Of course we design the other elements of our clients' stationeries as well: Beautiful envelopes in any size, letterheads, invoices and other accounting forms, all kinds of cards and folders. If it can be printed, OMc can design it.

Business Cards

We find the strength of our designs within the companies we work for. Rather then applying the same design principles to all projects, we carefully chose what makes the most sense and should deliver the biggest bang. We devise a strategy for our clients that presents their identity consistently and appropriately while also using innovative and unexpected designs to elevate their brand and marketing.

This elegant card was done for a high end real estate development in Lafayette, CA. It uses metallic colors, spot UV, edge painting, embossing and one sided die-cutting for a luxurious statement.

OMc can desgin and produce posters and signage on eco board, eco foam, Sentra board, wood, canvas, metal, glass, vinyl, frosted acrylic or lit up signs. Any size, any shape, any material.

We have done signage graphics to elegantly and efficiently cover windows and doors, to be hung from walls, columns and ceilings or to be mounted to the floor. We have designed signs and environmental graphics in any size and can assist with the printing, production and the installation if desired.

Signage

For many clients we design smart, durable and easy to read signage for their offices, stores, studios or exhibits. We understand the need for signs to stand out in visually busy environments, and for them to be safe, readable and yet memorable and clear.

Feedback summary: 

The business wouldn’t be a success without the engaging website and creative logo OMc Design Group made. Their team is skilled, hardworking, and personable. They are dedicated to providing quality service and educating their clients. Their faithfulness and devotion spurred continued engagement.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My business is Biondi Ceramics. I’m a sculptor and artist.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design Group?

I became a client of theirs before social media and those technologies were prevalent. Usually, artists don’t have a professional website, so I hired OMc Design Group to create a fresh and engaging site that would take my business to the next level. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Christoph (Senior Creative Director, OMc Design Group) developed and designed my website and logo from scratch. He’s done photography work for me, designed graphics and create slideshows. He’s produced several print collateral materials such as business cards, signage, event pamphlets, and printouts for my customers.

What is the team composition?

Christoph is my primary contact. I’ve worked with around ten team members throughout the years.

How did you come to work with OMc Design Group?

I was at a business art event with sculptors, designers, and photographers. I came across Christoph right when I was looking for someone to do work for me. I took his business card and then engaged with OMc Design Group.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent between $10,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with OMc Design Group in 2002, and the work is ongoing based on my needs.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Anytime I have new products or an event coming up, I go to Christoph for his expertise. It’s a special ongoing business relationship. My whole business runs through the website. I’m personally connected to OMc Design Group’s work. I loved the modern designs on my site and received a lot of compliments from it. My art studio has done websites with Christoph as well. I’m old-fashioned with my business, and this site has been a great success. OMc Design Group delivered everything I wanted and more.

How did OMc Design Group perform from a project management standpoint?

When I sat down with Christoph, I asked him to guide me through everything, and somehow, he made my thoughts and ideas come true. He is patient with me. I learn a lot working with OMc Design Group, and I’m able to speak their lingo. He explains their process and how specific programs work. After years of rapport with Christoph, I go directly to him through email, but he will sit down with me anytime I want. Their team is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and delivers work on time. OMc Design Group treats me like their number one client.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their history and loyalty are what makes OMc Design Group stand out from the crowd today. I highly recommend working with their team. I can’t say enough.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing they can do to improve. I’m fortunate to have met Christoph at that event and will stick with their company until the end.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take a chance and give them a call today. You won’t regret it, and may even be pleasantly surprised.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of a development company. We do contract work for clients in the area of analytical chemistry and biotech.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design Group?

We needed an experienced design firm to assist our business development efforts by creating marketing materials.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

OMc Design Group provides the graphic design services for our online marketing content. They also create our print deliverables such as letterheads, envelopes, brochures, and business cards. Their team handled the design and production of print and electronic pieces for our case studies. Christoph (Senior Creative Director, OMc Design Group) arranged those deliverables into a comprehensive marketing folder.

We’ve since hired them to design another round of stationary for us. Additionally, we’re gearing up to work with them on the content that’ll accompany some recent success stories.

What is the team composition?

Christoph is our primary point of contact.

How did you come to work with OMc Design Group?

I had used other firms in the past but was in search for an alternative group locally available. After searching online through various outlets, I found OMc Design Group and reached out to Christoph. They seemed like a good fit for us, so we gave them a test project. Our business relationship evolved from there.

What is the status of this engagement?

We first hired them in September 2014, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve experienced incremental successes since working with OMc Design Group. Our brand’s image and presentation are much improved from previous iterations. From a business standpoint, their materials garner respect from customers and help generate references. Thanks to their work, we’re more confident in the brand’s ability to interact with and entice potential customers. I’m absolutely convinced that they’ve been integral to our continued growth as a company.

How did OMc Design Group perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re about as good as it gets. I’ve worked with a lot of service provider over the years, so I can confidently say that Christoph is top-notch. We communicate over the phone, through emails, and hold in-person meetings.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They offer a personalized approach instead of rushing to complete each project. Christoph knows what he’s doing and will work on a design until we’re satisfied. The community we serve is traditional and averse to risks, so it’s challenging to create modern designs that captivate them. OMc Design Group utilizes an in-depth iteration process that yields multiple product options. As a result, we’re able to select what works best for our audience. Also, it’s nice having access to a firm we trust and can work with over time.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I can’t think of anything relative to my needs.

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design?

Though we’ve worked with OMc Design on other projects, for this one we needed their help refining and conveying our business identity.

SOLUTION

To begin, we had several in-depth discovery meetings. We explained our positioning within the industry, who our customer base is, and the message we wanted to send to them. After this, OMC Design worked with us to create a logo to base the brand around.

From there, they helped make significant modifications to our website and created other collateral to match our new identity.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of marketing at a public policy advocacy organization that represents major players in the Bay Area. We advocate on behalf of business interests in areas such as housing, transportation, energy, and a myriad of others.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design Group?

Our organization’s major events require professional and elaborate graphic design materials that need to be outsourced. We prefer working with vendors in our region, so we hired OMc Design Group after doing our research.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Since we began working with them five years ago, OMc Design Group has delivered a total of ten event graphic packages for our organization. Our two major events bring it over a million dollars towards our operating budget each year. One event is an annual awards gala, and the other is a thought leadership conference.

They’ve designed print and digital materials. In an attempt to be more sustainable and cost-effective, we’ve moved away from printed invitations. OMc Design Group created designs for Save the Dates, printed programs, web pages, banners, signage, and other products.

What is the team composition?

Christoph (Senior Creative Director, OMc Design Group) was our main point of contact.

How did you come to work with OMc Design Group?

We found Christoph on Thumbtack. I browsed his site and was impressed with the content and his clients. Their price was also right for our organization. He offered a competitive nonprofit rate.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $50,000–$200,000 so far. When we were using their print materials service, it was in the $20,000–$25,000 range per event. With digital designs, it’s been $9,000–$10,000 for each event.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with OMc Design Group in January 2014. Their latest work for an event was completed in November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve received compliments from C-Suite level employees and political leaders. These groups receive invitations frequently throughout the year. It’s fantastic that ours stand out. People comment on the look and feel of our materials.

How did OMc Design Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Christoph is extremely responsive. He offers between eight or nine concepts in the ideation phase. This helps our team go through what we like and don’t like, and ideas we’ve seen before and want to pivot in a different direction. Christoph is considerate of the style of our organization, grasping what our goals are when deciding on design elements.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate their modern and edgy style. We’re a traditional organization, and Christoph can balance our corporate style with flair. He caters to our goals as a nonprofit organization.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, Christoph listened to feedback and quickly addressed any issue that came up.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear on what you are looking for! OMc Design Group is very talented, enabling them to zero in on client needs effectively.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was the founder and CEO of Pilljogger Inc, which is no longer around. It was one of the first digital health companies with a medication adherence app to remind people to take their medicines.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design Group?

I needed help with the branding and the logo for the company.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

OMc Design Group designed the logo and templates for our website. They also made business cards and banners for trade shows, as well as some 3D animations that we used in marketing. Anything that had to do with graphic design or illustration was given to OMC.

I also used them for another startup that was a demand-oriented website for scheduling physicians or health offices. That was a completely different style of branding. It was much more classic and conservative.

What is the team composition?

I mainly worked with Christoph (senior creative director, OMc Design Group). He brought in a 3D animation specialist as needed.

How did you come to work with OMc Design Group?

I’d been using another firm but I wasn’t happy with their work. I asked various people in the startup world for their recommendations and one of them gave me Christoph’s name. We met and I saw some of his work and decided to start working together.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent between $50,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from 2011–2013.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I was very happy with their work. Everybody we worked with was happy. We created t-shirts using some of his logos and artwork and they were quite popular.

How did OMc Design Group perform from a project management standpoint?

OMc Design Group was superb. Christoph was a real professional who went above and beyond. He didn't treat us just as an account. He really immersed himself in the work because he wanted the business to succeed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Christoph was easy to work with and clearly wanted to do a good job. It was night and day compared to the firm that I used before. His creative abilities and his initiative set him apart.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The same advice I would give for any company is to set parameters and make sure everybody is on the same page. Be clear about what work is expected and the cost of doing the work so that there's no misunderstanding. OMc Design Group performed well in regards to what we expected to get for the money and the time frame.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company is Bay Print solutions. We're a small business print shop that focuses on architecture, engineering, and graphics.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design Group?

We needed help with branding—particularly a new logo design—for a relatively new business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

OMc Design Group met with us for a number of discussions about what we're looking for. In addition to the logo, they've created brochures, flyers, and business cards. They created graphics for an open house as well. They come up with either a modification of an existing design or new designs from scratch. There's usually three or four rounds of revision back and forth. Usually what they'll do is give us five or six different versions of a design. We discuss it and then pick the one we liked best. Then that one will get further refined until we land on the final version.

What is the team composition?

I primarily work with Christoph (senior creative director, OMc Design Group).

How did you come to work with OMc Design Group?

I previously worked with them when I was the general manager of a different company. Bay Print has only been in business for about seven months, and I brought OMc Design Group in about six months ago.

How much have you invested with them?

We're committed to about $10,000 but we've only spent $5,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2018 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

When we started, we didn't have any brochures or handouts. Those plus the professional logo really create legitimacy for our business. Their work definitely helped us modernize everything, which is important since we work with a lot of designers and interior architects.

How did OMc Design Group perform from a project management standpoint?

Christoph does a good job at staying on task. We have a list of projects that we’re working on. I haven't had any problem getting projects delivered by our deadline. We primarily communicate over email. We’ll occasionally talk over the phone if there's something going back and forth a number of times. He will also come in to our office as needed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

OMc Design Group is quite thorough. They hit all the subtleties in each design so that everything fits together and feels like it’s part of one idea. That consistency is really great.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their prices aren’t the cheapest but that's expected if you want a talented designer. I occasionally think he could work a little quicker, but that's not been a significant issue. So far, I don't have any big complaints.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be prepared. There's going to be some back and forth and Christoph expects client involvement. He's very good at putting together options and working with the client to really hone in on what you're looking for.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with OMc Design Group?

We needed help with many different marketing challenges.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve created marketing pieces for us at a local level, primarily in the San Francisco area. It’s one of our bigger markets, so we’ve asked them to they’ve worked on marketing brochures and graphic displays for our stores, including window and lobby displays.

We typically give them an idea of where we’re trying to go, based on which they’ll come up with design items. They determine the look for our offices through a creative approach.

They’ve designed fliers, catalogs, storefront materials, and calendars. We’ve recently moved our location, so they were tasked with making a preannouncement to our customers via fliers, email, and lobby displays. After the move, they began a campaign to market an open house for our new location.

What is the team composition?

I’ve always worked directly with Christoph (Senior Creative Director, OMc Design Group).

How did you come to work with OMc Design Group?

I was introduced to Christoph by a coworker in 2010 and never considered anyone else. The conversations I had with him and the rest of the team instilled a lot of confidence in me. They understood what our needs were and presented very good marketing campaigns for us. It seemed to be the right fit.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in September 2010.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We haven’t tracked any metrics for their work, but our employees have always appreciated the marketing pieces. There’s consistency in the window displays we have, from one store to the next.

Christoph is easy to work with; he’s the kind of person we’d want to have on-staff as he understands what we’re trying to accomplish.

How did OMc Design Group perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve always provided timely design deliverables for us to review and critique, and then meet the deadlines we set.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s easy to work with them, so they’ve been a good match for us. They understand what we’re trying to achieve in the marketing and advertising space, and they have their finger on the pulse of our industry.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have any critiques. We work together smoothly, and it’s nice to be on the same page. Our objectives are very similar, and their design work is contemporary and clever.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I’d definitely recommend having a talk with Christoph. It’s easy to do business and to communicate with him, as long as you express your ideas and goals. I believe that’ll lead to a happy working relationship.
