After years of working side-by-side we have joined our teams to work as one. We are a design and marketing agency that provides creative direction, thought leadership, and user experience design for print, web and digital media.
Good design can’t just be good, it has to be right — right for you, for your business and for your clients. Good design, whether visual or solution, needs to communicate your message effectively to your audience.
“How effective is the work we do for you?” This is the focus and the measure of our success. No matter how large or small the project, or how new or established the client, we never lose sight of the fact that you are looking to us to help build and grow your business; to expand and serve your audience. We’re proud of the work we do. All of it. Not just because it looks good, but because it works for you.
We don’t really have a mission statement, but if we did it would probably say something about “effectiveness”: how we strive to ensure that the work we do proves itself to be an effective tool for our clients’ success.
We’ve been in business for 20+ years and have never stopped learning to work better and smarter. We know when to listen and we know when to advise. We work collaboratively and transparently, and we confidently extend the promise of clear and ongoing communication.
We actually have a pretty great process in place to move your project from start to finish. We focus first on understanding your needs and objectives, and determine the budget and timeline that’s right for you. The early stages of the project’s concept development are highly collaborative, and once you’re happy with the project’s direction you can remain involved as much or as little as you like. We’ll look after everything, remaining flexible and transparent the entire way.
We always welcome projects that target our community, our environment, and help make our world better.
You need to get the word out, but what do you say and where does it go? And how is anyone going to hear you through all the noise? We can help you with your message, and help you be heard.
We’re pretty marketing savvy. We can help you craft your message, whether it’s the feature statements on your website or the content of a promotional email or brochure. We can help you enhance your website traffic with search engine marketing and optimization. And if we can’t do everything you need, we’ll call on other firms we work with to ensure you get everything you need.
Brent just sat down with me and helped me navigate the maze of handling client reviews online. He showed me the places I should have my clients post those reviews, helped me set up the business Google+ account and, as he does every time I sit down with him, made online a friendlier
place to be. Thank-you Brent!
The attention to detail we bring to large projects is equally present for the smaller ones. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to win our commitment to making your project successful.
We believe that “client support” is not a telephone support line — it’s being there every step of the way and long after the work is done. It’s making sure you have access to the services or tools you need to keep things running smoothly.
We have all learned our lessons. We’ve got to rotate the tires and water the plants and eat right. Everything needs ongoing care, whether it’s keeping your website current or taking advantage of new technologies or just keeping in regular contact with your clients. We know you’re going to need support — from website maintenance to hosting services to ongoing email campaigns— and we’ve got everything in place to help you. Now and later.
The end result is spectacular, we get raving reviews from our customers, and our main objectives have been achieved. [TrueFit] is easy to use and an incredibly easy to learn fitting platform, with a very stylish modern look and feel which is scalable for years to come.
The Kobayashi Zeitguys team led the process through strategy development, design, content development, usability, implementation and staff training. At each stage, Kobayashi Zeitguys showed a level of expertise that went beyond our expectations.
We have a great team and don’t mind boasting about it. We work together in an open office environment, collaborate on just about everything, and we truly enjoy working with one another. (Can’t beat that.)
We believe this is important enough to say in big letters, and it’s one of the main reasons we do such good work. We’re not only good at what we do but we enjoy doing it. We enjoy the challenges that your project will give us, big or small. You need our help and we’re here to make your project successful. We will all have our own opinions about what best to do and why, and we’re not opinionated. We’re talented and not arrogant. Detailed oriented, and we don’t micro-manage. No word of a lie – each and every one of us is looking forward to working with you.
Accountability is an important concept here. As team members we are accountable to each other for the work we do and the support we give. As a vendor to you we are accountable for the promises we make and the bar we set to measure your project’s success.
This team was very professional, patient, and understanding of our needs. They were also very responsive to our unique website requirements. We felt like they were truly partners in this venture, through and through. What makes them a cut above the rest is their creativity and attention to detail.
We stay late to make sure the job gets one more proofread, one more design tweak, one more performance test.
The team at Kobayashi Online is dependable, creative, and really really good at what they do. We at Whiteboard Consulting Group are thrilled with our new website and our new logo!
