Working
With
NCD is
Different.
We value your time and ours. We don’t juggle your project among a zillion others, but fully partner with you as a select client, giving you our focus. As we work toward your goals together, we go through a process that ensures we present you with concepts and designs that are one-of-a-kind and truly reflective of your company’s mission.


Our Process

We Begin By Listening

We provide you with a creative brief — a series of specific questions that help us come to an understanding of your company’s ideal customers and target market, project goals, the messaging you need to convey, etc.

We Collaborate

We marry your creative brief with a quote. We discuss the details of the project scope and answer your questions.  Once a contract is signed, in receipt of a 50% deposit, we move into a deeper discussion to fully evaluate your goals, needs and vision to determine the direction of the project.

We Conceptualize

We brainstorm through all aspects of design: typography, colors, composition, and copy — studying what combinations would work best for the medium(s) chosen for your collateral. We take what we learned from our research and formulate a concept to support your mission. Then we sketch, sketch, sketch! We don’t just jump straight into the computer. We believe a design will be more unique and refined when it’s started on paper.

We Design

Once we have our sketches, chosen colors and typography down, we start to implement it all on a digital format, continually refining our work to create the most polish look.

We Review

We take a look at what you think and feel when you see the proofs and discuss any changes, guiding and honing your project on the path to being a stand out.

We Deliver

When you approve your custom designs and the remaining balance is paid, all agreed upon files are promptly delivered to you.

OVER A DECADE OF GRATIFIED CLIENTS

OUR INDIVIDUALIZED FOCUS has resulted in over a decade of gratified clients. Every project is important to us, and warrants the same level of attention and quality. We always go the extra mile to ensure your true satisfaction… or we haven’t done our job!

Client Praise

  • Nicte is hands down one of the most talented graphic designers I have ever worked with. Her ability to jump in on a project for a client she has never worked with before and produce a beautiful and effective designs is not a common trait. I was able to send Nicte my thoughts on the project, the clients brand standards and what I received back surpassed my expectations. Not to mention, our client was so pleased with the work and the campaign is thriving. I look forward to being able to work more with Nicte and would highly recommend her to anyone.
    Allison MercerAllison MercerDirector of Marketing l Digital & Social Media Manager
  • I highly recommend Nicte for your business marketing or branding needs. From project start to finish, Nicte is easily the most helpful and intuitive designer I’ve had the pleasure of working with. After one phone call, Nicte clearly understood the design needs of our business. Her attention to detail and her ability to be swift, yet thorough is difficult to find in other designers. An exceptional artist and the perfect balance between professional and personable, Nicte is definitely the creative designer you’ve been looking for.

  • Nicte has a phenomenal skill for figuring out exactly what her clients need. She asked me some questions, guided me through some ideas, and was able to nail down the perfect logo design for my business. Regardless of how many clients she has, she makes you feel like you are the only one.
    Lindsay BosquezLindsay BosquezAttorney | Bosquez Law, PA
  • As the owner of the non-profit Dogs on Deployment, we were looking for help with our branding and marketing materials. Nicte approached our organization. After talking with her about my vision for my organization, she came up with some ideas that were exactly what I had envisioned, but couldn’t put onto paper myself. After several months now of her guidance and talent, Dogs on Deployment has developed an amazing brand. Its functional, fun, flexible, and allows us growth while still maintaining our core look and feel. She has a very creative outlook, and with little input from me, she has come up with something that I am proud to share.
