they might work for you.

Examples

How to Keep It Updated


Many of you may have started a website one or more times only to have it grow outdated over time because your web designer moved on or updating it became such a hassle to fit into your busy schedule. We've created our optional Website Management package to specifically address that problem and make requesting updates and regular changes as easy as possible -- just use our Work Request tracker to submit updates to our team and track their progress. This monthly subscription includes website updates, support, monthly analytic reports and consultation with our marketing team to keep your website current and engaging your audience.

Go to our Premium Services page to subscribe.
