    Notable Project

    An IT company acquired a new business and needed help rebranding so hired Miss Details Design. The project included designing a new logo, creating marketing materials such as taglines, business cards, and a brand story, and a website redesign.

    “We're a small business, so I think the biggest thing for us is … [having the owner] involved. As a small business owner, that's one of the benefits of working with another small business. I want to work with the principal and be able to have not only their attention but also their talent.”  – CEO, IT Service Company
