Working with Flip.

Working with us.
Much of what we do is invisible because creative work begins with original, unique ideas and inspirations. Our mind's eye is busy visualizing the end result and the process of creating that end result. Spending time to visualize many things -- from the client's image to the audience's perceptions -- and all the while planning and considering the technical processes necessary to take the concept from the mind to paper. You may see the end result, perhaps just a logo that's two inches square in size, and although you may be very pleased with the way it looks, it can be difficult to understand the value in something so small.

Working with you.
For you, as a client, its important to recognize that fast, cheap 'creative' work will give you either 'cookie-cutter' or bland results ... If you are someone who wants freshness, uniqueness and an end result that really says something about you and participates in achieving your goals, then its important to realize that good design work is very much like an iceberg ... 90% of its mass lays out of sight under the waterline.
