ABOUT US

OUR PASSION

We are passionate about brands! Brands are at the core of every business. The ability of your brand to connect with consumers is vital to your success. If your brand isn’t connecting, you’re losing sales. That’s not good for anyone!

 

At the Design Office, we work one on one with our clients to hone and revitalize their existing brands. We won’t change your brand, that’s crazy talk. What we will do is work with you to find new ways of speaking and communicating about your brand to not only your current clients, but potential future clients as well. We’ve been doing it a long time and we’ve helped hundreds…we can help you too!

Though we’ve made the claim that we created and designed the question mark, we can’t back that up.

We learned how to design back in the days before digital, if you remember stat cameras and printing presses, we have lots to talk about.

WHO IS 
E. H. HOWARD?

E. H. built the Design Office on a idea: Affordable Branding For Small Business. Branding and marketing became synonymous a long time ago. Focusing on branding and marketing separately only leads to failure. Focusing on sole on branding we naturally and organically cover any and all marketing points effectively and consistently. We bring his the big, corporate in-house experience to small businesses. We act like the marketing department businesses had in the past.

You know, the one right down the hall, next to the water cooler, there on the left, you can’t miss the Design Office. You can pick up the phone, ask a question, email us and ask our opinion.

 

We don’t charge for any of that, it’s all part of the affordable in-house services.

HOW WE SEE THE WORLD

Branding and Marketing have come to mean many things. Most of which are a far cry from the original in many ways. We see branding and marketing in more traditional terms.

 

 

OF BRANDING

OF BRANDING

These days, it feels like marketing is all negotiation, a dance to convince the consumer. Sure it might feel that way, but it doesn’t have to be. Marketing is stories about your brand.

There’s a science to branding.

There’s no formula for success. It’s more like alchemy than chemistry, but when the right elements combine in just the right way, it’s explosive.

Every day we move closer to being a pictographic culture. More than ever there’s a requirement on everyone to condense large amounts of information and content down into a simple visual.
