Within your community or to the limits of the Internet,
we get your message to whomever you choose.


One of the first meetings we have with customers is to establish the style for each company. We can create a more elaborate style guide of several pages or something as simple as the following color chart. These guides provide different color codes for the different media so that we can maintain the same colors whether printed, on an Internet website, or on video. Yes, there are Pantone color codes as well... if you know Pantone, you probably don't need the chart below ☺ However, Pantone colors are for print and do not translate directly into video work and can be limited for web design.

Depending on the demographic target you choose, your customers could mainly be viewing your online information through their cell phones. It is important to know the difference of how to promote Facebook ads to show up on cell phones. Or, how to properly implement websites (hint: if it's flashy and blinking, it probably isn't friendly to cell phones).
We frequently use YouTube pre-roll advertising knowing that the message is very effective on cell phones as well as on computers.
