The first thing your customers will experience is your brand and logo.
A New Brand
One of the biggest mistakes new business owners make is ignoring their brand or identity altogether. Instead, their marketing material becomes of a hodgepodge of different ideas, which results in an identity crises for the business, and a lack of professional appearance.
Your brand will be the foundation that all of your marketing material will be built upon. This includes stationary like your business cards, your website, and the sign posted outside of your office.
We provide a branding and identity package which provides this foundation for your company.
Eventually there comes a time to revisit your current brand and make an update. This isn’t a complete overhaul, instead, you can think of it as a fresh coat of paint.
Working With You
We will work directly with your company to discover your unique abilities and traits and create a brand that best projects your business to the world.
Whether you are located down the street from us or on the east coast, we’re able to effectively communicate with you during the entire branding process.
We will meet with you in person, over the phone, through email, or even video conference. Whichever method is most comfortable for you.
All of our clients experience excellent customer service at all times. If you call or email us, we get back to within that day (or the next at the latest). You will not be waiting for a response and wonder if we’ve decided to jump ship.
We’ve heard the horror stories and we’ve learned from others mistakes.
I have worked with Shawn at Graticle for three years, which should speak volumes in and of itself. I am a high school teacher and serve as the Coordinator for the AVID program. Each August-September we create new t-shirts for distribution to all 140 of our students, along with supportive members of the faculty, staff, and administration.
My team of AVID teachers brainstorms ideas for both the front and back of the shirt, and I present the best one or two concepts to Shawn for his expert feedback. We quickly settle on the best design idea and colors, and then Shawn and I bounce more detailed suggestions off each other for a few days. His suggestions always result in significant improvements to my rough concept. He presents me with graphic “rough drafts” at each stage of our discussion until we have a design I’m really happy with.
Shawn then works his magic, and the final design is the work of a consummate professional. We get tons of compliments on our shirts, starting with our t-shirt printer, and usually end up having to do a second print run for additional faculty and staff who want one of the shirts. This year, a middle school in Southern California saw the design and asked if they could use it.
Another positive aspect of working with Graticle is that Shawn is easy to reach by phone or email, and he is very responsive. I hear back from him either the same day or the next day.
Working with Shawn and Graticle has been a pleasure, He produces good work quickly and at a fair price. I recommend him to you without reservation.
Excellent service and quality work with a team that really listens and delivers on their word! Call them to update your website!
Huge Shout-Out to Graticle Design for their amazing work on our agency’s Run the Path logo design for this year. Shawn Hooghkirk was easy to work with, super efficient and paid great attention to detail. If anyone needs any graphic design or website design he is the guy to go to!
Graticle Design is such a great company to work with! We are a nonprofit mental health agency and we use Graticle whenever we can! They always manage to make my visions come to life and somehow they do it on the first try! We will continue using them as long as we have projects to give them! I highly recommend Graticle!
Graticle started in 2009 out of Ridgefield, Washington. Not the ideal time to start a business (with a recession in full) but we’ve figured out how to stay ahead of the curve and work harder and better than the other guys. We started out with one thing in mind: Clients. We realized that a project is what you’re after but that’s not all. Our clients not only love what we create but also receive great care and appreciation throughout and after their project is completed. Need more proof? Read any one of our 94 customer reviews.
