We're so glad you asked. Being a nerd (or geek--if that’s your preferred nomenclature) is about being passionate about stuff. Do you like baseball? I mean, do you like, like baseball… to the point you know players’ hitting statistics? Congrats! You’re a nerd! Unlike being a nerd, however, nerd culture is primarily about the stereotypical things you’d expect nerds to be passionate about. We at Destination Moon are not the exception to this rule. We’re passionate about all those nerdy things.
How do you specialize in nerdy things?
Well, all of these nerdy things have their own industry. Whether it’s comic books or movies or comic book movies, they all have a business and an industry that requires branding and maintaining an online presence. No matter where you turn, graphic design influences your life in some way.
What are some of the industries you work with?
We never thought you’d ask! Here’s a list of industries that we’re passionate about.
… and others!
If you don’t see your business or industry listed, don’t fret! We want to work with you if you’re not a nerd as long as you’re passionate about your industry or if your industry is nerd-friendly. After all, we’re pretty big nerds.
Your website is a direct extension of your company and, for some, it’s the only way the public sees you. We build elegant, responsive user interfaces that look great on any device. Our designs are developed with a great amount of care and provide visual credibility to your business.
Branding and Identity are maybe one of the most important parts of your business. It helps you remain memorable and it can be the thing that sets you apart from your competitors. Good news! We’re great at building memorable identities that best embody your company. We believe the importance of logos and branding earn you the respect you deserve.
Your company’s needs go beyond branding and web design and so do our services. Whether you need marketing collateral, packaging, direct mail or something else, we strive to bring you fresh and unique designs that help you stand out from the crowd. We take all new projects one step at a time to truly find what’s going to work best for your specific needs.
It is our lunar mission to communicate the importance of well-crafted design solutions to various sized businesses and provide those solutions in a personal manner that only a small boutique can offer.
We promise to abide by the code of fair practice as set out by the Graphic Artist Guild and our own personal policies. We promise to only work on projects that we believe in and stand behind and we refuse to work on anything or with any party that is hateful, harmful or in anyway discriminatory in nature. We strive to be approachable—we’re always just an email away. We always put 100% into every project and refuse to cut corners or reuse work for your business. We promise that we really do love what we do and we want to make sure that our sincerity is never lost.
We know that hiring a designer is a big, expensive leap and sometimes that can be scary but we don't want you to be afraid. Below we've outlined what you’ll get from us from start to finish. That way, you can get an idea of everything we're gonna do for you and there’s isn't a veil of mystery (sounds spooky, right?). Of course, every project is unique in its own special-little-snowflake kind of way but at its most basic, this is what goes into every project.
After your request a proposal, Destination Moon creates an estimate of what we understand the project to be and what it will take to get it done. If we have any unanswered questions, we’ll make sure to ask them.
Investigation and Analysis
At this point, we refine and finalize the details of the project. During this, we’ll send you a creative brief for you to approve that outlines all agreed-upon project details. This document will serve as the foundation and will be the checklist where we compare our creative materials.
Based on the approved creative brief, Destination Moon present distinct concepts, showing the general “look and feel” of the proposed end product. You’ll choose your favorite, and we’ll go from there.
Based on the chosen concept direction, we flesh out the design, bringing it to a semi-final state that we’ll present as a detailed mock-up. If you’ve got feedback, we’ll figure out how to work it in a round of edits.
Destination Moon presents a working mock-up or prototype of the final product. You’ll get a copy of the mock-up and the final artwork being released to a printer, fabricator, or other production resource. Should you need help with onsite production quality control, art direction or troubleshooting, we’ll be all over it.
Post Project Debrief and Celebration
This is the part where everyone involved high-fives, does a small celebratory dance, and talks through how your project turned out. This is a great time to discuss what worked, what we might do differently, and brainstorm ideas for new business opportunities. We love building long-term business relationships with all of our clients. It means more celebratory dancing.
