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.




Whether it's your 16th birthday or skipped over for lunch, no one likes to be forgotten. You've spent a lot of time, energy and hard work carving out who you are. The people you care about get you, they get dig it and they totally on-board with it. Your besties always remember you, so who cares if you from everyone else here and there? It's they're loss right?


Why wouldn't you do the same with your business? Why wouldn't you want to different?, to connect with those consumers who get you, the ones who really dig you. Best of all, they want to tell everyone they know about you. Your business is the one thing that has to stand out in a crowd. Generic isn't a great look for any business. If I'm being honest it's the complete opposite of great. It's guaranteed death. You're business must be easy to remember, hard to forget.


It might not be that way now, but it doesn't have to stay that way…

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. Generic is doing what everyone else in your industry does. Generic is why most business don’t succeed. Generic is akin to putting a permanently closed sign on the door. Generic = Death.


Brands get you noticed. They get people talking about you, in the right way, to other like minded people. People they like and who get them. People who have the same needs and tastes as they do. Brands make you unforgettable because you’re different. Your easier to talk about in a unique and different way.

I'm guessing the last thing anyone wants
is to be forgotten or go unnoticed.

I've always been of the mind that the way someone dresses, says a lot about that person, especially in business. You’ve always been told: "...dress for the job you want, not the job you have." It's a good common sense principle; if you look and feel "the part", good things will come. I agree with that thinking, in principle. First impressions are more important than ever. You will never really change negative perceptions once they’re there. Those perceptions will always be there, just under the surface. It's why giving the right first impression is THE key to success in business. Brands are how that’s done.

I've always been of the mind...

"..dress for the job you want, not the job you have"  Why would you not do the same with your brand?

generic = death

what WE



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

what can




People Will Want To Be You!


A brand draws consumers to your business like moths to a flame! With that many clients, your bound to drawn impersonators, and that’s a good thing. You must be doing something right!


People Will Talk About You


Brands make networking and word of mouth easier, they're easy to share. Whether in person or on "the internets'" people talking to people about you, in the right way, is



People Will Love Ya’

(And they don’t even know ya….yet!)

Every business needs to grow and expand. To meet new people
 who need the services and benefits you offer. Brands make sharing
your experiences with others more like ____ and less like whisper
down the lane.

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


you should

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...
