5 Reasons to be Grateful for a Creative Studio
It's the season of giving thanks, and there are so many reasons to be thankful this year!
Whether we're building a brand from scratch, implementing new strategies, or creating fresh new brand initiatives, at Quill, we feel incredibly lucky to be able to use our creative skills to boost our clients’ success and take them to new levels.
Check out our five reasons to be grateful for a creative studio, and read about what all of us at Quill feel grateful for, too!
1. We know your brand like the back of our hand.
When a creative branding studio like Quill works with your business, you'll never have to worry about holding anyone's hand to get the job done. Because your brand is always our main focus, you'll never have to worry that we've lost sight of the grander mission. We'd even go so far as to say we often know your brand better than you do - and that's a good thing!
No matter where your business is in the branding process, from building something new to managing long-term strategies, working with a creative studio ensures that there's always someone who's got your company's vision, mission, and brand success, top of mind.
"Working with Quill on our annual report always leaves us with a compelling and impactful piece that helps tell our story and illustrate how we are living out our mission. We are always excited to share the finished product with our donors and partners."
Lisa Endl, Director of Communications, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin
2. We have a tried and true process for success.
Not everyone has the time or creative skills to bring a brand to life. If you're running a business, you're already probably wearing a lot of different hats, and brand management often tends to fall to the wayside. While outsourcing branding needs is a smart decision for companies, you want to be sure you work with a studio that knows how to meld the enigmatic chaos of creativity with the dependability of a tested process.
At Quill, we have a well-honed branding process that gives us the space to flex our creativity within parameters that we know reliably yield branding success.
"We have had an incredible response from our customers since rebranding with Quill. The entire rebranding process was fun and exciting and really opened the door to getting our company to the next level. In addition to increased revenue, Quill's creative strategy beautifully rejuvenated our look and feel and helped us educate and inspire our customer base. Their team is full of talented true creatives, and we really look forward to future projects together."
Brittany Thurman, Creative Director, linerworld
3. Our connections are your connections.
At Quill, we pride ourselves on being masters of our craft, which means we also know when your brand implementation requires something we can't offer. When you work with experts like the creatives at Quill, you're also getting access to a wide range of other high-quality professionals. From web development to marketing services to copywriting and more - if your company needs something outside the realm of Quill's services, we've still got you covered.
Being connected to our network of partners means you don't have to spend a lot of time you don't have finding the services you need and explaining your brand identity over and over. You'll be able to work with reliable professionals to ensure that your brand is well-represented across the spectrum of the brand experience.
"The Quill team was creative, professional, and they clearly understood the bigger picture of our merger and rebrand. They adapted well to a changing environment and were solid partners with us on this project."
Joe Mauthe, Executive Director, Pillars
4. Our focus is your brand. Full stop.
There are a lot of people and agencies out there that offer branding services, but unless branding is their expertise, you probably aren't getting your money's worth. Branding is so much more than web development, graphic design, copywriting, or marketing. And while all those niches are an important part of constructing a brand experience, none are actually the foundation upon which a brand is built.
At Quill, our focus is branding, and that's it. That means when we work with your company, you'll get 100% of our time and energy invested into creating your brand identity, brand strategy, and brand management innovations - because that's our specialty!
"On a scale of 100 for expectations I'd humbly give Quill a score of 200… The discovery, creative and implementation stages could not have gone smoother from my perspective as your typical/busy business owner. Quill invested the time to truly understand my company's history, personality, character, products, services and most importantly our customer base. The end product has taken our brand to a level that I frankly believe to be genius."
Matt Miller, President, Harry Miller Companies
5. We take the confusion out of branding.
Branding your company is high-level creative work, and unless you have specific expertise in branding, it can be overwhelming to figure out where to start. You may have a vague idea of your company's mission and a vision for its identity in your head, but if you don't have an expert creative studio like Quill guiding your brand, it is very easy to get lost in the weeds.
Many companies come to us with branding needs but have no idea where to start. Quill knows how to ask the right questions and quickly identify the best place to start. Having a creative studio at the helm of your branding journey means you don't have to worry about the complexities of the branding process, getting off track, or being inconsistent with the creation and implementation of your brand.
"The Quill team was excellent to work with on our branding project. We were starting from scratch with no existing identity, but also had multiple stakeholders with vested interest which could have complicated the process. Ryan and the team were able to listen to our needs, research the limited examples in the market, and create something that reflected our asset. I greatly appreciated their ability to work with our project manager to keep things moving, but also the ability to present to the greater committee for feedback and approvals."
Tricia Rathermel, President & Ceo, Greater Oshkosh Economic Development Corporation
