Not all designers are created equal.

They offer new and different ideas without being asked, with thoughtful consideration of the clients' needs and budgets.

Not to say that some are necessarily better than others, but sometimes you get what you pay for. It’s so easy to go online and get a custom logo, invitation, or graphic for any minuscule amount of money these days… but are you files going to be print-ready? will your printer accept them? will the information be correct? can you find this designer again if and when you have a problem? Unfortunately, the answer is "probably not". 

One of our clients, Bradstreet Englert Creative, loves to work with us because we provide "truly print-ready designs”. She can easily commiserate about "the number of graphic designers who are unable to do this”. With our background in print production, we think through the whole project so that you’re not left with any surprises in the end. We make sure that the files you get are appropriate for your project and intent so that it’s easier for you in the long run.

You may think, “yeah, but what’s that going to cost me”. Nothing. We don’t charge you any extra for our forethought or experience. We are always thoughtful of our clients’ budgets. If you have a budget in mind, let us know upfront so we can plan around that. Now, we can’t beat the $30 logo package you can find at yougetwhatyoupayfor.com, but we like to think that we’re priced competitively for the quality you receive.

Bradstreet Englert Creative has worked with Chimera on many occasions to handle the overflow work in our agency. Caryn is adept with the Adobe Creative Suite software and knowledgeable about printing, which is an enormous plus for us since we specialize in print design. But probably what is most important to us is that we can trust them implicitly to keep our clients' work confidential, to provide truly print-ready designs (you might be surprised at the number of graphic designers who are unable to do this), and to collaborate on projects of any type or size with professionalism and a gracious attitude. They offer new and different ideas without being asked, with thoughtful consideration of the clients' needs and budgets.

Add "mind-reading" to our list of services

Chris Pruitt knew Caryn from a local networking group. After learning more about the services she could offer, he reached out about helping him brand his new business venture. Armed with a sketch and a concept in mind, Chris tried to convey his vision as best he could so that Caryn could capture it in his logo. After a brief meeting, Caryn got to work and presented him with a visual of his brand.

The results were exquisite

Chris was elated at how well Caryn seemed to understand his concept. He said even though “it didn’t match what I said” it “captured [my concept] beautifully.” Sometimes it takes a special set of ears and unique form of creativity to craft a representation of another person’s thoughts – some may call it “mind reading”, but we just call it good business. 

Since then, Chris and Caryn have worked together on several projects with various purposes. You can find his full testimonial below:

Caryn & I had become acquaintances through a business networking group. I hired her to help brand a new venture business concept. I had in mind a logo and color scheme to go along with my philosophy and meaning behind the business. It was important that these elements shine through my branding. The result was exquisite. Caryn seemed to understand what I meant even when it didn't match what I said and captured it beautifully in unifying my logo, business name and tag line. I have engaged her for another project with the same result.  Caryn has a wonderful blend of creativity and business sense for her client. I recommend her without reservation.
