So what are these 12 points you speak of?

 

The truth is that “12 Point” is a simple typographic reference we liked, but if we had to feature a few of our specialties, this would be the dirty dozen.

BUSINESS NAMING

First things first.

LOGO DESIGN

With two packages to choose from, we pride ourselves on designing logos that fit your business, not a set style.

BRANDING DIRECTION

We’ll design the visual aspects that form part of your overall identity and help hammer home your brand.

PRINT COLLATERAL

The devil is in the details, and all we can say is our office is hot. Clean, well designed collateral is our bread & butter.

From awnings and exterior signs to murals and interior graphics, your branding will stand out and look great.

RESTAURANT COLLATERAL

From sports pubs and waterfront dives to casual and upscale dining, we have over 20 years experience designing for restaurants.

You want a clean, good looking, effective website. So do we.

WEBSITE MAINTENANCE

Whether you want editing access to your site or want us to take care of regular or occasional updates, we’re here to help and keep your site current and bug-free.

FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY

We love food . . . and we love taking amazing photos of food that make you want to dive in. It’s a vicious cycle.

VENUE PHOTOGRAPHY

For print collateral and amazing detail shots of your website, we’ll capture images that are the icing on the cake of your brand.

STAFF PHOTOGRAPHY

At the end of the day, we’re all in the people business. Let’s capture your team in their best light.

A picture speaks a thousand words. Try fitting that into a 140-character limit. Exactly.
