Why do businesses choose 3thought for their graphic design projects?

We understand that business owners and marketing directors wear a lot of different hats. You're expected to have consistent, cost-effective solutions for all your marketing challenges. Whether that's growing your business, increasing brand awareness, raising money, communicating with your customers, or all of the above.

Finding reliable, affordable, fun-to-work with, graphic designers (who actually consider your business goals) is challenging and that's why 3thought is different.

Our talented team gets to know you, your business goals, and your customers.

Our Process: Creativity is Not Magic & Chaos

Professional practice and methods guide creative thinking to a successful outcome and add value. Every project is different, so we customize our graphic design process and milestones to suit your needs. However, there are still a few key steps that every client can expect.

  • Discovery

    The first step for all graphic design projects is to ask a lot of questions. What is the purpose, who is your audience, why do they care, what are their goals, and what is your desired result? When we have a complete picture, we make a plan and get to work. 

  • Concept

    This is the fun part. This is where the alchemy of creativity, experience and the expression of purpose come together. We’ll take our recommendations and ideas and distill them down into visual concepts for your review.

  • Revise

    Next, we refine our ideas, based on feedback from you and your team. We’ll provide the solutions, but we’ll look to you for guidance to identify any problems that we hadn’t accounted for. No one knows your business better than you. 

  • Final Execution

    Once a final concept is approved, we’ll prepare all necessary files. Whether you need a perfectly preflighted file for the printer, or a fully functioning and tested website, your project will be ready for its public debut.

  • Ongoing Help

    When we start a relationship with a new customer our goal is equal parts, accomplish the task at hand and become a trusted partner for future projects. Once we've established trust, we're available to help with any of your graphic needs.

Graphic design capabilities - Why you should hire a pro.

When you're choosing a graphic design agency, capabilities and experience are key. Our industry is completely unregulated, so it's important you ask a lot of questions and review a portfolio of past work because anyone can call themselves a graphic designer. Imagine if anyone could call themselves a doctor? You'd ask a lot of questions before you hired one. 

We could chat for hours about past projects, but we find that's not as fun (for you) as checking out our graphic design portfolio below. 

And don't forget we also provide Web Design, Logo Design, and Rebranding Services.

Testimonials - Nice things our clients say about us.

We asked our clients why they continue to choose to use 3thought for their graphic design needs and this is what they had to say...

  • Value

    "3thought suggested formatting our event invites so they would act as their own envelopes, and the RSVP card could be part of the invitation. This saved my company 1,000s of dollars."

  • Experience

    "3thought makes our marketing materials look incredibly high-end (which is very important for our target audience). We've enjoyed working with them for over 10 years."

  • Process

    "They're so creative and responsive to our needs. They're able to work effectively even with our not-for-profit budget, and have become an invaluable part of our team."

  • Results

    "The invitations 3thought created looked amazing and we are convinced we owe them the credit for our dramatic event attendance numbers"
