Creativity that Accelerates Brands

You need someone who can turn your product into a brand that people want to buy. That's our speciality. We call it branding, but basically its knowing how to write words, take pictures, make graphics, and present it all in a nice way that gets people to buy your stuff. We use our creativity to do that really well. And, based on what people tell us, that's a hard thing to find.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Deal Design, Inc.?

We needed to create branding for the U.S. market.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We wanted a local designer who specialized in branding. We needed their expertise to suggest some creative branding ideas and a logo design for us. The goal was to come up with air fresheners that looked like perfume.

We went through an initial discovery phase where we looked at basic drawings and discussed the name, varieties, colors, and samples. They helped with product packaging and set up the catalog, website, and tradeshow booths for us. They also helped us to repackage the existing branding which we use in a different country.

We were mostly in contact with their senior art director.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The way they manage and communicate is good. You don’t have to ask them to do something several times. If they promise it will be done, it’ll be on time.
