Design Not Decoration
Design without purpose and intention is merely decoration — smart, strategic design solves problems and hits defined targets.
Design matters. When done right, it affects consumer perceptions, establishes relevance, builds credibility, enhances professionalism, and creates trust with your audience — It can’t just be pretty, it must actually work to trigger emotions, drive action, and make sales.
That’s why we keep it simple and focus on what matters most. We listen, dissect the problem, research the landscape and constraints, evaluate the possibilities, and offer solutions that meet the goals of our clients and the needs of their audience.
Creativity Through Collaboration
Great ideas are only as good as their practical application, which in turn is only as good as the team behind it.
We believe that close collaboration between our clients and our team of designers, developers, and strategists, encourages new ideas, shapes creative strategies, creates cohesive solutions, and pushes past traditional boundaries to create extraordinary results.
Before we even talk about design, we first get to know you, your brand, and your business. We approach form and function simultaneously, clarifying objectives and constraints, uncovering challenges, and exploring how to turn your brand story into a visual adventure for your audience.
We’re passionate about open source and WordPress and have been developing solely on the platform since 2008.
We fell in love with WordPress because it puts our clients in control of their websites and empowers them to quickly and easily edit and publish content anywhere at anytime (even in the middle of the night in their pajamas from their smartphones).
We’re big believers in giving back and supporting the WordPress project and community. That’s why you’ll often find members of our team attending and speaking at WordCamps, WordPress Meetup groups, other WordPress related events, and business conferences.
Sacramento And Beyond
We grew up in the suburbs of Sacramento, went to Sacramento State, and co-organize the Sacramento WordPress Meetup group.
We’re a full service design studio and Genesis recommended developer located just outside Sacramento, California, that offers a comprehensive suite of services, including brand design, graphic design, web design, WordPress development, and digital strategy.
As a partially distributed company, we occasionally co-work in our Roseville office, and the rest of the time we work remotely with our team, our partners, and our clients by using tools like Basecamp, HipChat, Google Hangouts, Skype, GitHub, and Dropbox.
