At TruDesign Studio, we recognize that projects can be complex and composed of a variety of elements. To us, projects become successful by working closely with our clients to gain a complete understanding of their goals and objectives and following a disciplined process to achieve those goals. Together we achievesuccess through four basic steps:
In an effort to ensure proper needs are met, TruDesign Studio puts considerable focus into understanding the objectives and goals of the client. TruDesign Studio works closely with its clients to ascertain all of the nuances of the project. Starting with a discovery profiler designed to pull information, we incorporate interviews with client staff, research of competitors, trends, and other pertinent information, all in effort to create the perfect custom piece. This approach is critical in our ability to complete all aspects of a project including: Schedule, Market Research, Strategic, Creative and Technical Briefs, Basic Content understanding, Site map development and Functional Design Specs.
Upon completion of the Design phase, when a clear consensus has been achieved, development begins. The development phase is the actual building of the design or application. During this phase the project goes through many iterations including: production, engineering, Alpha, Beta, etc. Throughout this process, TruDesign Studio applies a rigorous quality assurance methodology to ensure the integrity of the work.
Once the discovery process is complete, the information is compiled and becomes the basis of direction for the Design phase. Our artists spend time with content identification, development, and schedule. This phase could also be considered a concept phase, incorporating prototypes and working models. This gives the client an opportunity to visualize the idea and feel comfortable with the direction of the project before any development work has begun.
Finally, it is time to deploy your work, or deliver. Development has stopped, content is frozen and the staging has been prepared. More quality assurance is performed, all documentation is completed and reviewed, a pre-flight check is done and the product is launched. An exciting time for our clients, TruDesign Studio is driven to ensure that everything is delivered as requested, on time and within budget.
Usable, beautiful, and effective websites, website design, social media marketing, and search engine optimization or SEO. We feel that companies do not build infrastructures, create new sales channels or increase marketing investments without understanding their underlying objectives. Intelligent website design, web development, web implementation, SEO, and web maintenance requires a combination of thought and action. This is achieved by integrating business and creative strategies to ensure that the overall project will meet our clients’ multiple needs. Tru Design Studio, takes on every project with an inter-disciplinary, dynamic, flexible, and sustainable web design solution philosophy.
Logo Design, Branding, and Corporate Identity is more than just a name, look or slogan. It’s the overall image of a company at all points of contact. Many factors influence a brand’s power, personality, and relevance. Good branding and logo design means “communicating the value proposition in a clear message to the right audience in a manner they especially appreciate.” This is not as subjective as many creative companies may believe. Understanding the critical points of positioning, market nuances, and response logo design evokes, is the key to excellent brand efforts. At TruDesign Studio LLC, we have designed numerous logos, branding, and identity packages for a variety of clients. One of our most famous was the Blue Planet Water Solutions logo we did for Kevin Costner’s company which was contracted by BP to help with the Oil Disaster in the Gulf of Mexico a few years ago. Our designs and illustrations were even featured on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 on the anniversary of the Blue Water Horizon Oil Disaster.
At TruDesign Studio, we believe in clean, timeless design that will hold it’s splender for a lifetime. Our designer works closely with our clients to make sure we’ve provided the exact look and feel that they are looking to achieve. Our small southern California graphic design studio believes in giving the client EXACTLY what they ask for. We believe in and follow a philosophy that a “project is not complete until the client is happy” . TruDesign Studio will redesign your logo until we have “hit the nail on the head”, so to say.
