At Oblique, we’ve been thinking a lot about what we do as a Colorado design agency and how it creates unique value for each and every client we’ve worked with over the years. It has enabled them to grow, thrive and prosper in their respective industries.
Simply put, design unlocks better business: better thinking, better insights, better products and services, and better customer experiences. With so any choices available to customers in an ever-changing marketplace, companies must ensure their products and services are meaningful and relevant. The value design offers business today and tomorrow is now more important than ever.
Brands like Apple, Sony and Nike, to name a few, have created their wealth through design-led thinking. And, there are a great number of lesser-known companies providing valued products and services at a premium to their loyal customers, often within very niche markets.
No matter what industry you’re in, design — including the look and feel of your brand ID, website, logo, social media profiles, marketing collateral, etc. — is vital in helping you hook customers with a great first impression. As a small or large business, this can mean the difference between gaining an edge over your competitors and turning customers off completely. That’s why it’s so crucial to invest the necessary time and resources in a visually pleasing, well-designed brand presence.
Designers have always been recognized for their sound user insights and ability to deliver creative solutions. When businesses harness ‘designer-like’ thinking across the entire business model they cultivate dynamic cultures, more desirable products and services, faster growth and passionate customers.
Design does matter, and not necessarily in a way that people realize. If design is doing its job, it is managing your perception of an experience in many ways—both obvious and not so obvious. How you feel, and therefore whether you’re going to engage and buy, is directly influenced by the design of a website, a package or a business card.
With so many off-the-shelf design templates, tools, ready-to-go logos, business cards, themed websites, etc, companies both large and small require more than ever the skills and expertise that a professional design agency brings to the table. What does that mean? Unique, custom, intelligent and organically crafted design that gives you the edge and helps you stand out from the crowd vs conform.
