Why Choose Us?
1. We’re experienced
This should be one of your most important criteria when hiring a marketing firm. Compass Creative specializes in brand development and online marketing. We’ve been around the block more than a few times and have become ridiculously good at telling a business story – online and in print.
2. We think first
We do our best work when we’re able to truly collaborate, identify issues, measure impact, and think creatively before acting. We don’t guess. Unfortunately, this also means we typically won’t engage in a speculative RFP process (a request which can only result in guesswork and formulaic solutions).
3. We believe in clear communication
We like to keep things simple and straightforward. We talk about difficult things like fit, price and timing early in the process because we don’t want to waste your time or ours. Every project starts with formal estimates and signed approvals. After that it’s all about the work we love.
4. We’re inquisitive
We ask a lot of questions, so come prepared to talk in depth about your organization, its history and its goals. We need to work with the owners throughout the entire process, and get some preliminary input from other stakeholders as well. We ask for feedback and approvals at various stages (like with research results, idea boards, concepts and final revisions), so the availability and involvement of the decision makers will be critical.
5. We keep it real
We’re professional but down to earth. We’re creative but objective. We embrace complexity but speak in plain language. We keep our strategy straightforward and workable. We believe that a couple pages of clear recommendations are far more effective than a 100-page strategy document collecting dust on a shelf. Our design work is creative, yet clean, effective and on target.
6. We’re balanced
Our team believes in hard work but we also value our time with our families and friends in our own communities. We seek to balance our lives between both of those worlds.
7. We deliver more than a new brand or website
You can expect your organization to feel a new energy when the project is completed. You will feel true ownership of the product we deliver, and a renewed certainty in the course you’re taking.
8. We take our work seriously…but not ourselves
We believe in having fun and making the branding process an enjoyable one for our clients. We wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t challenge the status quo, but we’re respectful about it. We’ve also learned that great ideas flow more freely in a culture where people are happy, free and confident enough to laugh at themselves.
We’d be lying if we said we did all these things perfectly everyday but that’s what we’re striving for and it’s why you’ll appreciate working with us.
